For over 40 years, the Law Office of Jerry W. Melton has helped Dallas-area residents with a number of legal issues – including family law, criminal defense, and civil litigation. Our law firm is trusted to provide comprehensive legal care to protect you, your assets, and your family.

With so much at stake, you deserve a qualified lawyer who can explore all your options with you. Jerry W. Melton is an attorney who is certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in both Family Law and Criminal Law, giving our firm a unique perspective on your case.

According to the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, Board Certification is a mark of excellence and a distinguishing accomplishment. Within the Texas legal community, Board Certification means an attorney has substantial, relevant experience in a select field of law as well as demonstrated, and tested, special competence in that area of law. This designation sets them apart as being an attorney with the highest, public commitment to excellence in their area of law. An attorney who specializes in a specific area of law, and is certified as a specialist by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, must have a significant number of cases and/or issues pertaining to that area of law. Additionally, a lawyer must be re-certified every five years by submitting necessary information to the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, including references from judges and lawyers in this area and proof of having acquired the necessary number of hours of continuing legal education. Few Texas attorneys have answered the challenge laid down 42 years ago by the Supreme Court of Texas and the State Bar of Texas to “...serve the public interest and advance the standards of the legal profession.”

Dual specialty is rare in the law community, and can be a valuable asset in your case. Whether you are confronted by a family law issue, or are in need of a reliable criminal defense, or possibly both – you can rest easy knowing that our law firm has decades of experience working for you.

We work to provide consistent and transparent service to our clients. We answer calls and e-mails promptly, and communicate with you frequently on the status of your case. The legal process can be intimidating, but our team takes every measure to help navigate you through your case.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
