Melanie made a difficult situation very easy to get through. Her and the staff responded timely whenever I reached out. I would recommend using Melanie's services.
I've never needed an attorney before, so choosing one for my divorce was a challenge for me. After the initial consultation I felt comfortable with my decision to go with Melanie Demps and was glad I did. She did exactly what a client should expect from a great attorney. Ms Demps is clearly an expert in her field. She was responsive to any inquiries I had and followed through in a timely manner to all proceedings. Ms Demps expertise allows her to perform tasks with minimum billable time. She was always fair and detailed with her billing, I felt I was getting my monies worth for the time she spent on my case. I highly recommend Melanie Demps. Although I hope to never need an attorney again I would not hesitate call on Ms Demps again.
I am so grateful to Melanie for representing me in my case.I called several attorneys but they didn't want to take my case because they said it was a lost case and time consuming.I called this Law Firm and Melanie took the challenge.A petition for relocation to France with the opposite party having full custody of my son for 13 years.Melanie started working the very same hour after we signed the contract agreement.I felt the battle so intense, but i could see Melanie's knowledge and experience in the middle of the battle.She is honest and realistic with her words on what the outcome could be but not intimidated to go for the impossible.Long story short, Melanie not only was able to get me full custody of my son, but i was granted must of what i was asking for without having to go to court.Melanie, thank you so much and if i ever need legal assistance again, i will not hesitate to call you again to represent me.
Melanie is an excellent attorney that was able to produce prompt results in my case that far exceeded my expectations. I was in an abusive DV situation where I was being denied the joy of being a father and she was able to get me time sharing quickly to be able to see my daughter again.I highly recommend her services!
I was looking for a lawyer who was professional yet reputable in the field, responsive yet attentative with my case and lastly straight forward no nonsense. I found those qualities in Melanie. I would definitely recommend her ! Thank you Melanie for your assistance ~

Went above and beyond to resolve my case.
I highly rate Dorothy McMichen’s well established law firm and recommend their professional staff to anyone in need of legal representation. They have excellent communication skills, both oral and written, give great practical advice, and are excellent listeners. They are always accessible, have great judgement, are creative (can think outside the box), and are always fully prepared, either for your office visits or in the courthouse. They believe your problem is their problem and they will do everything in their power to make you successful. They are not good lawyers, they are great lawyers. They know the law inside out and certainly give you more than your money’s worth.They deliver results.The office staff is excellent.I truly felt they worked personally for myself.
Ms. Demp is a great aggressive yet understanding attorney. Would definitely recommend.
Happy I went with this firm. They made the whole divorce process seamless. Both Ms. Demps and her paralegal communicated really well to me about everything I needed to know and always answered any questions I had. The whole divorce process is really awkward in itself and they made it as easy as I possibly feel it could have gone. The price was fair for all the services they provided. I would recommend them.
Melanie Demps was upfront, understanding, helpful, and very professional. If you are looking for a team of lawyers dedicated to helping you in Florida, they are the way to go!
I am beyond impressed and forever grateful for everyone that helped me get through the stressful time of creating a parenting plan. Ms. Demps was very easy to talk to, and on the day of the mediation, she was definitely there for me as an advocate! Her paralegal, TIffany, is also just as helpful, and wonderful. I would definitely recommend this attorney for anyone needing a family lawyer.
Ms. Demps was the calm in my storm of divorce. She treated me as a human being and not a paycheck. She was available to answer any questions that I had. She is very informative, polite, respectful, and calming. For anybody going through a divorce, I recommend this Law Firm
I called the office after googling an attorney in Orlando. Rates are very resonable, professional and friendly staff. Processed my paper work very qui kly. I am extremely pleased with the timeline, knowledge, follow through and positive outcome of my case. I would highly recommend this firm
Mrs. Dorothy McMichen is a dedicated and incredible attorney who pays attention to details and concerns. From meeting her in my consultation, to hiring her, and being in the courtroom, Mrs. McMichen was understanding and professional. She and her staff kept me aware of my case making sure I was prepared and answered any questions in a timely manner. Without her exceptional professionalism, calmness, disposition, experience, guidance, and the ability to see the big picture, to seek custody of my children, the entire experience would have been catastrophic. Dorothy worked tirelessly to change the the previous mediation agreement. I highly recommend Dorothy McMichen to anyone seeking the Best Family Law Attorney in Orlando, Florida.
I have am a current client of the Law firm of McMichen , Cinami,& Demps.Ms. Demps has been very professional and most of all she cares about you the client. She is very detail in making sure you understand each step of the process and takes the time to answer all questions that I have had in this process. I am very impressed on the quick follow-up on questions that I have had and knowing she has my best interest in hand. Thanks to the entire team, for your professional services and most of all being very understanding and caring doing this time.
The attorneys at McMichen, Cinami & Demps are all fantastic. Melanie represented me in my Domestic Violence case. During a very difficult time in my life, she made everything so much easier. She was professional and straight forward, but she was also empathetic and kind. She was able to help me find a resolution that would best suit my individual situation. She's logical, down-to-earth and in tune with all those around her. I would highly recommend her, and I would definitely return to her should I need any more help in the future.
I really appreciate Melanie Demps representing me. This is the first law firm I've found that was so RESPONSIBLE with my money!...I've put down many retainers to different attorney's over the years, never to see it again! This firm is NOT that way, Melanie Demps, and her legal assistants Kristen, and Kelly are all very professional and responsive to my questions, and I was always aware how much of my retainer was left, and given plenty of notice when it was time to add more...I was pleasantly surprised when I got an itemized bill after volumes of correspondence and I still had a CREDIT! When choosing a law firm, it's not the dollar amount per hour that's important, its what is DONE with that hour that makes a good law firm. Melanie always gave sound advise and fully explained my options whether they were good or bad, and utilized her team to stretch my retainer farther than I've ever seen a retainer stretched! Melanie will treat you and everyone (including the opposition) with fairness, honesty, and good old fashioned common sense. This, you may find, is rare in attorneys! Melanie is a skilled mediator, so if you really want a solution and DON'T want to argue with your opposition (which only costs more money by the way), then McMichen, Cinami & Demps is the right choice!
I have retained Sonica for over 5 years now. She was my first lawyer that I ever had to of hired during my divorce. And today is a testament of why I continue to retain her. On Sep. 18th my ex-wife tried to petition the Orange County court system and asked the court for full custody of my two boy's. And on that day, Sonica represented me with class and professionalism. To make a long story short, my ex-wife lost her petition, and now, Sonica is writing the final judgment to the outcome. I not only recommend her as your lawyer, but I have been sending her my friends and coworkers as future clients.
Friendly, swift,efficient, and wise.
Melanie always gave me her undivided attention in all forms of communication & gave fantastic advice when needed. I was able to get a hold of her when I had questions, too.Excellent communication all the way around. I always felt "in the loop" because I was included in any communications with opposing counsel and/or courts.Very organized & thorough--she often remembered things about my case I'd forgotten.She & her staff were all very friendly & helpful.
