Melvin has always promptly returns calls and emails, gives educated, clearly stated advice. Appointments are made and kept. I have already recommended Melvin and would do so again.


If you’re looking for a young, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic attorney, Melvin Shaw is the perfect fit for you. He goes far beyond his job expectations to protect you. He is honest and fair. Additionally, he is very easy to communicate with clients and other lawyers. He has a very nice, enjoyable personality and I would recommend his services to any individual who wants someone who will get the job done in a timely and efficient manner.


My spouse and I initially utilized Melvin for estate planning. He was extremely thorough as he explained our options and made recommendations in setting up our will, living will and family trust. Since that time we’ve purchased two homes and created a small business. He crafted the purchase agreements and advised us on each of those endeavors. These things are so personal. It was important that we not only use an attorney that was professional and competent but one that gave us the the time we needed, was genuine and understanding. We’ve recommended him to family and friends. We’d use him again in a second, he’s great!


Melvin recently helped my husband and I with the sale of our home. He came highly recommended, and was very quick to return my initial phone call. He did an excellent job of answering all of the question we had. As first time sellers, the timeline he provided helped us successfully navigate this process with ease. He was upfront about what we could expect in terms of fees, which we appreciated. In addition to being very friendly and easy to work with, Melvin proved to be very knowledgeable and reliable as well. We would recommend him without reservation, and will seek out his services in the future as needed.

T.M. & K.M.

We have used Mr Shaw for 2 different real estate transactions, and he has been great to work with on both. He also looked over my wife’s contract when she graduated and joined a practice. He has always kept us up to date on where we are at in the process, and is very helpful with telling us what we need to do. Would strongly recommend him.


I think MELVIN SHAW is an excellent attorney. He drew up new wills for us, as well as durable power of attorney for my husband and me. He was very attentive to our needs, professional and personable. I feel his fees were reasonable as well. I would certainly recommend him to family and friends.


I found positive information about Mr. Shaw on this website and called him with a question. I don’t need to hire an attorney yet. I can comment only on this telephone conversation, and that’s why I have rated him only in the two categories I experienced: his knowledge and his responsiveness to my question. He answered my question very clearly. If I do need to be his client in the future, I definitely would trust him. He was very professional, polite, kind and helpful on the telephone. I felt he gave me his complete attention, he was interested in my situation, and he listened carefully. I couldn’t have wished for anything more or better in an initial telephone conversation.


Working with Melvin was a very low stress experience during very emotional times. He explain things well and walk me through the process of being the executor of my father's estate. He understood that I had a busy work schedule and communicated by email. I would certainly recommend him. I plan on having do an update on my will and related documents.

Melvin was very helpful, considerate, and willing to explain every little question I had. As someone who lost a loved one and had never been through this situation he was very respectful at all times. There was a lot that I had on my plate and he took it step by step right along with me. That made me feel very comfortable and made it easier to navigate through this trying time.

Melvin has supported us through estate planning and purchasing land. He went above and beyond each interaction in meeting our needs, protecting us legally, and providing compassion and patience. Melvin took the necessary time to get to know us as clients. He made himself available to reply to emails, take phone calls, coordinate Zoom meetings, etc. Without a doubt, we will use Melvin's law services again in the future. We have complete faith in what he offers his clients.

I have worked with Melvin for many years and he is by far the best lawyer I have ever worked with. He is so friendly, approachable, dependable, highly knowledgeable, and really great at helping me understand various legal aspects of my business. I recommend him frequently to others needing legal help and advice, and they have always come back so happy with the job he did and grateful for his expertise. I couldn't recommend him enough.

Mr. Shaw is knowledgeable, clear, and compassionate. Our family needed someone who could work with us on a matter that required sensitivity and needed to be completed quickly, and we received great service and peace of mind. Mr. Shaw and his administrative assistant respond to communication quickly - they are very accessible. I would highly recommend this attorney.

Working with Mel was a great experience. He was responsive, thorough, and organized in both his communications and his approach to decision-making. I appreciated that he took the time to understand my priorities in the matter we were working on, and I never felt rushed in any of our conversations or timelines. Most importantly, his diligence kept me from finalizing a transaction that wasn't for me. I would recommend Mel -- and work with him again! -- with zero reservations.

I am thoroughly impressed by the level of professionalism at Melvin O. Shaw's practice. From the first call during our consultation, I noticed that Melvin had that rare combination of friendly communication backed by a skillful knowledge of the law. Our case seemed complicated and confusing, but Melvin put our worries aside as he expertly and efficiently handled the matter with a positive resolution. I highly recommend Melvin and look forward to working with him and his wonderful assistant again in the future.
