Awards & Recognition

What Our Clients & Referral Partners Say:

My husband and I met with Attorney Gleick to prepare an estate plan for the two of us. We have several assets and wanted to make sure we were prepared and that everything was in order so we did not need to worry about the future and what would happen in case of the unexpected! Attorney Gleick was very informative and extremely knowledgeable and wonderful to work with on such a sensitive topic. Estate planning is something we did not want to put off until it was too late. Attorney Gleick made sure we are prepared for the future. I highly recommend Attorney Gleick.


Melissa is a colleague I can count on to handle a variety of estate planning matters for my clients who are in need of reviewing/updating a Will, Health Care Proxy and Durable Power of Attorney, Trust (educational or special needs) or probate administration. When going through a divorce, my clients need someone who can provide estate planning legal assistance with compassion. Melissa is just such a person. She is more than just a smart and skilled lawyer, she is a person who cares.


We hired Attorney Gleick for a complicated family estate plan and she excelled at handling the process. She understood our concerns, addressed the challenges that we presented, and we were very pleased and comfortable with the results. We have recommended her to friends, and they also found that she brings a certain understanding that not all attorneys have. We have been very happy with working with Melissa.
