“My family and I have been in a couple accidents. Choosing a attorney to represent us at first was a scary process. Because I heard stories of attorneys doing it just for the money and not caring of the people they are representing. Melissa and the GLP team was a blessing. Melissa right away came to meet us and gave us her undivided attention and was eager to hear what happened. She made the process easy and simple us to understand. During our case Melissa always stayed in contact. She was always available for any questions we had. The One thing that we really enjoyed and loved about Melissa was. She cared. That’s the reason we referred Melissa to our son and anyone else they wants a attorney who cares for the people they are representing. Thank you Melissa for your time and a great job.” -J.C.G.


“Never having to hire an attorney before, I was quite nervous. My first impression of Melissa Westberg was her confidence and how she makes you feel at ease. She listened intently – even when I got somewhat emotional while telling my story. With a few follow-up questions, she felt that I had a very good case. Melissa was very responsive with every detail and always kept me advised. She took the worry out of everything. She articulates extremely well, so that you can easily understand the process. Very calming. Very honest. Very personable. I think that when you have someone who believes in you and your case, it is very easy to put your trust in them to represent you well. I would highly recommend Melissa to everyone. The outcome of my case? We won. Thank you, Melissa. I will always be forever grateful for your dedication to making things right.”


“I highly recommend Melissa Westberg if you need someone to lead you through the challenge of recovering from car collision injuries. Melissa and Martin and the GLP team did an excellent job on my cases. They are prompt in their communication, compassionate in their approach, and are top-notch in reaching settlements that exceed expectations.” -B.B.


“Melissa was great, super patient with all my questions. Always on my side. And she is making strides to be more and more LGBTQ friendly. Highly recommend!” -L.M.
