“I am a family law attorney who has been practicing law here in western Nevada County for thirty-two years. I do mediation as well as litigation in the family law field. For more than a decade, I have primarily used Mel Harris for any appraisal work needed in my practice. I find Mel to be prompt, thorough and fair. Also, I have found that other family law attorneys working on the other side of cases I am handling, are quick to agree to use Mel Harris as a joint appraiser because of his reputation for being fair.
Very truly yours,
