I Provide A Personalized And
CLIENT-ORIENTED EXPERIENCE

My name is Melinda Knowles. I will work directly with you, taking the time to get to know you as a person and to learn about your special circumstances and the struggles that led you to seek legal counsel. As I listen to your story, I promise that I will never pass judgment but will always offer encouragement, understanding, and compassion.

I realize that facing a criminal charge is both challenging and stressful, and it requires that you have a lawyer who is not only knowledgeable in the law but also familiar with the legal system. I possess both of those qualities, which is why I am the right choice for your legal advocate. My job is to protect and defend YOUR rights, and this job is not one that I take lightly.

I Have The
EXPERIENCE AND KNOWLEDGE TO DEFEND YOU

For more than seven years, I have served as a public defender for Horry and Georgetown counties. I decided to open my private practice in 2013 to help the community with criminal and family law issues.

Being charged with a crime is not a matter to take lightly. As your attorney, I have extensive experience and knowledge to defend and protect your rights and future diligently.

Whether you are disputing a traffic violation, facing a DUI/DUAC charge or dealing with an attempted murder charge, I can help you. I will evaluate every detail of your case to help develop a solid strategic defense tailored to your specific legal needs and produce the best possible results.

Criminal law, traffic offenses and family law issues aren’t legal problems you want to take on alone. Trust that I will represent your best interests no matter what your legal battle is.

What My Clients Say

Three things come to mind in conducting business with Melinda and her team: communication, accessibility, and ease of doing business.  Additionally, they were friendly and professional which is just what you would expect for a local, small business. We really appreciate their ability to handle our needs and concerns quickly! Regardless of the size or extent of a legal matter, it’s nice to work with someone who can ease the anxiety associated and instill confidence in the process. Thanks again for all your help!

I called Melinda Knowles the first time (in full crisis mode), she was patient and understanding right away. I immediately knew our family’s welfare was in good hands. She constructed a great plan for us. She and her assistant have been very responsive to questions, follow through couldn’t have been better. And let me tell you she has been a dynamic advocate for our family! Thanks so much for all you do!
