Biography

Melton Law was founded by William L. Melton. William has taken pride in serving his clients and his community for many years. After experiencing his own encounters with the legal system he decided to dedicate his career to the pursuit of law. William has been involved in proactively changing to improve the community in multiple ways throughout his career. In addition to fighting for his clients in the courtroom, William is also actively involved in making changes at the legislative level. In 2015, William helped lobby and successfully pass the alternative parent-time schedule. This new law substantially increased the amount of time that non-custodial parents receive with their children. Additionally, William is an appointed member by the governor to a state Child Support Guidelines Committee. The committee is responsible for making recommendations to the legislature for changes to the child support guidelines.

William has worked on hundreds of different cases from minor traffic infractions to major sex crimes and white-collar crimes. William is an experienced trial attorney with experience on all sides of a criminal case. During law school, William clerked for the Hon. Judge Parker in the Third Judicial District Court, he assisted clients in the Idaho Street Law Clinic and worked in the Utah County Attorney's Office prosecuting cases in both their misdemeanor and major crimes divisions. William loves working with his clients and doing everything in his power to help them resolve their cases with the absolute best possible outcome.

Legal Answers
23 Questions Answered
Q. Given a ticket for speeding on I15, officer didn't write my license info on the ticket, just my name. NY state. plead no
A: The short answer is no. There is a misconception that some missing or inaccurate information on a ticket is grounds to have it dismissed, but unfortunately that isn't the case. Any issues in the ticket can be fixed by the prosecutor and things like your driver license number are just ways to identify you.
Q. Whyd you assume I just wanted to complain about loosing a case?
A: I would suggest reviewing the agreement you signed with the attorney and seeing if they will discuss it with you. If they told you it would cost one amount and changed it it may explain why in the agreement you signed. It is impossible for anyone to explain why an attorney would have advised you a certain way without knowing all of the facts of you case. I always suggest being upfront with the attorney about your concerns and see if he will explain them to you.
Q. I had a bad court experience and got told to get an attorney or go to the BAR and I want to know if it's worth my time
A: You cannot go to the Utah Bar because you had a bad court experience. Attorneys have certain standards that they must follow for ethical and other reasons. The Bar oversees those ethical guidelines. They're not the attorney's supervisor that you complain to if you lost a case. If you feel your attorney did something wrong, I would first speak to them about it. You can also consult with another attorney and they could help you determine if there was something wrong.
