Helping Families Like Yours

Melinda S. Bueno Attorney


I am a West Michigan native, and was raised in the Greater Grand Rapids area.  I chose to become a lawyer so I can help people understand and navigate through the legal system.  I am passionate about fighting vigorously for my client’s best interests.  I am honored to be serving my local community.

While pursuing my law degree, I worked in the areas of family law and criminal law.  While furthering my education, I participated in Trial Advocacy and Moot Court.  This experience gave me a working knowledge of advocating on behalf of my clients in the Courtroom.

For the past several years prior to joining the MI Family Law Group, I had been working at a small Grand Rapids law firm where I have been primarily handling family law cases.

When I am not practicing law, I enjoy spending quality time with my husband, two kids, and two chihuahuas.  I also enjoy running marathons, reading and going to the beach.

    "She Truly Cares"
    If you want an attorney who makes you feel like they are more interested in fighting for the rights of children rather than expanding their pocketbooks, I highly recommend my attorney Kristen Wolfram.

    "Beyond the Call of Duty"
    Jonathan Hecksel went way above the call of duty to make sure that me and my husband were treated fairly with our case. I would say hands down that he is a great lawyer, and anyone should be grateful to be represented by him.

    Matt was very informative. Gave me options pertaining to my case. Kept me informed as to the progress of my case. Was with me in court and worked on protection my rights.

    "He's On Your Side"
    Matt was a savior during the worst time in my life. Matt was extremely helpful with getting me the custody of my kids. He guided me through this rough time that I would surely not be able to do by myself.

    Matt DeLange is great. If you have questions, he takes the time to make sure you understand the answers and know what to expect going forward. Worth every penny.
