The Melonakos Law Firm focuses exclusively on personal injury and wrongful death cases. This laser-sharp focus allows us to get to the bottom of cases and fight for the outcome our clients need to put the pieces of their lives back together after a serious car accident, truck accident, or other personal injury incident. Founded by Mike Melonakos, a humble grandchild of Greek immigrants who owned restaurants and bars and taught him the important values of hard work and exceptional customer service, our firm assists clients throughout South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia.
At The Melonakos Law Firm, we provide compassionate counsel for the injured. After you have been seriously injured because of someone else’s negligence, you deserve an ally in your corner who will advocate for you every step of the way. One thing that truly sets our firm apart is how much Mike and The Melonakos team care about each and every client he represents. Mike has handpicked and personally trained his team, ensuring that everyone holds the same important values he holds dear. Clients always compliment our genuineness, approachable nature, and compassionate attitude. Our goal is to make whatever situation you had when you walked through the doors a better one when your legal services conclude.
We provide personalized attention to each and every client. When you choose The Melonakos Law Firm to represent you in your personal injury matter, you will never have to feel like a number. You will speak directly to your lawyer and receive additional support from our team. We are strategic in the number of cases we take so that we never have to sacrifice one-on-one attention simply because we’ve taken on too many cases. Our goal isn’t to settle your case as fast as possible; it is to deliver the specific results you want. We take on a smaller number of cases so we can dedicate our time and energy to our clients. We also have a separate litigation department to help handle cases that are being prepared for trial, which further allows us to align our legal services to achieve your desired outcome. We take great pride in our personal approach to personal injury.
For over a decade, Mike has fought for his clients in and out of the courtroom. During this time, he has obtained hundreds of favorable verdicts and settlements. He is one of the few lawyers in the area who has tried over 20 jury trials and another 30-40 bench trials. He also has experience as an insurance defense lawyer, so he knows how the other side operates. This also makes him a formidable opponent at the negotiation table because he truly understands the value of his clients’ cases. Mike’s tenacity and zealous legal representation have allowed him to recover more than $50 million for his clients.
However, what is more important than the financial compensation we recover for our clients is their satisfaction. We believe this is the most important achievement. Our advocates fight tirelessly to help people – that’s why we’re in this business. We want to improve our clients’ lives and give them the support they need and deserve. Our clients have experienced this dedication first-hand, rewarding us with a perfect 10.0 Avvo rating. Mike has also been named a Rising Star (2019-2022) by Super Lawyers and as a National Trial Lawyers Top 40 under 40 (2019).
Mike is a family man. After spending a few years in Atlanta, Mike moved back to his wife’s hometown. He enjoys spending time with his family and says that becoming a father taught him how to have a greater capacity to love, not just for his own family but for others as well. This perspective drives him to help improve his clients’ lives through compassionate legal representation. Mike is also supportive of the local community, assisting with Greek Festivals and appearing in a cover band. He puts his heart into everything he does and welcomes you to reach out to him and his firm if you need our help.
