The Humble Law Firm, PLLC, was formed by Macy A. Melton in 2012 to begin a solo estate planning practice with a focus on the needs of families with a special needs child, whatever the age. As a mother of a son with moderate autism, she had known the deep concerns of what would happen to her child when she and his father were no longer able to.
Also of concern was the notion of providing support but allowing her son to have the maximum independence to pursue his dreams in a safe environment. With the knowledge that there were many families facing the same concerns, she set out to create a practice that would address their concerns.
Along the way, she has expanded her practice to include other areas that impact these families such as Guardianships, planning for Government Benefits, and even divorce planning regarding child support after the child reaches adulthood.
With a background in nonprofit finance and governance, Macy serves on several boards of nonprofits related to special needs. She has expanded her practice to help in the formation and governance of other nonprofits.
As a mom with a special needs child, I know your challenges and not only bring over 30 years’ experience as an attorney, but can also relate to your struggles on a personal level. It is well documented that families raising a special needs child experience stress on elevated levels which affect all family members to varying degrees, albeit in different ways. My own family continues to be impacted and we are all still challenged by the issues that arise when you have a special needs situation. It is an ongoing evolving journey. I work with families like yours to provide smart, sensible, affordable legal solutions that are flexible to anticipate issues that may arise.

I’ve been an attorney for over 30 years. I stay at the forefront of ever-changing laws and am fully committed to meet or exceed client expectations. I promise to do my best to give effective representation while making complex legal issues understandable. I can explain complicated legal concepts in a language you can understand.
I have developed a network of providers of services relating to special needs and want to be able to serve as a resource to you and your family. My hope is that through my representation we will develop a relationship in which you can feel free to call with questions in the future. If I can’t answer them I hope to be able to direct you to someone who can help.
