"As the head of HR, I had the pleasure of working closely with Melissa Frank as Wintec Industries first General Counsel. She was an excellent addition to our executive team. Melissa is an extremely competent and a brilliant attorney. She brought a terrific business sense, that I have not seen in other in-house attorneys I have worked with in the past. Melissa had the ability to navigate easily through our very complicated company structure that included three very different business units. Melissa always had the company’s best interest in mind and often provided solutions to difficult problems, even outside of her legal role. She is always on the quest to increase her skills and knowledge and was a terrific partner to me. She is highly productive and was managing many complicated priorities. She always made herself available to her client groups and operates at the highest level of integrity. I highly recommend Melissa to any organization who recognizes her rare and exceptional talents and expertise."

"I was very pleased to work with Melissa and believe she was instrumental in demonstrating how proper legal controls and contracting can safeguard a business. I appreciated her intellectual capability and business breadth. She also has the ability to frame legal concepts by using analogies, making them easily understood by everyone. Her abilities extend beyond the law, as she can be a true business advisor and coach as well."
