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
44 Questions Answered
Q. My husband hit my ex’s car window, now he’s being charged with disorderly conduct. Is getting an attorney worthwhile?
A: It is always a good idea to consult with an attorney. Disorderly conduct can be charged as an infraction or as a misdemeanor. You should definitely at least speak to an attorney so they can advise your husband on the potential penalties of the charge. Having the disorderly conduct could come back to bite you if your ex ever tried to modify your custody.
Q. I receive a speeding ticket in UT for driving 92 in a 70 mph zone. I live in CA. Can I contest without court appearance?
A: Many courts are still allowing people to appear by video when they live out of state. You can either contact the court and see if they'll allow you to appear by video. Or, you can contact an attorney in Utah who handles traffic tickets to assist you.
Q. I have a appointment with the DMV for my licence because of a driving with metabo in my system. What am i supposed ……
A: You don't say anything. You need to hire an attorney. I never have my clients testify at the DLD hearing. You need to hire an attorney to assist you. DUIs are complicated and you are going to end up hurting your case.
