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
Q. How would I go about finding more information about a newly issued warrant unbeknownst to my knowledge?
A: As Aric mentioned you need to hire an attorney. They will likely be able to arrange to have the warrant recalled and start collecting discovery to find out more about the case.
Q. Rights under restraining order
A: You should contact the local police department and ask them to assist you in recovering property. Many times they can help facilitate that without having to go to court. If not, then you will need to request a hearing with the court that issued the protective order and ask for it to be amended to allow you to go recover your property.
Q. How long after receiving a traffic ticket does an officer have to report it ?
A: They don't have a specific time that they must report it. If they fail to do so within a certain period it could result in an issue with the statute of limitations. If the ticket was just a regular infraction they have one year to bring charges (submit the ticket, or have the prosecutor file the charges for the ticket).
