Attorney Phillips was a wonderful attorney to work with. She listened, was compassionate, supportive, honest and patient while at the same time professional, timely and efficient. She clearly articulated the law and all options available to me as the client. Moreover, she was very knowledgeable about the law governing my case and had the added experience to be able to inform me of both what were practical approaches and likely outcomes. She worked hard on my behalf and alongside me. Attorney Phillips has all the attributes of a great attorney -- both a highly effective and compassionate family law lawyer.
Megan Phillips has been my lawyer from the beginning of my divorce. I came in very strong minded and Megan was able to fight for the things that I felt were important to me. She was trustworthy and always followed-up with me on any questions that I had. She was also able to tell me realistically what to expect and she was always reassuring when a problem came up. She knows the law and was always able to explain the situation to me in layman's terms so that I would understand. I would very much recommend her; in fact, I already have! If you have the unfortunate opportunity of going through a divorce, you want Megan Phillips on your side! :) I think it was her words when she said at the end of my divorce, "we won the divorce lottery!" It was an accurate assessment!!!
I had another attorney hired to represent me in my divorce. That attorney had completely dropped the ball. I called around and Megan was the third phone call I had made. I was frantic that my case had gone too long without good representation to be saved. She offered to take my case on, even though it meant a lot of extra work for her. Hiring her was the best thing I could've done. She took everything on and within a very short period of time, she had everything under control and totally turned my case around. She kept me in the loop and made sure I knew what was going on at every step. She got everything together and my case was stronger and moved along better than it had until then. She got my case to where it was fair for both parties and got me an end in sight. I am only sorry I didn't find her in the beginning of my case. She has restored my faith in attorneys and I am forever grateful that she took on my case. I can't say enough good things about Megan and her knowledge, compassion and making the outcome fair. She is absolutely wonderful and I will recommend her to anyone that needs a lawyer.
By the time I met Megan, my situation was dire both emotionally and financially. My situation seemed unbelievable and my mental health added to the question of "plausibility" of what happened to me. Megan was able to quickly and professionally suggest an arrangement with me and a family member that allowed us to move forward with my case and that worked with my mental health status.
Megan's handling of my case:
Megan never made me feel ashamed either in her body language, in her words or in her communications by email.
Megan was professional, kind and methodical in handling my case. She was not brisk, abrupt, curt or rude.
Megan gave me and my family member estimates before each step in my case and adhered to them.
If we went beyond an estimate it was due to my own extra requests when I needed more answers in a particular area to assure me. Even if the question had already been answered by Megan. She was understanding in my request for additional assurances.
Megan answered all my questions quickly and located specialists in the area of my situation if one was needed.
Megan followed up with me after each point of contact and made me aware of the next step.
Megan kept me informed and responded to all my questions quickly.
Megan explained items if I did not understand and helped me understand the impact or meaning on my case.
Megan gave me the time I needed to compile paper work or deliver a response to her on my case. Megan would check in with me if she was waiting for me to get her paper work but she took into consideration my mental and physical health and did not Over contact me.
Megan was kind and professional in her approach. For example: If she needed me to meet a paper deadline she would give me a bit of encouragement to get the papers to her by a specific date.
Megan always kept my family member involved and included them on every email and meeting. This gave me assurance and kept my case moving along efficiently.
Megan got me the answers I needed to know for my case, which has allowed me to move forward with my life.
I would recommend Megan to others.
It was a true pleasure to work with Megan regarding Family Law. Her knowledge and mediation skills helped us understand the law and kept the decision-making out of the court room. I would highly recommend Megan if you are seeking legal counsel as she treated us with kindness and respect, explained the law so it was easy to understand and fought hard for what was important to our family. She is a great communicator and kept us informed every step of the way. She was always available when we needed her. We couldn't be happier with the final results.
Megan has helped me with my case in every way possible. She has kept me well informed and updated on how my case is progressing. All of my questions have been answered completely and in a very prompt manner. She has demonstrated knowledge with my type of case and I am completely satisfied with her advice and direction. I have no doubt I am well represented by Megan.
Megan helped my company in reviewing our employee handbook and various HR related questions. She is professional, smart and timely. I highly recommend hiring her for any business legal advice.
My case involved back due child support. After receiving absolutely no results from the CSRU, I was referred to Megan. She immediately recognized the issue and the importance of obtaining a fast and effective resolution. She provided a deadline to the opposing counsel, and did not budge. As a result of her dedication and determination, I began receiving the back child support payments within 45 days of retaining Megan's services. She is worth every penny spent, and will definitely call upon her again should I need further legal assistance in the future.
I used to tell a joke that goes like this: What does a Lawyer and Sperm have in common?
Answer: They both have a very small chance of becoming a human being.
Megan Phillips has found her way! She is one of the finest human beings I have had the pleasure of meeting and she is a very good Lawyer too. She was a welcomed angel in a heartless system.
I've know Megan for more than 4 years and consider her not only my attorney, but a good friend. From her diligence with contracts as they relate to my business to advice on my divorce, she always conducts herself with extreme professionalism and expresses a deep knowledge and understanding of the law and how it relates to the topic at hand. On top of that, Megan is a compassionate person - who I believe always has my best interest at heart. She is a tough cookie - and goes the distance to achieve the best possible outcome for her clients. I would highly recommend Megan Phillips as representation for a multitude of issues. She is definitely someone you want on your side.
