    WARNING:Talks BIG, takes your $, everything you say IGNORED, but you get BILLED, then you're SOLD OUT to the other side!

    She assured me she knew how to handle an abusive husband that I wanted against for divorce and seek a protection order. I had pictures and audio tapes. She expressed a very aggressive posture that she would take and there would be no problem. After giving her a nice retainer, I never was granted a protection order, my divorce wasn't filed as quickly as she indicated. She completely ignored the abuse issue. I continued to be a victim at home. When I turned over discovery to her, she failed to turn it over to the other side. Why did I go to the trouble? I never got to see their discovery either.
    At mediation on a Friday, she was ready to roll over and give up almost everything, going so far as to try to pressure me into agreeing by saying I had no other choice. I was so shocked I felt like she had become the attorney for the other side. During a lunch break, she wouldn't sit with me to try to explain what her line of reasoning was so that I might understand. She sat WITH the OPPOSING ATTORNEY and HIS CLIENT!!! After lunch, she got me and told me "it was too complicated for her to explain why" I needed to give up almost everything, so she was going to have the OPPOSING ATTORNEY "come in our area and explain why his client should get almost everything." That attorney came in and ran through what anyone with half a brain could tell was a big fat ball of yarn he was trying to spin. I told him no. Margaret asked him to leave us alone so she could convince me to accept the offer.
    Margaret put a lot of pressure on me to accept this less than fair offer that had been sprung on me that morning. She went so far as to tell me that if I didn't agree, the judge would hold it against me. She did everything but grab my arm and force me to sign an agreement. I finally told her that I'd had enough, I wasn't signing anything that day. She said I had to, I didn't have any choice, that's the way mediation works. I got up to leave. She came after me saying that "they" we're only giving me until Monday to make up my mind. I told her I didn't need it, my mind was made up.
    The next week I talked to a couple of other lawyers and explained what had happened. I ended up firing Margaret and hiring someone else. I lost a lot of money because of Margaret's fees, but MORE than made up for it with my new attorney.
    The bottom line for me is, you can look up a lawyer in a phone book, but until you know people who have actually dealt with them, you may very well being throwing your money down the drain!

    DO NOT USE THIS ATTORNEY

    Like the other reviews..She takes your money and then she does nothing for you. Does not return phone calls ect...I had never gone through a divorce and she gave me no guidance. Sad but she doesnt care about her clients anymore. It took 5 years for my divorce to be done and he and I were in agreements.His attorney was awful too.

    Warning Will Rogers!

    $10,000.00 for Margaret to "get educated" in Judge Trap's courtroom. Told 13 yr old nephew he had rights, don't worry, CPS is wrong. Nephew was returned back to abusive home. No contact allowed. RUN away from this amicus. You will be sorry if you use this so called attorney. She will NOT fight for you.

    Very disappointing

    I totally agree with the other review. She talks like she is going to be an agressive lawyer and then disappears, and leaves her assistant to do the work. I did everyhting they asked in a timely matter, I'm not sure why because it was never forwarded to opposing council in a timely manner. She never gave me advice when I was being threatened by my ex - I really felt that I had to figure things out on my own.
    I had my suspicions about her within a couple of months, but the way some events unfolded, I persevered with her services.
    She was 45 minutes late to mediation. Rarely responded to questions/emails. I am two months from a finalized settlement and still I have no money. She claims that she has no control over getting me my assets even though my divorce was granted a month ago.
    If you expect an attorney to be professional, timely and have your back through divorce proceedings, then she is not the lawyer to hire.

    crappy lawyer

    she has very little contact with you
    she tells you you have nothing to worry about
    and when you get to the court room she lets you down
    she doesn't win you a dam thing and she responds that is just the way it it
    when you do everything from day 1 just as she has requested and then she wants to send you a bill for everything when she basically did nothing for you at all
    her legal assistant does all she can for you but the lawyer herself which is what you are playing out the butt for does nothing at all she leads you along all the way and then it court she basically sits says and does nothing lets the other party walk away with everything
