    • I do not recommend Margaret Wilson.
    • Margaret handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I do not recommend this lawyer. I believe she did not realistically inform me of my options in my divorce case. I ended up losing almost all of my requests. I realize now, that I would have been better off settling things with my ex. Within 3 months, I was billed four times what I expected. In the end, I lost what mattered most to me--time with my chid. I believe a good lawyer should work to help a family solve problems long term, rather than just bill hours for her own benefit and create rifts between parents. I regret that I wasted a lot of money with a bad attorney. I recommend finding a lawyer with more years of family law experience and more accountability to a firm or partnership for their billing and conduct.

    • I recommend Margaret Wilson.
    • I hired Margaret 1-3 years ago.
    • Margaret handled my Child Custody matter.

    I was involved in a bitter and complex child custody battle against one of the most renowned and highest paid law firms. My prior attorneys lost at every hearing, even though they were also well known. However, a friend referred me to Ms. Wilson and everything changed. When Ms. Wilson took on my case not only did she win for me but justice finally prevailed as a result of Ms. Wilson's outstanding skills and guidance. It is clear the Ms. Wilson is savvy in legal strategy, discovery, and trial. I highly recommend Ms. Wilson as she is clearly one of the top and most skilled family law attorney in California.

    • I recommend Margaret Wilson.
    • I hired Margaret 1-3 years ago.
    • Margaret handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    Mrs. Wilson is smart, direct, and trustworthy. I felt like all the other attorney's I consulted were just trying to tell me what I wanted to hear and I paid the price for it. Mrs. Wilson let me know that she couldn't fix what happened in the past but that we could improve things going forward and she did. I wasted a lot of money on attorney's before I was blessed enough to be referred to Mrs. Wilson by a friend. I have and will refer friends and family to her in the future.

    • I recommend Margaret Wilson.
    • I hired Margaret more than 3 years ago.
    • Margaret handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    Margaret is an excellent attorney, I have never met an attorney like her with such ethics and intergrity. She truly will do whatever it takes to do an excellent job for her clients. Her client's are first to her and she fights for what's right by going above and beyond what most attorney's would even think of doing. I highly recommend her and have never met an attorney as competent, honest and hard working as she has been for me and my family. Anyone who employs her services will sincerely be very happy with her.
