  • Joshua M Mulligan

    I endorse this lawyer. Megan Beaman fights hard for her clients, and she approaches her cases with real heart. You can see through Megan's background and her activities with non-profits that she isn't just in this for the money. She's on the side of the "little guy" and she's fighting unethical or immoral employers to make her community a better place.
