Highly Recommend
Meredith was a delight to work with during my mediation. Very professional and personable. Meredith took the time to make sure I understood everything clearly.

Excellent legal services in the field of family law
Meredith provided limited assistance representation for our guardianship case. She reviewed our documents thoroughly before providing thoughtful and knowledgeable guidance. We had spoken to several attorneys before deciding on Meredith's expertise. We found that her extensive understanding of the family court system helped us to be prepared for an uncertain outcome for our grandchildren. We have recommended Meredith since we used her services. We would also use Meredith again if need be.

Great family lawyer
Attorney Makin is a wonderful family/divorce attorney. She always kept me informed, was easy too talk with and was always available when I called. I always felt comfortable and informed about my case. I would recommend her to any of my family or friends looking for a family attorney.

My 'Go To' Attorney
Meredith Makin is someone you want in your corner. Meredith has been my attorney for seven years, starting when she was a young associate. From the beginning, she has performed like a seasoned veteran, which she is now. She is thorough, proactive, and humanistic. I absolutely trust her judgment with respect to sensitive and weighty decisions. I will call no one else the next time I need help.
