Megan Murray is the best
Megan Murray was my divorce lawyer a dozen years ago and recently my lawyer for “post judgement issues” that arose with my ex-spouse. Ms Murray is a highly skilled lawyer who not only knows the law and its nuances but knows how to deal with a recalcitrant adversary in order to reach a fair settlement. She is always professional, no matter how the badly the adversary behaves. Her arguments are always well researched, beautifully written and to the point. Megan Murray genuinely cares about me as a person. She listened to me and what I wanted. She was always clear about what my options were and what she suggested we do and why. I trusted her judgement and was very satisfied with the outcomes in both cases. I recommend Megan Murray without reservation. She is simply the best.

I am very pleased with the end results of my divorce which Megan worked effortlessly to obtain for me. We were presented with some unusual obstacles during the negotiations such as the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic and the fact that I was in the very early stages of recovery from a major life threatening trauma. Megan managed to work through all of this and obtain very comfortable results for me within a very reasonable time frame. Thanks again Megan.

Grateful to have Megan advocate for my daughter's needs.
Megan assisted me during one of my most vulnerable of times. While trying to get the school to acknowledge my daughter's autism diagnosis I was also battling her father to recognize her needs in regards to custody and our divorce. Not having contributed to the household financially while we were together and not taking up financial or emotional fatherhood responsibilities while separated. Megan used her comprehensive and extensive knowledge of the law to legally enforce standards of custody to a child on the spectrum and to help finalize the divorce agreement. Her expertise and confidence made me feel at ease especially when the opposing counsel tried to intimidate myself and family with various tactics to get us to back down on the minimum law requirements, Megan assured us and gracefully handled the situation. I was so grateful to have her advocate for my daughter's needs.

Megan is an excellent attorney who helped me navigate through a difficult long term case due to the constant litigation from my ex-wife. I always mantained joint custody of my child and although my ex-wife filed many motions over a 10 year period I never once had an adverse ruling. Megan is always on top of your case, keeps you informed and most importantly wins for you based upon the facts and how Megan represents your case. Megan is alway on the right side of the case and cares about you not only as a client but as a person also.

Top Notch Attorney
Megan was the best attorney to guide me through a most difficult situation. She is always extremely prepared and knowledgeable about my case. Megan is always listening about what is important to me and fights for those things I feel are important. I trust her instincts, her guidance and her intent. There is no one I would rather have working with me during settlement negotiations or in the courtroom.
