It has been a positive experience working with Mrs. Oliver. She was attentive, understanding, and helpful in every step...throughout a very difficult time of our divorce process.

I hired Meg Oliver to represent me in my divorce. Meg is very professional. She seeks compromise in the hope of finding resolution in this difficult life experience.

Margaret Oliver was selected by the Court as the Best Interest Attorney for my teenage son. She came with a lot of experience and knowledge of her role and was very specific on how to deal with her and my son. She was very thorough with gathering information from references, school, doctors, and his counselor. She was very good with communicating with my son and explaining the situation. She was very fair in her assessment in my opinion and able to look rationally at the facts which was needed in our case. I would definitely recommend her to others.

Meg represented me through the separation and divorce. She was always responsive during the entire process and was a true advocate and represented my best interest. I'm happy with the end result and although divorce is never easy, I am glad that I had Meg on my team and would definitely recommend her.

I found Meg through an internet search and reviews that had been written about her by both her clients and professional colleagues. I booked an appointment for an initial consultation. She was very attentive, emphathic and allowed me to vent my pent up anger. I had just discovered my husband was having an affair with a lady I trusted, opened up my home to and had mentored for 7 years. Right from the beginning, she showed me the different options. I felt her genuiness that this is an attorney who is not out to make money out of you. But her main concern is to reach a resolution together.
She handled my case with such excellence and made me feel as if I am her only client. She was always available, answered phone calls and emails promptly. At a point I felt like she is the big sister that I never had. She even offered me advice as to how to keep my sanity throughout the divorce proceedings. Through her help I found a PI who will produce the evidence that I need to proof adultery in court. I have been married for 30 years and my husband have had several affairs but have been very elusive and you could not pin him to anything. But guess what with Meg as my attorney, we finally did it.
She put together a Separation Agreement that gave me and our children every single thing that I wanted from the divorce. I was not going to loose both ways. The morning of our court hearing, she turned to me and asked "Are you OK" I answered "Yes" and then she said "Then I will stop worrying about you, you know its a mixed feeling" I felt like I have family supporting me at one of the most difficult period, in my life. My three children felt the same way.
Friend, if you are looking for an attorney who will make your divorce fun and not a pain, I highly recommend Attorney Oliver-excellent, articulate, knowledgeable, empathic and an advocate for your course whiles ensuring fairness for all parties involved.

Meg was great at handling everything regarding our visitation matter. She listened to my concerns with empathy and helped to make sense of what I was asking for. She was also able to help me understand what the realistic outcomes may be, and helped navigate me through the process of collaboration and compromise with the other party. Meg was always readily available, not only to answer questions, but for further clarification throughout the process to ensure that my voice was heard. In short, she helped to put my mind at ease, through what could have been a difficult and trying process. I came to Meg through a recommendation from a friend on that basis that resolution, regarding any matter, was her primary focus. I can without a doubt say that Meg stayed true to her word, and did so with efficacy, compassion, and in a timely manner. Thank you!

Mrs. Oliver was recommended to me by a friend who went through a divorce. She was described as the "best divorce and family attorney, she nice but will FIGHT for you".
The day I went for my consultation I was afraid, nervous, tearful and anxious. From the moment I met Meg, through the entire process, she was compassionate, thoughtful, honest, fair, and made me feel like my kids and I were her only clients.
Meg was also fair with respect to pricing for her services. She discussed the most economical way to proceed with my case and was honest about potential future cost associated with various options.
She made a very difficult divorce into one that was successfully and amicably setteled out of court with my kids and I receiving everything we deserved. What I love most is her ability to work together with the opponent fairly and with the most pleasant demeanor, but she knows how to be "aggressive" when warrented, but all with respect. She has a superior knowledge of the law and is very savvy and creative in designing parenting plans, child support structures, and property divisions that meet your needs and are legally sound.
I pray that I never have to experience divorce again, but if you find yourself in this unfortunate situation, Meg will empower you, walk you through this process, and make you feel confident that life goes on! Because of her I can now smile again.
Thank you Meg!

Brief description of your legal issue:
I highly recommend Meg Oliver to anyone who is facing divorce and wants someone who can listen and respond with reason and caring. Her advice is second to none, and yet she is responsive to your requests while outlining possible outcomes. She was more than helpful in designing a separation agreement for me and my spouse that the court accepted as terms for our final divorce agreement. She is fair and certainly an advocate for your rights. In my opinion, Meg is the right choice to guide you through the process, even an amicable one. With deep appreciation.

I found Meg by searching for an attorney on Avvo to help me handle my separation, divorce and child custody issues. I am so glad I chose her for an attorney. She made the whole process easy, fast and painless.
Initially when I first met with her for a consultation I was emotional, had so many thoughts and worries, and I came at her with a lot of information and many questions. I was hoping that she would promise me that she would get me everything I wanted. Instead, she gave me a reality check which I am now thankful for. She explained what was realistically possible, and what would be challenging. She gave me various options on how we could approach the issues in my divorce, and I’m glad that she was honest with me and was not just after the business. She wanted to make sure I did what brought me peace of mind. Meg asks questions like, ‘What do you really want to achieve?’, and ‘What’s most important to you?’ and ‘What do you want to get out of this divorce?’ So she helped me refocus my efforts and take a less painful path which I believe ended up being the best thing for me and my family. Meg helped me think rationally and logically, always explaining that I should be reasonable in my demands, considering what is realistic and fair to me, my ex, and my kids.
If I had gone to a different attorney, my divorce may have dragged on for a long time, costing me thousands of dollars in attorney fees and years of pain and frustration culminating in a bad divorce. Instead, the separation agreement and divorce was all completed in 1 year, and the divorce was relatively painless.
For everyone reading this, you should remember that after you sign a contract, just like with other attorneys, every minute you take out of Meg’s day will be billed, including emails, calls etc. That said, you definitely get your money’s worth with her. She achieves results quickly and does not drag things on, which at the end probably saves you money. She is professional, friendly, honest, always responsive, reliable, efficient, and possesses a wealth of information.
Going to court with Meg was a good experience as well. Aside from the fact that she was so well prepared, I could see that she was respected by her peers and everybody working there knew her. It was a good feeling walking into court with a superstar!
I will definitely go back to Meg for all my legal needs, and will definitely recommend her.
