  • George E Meng

    I worked with Ms. McLeod on a difficult and complex estate probate matter that also involved a guardianship. We spent many hours together and I became well acquainted with her knowledge, integrity and work ethic. I think she is a rising star. She's very good and I have no doubt will become an expert in her chosen fields of practice.
