Very dedicated, Very satisfied!
I was represented better than I could have ever imagined. Megan Spidell and her team put my needs first and was treated as a friend rather than a number. My opinions were valued and my doubts were always reassured. My nerves were calmed after seeing her stellar performance and knowledge in the courtroom on several occasions. She went above and beyond and did everything she could to ensure a great outcome. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney. Megan always explained the worst case scenario but was always optimistic that she could work out the best case scenario, which she did for me. Thanks Megan, for the long hours and late nights put into my case! And thanks to her assistant Samantha for the countless communications and tons of help she gave freely!

Excellent Attorney - one of the few with International family law experience
Megan has been my attorney on a very challenging international child custody case where I was alienated from my daughter for several months. The conditions of the existing order made travelling for visitation very challenging. Megan went above and beyond when opposing counsel attempted legal maneuvering on holiday periods or during weekends to ensure my daughter's rights were established. Most of all, Megan stayed focused on task - she didn't get lost in the drama that ensued from this case. The legal system can be challenging but Megan articulates in a manner that simplifies the issues at hand.

Custody of Grandchild
Megan did exactly as promised and when it came to interviewing my grandson she was able to piece together many details that he would not have been comfortable doing with a stranger but her style and kindness allowed him to open up . That was key in helping this otherwise difficult case.

My child custody case was extremely complex. Megan was excellent in answering all of my concerns. She informed me of my rights and supported me throughout the process . I was nervous about everything. She was calm and reassuring. Megan was always available by phone or email, or text. Megan is passionate about her clients and their representation in the court room. She was a complete pleasure to work with. Megan is fierce in the court room and gets excellent results. I highly recommend Megan, she has integrity, she is accurate and to the point. If you want results there is only one that you should make, and that is to Megan Spidell. Megan has excellent staff support. She worked with my NY lawyer and had excellent communication skills. She has tremendous interpersonal skills with court house staff and other lawyers alike. I highly recommend Megan Spidell, without her I would not have sole custody of my girls today, I would not have peace of mind, and that is priceless. For lack of a better word Megan Spidell is just an AWESOME lawyer!

Megan was absolutely fantastic. She and her team went above and beyond to assist me, even when it went beyond what she was hired for. I really can't say enough about how professional and caring she was. Would definitely go back if I ever needed assistance in the future.

Effective and caring
Like anyone else in a domestic situation you shop around for the best attorney. Megan clicked with me from the first meeting. She was extremely nice and actually listen to what was going on, however in court she was very aggressive and fought for me as hard as she could. I really appreciated that she made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process. I would definitely recommend Megan Spidell to anyone who needs help with any domestic situation.

Trustworthy Attorney
I was a client of Ms. Spidell's and she was AMAZING to work with. When going through such personal issues it's hard to understand what your options really are. Megan laid everything out on the table and fought to get the best results for me and my children. She was always available to answer my phone calls, day, night and even on the weekends. I really trusted her counsel and knew that she was working hard for me. I would definitely recommend her to anyone with family law needs; divorce/custody.

Highly recommended
I highly recommend Megan Spidell. I hired Megan more than a year ago to handle my divorce /separation case. She is one of the few divorce attorneys that actually knows what she is doing. She handled my divorce issues with grace and helped me stay calm. She fought for my rights and won. She was extremely fair and I did not have an ounce of regret or doubt in her ability to get the job done. I highly recommend Megan Spidell to anyone in need of an attorney in her field of expertise. I am more than grateful as well as honored to have worked with such an exceptional person.

Excellent family law attorney
I found Megan's attorney profile online and I am so glad I did! Megan helped me through the most difficult time. My ex- wife was trying to take my kids, and Megan helped not only save my visitation but actually got full custody. I am so happy that Megan was my attorney and would recommend her to anyone I know.
Posted by anonymous | May 8, 2014
Prompt, caring and professional service
Ms. Spidell offered fantastic counseling during a devastating time and was a pillar of comfort throughout, while providing me with invaluable information! Ms. Spidell's expertise, coupled with general kindheartedness, was refreshing and assisted me more than I can describe! My divorce proceedings ended favorably and it was a virtually painless process for me. Highly recommend.

Fast, Accurate, Trustworthy, and On-Point.
I highly, highly recommend Megan. We started our relationship in a stressful emergency ex-parte order and "ended" our relationship when I was awarded sole physical and legal custody. She is fast and accurate and strongly on point. I have had to call upon her several times since for an affidavit and appearances to defend the order, and it still stands today. Words cannot explain how grateful I am.
