Highly Recommend
Megan was very thorough and reassuring throughout my extended divorce process. She advocated for me and my kids, with everything I needed, as well as for things I didn’t know I needed. She was patient, understanding, and supportive with me wanting to take the the easiest route possible; to eventually having to go the route of going to court. I highly recommend Megan for those that need help with simple, straight forward divorces, to divorces that unfortunately involve contention.

Best of the best attorney in Megan Wallin
I honestly cannot imagine anyone else handling my divorce. Megan is as professional as they come, incredibly knowledgeable, explained everything to me as many times as I needed it explained, fought for myself and my boys but also held back when I asked. She is a force in the legal world; but is also a kind and loving human being and that was important to me and my children during this huge life event. I would recommend her to absolutely anyone looking for a divorce or family law attorney.

I couldn't have picked a better lawyer.
I hired Megan Wallin to assist me with a divorce from my wife; we are a same sex couple and had a 1 year old child together. Although my name is on his birth certificate I didn’t have any legal rights to my son (since I didn’t carry) and Megan went above and beyond to make sure I didn’t lose him. My divorce wasn't pretty but when things got hard, Megan just worked harder. There was nothing I worried about that scared her. She showed absolutely no fear as my ex-wife really went out of her way to paint me like I was a bad parent and a bad partner; but she believed every word I said. She was invested in my case from our first meeting. I am so glad I hired a lawyer that was doing her job, but didn’t make me feel like I was just another client. She cared about my case. To say she went "above and beyond" for me is an understatement. Hiring her was the best decision I could have made, for both myself and my son.

She made it easy!!
Having a smooth and civilized divorce was my mine and my ex-husbands goal. We have two kids so we didn’t know how complicated things would get. We both used her and she helped us easily reach agreements that made us both happy and did what was best for the children. Megan made the hassle part of a divorce so stress free. She took the time to answer any and all questions we had. She took notes of what we wanted and had the papers written up promptly leaving us to simply sign. I highly recommend her!

!!! Highly Recommended !!!
I hired Megan for modifications to child support and parenting plan, and I couldn’t be happier to have made that decision. She navigated the waters of dealing with my uncooperative, sometimes downright rude ex-spouse in an impressive manner, and got things done for me. Out of all attorneys I have dealt with (and there have been many), Megan was, by far, the most responsive, most professional, and most transparent. My emails were answered within 24 hours, and she was always willing to take a phone call if I had any questions.

Absolutely AMAZING Attorney!
For several years I’ve worked with several other attorneys on multiple court cases, and have never been happy with the final outcome. I knew going into my last case that I wanted to hire an attorney who was very knowledgeable and skilled, who would fight for us, and get the case done ASAP! Immediately during my initial consultation I knew Megan Wallin was absolutely THE attorney to handle this case so I retained her immediately the next morning! I felt very confident with her knowledge in my very complex case. She did a phenomenal job explaining things to me, advising me as we went along with all aspects of my case. She responded very quickly to any questions I had, and I really loved her "professional yet still personable" attitude. I most definitely highly recommend Megan to anyone, especially if family law is involved. I know she 100% always kept our best interests at heart, and did an excellent job keeping my mind at ease! You definitely won't be disappointed with Megan by your side :)

Breath of Fresh Air
In my career I’ve worked with a number of attorneys and became use to the ‘same old same old’. When I first meet Megan I was struck with her energy and felt very comfortable with her knowledge in dealing with my case. She didn’t disappoint me, she was excellent in explaining things to me and advising me of the pros and cons when it came to decision making. Simply put, I hired the best attorney to deal with my case. I highly recommend Megan to anyone, she connects with you and you truly feel she has your best interests at heart.

Step-Parent Adoption and Termination of Rights
I hired Megan after talking with several Attorney’s. Megan was the only attorney that I talked to that believed this Step-Parent adoption and termination of rights could happen. She sat down with my Husband and me several times and explained in detail what would, could and should happen. She responded to calls and emails in a timely manner. She is very informative, and self-confident! I believe if this case would have turned into the fight that I expected, she would have stood her ground. I do see a fighter in her, she will go above and beyond, is very honest & sticks with the facts! We will recommend Megan, and use her again if the need arises. She most certainly helped complete my Family!

Excellent Attorney
Megan provided fantastic representation and council. She listens well and provides valuable feedback and applicable options. I believe she has a good heart but also the ability to fight and stand ground when needed. I not only recommend her, i would hire again if the need ever arose. Case: Child visitation

Divorce modification/mediation
Megan was extremely professional, prepared and knowledgeable with my case. She continually followed up with the opposing lawyer when they did not respond in a timely manner. She made sure I understood every step of the mediation process and with her guidance my ex-husband and I were able to reach a divorce modification agreement thus avoiding the need to go to court.

Great choice for an attorney!
Megan helped my husband and I through the adoption process of our daughter. Megan never hesitated to answer our questions throughout the process. 7 months after our case was finished, I still had not received the birth certificates from the adoption and could not reach the appropriate people to help. After an email to Megan, she took the time to take care of my issue and got the documents for me. She didn't have to do that, as it was my responsibility, but the small action on her part showed how she truly cares for her clients. We recommend Megan to everyone.

Skilled
After calling a few places, I came across Megan, she explained things over the phone, and let me come in to talk more. I decided to go with her, she wasn't just an attorney handling my case but the support I needed in that time, always called me back when I had a question and kept me up to date with where we were in my case. I'd recommend her to any one looking for more then just someone to file the papers but to really have your back. She is amazing!!!

Professional Legal Advice
Attorney Megan Wallin was diligent in getting in touch with me even though I was only a potential client. She took the time to listen to my concerns, explain my options, and offer honest, free legal advice. I almost felt compelled to offer a small payment in exchange for the priceless piece of mind she provided me. I would highly recommend the law firm she is employed with to anyone seeking a lawyer that practices family law.

Professional, and honestly caring
This is my second time working with a lawyer. My first time was not a good experience so I was nervous when it came time to have to find one again. I was updating visitation, child support, etc. Megan was very professional, explained everything to where I understood and offered up great advise to help me get through all this. She made the entire process easier to deal with. I was comfortable talking with her about things and even asking her advice on a few. If you are looking for someone who is honest and dependable, think of no one else. If I ever do need a lawyer again, I will definitely be using her again.

A highly recommended attorney
I met with Megan on the suggestion of a coworker that used her. And I'm so happy I did. I hired her to represent me on my divorce and could not have asked for a better attorney. She was so patient with my questions, and believe me I asked A LOT. Every phone call or email was answered if not that same day, then always within 24 hours. She seems to genuinely care about her clients and making it as easy a process as possible. You definitely can't go wrong using her services! I will definitely use her again ifor the need arises.
