Knowledgeable
Meredith was thorough, understanding of my case, and reliable. She should contact me when information changed about the case I.e. ( time/date changed of case anything essential to the case). She personally returned my calls. I was very satisfied with how she handled the case and very satisfied on how she professionally conducted herself.

Best Attorney Experience Ever!!!
Ms. Markham came as a recommendation from a past client of hers. I knew the direction and even the end result i wanted to achieve in a child custody case, I was unsure how to get there. Ms. Markham took the time to meet with me and hear the details of my case and gave me clear direction. She took control of the case and we filed on May 6 and everything was complete and case closed on June 10,2016. I personally will using her in the future....as well as recommending her to family and friends for their legal needs

Easy to contact, highly knowledgeable
Meredith has handled our case as if it were her own. She has helped guide us through the proper steps to take to be in the best interest of my children along with fighting eagerly for our rights we deserve to get back. Even though this truly has been the worst thing a mother can experience, Meredith gave me comfort throughout the process by explaining what we should expect before, during and after our hearings so we weren't surprised with the outcome.

Knowledgeable, Communicates, & Gets Results
Mrs. Markham represented me in a child custody modification that involved both family court and domestic relations court. Mrs. Markham was very personable and informative during the emotional and potentially confusing process of encountering two distinctly different court systems. She was easy to communicate with; I felt aware of what was being accomplished and where we were throughout the entire process. I am grateful to have met Mrs. Markham. I would not hesitate to recommend Mrs. Markham to any of my friends or family that are unfortunate enough to find themselves in a custody dispute. The result of Mrs. Markham’s work in my life, my child is safely and solely in my custody and remains safe during supervised visits with the other parent. I couldn’t be more thankful for the outcome!

I COULDNT BE MORE SATISFIED WITH CHOOSING HER TO REPERSENT ME
I hired Ms.Markham for a child custody case. She went above and beyond my expectations. She was absolutely amazing, down to earth, and I'd highly recommend her services to anyone. She definitely impressed me!! She genuinely cares and will do what it takes to bring justice to her clients. I wouldn't hesitate in hiring her, I can't say it enough how amazing she was!

Single Dad, sole custody !
Ms. Markham told me what she could and would do for my daughter and I, and then she did exactly that! I am a single dad who now has sole custody of my 13 year old daughter.A lot of lawyers tell you what you want to hear. And then you hire them and hear "well" , "but", and "almost". After I hired Ms. Markham, I heard "done", "the judge signed it" , and "worry about your daughter, I've got this". She was genuinely invested in my case and truly cared about what she does. I have, and will continue to recommend her to anyone involved in a custody case.
