Outstanding Person!!
Megan and her team are all about what is best for the children! That is all anyone can ask for. My husband and I met Megan in Oct 2014 with a very hard case and we felt anxious all the time. Megan kept us well informed, calm and assured us that everything will be done legally, fairly and most importantly, keeping the best interest of the children at heart. She will definitely fight for what is Right and Just and will not allow any unfare treatment of anyone! Unfortunately, we are back at having to fight some more BUT with Megan in our corner, we have no worries that all will turn out well. She is a very hard working and dedicaded person and she will make you feel as if she is fighting for you as if you were a part of her family. We HIGHLY reccommend her to anyone who needs a caring but hard charging lawyer who is willing to fight for you tooth and nail! Thank you Megan and Ila for all you have done for our family and continue to do for us. May you receive many many blessing for your work in the lives of others. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!

Truly an Angel
Personable, trustworthy, hard working are my "3 words to describe". Since our first meeting with Megan she has honestly changed our lives. I originally came to her for help with one issue which then turned into many more, still commited and determined, she has helped with every aspect and every detail. Love her!!!!
