Megan protected me and my children throughout an incredibly difficult domestic assault situation and subsequent divorce. She knows the legal system on both the civil and criminal side, and is unafraid to take on cases involving dv. Her recommendations were spot on, and she listened to my concerns and input throughout the entire process without judgment. I highly recommend her for anyone needing a strong, intelligent, and caring attorney.

Extremely professional and knowledgeable
I can’t say enough wonderful things about Megan! She has been my attorney for 8 years and has handled everything (from my divorce to visitation issues and child support collection) quickly and to my satisfaction. She is professional, straight-forward and knowledgeable; she definitely knows her stuff and even helped me stay level-headed (and drama-free) during a terrible time. She won’t tell you something just because it’s what you want to hear - she is straight-forward and I whole-heartedly appreciate her honesty with me from day one! She’s not someone I’d want to go up against in the courtroom!

The best in Chattanooga
After meeting with a few other lawyer's regarding a nasty 2 1/2 year custody situation with my daughter, I finally met with Megan and right off I knew that she was exactly what I was looking for! She's beyond amazing and will go the extra mile to ensure she represents you in the most defined manner ( in my experience I literally think of her as family, yes I love her that much after 2 1/2 years, she's my go-to on everything) and she makes any court situation so much easier, I'd never walk in a court room without her. I promise that you won't be disappointed!

Kind, unruffled, knows her stuff
Megan represented me in my Divorce, which was not a great time for me. She was considerate, explaining several times things I couldn't quite take in. She is easy to be with, not patronizing, and, most importantly, got the results I wanted. She really knows family law, and is respected among her peers. I will use her services in the future! But not, I hope, for divorce.

The reality of dealing with a legal matter stressed me beyond my limit. Megan England was able to alleviate much of that stress with an encouraging and helpful hand. My case carried severe penalties but Ms. England worked aggressively to eliminate them. I cannot say enough how thankful I am for her counsel. She is an excellent attorney and I highly recommend her services.

Relationship: Other
"I endorse this lawyer's work. Although we have not worked on a case together, I have had two occasions to meet Ms. Demastus at national trial attorney conventions and at those times we have discussed cases in some depth. She impressed me as being very well trained and her analysis of case strategy and complex legal concepts showed me that she had exceptional legal skills and excellent training in the trenches with real cases. She also showed me that she is ethical and dedicated to representing her clients in an conscientious and caring way. I am very impressed with Ms. Demastus. I would have no reservation in referring a case to her if the occasion arose."
