Margaret is an absolutely great family lawyer. She helped me with a personal case where other attorneys told me I had virtually no chance of winning. Margaret was very upfront that I had a difficult case, but she welcomed the challenge. Not only did she do a great job researching the case and the opposition, she was able to expose several outright lies by the other side. She stayed on top of things, and eventually wore down the other side where they finally caved in, and my outcome was better than expected! I won thanks to the hard work of Held Law firm!

The whole law firm was very helpful during my "crisis". I was an emotional wreck, but Margaret always knew what to say to help me put things in perspective. She basically "Held" my hand through the whole process of getting my child back. If it wasn't for her help, I don't think I could have made it.

This attorney is a very capable and intelligent person, and I felt quite confident with her on my side. I won my case, which I notice surprised the opposing party. Her strengths include being a good strategist and quick thinker. I was impressed with the way she dominated the other attorney, and was entirely responsive to my requests and questions. Recommended!

Ms. Held is very knowledgeable about all aspects of the law and works hard to get positive results for her clients. She is a very innovative thinker when it comes to resolving issues. I would readily endorse Ms. Held.
