She always seems to know exactly what direction your case should go on and takes all routes to get to the outcome you desire. Very knowledgeable and understanding and worked to get the best outcome for my child and our family. She has done so much for me and my child and I can never thank her enough for all the hard work and hours she has given us.

I've worked with more attorneys than I like to think about, but Margaret is the first one who seems to care about my outcome. She's quick to respond to any questions I have, and she's full of ideas about how to get me closer to what I want. If you're tired of attorneys who seem to keep billing without getting anything accomplished (or who go silent for weeks at a time), Margaret and her team at Held Law Firm are a breath of fresh air.

The day you got married, you never thought you'd need a divorce lawyer. But now you do. You want someone who's competent, professional, knows the law, has her feet on the ground, and a good head on her shoulders. You want someone who will represent your interests fairly, and who will respect your need to keep costs down. You want someone who will respond to your emails!
You want Margaret Held. You want Margaret Held and her super-competent, super-professional, super-effective team. I hired Margaret and her team to represent me in what unfortunately turned out to be a "high conflict" divorce. I can't say it was fun. But I can say, I would hire Margaret again in a heartbeat. In a New York minute. You get the idea.
When I talk to close friends, friends I love, and they ask me for advice, I refer them to Margaret, without hesitation, and without qualification. She's that good.

Ms. Held and her staff helped me through my divorce and were amazingly supportive during this time when I was so stressed I could barely function. They were all professional and compassionate. I highly recommend Ms. Held; she is the best!

My wife and I hired the Held law firm for a highly contested child custody case. The Held law firm is staffed with only the best and they will fight for you in court. They cleaned up a mess made by our previous attorney, and got our case moving forward. Margaret has the experience and skills to get you the best results possible.
Margaret has a way of taking charge of situations and not letting things just happen. She is a real fighter in the court room. My wife’s ex tried to block documents, lower child support, and delay the trial. We got the documents, child support got raised, the trial date didn’t change and Margaret actually got them to settle before the trial. Hire them, you won’t be disappointed.

We used Held Law Firm to handle a custody trial for us. They were amazing. We had tried others firms in the past but they were above and beyond any experience we had come across. The entire office works together as a team and they know the law. Margaret Held has employed only the best in her office so she won't even consider taking your case if she feels she cannot win it.
The are more like family to me now than anything else. I would highly recommend them and if they cannot win your case, it can't be won.

There isn't a better group in Knoxville. Very efficient and so easy to work with. I can't say enough about how wonderful Held Law Firm truly is. They went above and beyond for my Mother during her (senseless and ugly) divorce. I wouldn't go anywhere else for something like this. Very highly recommended!

Margaret Held is by far the best attorney in the Knoxville area!
I had previously been represented by two attorneys, which resulted in over two years of delayed court hearings, numerous unsuccessful meditations, and costly legal fees. I felt hopeless and was doubtful if there would ever be justice in my case. Hiring Margaret Held was the best decision I had ever made, and I only wish I had hired her in the beginning. She fought for me when no one else would. I can honestly say it does matter the attorney you have. Throughout the case, she provided solid legal counsel, listened, supported and protected me. She is strong, aggressive, hardworking, honest and ethical. Margaret Held always quickly answered my emails, phone calls and genuinely cared about my case. She also made a conscious effort to keep the legal fees low and went above and beyond my expectations for looking out for the best interest of myself and my children. I am extremely grateful for the Held Law firm for giving me "my life back." It is the only Law Firm I will continue to recommend to my friends and family.

Margaret has been wonderful throughout my divorce proceedings, which have almost stretched out to be two, yes, two years now! My ex's attorney thought the rules did not apply to him and followed none of them, making Margaret's job almost intolerable. He eventually malpracticed and my ex had to fire him and get another attorney. Despite all of the aggravation, Margaret (and Luke) have been on top of the situation every step of the way. In addition, she has been very reassuring along the way. I could not be happier with her performance on my behalf. Margaret's heart and soul is in her work. She is one of the few attorneys who are still in it with an inherent sense of right and wrong and a conviction that justice should always be done.

Just stop looking, you have found the lawyer/team you need right here! Knowledgeable, trustworthy, timely, passionate, hard working ... I could go on and on... and on. They find ways that will work better for you in the long run and get the job done. They keep in touch, I never have to "sit and worry". Ms. Held is a firecracker and Luke is just as good. The new female team member they added is wonderful as well. She is worth the money and time most definitely. Look Held Law Firm up online, you'll see what I mean. :) She has truly done mircales and wonders for me so far!
