Divorce Case
I was recommended Megan when starting the divorce process, and I am very happy that I went with her. Throughout the whole process she made sure I felt informed and taken care of. She made one of the hardest things to go through, as easy as possible. I would strongly recommend her to anyone that is going through a divorce case.

Megan Corning Is .. A Aggressive, Knowledgeable, Compassionate, All Around Exceptional Lawyer
I highly recommend Megan as a attorney. We hired her for my husbands very expensive ongoing court custody battle, Megan made sure we were informed, and never gave us false promises, with her knowledge of the law, and her exceptional legal skills she ended the ongoing battle in a matter of a few months, with a very fair, and long time coming well deserved judgement in my husbands favor.. Since then I have retained Megan to help me with custody/placement issues that have been neglected for way to long on my part. Megan definitely keeps me in check, and helps me say the things better left unsaid in a more appropriate manner! I would highly recommend her, she is just a all around amazing human being, and talented lawyer.. I absolutely love her!

Megan was great. She understood the tough time I was going through, was caring when she had to be but was also up front and straight to the point. I would highly recommend to my close friends. I would use her again but I hope to not have to.

Frings Divorce feedback
I have already recommended Megan to two other friends who are facing family law issues. She is very personable, knowledgeable and makes the best of life's unpleasant realities

A safe journey
Megan helped me through the most difficult time of my life - the year long ending of a 30-year marriage. She made me feel important, which I hadn't felt in a long time. I appreciate her helping me see what was deservedly mine and not just give up "because it was easier". She always returned my calls and many, many texts and emails promptly and answered every question I had. She was even very patient with me when I forgot a very important hearing . . .

Megan is outstanding
Megan was highly recommended to me from a friend's daughter. She has not let me down. She keeps me informed and really keeps my best interest in mind. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. She is very professional and also very down to earth at the same time and very easy to talk to and a good listener.

Excellent attorney
Megan is a top notch attorney! She worked hard and accomplished everything we set out to do. The only thing I would say that could be improved on, at times she was hard to get a hold of to answer questions I had about the process or things my ex was doing that I had issue with.
