When you have to hire a lawyer it's usually not under the best circumstances and there's a lot of stress and emotions involved. The first time I spoke with Megan on the phone I knew she was the perfect lawyer to represent me. She's a good listener and excellent at sorting out the facts from the emotions.
When we started litigation, the other party tried to throw all kinds of irrelevant information into the case, and Megan was amazing at keeping my case on track and and to the point.
There's SO much that goes on in the legal process and it can be very confusing, but Megan was good at explaining next steps and timelines. A lot of our work together was waiting for the paperwork between the lawyers, courts, and judicial system to run its course, so be patient, but know Megan is on top of it all and working hard to get you the results you want.

I was fairly new to living in Dane County and in desperate need of advice from a divorce attorney. I contacted Megan Phillips after reading reviews on AVVO. I sent Megan a message over the weekend via AVVO and she responded back to me immediately that same day. We went back and forth over the next several days with questions and advice from her I was blown away at the very beginning by her responsiveness, listening skills, expert knowledge regarding complicated issues in my case and the feeling that she gave me that she was there for me. I always felt confident that she was in my corner. My ex husband tried to get maintenance from me....He did not get it and everything else was resolved in the best way possible for me. Very happy with the outcome. I highly recommend Attorney Megan Phillips.....I was so fortunate to have found her.

I decided to meet for a consultation with Megan Phillips for my divorce after reading all of the reviews on this website. I have to admit, I was somewhat skeptical about the number of great reviews she had compared to other attorneys on the website, but after I met with her, I realized why she had so many excellent reviews. She really took the time to listen to me and understand my situation and what I wanted. Every time I contacted her by email, she got back to me very quickly. She was great at explaining the answers to all of my questions in a way that was very easy for me to understand. Whenever I had to make a decision about how to proceed, she explained all of my options and advised me on what she thought would be the best course of action so I could make an informed decision. She helped make a difficult process as easy and painless as possible for me. I would highly recommend hiring Megan Phillips for a divorce.

Megan Phillips represented my daughter during her divorce. Megan was extremely patient and understanding during this time with my daughter. She made sure my daughter understood each step, what was expected from her and what was going to happen during the entire process. She made sure my daughter and granddaughter were protected by the law, now and in the future. The way she handled my now ex son-in-law made it very clear we had made the right choice.
I would recommend (and have recommended) Megan to anyone that needs an attorney. She is very knowledgeable, patient, understanding and puts her client’s needs above all.

Attorney Megan Phillips is that perfect mixture of intelligence, brains and common sense that you could only hope to encounter in the trying situations that divorce brings with it. She is calming at the most tense and trying of times, and makes careful and fiscally sensitive plans so that schedules and budgets are met. Where other attorneys would have balked at the fundamental elements of my case, involving complex jurisdictional and multi-state law, Megan welcomed the complexity when it was necessary and otherwise streamlined the process to include me rather than overwhelm me with decisions as they presented themselves. I highly recommend Megan to those who want to get it done right the first time, and walk out of the process with their head held high.

Megan represented me in what turned out to be an acrimonious divorce settlement. She very was thoughtful, informative and thorough in describing the various stages of the process. From the drafting of the temporary stipulated order to the settlement mediation to the final marital settlement agreement and ensuing QDRO, Megan was always there with personal support and professional service. She's also been very helpful with follow-up issues/questions more than a year after finalization of the divorce. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an ethical, hard-working divorce attorney!

As rookie entrepreneurs it was vital to find legal help to navigate us through the steps of opening a new business. Our local Chamber of Commerce recommended we contact Megan, and we are so incredibly thankful that we did. She understands small business ownership and it was clear from our very first meeting that she truly cared about us. Megan commended us that we had done much homework and had a good plan in place, and pointed out the things we were missing from our plan. When it came time for lease negotiations on a site that had been closed for ten years and in need of much work, Megan shined her brightest for us. She prepared us for how those negotiations were bound to go, and let us know what parts she would take over for during the discussions with the owners to guarantee that we were getting a fair deal. She even brought us hot cocoa after standing in the freezing cold for an hour after the face-to-face negotiations at the site!
Not only did Megan guide us through tough lease negotiations, trademark registrations, among other legal necessities, she also is one of our biggest supporters. Megan made sure to be there for our grand opening. She frequently visits us at our shop, gives us awesome marketing advice, and tells everyone she knows to visit us. Looking back we realize there are those select few that we can point to in credit to our success, and Megan is right there at the top of that list.
We hired Megan as our business lawyer, and in return we gained a trusted friend.

Attorney Phillips was a wonderful attorney to work with. She listened, was compassionate, supportive, honest and patient while at the same time professional, timely and efficient. She clearly articulated the law and all options available to me as the client. Moreover, she was very knowledgeable about the law governing my case and had the added experience to be able to inform me of both what were practical approaches and likely outcomes. She worked hard on my behalf and alongside me. Attorney Phillips has all the attributes of a great attorney -- both a highly effective and compassionate family law lawyer.

Megan Phillips has been my lawyer from the beginning of my divorce. I came in very strong minded and Megan was able to fight for the things that I felt were important to me. She was trustworthy and always followed-up with me on any questions that I had. She was also able to tell me realistically what to expect and she was always reassuring when a problem came up. She knows the law and was always able to explain the situation to me in layman's terms so that I would understand. I would very much recommend her; in fact, I already have! If you have the unfortunate opportunity of going through a divorce, you want Megan Phillips on your side! :) I think it was her words when she said at the end of my divorce, "we won the divorce lottery!" It was an accurate assessment!!!
