Very Satisfied
I hired Attorney Megan Raymond for a number of business related start-up activities which needed to be completed ASAP in order for a significant business transaction to occur in a timely manner. She set up the LLC entity, Articles of Organization, Master Operating Agreement and obtained State and Federal Tax ID numbers, all in an expedited manner. This was done very competently, accurately and professionally under the very tight time schedule. She continues to handle the legal activities for the LLC. I wholeheartedly endorse Ms. Raymond as a hard working and professional attorney who also has solid communication abilities. Completely satisfied.

Megan is a GREAT attorney! I used her for my custody/divorce case and I had a very difficult case! It took just about 3 years but in the end I am now a single father and I would not trade it for the world! I had 1 other attorney i used before her and my case was all messed up Megan got everything straighten up and again my case was very very difficult if it was not for her there would not be a chance I would have custody of my son!! I would recommend her to anyone who needs a lawyer!!

Family Attorney | Mar 21
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Megan and I worked together on a child custody dispute which ended up going to trial. I've worked with Megan in the past with great satisfaction, but this time I was even more impressed with her. Megan was extremely professional, and her work ethic and thoroughness proved crucial in securing our victory in the case. Megan was tireless in her preparation for trial, and it was reflected in the impeccable presentation she put forth. Megan's engagement with the client and witness prep allowed us to pull out the facts which best supported our position. Megan's prior trial experience was invaluable in navigating this case, and allowed us to gain praise from the judge. Megan's well thought out Closing was what, in my opinion, allowed us to win over the judge and drove home the salient facts we presented throughout the trial. Megan's knowledge of the law, work ethic, and interpersonal skills made her a joy to work with. I look forward to working with Megan in the future."
