Love Her!!
I hired her for a divorce & custody case. They (her or someone on her team) were very quick to respond to all my emails & guided me the whole way through. She knows what she's talking about & is straight forward. Would recommend her 100 times over!!!

The best I hope I never need again, BUT the FIRST if I ever do.
Megan and her staff always copied me in on communications and was punctual on all appointments for scheduled consults. At completion I can say without a doubt that I am happier and more financially stable than ANY of my friends/co-workers that have gone through a divorce. My hat is off and I HIGHLY recommend Megan Wooster.

Megan is a BOSS LADY - the absolute best!
Megan recently saw me through an ex parte filing for emergency custody and a court hearing for an order of protection against my child's father. She took my case on short notice, got the ex parte in place within days of retaining her, in time before the next scheduled visitation, and responded quickly when I became aware my child and I were in grave danger and I needed to file for an order of protection. She commanded the courtroom during our hearing for the order of protection, and her line of questioning flustered both my ex and his attorney. Finally, after years, my child's ad litem and the judge saw him for who he really was, and we were granted the maximum protection permissible under the law. I have appreciated how professional and knowledgeable Megan is. I have appreciated how she has taken time to thoroughly answer my questions. I appreciated that she truly made me feel like MY case was HER case. Her assistant is meticulous, and between the two of them, they acknowledged and/or responded to every single text, e-mail, and phone call during the time I've worked with them so far. I often got responses after hours, even when they didn't have to make themselves available. I have never gotten so much value for money spent on legal fees. Megan is not the cheapest lawyer in town, but she's the absolute best, and I am so thankful she got me through this, and I will continue working with her in the coming years as we continue to navigate things.

Amazing Attorney
I actually found Megan on AVVO looking for a highly rated Attorney that has represented Father's in custody battles. There were several great reviews, so I did a consultation and had her review my case. Her response after the review, I knew I had the right lawyer for Me and my son. My case was extensive with years and years of evidence in multiple boxes. She and her assistant attorney went through all of it and sorted out the important vs not so important when fighting for custody. She made a plan and executed it precisely to benefit our case and it worked perfectly. There were several times that my frustration of the legal system got to me and she would listen to me vent or read emails of me venting and she was patient and understanding and would reassure me that she knew why I was frustrated and helped me get through the emotional aspects of a custody battle without getting upset at me for being somewhat unpleasant at times. After a long 2 yr process (other party went through 3 lawyers) we finally made it to the end. And I, an unmarried father, that doesn't have any rights from birth, won primary physical custody of my son, thanks to Megan. (If you don't fight for what you want, don't cry for what you lose!) Guys, Hire Megan if you're serious about wanting your children. I did. I won. Best thing that's ever happened to me!

You can not go wrong with Megan!
My husband and I hired Megan to gain custody of my stepson at the age of 5. His mother was no longer able to take care of him and keep him safe due to a mental illness she refused to seek help with. Megan helped us to gain all of the evidence needed to make sure we would know the outcome once we entered the courtroom. She helped us with our patience, and walked us step by step through every stage of the process. Her legal assistant, Amber, was also invaluable to us during that time. Amber is now an attorney herself. Once we were in the courtroom, Megan proved why she is so reliable in winning cases. She is relentless. She does not let anyone say anything false without cross-examining and proving it to be false (hence all of the homework of evidence gathering on the front end that never seems to happen fast enough to desperate parents fighting for the safety of their children, but which is necessary). She saved our son's life. We truly believe that. We are forever indebted to her hard work and awesome presence in the courtroom.

Excellent Attorney
I cannot say enough good things about Megan. She made the divorce process much easier for me...responded to emails almost immediately...copied me on all correspondence with opposing counsel...handled all business as soon as she possibly could. Megan is very easy to talk to, explains things well, and is extremely knowledgeable about the law. She’s the best attorney I’ve worked with... Do not hesitate to call her. I highly recommend! :-)

Megan had a long initial meeting with me that lasted much longer than the appointment was scheduled for. She listened to me very carefully and answered all of my questions thoughtfully. Since the initial meeting, she has answered several additional questions via email with no additional fee.

One of the best
Megan is relentless when working for you. She informs you of all your options, makes suggestions, works fast and is always reachable which is unheard of in the legal world.

Family Law Experience
I never thought I would need an attorney to advocate for me and my family. However, when I did, I was quickly referred to Megan by a friend that had used her before. Megan is very passionate and probably works harder than anyone I have witnessed. She was an amazing communicator and always kept me informed and updated. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing attorney services in a family case.

Amazing! Would Use Again!
Megan was great! she gave great advice up front at the first meeting. She is straight forward and doesn't hold back. Great communication. Megan was my lawyer for a case that took about 2 1/2 to 3 years. In the end, I received more than I could have ever expected. Her assistant, Ambere, was very helpful as well. Never made you feel like talking to you was an inconvenience (no matter how many times you called and asked the same questions). She knows her stuff and I would definitely use her in the future if the situation arose. I've used other lawyers, but Megan was by far the best one I have come across!

Hire Megan
I am beyond pleased that I hired Megan Wooster as my lawyer. I believe because of her we got the best possible outcome. Child custody cases can be difficult but Megan remained steady and calm which gave me reassurance. I completely trust her. I highly recommend Megan Wooster.

Joint custody case
I hired Mrs. Wooster for my custody case. Her and her staff were very professional, quick to respond, and most times immediate. She walked me through the process of evidence collecting and was very clear on what she needed and what was pertinent. My county is several hours drive from her office, that was never an issue. I was included on any and all correspondence between opposing counsel and the court system. Because of her diligence, my case ended with the other party coming to an agreement in which I made very minimal concessions. This was a joint custody case. I have recommended her to several other people and will continue to use her in the future.
