About Megan

Learn Megan’s areas of practice.

I am proud to practice family law at The McCarthy Law Firm in Tucson.  I am also a proud Hoosier; I grew up in northern Indiana and graduated from Indiana University School of Law in Bloomington.  I love Tucson and have practiced here since 2002.  I began my career as a prosecutor for the Pima County Attorney’s Office and then worked in private practice representing creditors in bankruptcy.  I am an Arizona State Bar Certified Family Law Specialist and have practiced exclusively in family law since 2012.  I frequently handle dissolutions of marriage for clients with complex assets or high net worth.  I especially enjoy cases where spousal maintenance is an issue or where the case requires business valuations or division and asset tracing.  I also enjoy handling post-decree cases where the division of assets or support must be enforced or clarified.

I am happiest spending time with my family, practicing yoga, cooking, watching Indiana Hoosiers basketball, hunting through thousands of pages of financial documents to figure out where all of someone's money went, and hiding out in a quiet place with a good book.

I would be happy to speak with you about your case.  My team consists of two paralegals, Shannon and Elizabeth, and me. We enjoy our work because of the people we meet.  We are honored when someone chooses us to represent them.

Great service
Megan did a great job, she kept me informed and went above what I expected even with a full case load. She was also very accommodating as I live in a different time zone than she is located in. Excellent service and a great outcome for me. I would highly recommend Megan to anyone needing services in the Tucson area.

High Conflict Divorce
Megan was wonderful from the first consultation and through the entire process. She is smart and assertive she kept the process on track and me focused during one of the most challenging and horrible times in my life. The outcome of the divorce and custody was exactly what I was trying for. 50/50 =)

Thank you, Megan!
I am sitting here in my beautiful home, looking at my garden and thinking how I owe it all to you, Megan. I knew as soon as I met you that I wanted you to be the lawyer that represented me in my divorce case. I had already talked to two other lawyers, but was not impressed with either one of them. I was very impressed with you and rightly so! I have my home, money in the bank and my children were able to receive the land their grandparents wanted to keep in the family. I will never forget you, Megan. Thank you so much! Sincerely, Nancy

A Rockstar!
Megan knows her stuff and is a great person. I aimed for a nice 50/50 thing (don't we all), but my ex became uncooperative and turned it into a real fight. In court, she ate my ex and his lawyer and spit them out...lol! She's a bulldog when it is necessary and I was so lucky to have her by my side the whole time during what was the most horrible time in my life. I highly recommend her!

Personable. Professional. Knowledgeable
I hired Megan Hill for my Legal separation based on the recommendation of a therapist, and I was very glad I did. She was able to get me what I needed from the opposition, and she made me feel at ease during one of the hardest times of my life. She was patient, knowledgeable and always took time to explain how and why things work the way they do. I was completely new to the legal world, and Megan was extremely helpful in guiding me through the entire process. I feel like she really cares about me as a person, not just a case. Megan and her assistant Sabrina and their willingness to go above and beyond earns them a five star rating. I highly recommend Megan Hill for any family law matters.

Outstanding lawyer
Megan is very skilled at what she does. There was not a single time she was not spot on about what the opposing counsel or my husband would do next. Her advice was everything any client could want. She was extremely dependable and timely. I have great respect for her work ethic and as a person. She was always gentle and very understanding, even when I was not in the best place. I highly recommend her for any family law needs.

Excellent Family Law Attorney
Megan Hill represented me in a family law case. She is knowledgable and gives sound advice and direction. She showed concern for my children and me but maintained professionalism on all levels. The thing that most impressed me with Megan was her ability to remember details that helped build my case and kept me from having to repeat details. She works quickly and efficiently, which is a big deal when you are paying by the hour. The fast response time of Megan and her staff gave me a lot of comfort during a very emotional time.

Excellent Divorce Attorney
Divorce with children is the most unimaginable experience one can go through. Through all the ugliness of a high conflict divorce process, I was lucky enough to encounter the most compassionate attorney in Megan Hill, as well as her paralegal Sabrina Bell. Their skillset is beyond compare, but most important was their patience and kindness. With all the emotional aspects of this complicated stage in my life, I could not even begin to think how I would work through a complicated attorney/client relationship, at the same time dealing with everything else. They were always super communicative, responsive and very very professional. Being new to the area, I came to learn that I made the right choice as Megan's reputation in the community is second to none! If you're reading this review or other positive ones regarding Megan and her team, look no further as you would be making a mistake!

Thank you, Megan!
Megan was absolutely wonderful. She assisted me with emergency temporary orders, coordinating the necessary financial needs, and other major concerns I wasn't sure what to do with or how to handle. Definitely not where I thought I would ever be but I'm incredibly grateful for Megan and her team. Thank you!

Great communicator and compassionate
I hired Megan to facilitate my divorce and throughout the entire process she and her assistant Sabrina were great communicators, compassionate and always kept my best interests at heart. I am happy with the outcome and would definitely hire Megan again.

The Best
Megan was amazing from the moment I met her till the signing of the Decree. She is an excellent attorney who has a fantastic grasp of the legal system. She put me at ease so many times when I feared for my future. She is an even better person than attorney and her support and kind words helped guide me through the most difficult time in my life. She truly has her client’s best interest in mind, at times making recommendations that would benefit me and not her. I can’t thank Megan and her paralegal, Sabrina enough. I will never forget what they did for me.

Great and ethically sound attorney
Megan is an incredibly knowledgeable attorney. Many of the other attorneys in Tucson consult with her about financial matters associated with family law cases. She is hands down the best at working through those details. Additionally, she is ethically sound in her practice. The challenge is that, unlike some attorneys, she is not going to sugar coat your case. She will tell you if you are being unreasonable in the eyes of the court/law. She will not draw and quarter your ex for you. She will advocate for you. She will advocate for what is both legal and fair. She advocates for the best outcomes for children. This can be very hard when emotions are running high. However, it is exactly what I, and most other people going through a divorce and/or custody case, need when hiring an attorney.

Awesome
Came to megan after having an unpleasant experience with another lawyer who was clueless. She was able to jump in and wrap up my divorce in short period of time with a an unreasonable other party. In my profession I always look for "studs" and megan and her team are top of the field.

Hero Status
Going through a divorce is beyond difficult. The experience can leave you feeling hopeless and devastated. Megan fought for me. She stood by my side and helped me stay strong. When I couldn’t face it at times, she faced it for me. She cares. She is one of my personal heroes.

Just getting started.
As of now I have not had a consultation or a chance to talk to Megan yet but I've been in contact with her paralegal/assistant Sabrina and she has been amazing help! Very patient and extremely helpful and I'm confident that if my case has a chance then this is the right team for the challenge.

Hired her for my Spoucial Maintenance
Megan did an amazing job preparing me for court, and also filling all documents with the courts. I did end up consulting with her and because of her help in preparing me I was more than capable of handling the actual court hearing on my own. Without Megan's help I doubt I would have had the same outcome.

Another waste of time
If you are looking for clear communication and going through a divorce , this is not the lawyer for you. Her lack of understanding qualified vs non qualified accounts and how to not outsource such common items left me missing 100s of thousands of wasted time money and effort. Worst firm I have ever worked with.
