Amazing, skilled, professional and a winner!
Megan helped me win my disability case after many appeals and back and forth she did it ! We had a court hearing with one of the “hardest” judges and she made it happened! She is one of the most skilled lawyer I have ever hired. If you are looking for a top lawyer for disability she will be your best choice! She did a great job communicating and took her time To explain everything and made me feel very comfortable and confident.
