Unlike other firms we take heart in all of our cases and are zealous advocates for our clients. We understand the legal process when it comes to Family Law matters. We walk you through the difficult legal process with as little stress on you emotionally and monetarily as possible.


We are dealing with complex Family legal matters such as legal separation, divorce, domestic violence, and restraining orders are highly emotional, especially when children, property, and retirement plans (such as pensions and 401Ks) are involved. If you are contemplating or dealing with legal separation, divorce, child custody/visitation, or seeking support, in San Fernando / Los Angeles Metro, we can help you.


In addition, there are times when we can work with opposing counsel or the opposing party to find an amicable resolution to all issues. Even when parties agree it is important to have an attorney to make sure that your legal interests are either being protected or waived knowingly

This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Super Lawyer Who Is Ethical, Honest, Compassionate, Efficient, and Extremely Knowledgable About Law
I am a Legal Document Assistant, registered and bonded per California Business & Professions Code Sections 6400-6415, which authorizes me to prepare and file legal documents for self-represented individuals at a client's specific direction. I have known Mrs. Wilson professionally since 2009, and she is my "go-to" attorney whenever I encounter someone who simply does not fit the "self-help" approach to family law matters. EVERY SINGLE PERSON who I have referred to Mrs. Wilson has always called or emailed me back to thank me profusely for the referral. The consistent theme of the feedback is that Mrs. Wilson was able to efficiently help them, explained the law in a way that they could understand without all of the legalese, and that they found extremely good value for the money they spent on her services (whether on a limited scope consultation basis, or by hiring her for full representation). In essence, the people I have referred to her all have consistently felt the same way as pretty much every other person who has commented below. More specifically, I had a client who came to me to prepare documents in an existing case. After serving the prepared documents on the other side, the other party requested a hearing, at which point I referred the client to Mrs. Wilson for representation. After the hearing, the client called me and personally told me that the client felt that Mrs. Wilson had “accomplished more in one hearing than the client's previous attorney had done over the course of a year and a half”. I would say that this particular comment speaks volumes about Mrs. Wilson's ability as a zealous advocate for her clients.

Definitely a Super Lawyer!!!
I was involved in a bitter and complex child custody battle against one of the most renowned and highest paid law firms. My prior attorneys lost at every hearing, even though they were also well known. However, a friend referred me to Ms. Wilson and everything changed. When Ms. Wilson took on my case not only did she win for me but justice finally prevailed as a result of Ms. Wilson's outstanding skills and guidance. It is clear the Ms. Wilson is savvy in legal strategy, discovery, and trial. I highly recommend Ms. Wilson as she is clearly one of the top and most skilled family law attorney in California.

Best Attorney in Los Angeles
Mrs. Wilson is smart, direct, and trustworthy. I felt like all the other attorney's I consulted were just trying to tell me what I wanted to hear and I paid the price for it. Mrs. Wilson let me know that she couldn't fix what happened in the past but that we could improve things going forward and she did. I wasted a lot of money on attorney's before I was blessed enough to be referred to Mrs. Wilson by a friend. I have and will refer friends and family to her in the future.

Excellent Attorney
Margaret is an excellent attorney, I have never met an attorney like her with such ethics and intergrity. She truly will do whatever it takes to do an excellent job for her clients. Her client's are first to her and she fights for what's right by going above and beyond what most attorney's would even think of doing. I highly recommend her and have never met an attorney as competent, honest and hard working as she has been for me and my family. Anyone who employs her services will sincerely be very happy with her.

Do not hire. Look elsewhere
Very hard to get a hold of her on the phone. She has no secretary or paralegal so that shows what kind of cheap law office she's running. Very long. Slow. Process. Look somewhere else. Takes payment right away but work. Service. Forget about it

"I just reviewed an answer of Ms. Wilson on a family law matter. Not only was the answer courteous and correct, it was customized to the individual needs of the Avvo asker and specific down to the very courthouse where the matter was taking place. This was a great answer and contained qualities that any prospective client would want to have in an attorney."
Family Attorney | Sep 04
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Margaret is a top notch and caring attorney who strongly advocates for her clients. She is very knowledgeable about all aspects of family law. I have seen her get great results and that is why I refer all my clients to her for any divorce, separation, child custody, child support, alimony (spousal support), DV restraining orders, paternity suit, etc. One thing that sets Margaret part from many other family law attorneys is that she above all cares about her clients as people and about their lives. She takes the time to learn about you before she starts to give advice. Coupled with her in-depth legal knowledge this makes her an outstanding attorney to have on your side."
