Margaret was wonderful in assisting our family with information regarding the short-sale of our home. She went out of her way to help me after the initial work she did for us and give me some forms to use for future mitigation. I highly recommend Margaret to anyone in need of legal services.

Through a recommendation from a former colleague, I engaged Margaret to help me negotiate my partnership agreement for a start-up real estate consulting firm. The agreement my partner had presented, was poorly crafted and lacked the professional elements of a true partnership agreement. Many of the provisions were one-sided and unfairly weighted to the majority interest. Not only did Margaret represent my interests as she proposed fair and constructive feedback, she also rewrote and re-crafted most of the document. The result was a fair and unbiased agreement that all of the minority partners felt comfortable with. She coached me through my initial emotional reactions and helped me focus on the important issues I needed to be aware of as I took this important step. I will be looking for more opportunities to work with Margaret in the future.

Meg was recommended by an attorney friend of ours. She took over the renegotiation of the unfair office building lease that we were stuck with. We had made no progress with the landlord on our own for months. Once she took over, her firm yet reasonable approach worked. She was proactive with us and kept working on our case day in and day out until we got the outcome that we had hoped for. In fact it was better than what we expected. Since that case she is the first lawyer we approach with any legal issues related to real estate or contract reviews and negotiations. She just recently reviewed various documents and contracts for a gas station I purchased.
Meg is always a pleasure to talk to. She is friendly and courteous and gives more time and attention to every client than I have ever experienced with an attorney.
I feel confident knowing she is on my side and has my interest in mind.
I strongly recommend her.
