Awesome lawyer to have on my side
For over 20 years I lived with the fact that I was convicted of something I shouldn't have been for saving someone life perhaps. I wanted a new start on my life an Meghan got me that right by standing by my side and fighting for what was right. A huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders and now I can face life as a new man. I highly recommend her, she will fight for you from the start to finish. Meghan, thank you so much.

Professional, trustworthy,and informative
Highly recommended...I left meetings with all my questions answered and did not feel rushed. I chose Meghan because I felt I could trust her. She and her staff responded to emails very quickly. My case went down from DUI to a wet reckless at a rather high BAC. Thanks for making the process a little easier to swallow.

I recently was arested for a DUI charge and jumped the gun and hired a laywer from a mailer that i recieved shortly after being arrested. The firm was David L Chesley. To make the story short they were the absoulte worst atty you could possibly hire!Tthe only phone calls i reciieved from them were for payments to there firm. Every call i made went unanswerd! Then by the grace of god i was referd to the law offices of Virginia Landy by a friend who had used them in the past and was infatic! about them. He insisted that i call. I DId and to say it was life changing would be an understament. Megan Taylor is who i consulted with, and from the very beginning my confidence in them was high. She was very honest, knoledgeable and informative.The staff is extreamly nice and helpful and make you feel like someone if taking care of you. I could go on and on but i think know you get were i am going with this ? The outcome of my case was better than i expected. They saved my job, family,home and career due to the presisstance, experience and actual compassion these people have for their clients. They held my hand and walked me threw the whole process. I would recomend going no were other than here for all you legal needs. I promise you will not find better representation or nicer people in Orange co.

An exceptionally committed professional...
Ms. Taylor came to my aid at a moment when (like many accused of a DUI) I felt most vulnerable and the certain recipient of a subsequent mountain of judicial scorn and punishment. She explained my situation in detail and the most appropriate (and realistic) options available to me. Shen then set to work, aided by her team of equally committed associates and soon after the proverbial tide began to turn. Its now just over a year since my arrest and I can confidently report that Meghan absolutely manged to move mountains, accomplishing everything she set out to do, including a reduced charge and zero additional punishment by way of the DMV. An exceptionally committed professional, Meghan O'Brien Taylor is absolutely the right choice for anyone in need of excellent legal representation.

Highly Recommended, Smart, Hard Working, and Very Capable.
I hired Meghan to represent me in a DUI case towards the end of 2010. Getting a DUI is not a fun experience. Dealing with court, drivers license, DMV, etc. can be overwhelming. Meghan made the process very straightforward for me. Meghan reviewed my case thoroughly, combing through even the smallest of details. She handled everything for me, building my case, court appearances, paperwork, etc. When it came time for me to plea, she convinced me to keep fighting. I'm glad she did, and when all is said and done my case was reduced to reckless driving. It's not magic, every case is different, but without Meghan's vast knowledge of the process and hard work I would have never been able to plea my case on my own. She is a powerhouse and I recommend her highly.
