I hired Megan to modify a parenting plan. When things got nasty she stopped working for me and just signed things and showed up to court. She was very hard to get in contact with and did not act in my or my children's best interest. I wanted to like her- and think for the right person she would do a great job.

Attorney Megan Card was hired for a child custody case. Ms. Card was honest, ethical, and fair. She informed me on a continual basis about the status of the case and she was always honest when explaining all aspects of the actions that occurred in the case and how it affected me. I always knew Ms. Card was doing her very best to represent me to the fullest extent possible. Ms. Card was also always ethical. She did not do anything that caused me to have any concerns about the way the case was being handled. She ensured that my interests were always considered at each court hearing while working toward a positive resolution of the case. Ms. Card was also very fair. She never caused me to have any concern about the amount of time she stated she worked on the case. You could not ask for a more honest attorney. To not be overcharged was a blessing. In closing, I WHOLEHEARTEDLY AND WITHOUT ANY HESITATION ENDORSE ATTORNEY MEGAN CARD!

Child custody cases are something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. The thought of your child's life at the mercy of a judge who has never met them (or you for that matter) is terrifying.
My child's father was completely out of his life for over a year (over half of my child's life). Then he met someone, who had a little boy, and all the sudden after over a year of no contact, I was served with custody paperwork. His dad now wanted to be a part of our child's life. In his proposed parenting plan he wanted a 50/50 split of custody with us switching our child to a different home every other week. Though he had NEVER even had our child alone for even an hour in our childs entire life! He had never changed a diaper, prepared a meal, given a bath, trimmed fingernails or taken our child to the doctor. Nor did he know we were regulars at Seattle Childrens Hospital due to our child being diagnosed with an agressive autoimmune disorder which had required our child being put to sleep for steroid injections in multiple spots that were affected by this disorder.
I was brought to tears multiple times when thinking about how the health and well being of our child would be affected if a 50/50 split was granted.
I immediately started researching lawyers in my area. I needed someone who would understand my fears and concerns. Someone who knew the law like the back of their hand and was able to be the strength i knew I needed, and I couldnt be. Someone who was knowledgeable, ethical, intelligent and could help me decipher what all this legal jargon meant, what steps i needed to take and most importantly, how this case and the outcome of it would affect my child's life.
Everything I heard about Ms. Card was centered around great things she had done for people and our community (she set up FREE will clinics for veterans and first responders in our community partnering with other lawyers to serve as many veterans and first responders as possible). From her past clients I heard over and over again that she was a dedicated, passionate, hardworking attorney.
Ms.Card had been a legal intern in college, worked an externship for Justice Stephens of the Supreme Court, is the Chair for the WA state young lawyers committee of the bar association. Ms. Cardis on the board for the Thurston county bar association, serves as the chair for the young lawyer association of the local bar and is a member of the WA state association of defense lawyers.
After researching many lawyers, I can honestly say, I'm so glad I chose Ms. Card! I couldnt ask for a more amazing attorney. She had my child's best interest at heart, and worked confidently and aggressively to make sure his best interest was always the focus throghout the court process.
Ms. Card asked me what I was hoping for the final parenting plan to be, and, after my response she was brutally honest with me. She pushed me to see what was reasonable and obtainable in WA state, and still fought hard for what I had hoped the outcome would be. She never lead me astray or told me things that were not truly obtainable. She was quick to answer my questions and concerns as well as calming my fears. I felt safe and confident that she was always looking out for our best interest.
In terms of cost, she is very reasonable. In fact, I would pay her weight in gold to have her represent me and my child again. After all, the decision to hire Ms. Card to represent my child and I was a life altering decision. I am thankful for my choice, and forever grateful for the dedication, time and energy Ms.Card spent making sure our outcome was what we had hoped for and most importantly, what was in the best interest of the health and well being of my child.
If you're looking for an amazing attorney, Ms.Card is the one for you! Just ask my little boy who is adjusting very well to his twice a week dinner dates and every other Saturday overnight stays with his dad.
