Awesome Family Attorney
I went to Megan seeking legal advise on getting custody for my daughter, she took her time, she explained everything in detail and if i did not understand something she would re-word it. she gave me options (for my particular case) told me what i could do and what i could not and she would explain why. she made me feel comfortable to leave my case in her hands which was very important to me. she was just over all Great!

Adoption assistance
Megan has been working with my wife and I for right around a year to finalize our adoption of our daughter. She has been so helpful and informative. If we had a question she was never hard to find and gave us answers quickly. I would recommend her to anyone who needed legal help. Thanks Megan!!!!

Family Lawyer going above and beyond
My husband I had adopted before, however we had never done a private adoption without an agency. Every step of the way Mrs Shepard was there to answer questions and was easily contacted for feedback or support. Mrs Shepard went above and beyond becoming more than just our lawyer she became a part of our family. I would highly encourage anyone seeking a family law representative that wants passionate involvement and representation to use Mrs Shepard as her experience and abilities are above par.
