My strategy in family law and civil litigation is always what is in the best interest of the children first and the client second. Practicing family law and civil litigation for a decade has given us the ability to understand and determine the needs of our various clients as individuals, on a case-by-case basis. When I strategize for any case, at any juncture in the case, I am considering all moving parts. I am considering the financial pros and cons, the emotional and mental aspects potential litigation or non-litigation may have on all parties and/or the children. I am considering the personalities of the Judge, the Guardian Ad Litem, the Mediators, the clients and even opposing counsel. I am strategic in every move we make on a case from beginning to end. I tell my clients that I am representing them on paper as Megan the Lawyer, but I am representing them in real life as Megan the Lawyer, the Mother, the business owner, the therapist, and the financial adviser. Being a good family law lawyer requires all hats to be on at all times when I strategize for cases.
We not only work to achieve the best possible results for all of our clients, but we ensure that they feel supported during the process. I pride myself on active communication with clients as well as an atmosphere that can make anyone feel welcomed, understood, and heard.
