In her three-decade career, Megan has established a reputation for being compassionate, committed and respected, her three hallmarks of representation.

To take the worry out of the process she takes great care to build a trusting relationship with every client and to provide compassionate and supportive guidance throughout their legal proceedings. In this way, she works to limit the emotional stress and worry associated with family law matters.
  • Committed: She is focused on helping every client obtain the most favorable resolutions possible for their legal situation. While a favorable outcome will vary from case to case, Megan is committed to protecting the best interests and future of every client. Once realistic goals for each client’s situation are set, she explores every possible legal strategy to obtain them.
  • Respected: Having worked in the same courtrooms for nearly 30 years, Megan has created strong working relationships with area judges and attorneys. These individuals know that she respects the law and the legal process, and that she always acts with her clients’ best interests at heart. This is incredibly important during negotiations and court proceedings.

Additionally, she is a member of the family law section of the Dallas Bar Association.
