Meaghan’s going to give you a part of herself for your case and you will walk away with peace of mind. 

You can expect her to challenge you and demand honesty of you.

But with that you should expect empathy and focused attention.

Grounded by her roots in a law enforcement family (cue TV drama series “Blue Bloods”), Meaghan prides herself on remaining kind and humble.  She has earned a reputation as trustworthy and gracious. Meaghan will make sure you are fully protected, aware of your options, and fight for your voice to be heard.

Her unique vision to “chase the lion” (… just ask her) motivated her to form d|law, which has enabled her to get back to the basics of true counseling of clients.  Meaghan’s unique vision of transforming clients and restoring mindsets forms the cornerstones of d|law.

"My experience with Meaghan was nothing less than excellent. Considering the very stressful circumstances, she was able to put my mind at ease and guide me through the entire process of my custody case.  She never made me feel as though she was only in it to take my money, never wasting time on anything that wasn't important and relevant to my case.  Always professional and direct, I felt I could count on Meaghan to handle everything and trust her to do it with the best interests of my child and myself, in mind.  I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of her services and will gladly contact her if I'm ever in need of future guidance."
