Legal issues that impact the future of your family are often confusing and emotionally exhausting. When dealing with a family law issue, from divorce to custody to domestic violence, it is easy to feel lost—you don’t know who to turn to or what next step to take.

I am family law attorney and divorce attorney Megan Rachel. I am committed to helping families and clients deal with the issues related to divorce, child custody, parentage, adoption and more. If your family is facing a challenging legal issue, I can help.
Divorce, child custody decisions, and other family law decisions are often some of the most difficult legal problems a family will encounter.

Choose The Right Family Law Attorney For You
The Collin County area is home to many respectable law firms and attorneys. With so many options, it can be difficult to understand the best choice to handle your family law issues. You need someone who understands your legal concerns, has the knowledge and skills to address them, and will always work to protect your best interests.
As you search for the best divorce and family law attorney for you, I encourage you to consider these items that I believe can be great assets to you during this difficult time.
My experience: I have practiced family law in the Frisco, McKinney, Plano, and Allen Texas for nearly 30 years. My work has helped me gain invaluable knowledge, skills and working relationships with other area legal professionals.
There truly isn’t a family law issue I haven’t encountered or one that I’m not prepared to help you address.
My commitment to you: Many lawyers and law firms are focused solely on winning cases and collecting fees. While I am certainly committed to helping you successfully resolve your legal issues, my focus is far beyond the final outcome. I’m also committed to creating a relationship with you, making you feel at ease during a trying time, and ensuring that the lines of communication between us are always open and effective. I truly want your legal proceedings to be as swift and painless as possible and will do everything in my power to make that goal a reality.
My focus on family law: Many attorneys practice multiple areas of the law throughout their careers. Not me. Early on, I fell in love with helping families through tough times and have done nothing but family law throughout my career. This allows me to stay focused on one thing, and it ensures I remain current on changes to the laws relating to divorce, child custody, child support, adoption and more.
To help you choose the right attorney for your family law matter, I’m happy to answer any questions you may have about my background and approach to family law issues. Please feel free call me.
