I can not rate Megan highly enough, she was a brilliant listener and advisor during a very turbulent situation. Megan was patient and caring during all stages and nothing was too much trouble for her. She is an outstanding solicitor and if you need advice and guidance then I would suggest calling her!
Samantha Burchell
Megan Mahesan has been a pleasure and greatly appreciated support to work with throughout this emotionally and procedurally complex process; her impeccable knowledge and professionalism was matched by her efficiency, excellent communication (with clear setting of expectations incl. availability) and her kind generosity with her genuinely compassionate spirit.
Natalie Heath
Megan was great. She explained every step of the process clearly and in terms that were easily understandable. Nothing was too much trouble and if I didn’t understand something would explain in a different way and made sure I understood what was going on and the next steps.
Stuart Elkins
Megan is a very compassionate person who put me at ease.
