“Megan Allgood was my lawyer and worked so hard for me. She did the impossible to get me out of a reckless driving. She didn’t take no for an answer. I would always recommend her. She not only works here, but she loves her job and clients court appointed or paid. I can’t thank her enough for saving my driving record. I owe her so much. Please call her for any need she will help you with no treating you like a criminal. She saved my license from being in a diabetic issue and hit a mailbox to saving my life. Thank you beautiful. I appreciate you very much.”
