Client Comments

"Megan is a firecracker who knows the area of family law. I give her the highest recommendation, but she is one part of the equation. The other part, and I'd be remiss in not mentioning her, is Megan's spectacular paralegal, Laurice. Together they make a complete team whom I trust for my legal needs when it comes to all things family law related."

-Dave Sellars

"Megan Sherr's warm and engaging personality helped build an honest, realistic, and informed client-attorney relationship. Her significant network of contacts and resources within the judicial system in Denver proved to be a huge asset. I was informed of every action, and her emotional support helped make difficult decisions easier. My case was given priority, and a speedy resolve was reached without unnecessary extensions, delays, or additional fees. "

-Andrea Marx

"There is no way to say enough about Megan Sherr. My case has been a very difficult one, and she has shown nothing but compassion and has always been there for me. Her legal expertise, I believe, is the best in the legal community. I have been protected and represented extremely well."

-Nina Ickovic

"Megan Sherr is top notch, well-versed, and laser sharp. She quickly understands matters at hand and underlying dynamics between parties. She has very good preparedness for mediations or court sessions."

-Oksana Doncila

"I have known Megan Sherr since the summer of 2011. Megan was referred to me as an outstanding family law attorney through a network of other attorneys. I observed that Megan Sherr was intelligent, competent, conscientious, diligent, and efficient. These attributes were expected, but not to the degree they were displayed by Megan. What I did not expect to find in an attorney was that Megan showed empathy, extreme honesty, a genuine compassion for her clients, and a wonderful personality. These positive traits allowed Megan to be very approachable and promoted a comfortable working relationship. I was confident that I was in good hands and my best interests were being addressed Megan. I would more than highly recommend Megan Sherr to anyone in need of a family law attorney."

-Rand Hogarth

"Megan Sherr is by far one of the most intelligent women I have ever known. She spent a significant period of time as a prosecutor in Denver, so she not only has the intelligence necessary to be the best but also an incredible presence in court. She is wise, witty, compassionate and aggressive when necessary. She is very well respected by all those who interact with her. She is willing to fight the good fight but also, will not hesitate to arm you with the truth of your situation. She always responded to my calls or emails in a timely manner. Most of all, she truly cares about her clients and the works she does. She has won numerous awards and accolades in her career. There is not anyone better out there. "

"Megan Sherr has represented me for the last 7 years in very difficult, contentious proceedings. She has been thorough, effective, and responsive in all aspects of my legal representation. From a personal side, she has been supportive and empathic to what I was going through and I always felt she represented me and my children more as a trusted friend instead of a hired advocate. Her staff embodied these virtues as well and I cannot imagine what position I would be in today without the professional and personal support they have provided."

-Cliff Purslow

"Megan Sherr guided and supported me through the worst time of my life. Her strength, professionalism, knowledge, common sense and compassion truly saved me and made me feel safe and supported in the process. Megan helped me to focus on what was important and allowed me the freedom to fall apart without judgment. She was accessible and answered all of my questions and concerns readily. Her paralegal, Laurice, was equally amazing. She seems to work day and night. I am grateful to this firm and deeply appreciative of how they handled my divorce and me. It is a difficult task to be kind yet zealous in your representation and Megan does that with a remarkable ease and grace. "

-Kerri Lombardi

I hold Sherr Puttman Akins Lamb in the highest regard."

-Lauren Millet

"Megan Sherr is very professional in every aspect of the practice. She is always timely in communication and made everything very clear of what was going on in the proceedings and what I could expect. She is understanding and works hard to get the best possible outcome for you. I would highly recommend Megan to anyone."
