With the separation at hand, I was a mess trying to figure life out and how to take care of my kids and what the next steps would be. I was confused and lost. From the first meeting with Megan Bent at Bliss Law group – Family and Divorce Law, I felt at ease for the first time in months. Megan has an extensive knowledge of Family/Divorce and Child Custody and law, true professionalism and caring to protect her client’s best interests. Beside all those qualities Megan brings the one thing to the table that a client truly deserves, a caring heart that not only took care of me but, a deep desire to ensure the best of care for my kids.
When you need a family Law attorney you need more that someone that understands law; you need someone who can provide counsel, realistic information, and emotional understanding. Megan Bent, enabled me to relax knowing with full confidence that everything was being handled with my family’s best interest always in mind.
Megan by far met all my expectations and many more. The entire staff is professional, courteous and knowledgeable. They kept me informed at every turn. I recommend not only Megan Bent, but Bliss Law Group with full confidence knowing they will always take care of you and your family.

Heather and her office at Bliss Law Firm handled my high conflict family law case about 5 years ago. I was thoroughly impressed with their attention to detail, knowledge and their aggressiveness in fighting for a favorable outcome for their clients. Without their extensive knowledge of the intricacies of family law, I know that I would not have received the outcome that I did. Fast forward 5 years later, another highly stressful situation developed and as anyone who has experienced the level of anxiety and apprehension that goes along with family law cases, I knew exactly who to reach out to. Despite Heather being 3,000 miles away on a business conference, she had her team reach out to me the same day I reached out to her for assistance. Heather remembered me by name and remembered every detail of my case from 5 years ago! As usual with her expertise and knowledge, I was put at ease immediately. I have always been impressed by the level of detail, dedication, respect and compassion that Heather and her office had for me. But to reach out to me during her personal time 3,000 miles away on a weekend to make sure my needs were addressed immediately during a stressful time made my respect and appreciation for Heather and her law firm rise exponentially. I know with full confidence that you will be in the best possible hands with Heather and her office at Bliss Law Firm on your side!

Lindsey is an engaged listener who knows exactly what questions to ask to obtain the desired outcome. I highly recommend Lindsey Rogers. Thank you, Lindsey!”
“Lindsay was great at working my case in court. When the initial judgment was not in our favor, she submitted a revision and we were able to achieve our goals. She is also great about getting back to me same day. 5/5 would recommend!”
“Heather Bliss and Staff are wonderful! Heather is a genuine caring individual who will make sure you and your loved ones are best served. Although she is fantastic she does not allow ego to drive your case, she is realistic, honest, compassionate and will not waste your time or money chasing frivolous things. She will put your mind at ease the first time you meet, she is incredibly knowledgeable and her work comes from the heart. I have used her a couple times and she made the process run as smoothly and stress free as possible. Asset the legal field and her clients.”
