Meghan graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University in 2004 with a degree in Psychology and Humanities. She subsequently obtained her J.D. from Willamette University in 2008. While at Willamette, she was the Research Editor of the Willamette Journal of International Law and Dispute Resolution. She previously worked for a firm in Hillsboro, practicing juvenile law, criminal defense and family law. Prior to that, she was an associate for a firm in Salem, and primarily practiced family law.
As an experienced practitioner focusing on issues related to children and families, Meghan intimately understands the concerns and needs of her clients. She believes in the compassionate and individualized practice of law. Focusing on each client’s particular case, she works hard to provide a logical and reasonable resolution of the matter. Her practice includes juvenile law -- including defense of children and parents in dependency and delinquency matters, adoptions, and adult criminal defense.
In addition to being a director on the board of the WCBA, Meghan is a member of the Oregon Criminal Defense Lawyers Association (OCDLA), the OCDLA Juvenile Law Section, the Executive Committee of the Oregon State Bar (OSB) Juvenile Law Section, and the OSB Family Law Section. In her spare time, she enjoys working in her garden, photograph, and spending time with her incorrigible golden retriever, Hayley.
