Meagan’s family law experience began during law school with an externship at the St. Andrew Legal Clinic, assisting moderate-means clients with divorce and child custody issues. Following law school she became an associate in this firm, where she is now a partner. Her passion for and dedication to helping people navigate emotionally challenging life changes is reflected in her professional and volunteer work.
Meagan’s family law practice focuses on a variety of matters, primarily complex divorce, prenuptial agreements, mediation, and collaborative divorce. She also has extensive experience representing clients in divorce litigation, legal separations, dissolution of domestic partnerships, paternity actions, post-divorce modifications and other litigation including enforcement actions. Meagan’s cases regularly involve the valuation and division of business interests and real estate, along with other unique assets and traditional family wealth.
Meagan’s goal is to provide all of her clients with a high level of service and guidance while preserving assets and minimizing unnecessary conflict. She is uniquely situated as a counselor to guide her clients in making decisions that have long-term impacts on them and their children, and she takes that privilege very seriously. Her strategic and measured approach to each case is designed to meet the client’s individual circumstances and needs. No two cases are the same and each client deserves an individualized experience. Meagan has been recognized for her work in family law by Super Lawyers, as an Oregon Rising Star for 3 consecutive years (2019 – 2021).
In her spare time, Meagan enjoys running, yoga, travel, and spending time with her two children and whatever pets they bring home.
