A true South Lake County girl, Merideth was raised in Clermont, with roots in the community on her father’s side all the way back to 1913! She has been an attorney since 1997, with experience working first in Tallahassee for Former Florida Supreme Court Justice Barbara Pariente, then in Downtown Chicago at a large white-stocking firm.
Merideth and her family moved back to Clermont in 2005, where she has been happily practicing in her own boutique firm since. Merideth is now the wife of a Presbyterian minister and mother to three boys, ages 3, 9 and 18 (all from the same husband!) She and her husband are the only pastor-attorney married couple that either of them knows.
Merideth loves her life and is proud to be an attorney. Merideth does not identify herself through her accomplishments, but rather in her ability to give of herself to others. She finds value in helping clients navigate the often difficult legal roads of life and business, and forging relationships with them based on mutual caring and respect—relationships she hopes will last a lifetime.
