About Me

I am an everyday person from Green Bay, Wisconsin. My parents are hard workers from farming communities, and I learned about determination from them. I worked my way through college and law school, and identify with working class people and budget-conscious business owners. I give my all to my clients, tell them the truth, and try my best to create lasting relationships even after their cases end.

  • John Andrew Horn

    I have had the pleasure to work with Megan Phillips on several cases over the last three years. I am always amazed by her intelligence, knowledge and perceptiveness. She is able to crystalize fact, law and strategy and then communicate it concisely but pleasantly to her clients and opposing counsel. She is very hard-working, and for example, researches exhaustively before any interaction with opposing counsel. Several times now, I have seen her negotiate a settlement where I was certain none could be had. However, where trial is inevitable, she is a "natural" in the courtroom. Her ease with the process gives her instant credibility with the judge and is very reasssuring to the client. I highly recommend Megan for my clients and have also called upon her personally regarding a family matter.
