About Me

Prior to joining the firm, Megan served as a Deputy District Attorney for the City and County of Denver, Colorado for three and a half years. Megan was appointed by Bill Ritter to run a specialized juvenile federal grant program at the District Attorney's Office wherein she gained invaluable experience in family related legal matters. Accordingly, Megan has extensive court experience trying cases as well as researching and arguing pre-trial matters, including complex legal motions. In 2003, Megan joined Gutterman Griffiths PC as a senior associate. In May 2005, Megan became a shareholder. During her time at Gutterman Griffiths PC, Megan has litigated, mediated and settled all types of family law cases, including dissolution cases, paternity actions, post decree cases, contempt citations, high asset cases, high conflict matters, dependency and neglect cases. Megan has also trained as a family law mediator and arbitrator. In 2006, Megan began a lecture series in Colorado on various family law issues.

While in law school, Megan clerked for the Honorable Larry J. Naves Chief presiding Judge in Denver District Court. Megan received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications with an emphasis in Mediation and Conflict Resolution from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
