About Catherine

Learn Catherine’s areas of practice.

Catherine "Catie" Meehan's nursing background comes into play daily as she represents individuals who have been injured at work or in their lives. What sets Catie apart from other lawyers in her field is her previous career as a pediatric nurse at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) for three years before pursuing a law degree. As a licensed registered nurse, Catie has a solid understanding of her clients' medical issues and empathy for what her clients are likely to be experiencing.

Clients also appreciate Catie's open and honest communication and her ability to set realistic outcomes. She advocates fiercely on her clients' behalf because she knows the toll a workers' compensation or personal injury case can take on her clients and their families. Catie helps her clients by answering their questions that range from obtaining medical treatment and weekly compensation checks while out of work to getting partial and total disability benefits. Catie understands the difficulties a personal injury or work accident creates including pain and income loss. She works hard to ensure that clients receive regular workers' compensation weekly checks and uninterrupted medical care.

Catie earned a B.A. in psychology from the University of Notre Dame before heading to MUSC to earn a B.S. in nursing. After years of serving patients in a hospital setting, Catie wanted to help them in a legal setting and decided to become a lawyer. Both medical and legal disciplines serve her well in understanding what victims of accidents go through. While in law school, Catie received the Founder's Award for Professionalism in Advocacy. She also served as Student Works Editor of the Charleston Law Review. Catie has authored published articles for Charleston Law Review that explored human tissue property rights. Her other study covered NFL concussion litigation with a proposal to create a victim relief fund to compensate former NFL players with football-related neurological injuries.

In addition to her law practice, Catie is involved in her community and professional organizations. She currently serves on the Board of Directors of Kids' Chance of South Carolina. This organization provides scholarships and support for college and vocational education to dependents of South Carolina workers catastrophically or fatally injured in work-related accidents. She also serves on the Alumni Board of the Charleston School of Law and the MUSC College of Nursing Board — the latter service keeps her knowledge of nursing trends current, which often aids her in helping her clients. She is a member of Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce, Junior League of Charleston, South Carolina Bar Association, and the bar association's Young Lawyers Division.

Catie and her husband, Jerry, live in Charleston with their two daughters.

Steinberg Law Firm - Catie Meehan and Staff
Very professional, patient, and detailed. Sometimes the response time from the attorney or the administrator was a bit slow. Overall, very professional and accomplished.

Worker’s Comp and Accident Case
I highly recommend Attorney Catie Meehan and and Paralegal, Ms. Karen Nissan. They were available, very helpful and thorough in handling my case from the start. I really didn’t want to hire an attorney but I am so glad I did. The Steinberg Law Firm is the Best Firm to handle your accident case.

Awesome Experience
I contacted Steinberg Law Firm to obtain representation in a Worker’s Compensation filing. Catherine Meehan took on my case which was greatly appreciated! Catherine has extensive medical knowledge which enables her to provide the absolute best representation in injury cases and gives her a significant advantage. She and her paralegal Robin have been easy to access and have been very timely in communication and sending information. I would recommend them to anyone seeking a lawyer to represent them!

Highly Recommend Catie Meehan at the Steinberg Law Firm!!!
After being involved in an automobile accident I wasn’t sure what to do. I contacted several different law firms and finally made my decision to use Catie Meehan at the Steinberg Law Firm. Catie and her paralegal Karen Nissen took charge of a very stressful situation and let us focus on our health and our family. Catie and Karen were very informative about how the process would work, what we needed to do, and what we shouldn’t be expected to do. It was a great feeling knowing that we had such an awesome team working directly for our needs and our best interests. Karen has an eye for detail and will make sure that every “i” is dotted and “t” is crossed! The best thing to come out of our accident was hiring Catie and the Steinberg Law Firm!

Review for Mrs. Meehan & Ms. Nissen
Catie was very professional throughout the duration of my case. She took the time to explain how things would unfold throughout. Catie’s paralegal, Karen was very organized. She explained everything she sent to me, she let me know when and why things were happening. Karen answered any questions I had and also added a personal touch to her correspondences.

Best and Brightest
I’ve been working the Catherine for several months on an injury case and she has been the best lawyer I’ve ever worked with, she responds immediately morning noon or night, she’s well versed on every topic I come to her to discuss and makes the legal speak easy to understand. She’s been a blessing in this trying time.

THIS IS WHO YOU WANT TO HIRE
Wow, all I can say is that Catie and her paralegal Karen are TOP NOTCH. I had to switch to their firm in the middle of a car wreck case where I broken my arm and totaled my car AT NO FAULT of my own. The former firm I was using was absolutely HORRIBLE compared to the professionalism and care I received from Steinburg. They are truly exceptional at what they do, and VERY organized. I couldn't have asked for a better team to assist me. You will receive copies of all documents letters in the mail and cd copies of whatever they want you to have (without asking). They were able to get win my case substantially higher than what the previous firm was going to settle for (without even covering the medical bills). Don't think twice and hire this team.
