Megan Zavieh is the creator of The Playbook: The California Bar Discipline System Practice Guide. Her practice is 100% focused on California State Bar defense. Megan believes that no attorney should face the discipline system without an ally, and that ally should not judge or use fear to motivate her client.
Megan is immersed in the world of legal ethics. She has recently served on the board of the Association of Discipline Defense Counsel (a trade association of state bar defense lawyers in California), is a member of the Association of Professional Responsibility Lawyers (a national organization of ethics lawyers), and the Immediate Past Chair of the Solo and Small Firm Section of the State Bar of California. Megan writes for Lawyerist and Attorney at Work on ethics issues.
Megan earned her J.D. from the University of California at Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall) in 1999, graduating Order of the Coif. After clerking for the Honorable Evan J. Wallach at the U.S. Court of International Trade in New York, she went on to practice securities litigation at three top firms in the New York area.
Megan's practice focuses on California State Bar defense and general ethics. She represents lawyers at all stages of State Bar investigation; her work includes drafting responses to letters of investigation, negotiating settlements with the State Bar, negotiating entry into the Lawyers Assistance Program/Alternate Discipline Program for attorneys suffering from addiction or mental illness, trying cases before the State Bar Court, and assisting in probation compliance for attorneys who have been sanctioned. She also works as associated counsel with self-represented attorneys facing disciplinary charges -- a unique way to get assistance through the discipline system without the cost of full scope representation. Attorneys retain her to prepare document productions and written responses to the Office of the Chief Trial Counsel and the State Bar Court.
