As a native Oregonian I truly understand and appreciate the area in which my clients live and work.

My practice is primarily comprised of representing parents or children in cases where the State removes a child from his or her parents care.  In this area, an attorney must be able to work with parents, other attorneys as well as Department of Human Services caseworkers.  I often state that my job in this area is half lawyering and half social work.  In this area, I have been able to reach positive outcomes for the majority of my clients which include dismissal in the early stages of the case, a quick return home of the child if the State felt that a removal from the parents' care was necessary or fighting the strong arm of the State.

In addition to my work in juvenile law, I also practice in the areas of family law, criminal defense and adoptions.

Regardless of the reason why I represent you, I am dedicated to providing competent, compassionate, and zealous advocacy on your behalf.

Outside of the practice of law, I am a novice gardner, a prolific knitter and a proud dog owner.

Hard-working, energetic, patient
Meghan is a great attorney. She's highly knowledgeable in family law and she patiently explained the law until I was satisfied that all my questions had been answered. She provided a complete picture of my legal options so that I could make informed choices regarding my legal future which helped me make the best of a terrible legal situation. She also brought a lot of energy to the courtroom which helped me feel that my interests were being fully represented.
