About Megan

Learn Megan’s areas of practice.

I was born and raised in Chicago and obtained my Bachelor of Arts in psychology and criminal justice, summa cum laude, from Indiana University-Bloomington, and my Juris Doctorate, magna cum laude, from Seattle University School of Law.

During law school, I worked as a legal extern for the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office before joining Tamaki Law Offices as an associate attorney in March 2010. I am a member of the Washington State Bar Association and the Washington State Association for Justice.

It is important to me to be active in my community. I have served as the Yakima County Roundtable Chair, member of the Academic Affairs Committee for Heritage University, member of the Judicial Relations Committee for Washington State Association for Justice, and continue to be a member of the Junior League of Yakima. I am also licensed to practice in all Washington state courts and the United States District Court of Eastern Washington.

I have a strong interest in social justice and have volunteered time with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity. Outside of work my hobbies include traveling, yoga, painting, photography, freewriting, theater, and everything to do with the great outdoors, like hiking and gardening.

Wonderful!
I highly recommend Megan Hale if you are in a car accident. I was rear ended with my 2 small children and used Megan Hale to represent my case. She was an outstanding attorney that worked hard to represent my children and myself with minimal work on my part. Megan had great communication and professionalism throughout the claim, she thoroughly explained everything she was doing to make it easy to understand. She showed compassion for our injuries and made sure we were compensated well and received all the medical care we needed to recover. She was very personable and easy to reach. We are extremely pleased with our outcome and are truly grateful for her help, we 100% recommend Megan to use as an accident attorney.

After my not-at-fault car accident I contacted Tamaki Law. Megan Hale took my case and I would absolutely recommend Megan to anyone needing an attorney. When you are vulnerable trust is important. Megan Hale had my back. She was thorough and her skills in dealing with insurance companies lead to a fair settlement. Megan and her staff treated me with kindness and their professionalism resulted in less stress for me personally so that I was able to focus on recovery from my injuries.

Professional and tough
I had a choice to make. There are several injury lawyers in town and I interviewed several. I ended up choosing Tamaki Law and Megan Hale to represent me. Megan was extremely though and professional in her management of my case against an Insurance company. We prevailed because she knows how to present a strong and organized case. All information about or for my case was quickly relayed to me via mail or email. I was always "up to speed" on what was happening over the course of 5 years. Megan is thorough and resilient in the face of adversity which she proved time and time again. Megan never stopped fighting for me, something that I admire greatly about her. Thank you Megan for making the whole process easier. I will certainly not hesitate to call on Ms. Hale again in the future should I need her.

Great Results
Megan is extremely knowledgeable. She clearly advised me on her plan to get me the best result possible. In times when I was anxious, shes eased my mind and reassured me she was taking care of everything. I was involved in a bad collision that was not my fault. Megan not only recovered funds from the other driver's insurance, she also recovered funds from my own insurance. I hope to never be involved in another collision, but if I am, I will definitely call Megan Hale at Tamaki Law.

Excellent Attorney and experience!
I was very pleased with the treatment by both Megan and her assistant Deb. My outcome was far beyond what I expected and I really felt that Megan fought for me the entire time. I am very pleased with my experience with Tamaki Law in general and would recommend Megan to anyone needing a great attorney!

An Exceptional Lawyer
From the moment I entered Tamaki Law and meet with Megan and team I explained my situation and she was very determined to fight my case with her professional guidance. She explained to me what I could expect from my case and the best way to handle the situation, then made sure I was comfortable with how she would proceed. She was very professional, aggressive and hard working with my case, was always informative every step of the way and always asked if I was satisfied before proceeding with the next step of the process. Megan really cared by putting my needs first. In the time that my case lasted, Megan would constantly check in to make sure I was doing alright or to update me when she had new information, which really added a personal touch. If you want a lawyer who will work for you and fight for the best outcome that she believes you deserve then Megan is the one for you. Thank you Megan and team for everything you accomplished for me and my family in this unfortunate situation. You are very caring and give piece of mind with your professionalism!!!

One tough, intelligent, and caring lawyer
From the moment I entered Megan's office, she seemed to only focus on what I wanted from my injury case while providing me with professional guidance. She explained to me what I could probably expect from my case and the best way to handle the situation, then made sure I was comfortable with how we would proceed. She was very professional and aggressive with fighting my case and always asked if I was satisfied before moving on with each step of the process. Megan really cared about how I felt about the case while leading it with her professional knowledge. Over the 1.5 years my case lasted, Megan would constantly check in to make sure I was doing alright or to update me when she had new information, which really added a personal touch. If you want a lawyer who will work for you to get you what you want, Megan is the one for you. Thank you Megan for everything you accomplished for me!
