Board certified in business litigation by The Florida Bar, Meghan is considered an expert in her field, practicing in all phases of civil and business litigation, including performing and analyzing discovery; drafting motions; attending mediations, hearings, and motion sessions; conducting witness depositions; and preparing for trial and appellate proceedings. Meticulous and hardworking, Meghan regularly represents businesses, employers, banks, and landlords in both state and federal court at the trial level and on appeal.
Meghan collaborates with her clients and colleagues to develop the strongest possible strategy to achieve client objectives, whether defensive or offensive, before disputes erupt into expensive and protracted litigation. She has extensive experience representing employers in disputes with former employees, including claims involving theft of trade secrets and violation of non-compete agreements; disabled insureds in claims against disability insurers, lenders in title claims, foreclosures, deficiencies, workouts, and REO matters; and landlords in eviction actions and other lease disputes. She also regularly handles trusts and estate litigation, real estate broker deposits and commission disputes, and Florida Real Estate Commission complaints.
With a passion for sharing her knowledge, Meghan is a contributing author to the 2016 and 2018 supplements to Foreclosures in Florida (Lexis Nexis), which contains information she gained during the Great Recession while working with banks on loan defaults and foreclosure. In addition, she was selected by Lexis Nexis to author their Commercial Mortgage Foreclosure (Florida), Residential Mortgage Foreclosure (Florida), Commercial Eviction (Florida) and Residential Eviction (Florida) Practice Notes. Recently, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Meghan was again selected by Lexis Nexis to author a Florida Practice Alert: Does the Coronavirus Excuse Contract Performance.
Outside the courtroom, Meghan is passionate about the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sarasota County, and currently serves as its incoming chair.
