Attorney Profile

Michael T. Meehan is a member of MeehanLaw, LLC. Although his background includes criminal defense matters and personal injury litigation, he now focuses his practice exclusively on family law. From the firm’s office in Bridgeport, Connecticut, he represents clients in Fairfield County and throughout the state. Mr. Meehan has been admitted to practice before all Connecticut state courts since 1996, and he is additionally admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut.

Many of Mr. Meehan’s family law clients are people who are seeing their marriages come to an end and are thus having to deal with some or all of the divorce-related legal issues of alimony, child support, the division of complex marital assets and financial obligations, and child custody and visitation. He often helps his clients reach an accord on these matters by participating in the negotiation of a comprehensive settlement agreement, but when that is not possible and mediation is not working, he advocates on their behalf before family law judges. With respect to his clients who have already had their marriages legally dissolved, Mr. Meehan assists them in seeking the enforcement of or modifications to existing support and parenting court orders. The excellent manner in which he handles what are often emotional cases that are filled with conflict has not gone unnoticed by his fellow members of the bar, and they have awarded him an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell.

Mr. Meehan’s professional affiliations include the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association and the Greater Bridgeport Bar Association, Inc. He has coached youth sports in Fairfield County, and he is active in the local autism community, having testified before the state legislature in favor of a law that now requires health insurers to provide coverage for certain autistic children.

*AV®, AV Preeminent®, Martindale-Hubbell Distinguished and Martindale-Hubbell Notable are certification marks used under license in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards and policies. Martindale-Hubbell® is the facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the anonymous opinions of members of the bar and the judiciary. Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Rating™ fall into two categories – legal ability and general ethical standards.
