    Meighan Harmon focuses on complex family law cases involving the distribution of multi-million dollar estates and represents successful business professionals and their spouses from a variety of industries, as well as individuals with multi-generational wealth.

    Meighan is a versatile attorney who provides her clients a wide range of options for resolving their disputes.  She is an experienced litigator who can be fierce in the courtroom, but she is also a trained collaborative lawyer and a family law mediator who can devise creative solutions and amicably settle even the toughest of cases. No two divorces are the same, and Meighan possesses the skills necessary to provide the right solution for each unique situation.

    Not only does Meighan assist her clients in dissolving their marriages, but she also encourages them to be future focused.  She believes divorce offers clients a unique opportunity to build a positive future for themselves, complete with financial and emotional security.  To this end, she provides her clients with the tools necessary to help them construct a solid foundation on which to navigate their new lives.   For Meighan’s clients, divorce can be a spring board to reinventing themselves.
