Attorney Profile

Meaghan Driscoll represents plaintiffs in a broad range of civil litigation; including civil rights, complex personal injuries, police misconduct, sex abuse, government liability, and employment discrimination. Ms. Driscoll has secured justice for her clients in numerous cases, including representing the estate of Leonard Thomas in a case arising from law enforcement shooting and killing an unarmed black man while he held his four‑year‑old son.
