Whether she is advocating the invalidity of a will or defending a developer against alleged violations of restrictive covenants, Meg strives to counsel each of her clients on the costs, risks, and intricacies associated with litigation to ensure that each of her client's goals is exceeded. As a member of Odin, Feldman & Pittleman's litigation practice group, Meg has developed a diverse civil practice that encompasses appellate work, land use litigation, employment disputes, trade secrets litigation, shareholder disputes, complex business litigation, and trust and estate litigation. She represents corporate and individual clients in matters across Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia.

Prior to joining Odin, Feldman & Pittleman, P.C., Meg clerked for the Honorable Jan L. Brodie at Fairfax County Circuit Court for two years. There she obtained the unique opportunity to not only analyze countless aspects of Virginia law with her colleagues, but also to witness the highs and lows of litigation. Meg routinely uses this experience to counsel to her clients on all possible outcomes.

Beyond the courtroom, Meg enjoys spending time with her husband and their two young boys in Arlington, VA. She is also active with her alma mater, Davidson College, serving as an Ambassador for Davidson's Annual Fund.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
