Megan McCarthy joins the firm as a partner in its Montgomery office.

She primarily handles litigation in the areas of auto accident defense, insurance defense, insurance bad faith, construction law, and personal injury defense. Megan also handles insurance coverage issues that arise before and after a lawsuit is filed.

Megan McCarthy is an experienced litigator. Over the last 16 years, she has taken over 1,500 depositions and tried over 45 jury trials and 120 bench trials to verdict in a number of different types of venues across the State of Alabama. Many of these verdicts resulted in defense verdicts or verdicts significantly below the amount offered prior to trial.

Because of her strong presence in the courtroom, Megan was selected as a “Rising Star” in both Alabama and the Mid-South.
