138 Cozen O’Connor Attorneys Named to the Best Lawyers in America

Best Lawyers selected 138 Cozen O’Connor lawyers from 21 of the firm’s national offices for inclusion in the 2020 edition of The Best Lawyers in America.

Megan passionately fights for her client’s rights and liberties by providing reliable guidance and representation in all matters involving both civil and criminal law, whether her client is a civil litigant, a witness or a target of an investigation, or a defendant charged with a criminal offense. Megan has also counseled victims of criminal offenses on how to navigate the legal system and exercise their rights under the law. She has successfully represented individuals and companies under scrutiny for a wide range of criminal activity including multi-million dollar frauds, high profile public corruption, Title 21 violations, counterfeiting, identity theft, and money laundering. Megan is also committed to defending the rights of the indigent and regularly represents criminal defendants through pro bono referrals or court appointments.

Beyond her criminal practice, Megan regularly represents clients in heavily regulated areas such as telehealth, pharmaceutical, professional licensing, nonprofit, and state and local government. The combination of her criminal and commercial experience representing clients in a wide cross-section of industries provides her with the tools and foresight needed to work with clients in all areas of compliance to successfully avoid regulatory infractions, future litigation, and/or potential civil or criminal penalties.

Megan frequently speaks about criminal defense and government investigations. She serves on the planning committee for the annual white collar conference held by the Pennsylvania Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and has also served as a panelist at local law schools, for the American Bar Association and at continuing legal education conferences. In addition, Megan has been recognized by Pennsylvania Super Lawyers as a Rising Star in the area of White Collar Criminal Defense for the past four consecutive years. She has also been recognized by The Legal Intelligencer as a Lawyer on the Fast Track and has been named in Philadelphia Business Journal's 40 under 40.  

Prior to joining the firm, Megan served as a judicial law clerk to the Chief Judge of the Seventh Judicial Circuit in Maryland.

Megan earned her undergraduate degree, magna cum laude, from Ithaca College in 2003 and her law degree from American University, Washington College of Law in 2006.
