Meghan Phillips primarily handles family and humanitarian immigration, Special Immigrant Juvenile custody, and removal defense cases.
Meghan is from an American military family, and after her father’s deployment to Iraq, she developed a desire to one day work in diplomacy and international relations. To pursue this calling, she attended the University of Notre Dame where she majored in Political Science and French and spent one year as an exchange student at Sciences-Po in Paris, France.
After graduating cum laude in 2011, she worked with the Victim/Witness Division of Ohio’s Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office. In this role, she would travel to area hospitals to meet survivors of sexual assault to provide them with support and information during their forensic exams. She also volunteered with the Miami Valley’s Catholic Social Services’ Refugee Resettlement division.
This work led to the realization that her abstract hope to work in foreign policy needed concrete knowledge that only an education in law could provide. She decided to pursue her law degree at William and Mary in Virginia, and focused her legal studies on international law, immigration, and human rights.
