Meghan Sullivan became an attorney because she wanted to understand the many ways the law impacts our lives. “I was managing a retail store at the South Street Seaport in New York and found myself calling my father for legal advice on a weekly basis. I decided I wanted to have a command of the laws that shape decisions we make every day.”
After graduating from law school, Meghan worked as an assistant district attorney. She learned lessons from the District Attorney that continue to shape her values as an attorney: to seek truth and to act ethically. She was drawn to Sullivan, Hayes & Quinn because the values were the same. Not surprisingly, her father, Fred Sullivan, presented some pretty compelling reasons why she should join the firm he co-founded and helped build.
Meghan concentrates in training management in workplace laws, but she has a broad knowledge of all aspects of law. Her passion for her work often comes first: she has worked through many a holiday celebration, and she even went so far as to brief a colleague while in labor with her first child. Meghan strives to understand her clients’ businesses as well as they do: “Effective advice comes after the lawyer understands the business, the jobs performed, the challenges unique to that business, and the pre-existing culture of the organization.”
As Managing Partner of the firm, Meghan feels an enormous responsibility to all of her fellow attorneys and the firm’s support staff. She works to create an environment that exemplifies the best practices she imparts to her clients.
When she’s not working, Meghan devotes her time to her family and when possible, skiing and gardening.
