Megan Harpe

Megan Harpe is a dedicated and passionate attorney with extensive experience in advocacy and litigation. An alumnus of Loyola University Maryland, Megan’s Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Sociology set the foundation for her career in law, starting as a legal assistant at a prominent boutique law firm in Maryland, where she honed her skills in guardianship cases.

Megan’s commitment to social justice and the environment is evident through her active involvement in programs and initiatives aimed at serving underrepresented communities, including her work with Greenpeace. Seeking to deepen her legal expertise, she pursued a law degree at the University of Illinois College of Law. Graduating Cum Laude, she excelled in the Family Advocacy Clinic, where she was chosen to represent a minor child in a termination of parental rights trial. This experience marked the beginning of her dedication to advocating for children.

Post law school, Megan joined Legal Aid, focusing her work on foster children adjudicated dependent under Chapter 39 of the Florida Statutes. In this role, she tirelessly advocated for the state’s most vulnerable population, engaging in dependency trials and termination of parental rights trials. Her work with the State Attorney’s Office, Guardian Ad Litem’s Office, and Attorney General’s Office was instrumental in representing the express interests of minor children through traumatic events.

Megan’s expertise extended into juvenile delinquency, where she fought for sentences that recognized and respected the individual circumstances and traumas of her clients. This advocacy naturally transitioned into family law, where she now applies the skills and empathy she developed working with children to assist her clients and their families. She prides herself on being relatable, client-centered, and collaborative, all while maintaining staunch advocacy for her clients’ needs.

When Megan isn’t advocating for clients, she enjoys travel, working out on her Peloton, and playing with her Boston Terrier, Bam.
