Attorneys

Megan McKennon

Practice Areas

  • Commercial/Business Litigation
  • Construction Litigation

While she admits a career in law can be challenging, Megan’s always been ready to meet those challenges head on. Megan has a strong work ethic and has learned to be tough, but caring.  Her competitive background assisted her in pursuing a legal career.   Since graduating from law school, she has begun practicing commercial, business, and construction litigation.

Despite being a cheerleader in college, Megan found she was still shy around people she didn’t know very well. But she figured out a way to use that to her advantage. She made it a point to press on and get to know new acquaintances. Today, she uses that self-taught skill in her law practice, taking the time to get to know a new client and understand their needs and objectives. Megan’s pro bono work with the economically disadvantaged through the Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program is another instance where she leans in and becomes immersed in new situations. Whatever the case, taking on challenges and forging new relationships has become a favorite part of her role as an attorney.

Megan is originally from the Austin area, and in her free time, she enjoys spending time exploring Dallas.
