Megan Neal recognizes the importance of taking the time to listen, absorb every detail, and gather a firm sense of understanding regarding every client matter. “I like being a resource that people can turn to when they are facing a new or unknown issue and helping guide them through it.” Her desire to represent her clients along with her strong advocacy skills comprise Megan’s character as an associate at Hedrick Gardner.

During her time at Wake Forest University School of Law, where she served as an Executive Editor for the Wake Forest Law Review, Megan externed for U.S. Magistrate Judge David S. Cayer at the U.S District Court for the Western District of North Carolina and at the Office Hearings and Appeals at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in DC. Her experience also includes drafting support letters and interacting with clients regarding immigration cases at a law firm in Dallas.

Her interests beyond law include traveling and reading. She also loves a laid back afternoon with family and friends during her down time.
