Meagan Talafuse earned her B.S. in Communications from the University of Texas at Austin in 2006. After receiving her undergraduate degree, she worked as a legal assistant at Fulbright & Jaworski in Dallas, gaining valuable experience in the areas of pharmaceutical litigation and mass torts. During that time, she also volunteered for the Dallas Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for children, helping abused and neglected Texas children get out of foster care and into safe, permanent homes.
With ambitions to become a stronger advocate for the most vulnerable members of the community, she attended St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio, Texas. Throughout law school, she worked multiple jobs, seized every internship opportunity, traveled the world and volunteered at legal clinics.
Meagan started as a law clerk with the Phipps team during her second year of law school, working with farmer clients and assisting the firm’s retained experts in the development of individual damage models in the Bayer Genetically Modified Rice Litigation. After receiving her J.D., she was hired as an associate at PHIPPS ANDERSON DEACON LLP. Meagan quickly expanded her practice experience in a wide variety of areas, including: mass torts, personal injury, medical malpractice, commercial litigation, agricultural law, product liability, and appellate law.
Meagan also enjoys attending concerts, getting lost in museums, riding her bike and spending time with her dogs.
