About Attorney Meghan Smith
I focus my practice on real estate and business law. I have extensive experience handling commercial and residential real estate transactions and refinancing, commercial and residential landlord/tenant matters, business formation, and contract drafting, review, and negotiation. I also negotiate purchases and sales of business assets, membership interests and stocks, prepare buy-sell agreements for business owners, and assist clients in transitioning businesses to the next generation. My skill in these transactions is enhanced by my pre-law school years as a paralegal and legal assistant and more than ten years of foreclosure and business litigation.
I received a BA in Business Management from Gettysburg College, then returned to the northeast to attend Western New England University School of Law, where I received my JD.
While at WNE, I participated in the Philip C. Jessup International Moot Court Team and received the CALI Excellence for the Future Award. I am licensed to practice in Connecticut and am a member of the Connecticut Bar Association and the Tolland County Bar Association. In 2012 I received the Statesman Award from the Greater Hartford Jaycees for extraordinary dedication and service, and in 2020, I was honored to be named to the Hartford Business Journal’s “40 Under 40”
I believe in giving back, and as the proud wife of a US Navy Veteran, I’m honored to volunteer my time to the New England Veterans Chamber of Commerce as a Board Member, and in defending local Veterans in eviction cases through the Connecticut Veterans Legal Center. I also serve on the New England Veterans Chamber of Commerce and volunteer at my children’s school.
When I am not working on my clients’ legal matters, you can find me and my husband and our daughters hiking, golfing, or otherwise enjoying being outdoors.
