Meet Meg

Attorney. Technologist. Freelance Web Designer.   Cybersecurity Aficionado. Geek. Speaks Fluent Tech and Legalese.


High-tech law is Megan’s passion. As a technologist with a background in computers, technology and cybersecurity, it is her goal to help other technologists understand confusing legal topics. As a lawyer, it is also Megan's goal to bridge the gap between complex tech topics and the legal community.


Megan is a published author on various cyberlaw topics, and she has been featured in speaking engagements in the greater Pittsburgh area. Megan was the driving force behind Elliott & Davis, PC's Pittsburgh Cyberlaw practice and blog. She continues to write for her own blog, technoLAWgical , which covers various topics in cyberlaw, entrepreneurship, intellectual property, and other high-tech related issues.
