Megan A. Lucey
Megan A. Lucey received her Bachelor’s of Science in Business Management from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Ms. Lucey then attended University of the Pacific-McGeorge School of Law where she specialized in Trial Advocacy, and obtained her Juris Doctorate in 2009. During law school, Ms. Lucey advocated for justice with the Sacramento District Attorney’s office in their Domestic Violence, Juvenile and Minor Crimes divisions. Ms. Lucey was also trained as a Court Appointed Special Advocate and was the voice for the often voiceless children in the family law court system. Ms. Lucey was admitted to the California State Bar, and the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of California in 2009. She was then hired as a litigation attorney with Prout LeVangie, LLP, focusing primarily on employment litigation and corporate counseling. After practicing law for several years in California, Ms. Lucey moved to Reno, Nevada and was admitted to the Nevada State Bar and the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada in 2013, where she has exclusively practiced family law since. She is excited to be continuing the practice of family law and to join the Berkich Family Law team.
Our family is all from out of state, but we needed representation for an estate matter in Nevada. Lauren offered to accept the role after carefully explaining that the work we needed was outside her specialty area. We accepted this situation.
Our hope and goal was to find an attorney who would be a good communicator and gather information that our family needed in order to make important decisions. Lauren met all our hopes in this matter. Her communications were timely and very clear.
She helped us make some important decisions, including the decision to hire an attorney to replace her, with an attorney who specializes in our type of case.
Lauren filled the role we needed and we recommend her highly when representation is needed that will benefit from good communication and clarity.
This is by far one of the best practices in Reno. Lauren has a tremendous amount of experience and is willing to fight to make everything 100% fair. She has an extraordinary amount of knowledge in the area she practices and can speak to you on a level that is easy to understand. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking divorce or family law issues.
I was first drawn to Lauren due to her ability to do collaborative and uncontested divorces. My husband at the time told me that we should get divorced, so I thought this would be a fairly simple process where we could all work together to part paths amicably. I was just doing as he desired. However, things quickly turned ugly, but Lauren was still able to represent me. She kept me focused on the prize: freedom from my abuser. She and her staff worked with urgency to ensure my freedom as soon as possible. I highly recommend Lauren and Berkich Family Law. Divorce is never a fun process, but through Lauren’s professionalism, dedication, and wisdom, I was able to escape much quicker than many thought possible.
I first contacted Lauren for help with a domestic violence situation. Her receptionist immediately assisted me and Lauren was able to see me the next day, which was Nevada Day. I decided I would proceed with filing for a divorce and serve him at the TPO hearing. The district court set the TPO hearing only a week from when the initial protection order was filed. Lauren worked quickly to make sure the paper work was in order and served at the TPO hearing. Lauren worked hard on my case, I often felt as if I was her only client. She was professional, honest, dedicated, and sympathetic to my situation. I felt completely comfortable with not only Lauren but her staff as well. Going through family court, a domestic violence situation, and a divorce is extremely difficult. Having Lauren and her staff to handle my case helped me get through a challenging time in my life. I would recommend Berkich Family Law to anyone who needs a Family Law Attorney. I just cannot say enough about Lauren and her staff, and thank her for taking my case and getting me through this divorce so quickly.
