Megan Rachel

Partner

Megan Rachel joined Albin Roach in 2018 where she practices exclusively in the
firms Family Law Section.

Megan has 27 years of experience and handles cases in all areas of family law
including Divorce, Collaborative Divorce, complex property division, child
custody, modification of child custody, grandparent’s rights and family violence
issues including both obtaining protective orders and defending against them.
With her 27 years of experience, Megan has come to understand the uncertainty
and apprehension an individual may suffer when facing a potential divorce or other
family law issue. During these difficult times when emotions are often running
high and people are often overcome with fear, frustrations and sometimes anger,
Megan approaches her clients and their situations with the compassion and the
personal attention they need and deserve. As a skilled negotiator, Megan works
with her clients to identify all possible settlement options and works diligently to secure agreements that can avoid the necessity of an expensive trial. However, in
the end if a trial is what is needed, Megan is also a skilled litigator and she was
named as one of 10 best female attorneys by the American Institute of Family Law
Attorneys.

When not practicing family law, Ms. Rachel participates in numerous professional
organizations. She is a member of the Curt B. Henderson Inn of Court, the Collin
County Bar Association, the Collaborative Law Alliance of Collin County, The
Collin County Bench Bar Foundation—fellow, The Collin County Bar
Association, and the Frisco Bar Association.

Outside of work, Megan likes to travel with her husband and, when they are
available, her two children.
