Meredith Neely approaches the challenges her clients face from an analytical perspective that is intuitive, creative, and well-grounded in business and legal realities. She has more than a decade of experience in insurance recovery practice, throughout which she has helped her clients to recover billions of dollars in insurance proceeds and to structure their insurance portfolios to protect other valuable assets. She is both a zealous litigator and tactful negotiator, with a track record of success negotiating settlements informally, during mediation, in the context of bankruptcy restructuring, and whenever a reasonable compromise can be reached. When a reasonable compromise is not possible, Meredith has consistently demonstrated the strength of her clients’ positions by successfully litigating claims through trial and appeal.
Meredith also maintains an active pro bono practice, most recently advocating on behalf of a pro se litigant in the Fourth Circuit to revive a time-barred employment discrimination claim. She also represents Central American asylum and withholding of removal applicants in offensive and defensive immigration proceedings.
Meredith received her law degree from the University of Virginia where she was Producer of the 107th Libel Show, an editor of the Virginia Journal of International Law, and an LL.M. Peer Advisor. While an undergraduate at Rutgers University, Meredith was President and Captain of the Rutgers University Mock Trial team, Standards Board and Risk Management Chair of Sigma Delta Tau Sorority, and studied Spanish literature and political science, including at the Universidad Autónoma del Yucatán in Mexico.
