Megan Zavieh


Megan Zavieh focuses her practice exclusively on attorney ethics, representing attorneys facing State Bar disciplinary action, providing guidance to practicing attorneys, podcasting, and writing extensively.

Megan is the creator and principle author of The Playbook: The California Bar Discipline System Practice Guide, a digital product for self-represented lawyers facing State Bar discipline action.

Megan has always done things her own way, and her legal career has been no different. After a Federal clerkship and New York BigLaw career, she transitioned to supporting attorneys facing difficult professional times. She found her passion and never looked back.

She believes that her mission to support lawyers can be fulfilled in countless innovative ways, and she is constantly striving to develop new tools to make defending and avoiding State Bar complaints easier and less costly. To that end, she created The Playbook, podcasts at Lawyers Gone Ethical on issues related to legal ethics and State Bar defense, and offers assistance to self-represented lawyers to guide them through the discipline process.

Megan is a California native, and she has practiced law in New York, New Jersey, California, and Georgia. Her solo practice really took flight while living in Sydney, Australia, and she recently completed a four week tour of Europe with her family while maintaining her practice. Physical location has never been a boundary to her work.
