Megan Zavieh


Megan saves lawyers’ careers. She defends lawyers before the State Bar of California in disciplinary investigations and proceedings.

Megan 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. Most recently she launched The Playbook: The California Bar Discipline System Practice Guide, a membership website for lawyers defending themselves on disciplinary charges. The Playbook is the first of its kind support tool for lawyers facing discipline. It features a practice guide, online community, and library of sample court filings not otherwise available online.

Megan has always done things her own way, in both her personal and professional lives. Her self-designed educational path led her to graduation from UC Berkeley’s Boalt Hall School of Law (Order of the Coif) at age 21. She clerked at the US Court of International Trade in New York and went on to practice securities litigation in three large firms in New York. Then she found her passion in representing lawyers and never looked back.

A California native, Megan was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. She is admitted to practice in California, New York, New Jersey, and Georgia, and she practiced remotely from Sydney, Australia while living there in 2010-2011. Physical location has never been a boundary to her practice.
