Brook Meakins, Attorney

Brook is a passionate advocate for her clients and is committed to seeking creative resolutions that are uniquely tailored to match client goals.  She spends her days in court, and otherwise working with her team to ensure that all Meakins Law clients get the same attentive, specialized care that the firm quickly became known for. In addition to her family law practice, Brook is very involved in environmental climate-change advocacy work. In both realms she is a fierce champion of the rights of others, and it is this attribute that drives her success as an attorney and sets the tone for the entire firm. She devotes the same vibrant energy and attention to all of her clients, whether they are island nations affected by climate change or single fathers seeking greater involvement in their children’s lives. 

Brook is fully committed to bringing the needs and desires of the client to the forefront of every discussion, never allowing the complexity of the law to hamper communication. Her gift for balancing an empathetic, resolution-focused mindset with an unflinching commitment to a just outcome is what differentiates her from her peers. Brook’s clients sense her dedication; her results speak for themselves. She is a graduate of the University of Oregon School of Law and hails from Eugene, Oregon. When she and her husband eventually found their way down to the Bay Area, they fell in love with the quality of life and decided to make it their home.
