Meghan M. Sweeney focuses her practice in the area of family and matrimonial law, representing clients statewide in matters involving divorce, property division, alimony, child support, child custody, and parenting access, both in litigation and in the non-adversarial processes of collaborative divorce and mediation. She has trial and mediation experience related to complex marital assets and post judgment modification of financial and custody orders.

As part of her practice, Meghan analyzes complex compensation structures of self-employed business owners and high-income earners, including retirement and executive compensation awards and financial support awards related thereto. She identifies and examines the transfer of assets pursuant to a marital dissolution and coordinates the valuation of marital assets, including family businesses, trusts, and foreign real estate through accountants, appraisers, and other area-specific attorneys. Meghan routinely works with mental health professionals to address and manage issues related to mental health, substance abuse, and parenting arrangements.

Meghan’s practice includes collaborative divorce and divorce mediation, which allows her to offer individuals a private, non-adversarial alternative for resolving divorce and other family disputes.

Meghan began her career in the family law group at Rome McGuigan, P.C., in Hartford. Prior to joining Ruel Ruel Goings & Britt, Meghan litigated matrimonial cases at Pullman & Comley in Fairfield County.
