Megan M. Hunter Esq.
As principal attorney of Hunter & Hunter LLC, Megan represents clients on a host of environmental matters, including citizen suits, administrative appeals, and public records disputes. She has represented community groups, non profit organizations, and individuals before Ohio's Environmental Review Appeals Commission, Ohio's Oil and Gas Commission, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, and in Ohio's district and appellate courts. She has also drafted public comments for community groups and non-profits, helping those most affected by changes in their local environment participate in environmental decision making.
Born and raised on the sandy shores of Eastern North Carolina, Megan came to Northeast Ohio to practice law as a Resident Attorney with Fair Shake Environmental Legal Services. Prior to coming to Ohio, Megan served as the Energy and Natural Resources Law Clerk for the Vermont Office of Legislative Council, where she drafted legislation pertaining to energy and environmental matters, counseled legislators, and worked closely with committees, legislators, community groups, and advocates in developing legislation to meet a diverse set of goals.
During law school, Megan worked for Surfrider Foundation where she wrote appellate and amicus briefs and provided analysis of legislation at the state and federal level on matters involving local land use and zoning, public beach access, stormwater management, local municipal ordinances, and state preemption. In law school, Megan also worked at Vermont Law School's South Royalton Legal Clinic, where she represented clients in family law matters regarding visitation and parenting time and family transition plans. At the Clinic, she also helped clients seek public benefits and appeal denials of government benefits, as well as filed asylum applications for refugees.
Because of her commitment to service, Megan chose to attend Vermont Law School, where she earned both her Juris Doctor, cum laude, and Master of Environmental Law and Policy, magna cum laude. At Vermont Law, she was Senior Managing Editor for the Vermont Journal of Environmental Law. Megan also holds a Master of Science in Applied Economics from Cornell University and a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Policy from Barnard College. Megan is admitted to practice law in Ohio, New York, and the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.
