Meredith joined the ACLU of South Carolina in January 2022. Prior to joining the team, Meredith worked at a criminal defense law firm in Charleston where she had the privilege of fighting for individuals accused of crimes in local, state, and federal proceedings at the trial, appellate, and post-conviction stages.
As a criminal defense lawyer, Meredith witnessed the inequities in South Carolina’s criminal justice system. She is especially passionate about advocating for the rights of people who have been accused or convicted of crimes in South Carolina.
Before moving to Charleston, Meredith clerked for the Honorable William A. Fletcher of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. She graduated magna cum laude, fourth in her class, from the University of Michigan Law School and earned her undergraduate degree in English and Spanish with a minor in Human Rights at the University of Southern Mississippi.
