BWB&O is proud to introduce its employee highlight of the month, Megan B. Pham! Megan is an associate attorney at Bremer Whyte Brown & O’Meara, LLP.
Megan was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area by immigrant parents. While attending high school in San Jose, Megan realized her interest in government and law. Megan received her Bachelor of Arts from the University of California, Berkeley in Legal Studies. She then went on to earn her Juris Doctor from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law (now UC Law San Francisco) with a concentration in Health Law & Policy. While in law school, Megan served as President of the Asian Pacific American Law Student Association and Vice-President of the Hastings Health Law Organization. Megan was nationally recognized in 2022 as champion of the Saul Lefkowitz Trademark Moot Court Competition, where she was also named the Dolores K. Hanna Best Brief winner – which contributed to Hastings Moot Court ranking #1 in the nation that same year.
Megan’s practice covers all aspects of civil defense litigation, focusing primarily on general liability and construction defects matters.
Outside the office, Megan enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, boxing, and rooting for the Miami Heat.
Q: How has your experience at BWB&O helped you in your career development?
A: My experience as a post-bar law clerk at BWB&O provided a seamless transition to my current role as an associate. I was able to draft a wide array of motions and briefs, observe dozens of depositions, and assist with trial prep prior to becoming a licensed attorney.
Q: What is your most significant career accomplishment?
A: I am early on in my career, but I would have to say settling a case one week into being a licensed attorney.
Q: Who would you attribute your success to? Please explain.
A: I undoubtedly owe my success to my family, friends, and the BWB&O Walnut Creek team. I would not be where I am today without their unwavering support. The Walnut Creek team, in particular, has gone to bat for me more times than I can count.
Q: How do you manage your time effectively to maintain a healthy work/life balance? What are some fun ways that you disconnect and recharge?
A: I am intentional with how I spend my work hours. That said, I aim to get difficult tasks out of the way first thing in the morning. Outside of the office, I make an effort to go boxing three times a week – it helps me decompress after the workday.
A special thank you to Megan for sharing her experience on her road to success!
