My name is Megan Russo, though some may remember me as Megan Searls. I have worked in Jacksonville as a civil trial attorney since 2004, handling cases involving personal injury, wrongful death, premises liability, homeowners’ insurance disputes, and other first party claims.

I bring to mediation a unique perspective of having litigated on behalf of Plaintiffs and Defendants. The first five years of my career was with a defense firm, where I was part of a trial team that won several defense verdicts. I also had the honor of arguing (successfully) before the First District Court of Appeals on behalf of an insurance company. In 2009, I joined a large plaintiff’s firm and began representing individuals. I have tried numerous cases on behalf of plaintiffs, though I take the most pride in a punitive damages verdict obtained against a drunk driver and two seven figure verdicts as part of a team mentored by the late Michelline Haynes Ruth.

When you mediate with me, expect efficiency, competency and authenticity. I will respect you and your clients and always seek to reach your goals, not mine. I appreciate the opportunity to help you resolve cases.
