Shawn B Meador has been practicing law since 1983 and has been a
shareholder in the firm Woodburn and Wedge since 1989. A substantial
portion of his practice is devoted to the area of family law, including
matters such as divorce, child custody, spousal support, pre- and
post-nuptial agreements and related matters.
Mr. Meador believes that no two family law cases are exactly the same
and that there is no single way in which every case should be handled.
In most cases, however, he believes it is important to work diligently
with the client to obtain a prompt and fair settlement. If a fair
settlement cannot be achieved, he thoroughly and diligently prepares to
litigate and try the case. His general trial experience in other areas
of the law enhances his ability to try cases effectively when necessary.
Mr. Meador works with several associate attorneys to provide the best
possible service to clients at the most reasonable cost.
In addition to his family law practice, Mr. Meador practices in the
area of general civil litigation in both state and federal courts. He
has litigated cases in areas such as insurance coverage, personal injury
defense, contract disputes, employment discrimination and F.E.L.A.
matters. He has briefed and argued appeals in the Nevada Supreme Court
and Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
