Meagan E. Garland

Meagan E. Garland was highlighted as a rising attorney by Color magazine during Women’s History Month 2021. A partner in the San Diego, CA, office of Duane Morris LLP, she practices employment law. She is a member of the Steering Committee and programming chair of the Women’s Impact Network for Success Inclusion Committee, and co-chair of the Recruiting Committee in the firm’s San Diego office.


Cutting-Edge Practice: Garland, a partner at Duane Morris, says her legal practice can be found “at the intersection of fashion, beauty, and Black girl magic.” Representative Clients: Top fashion and beauty brands, fashion and beauty start-ups, retail stores, and industry-related trade associations. Aspiration: “There are not a lot of Black women represented in the boardrooms of fashion and beauty corporations. I want to be an influencer in that space.” How She Describes Her Own Fashion Sense: “A bright peacock among a sea of gray and navy suits.” Recent Work: Garland has enjoyed working with cosmetology schools that want to focus on diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging by, among other initiatives, expanding their core curricula to include training related to textured hair.
