Megan Effner

Slotegraaf Niehoff PC - Meet the Team - Megan Effner
Megan is an associate on our team and practices in civil litigation. Megan initially began her legal career practicing insurance defense litigation but found herself missing the personal connections with individuals and businesses and the satisfaction of helping clients.

Because Megan is the first attorney in her family, she understands that the legal process can be confusing and complicated. Megan believes communication and understanding are key throughout the entire legal process.

Megan grew up in Terre Haute, Indiana where she was named valedictorian of her graduating class at Indiana State University. While attending Indiana University Maurer School of Law, Megan enjoyed living in Bloomington, Indiana so much that she has remained since graduating law school. During her time in law school, Megan worked for Magistrate Judge Dinsmore in the Southern District of Indiana and has been involved in the Bloomington legal community since 2017.

When Megan is not in the office, she enjoys working puzzles and playing board games with friends (although she admits that sometimes she gets a bit too competitive), and she cherishes time spent with her family back in Terre Haute.
