Wendy S. Meadows
Family law has been at the heart of Wendy’s practice since 2005. By 2011, Wendy made partner in her Towson law firm and then in 2018, she left to establish her own practice in Phoenix, Maryland. Wendy recognized a need for a family law office in Northern Baltimore County and desired to be more accessible to her family. Wendy has represented clients across Maryland, including Baltimore County, Harford County, Carroll County, Howard County, Anne Arundel County and Baltimore City.
Wendy prides herself on her ability to guide clients through one of the most difficult situations they may ever have to experience. She is compassionate, yet results-oriented. Wendy concentrates on the specific goals of each client’s case along with a special focus on their life after divorce. She understands that the practice of law, and methods of resolution, are not a “one-size-fits-all” solution. Wendy focuses on helping clients evaluate all aspects of their case, determining the optimal options for resolution and making recommendations about the best approach for their divorce, custody or support matters.
In addition to being an experienced litigator, she is also a skilled mediator and a certified collaborative law attorney. Wendy frequently serves as a court appointed best interest attorney, representing children from as young as eight months to 16 years of age.
Raised in Maryland, Wendy graduated from Atholton High School (1998). She earned her B.A. in English at Franklin & Marshall (F&M) College (2002, cum laude). While attending F&M, she served as Student Body President and Secretary of Chi Omega, helped run the freshman orientation program and ran for two years on the college’s cross country team. Wendy concluded her studies at the Washington College of Law, American University in Washington, D.C. (2005, cum laude). At American, Wendy served as the Managing Editor of the American University Law Review and had the pleasure of teaching high school students through the Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project. In her law career, Wendy served for over 10 years on the Young Lawyers Section of the Maryland State Bar Association (MSBA), acted as Chair of the Baltimore County Young Lawyers Committee and Membership Committee and served several years on the MSBA’s Local and Specialty Bar Committee. In recent years, Wendy partnered the students and faculty at F&M with the One Love Foundation to help raise awareness of relationship violence at her alma mater.
In her free time, Wendy enjoys hanging out with her husband and children, providing online coaching to promote health and wellness, working out, cooking and having leisurely dinners with family and friends.
