Megan is an attorney in the Toxic Torts Section where she is part of the perfluorinated chemicals or PFC litigation. She represents water systems whose water supply has been contaminated by industrial discharge of PFCs. Megan joined Beasley Allen Law Firm in July 2015 as an attorney in our Mass Torts Section.
Before moving to the Toxic Torts Section, Megan handled cases involving dangerous drugs and defective medical devices, specifically, cases involving Viagra, which has been connected to an increased risk for the development of melanoma; Risperdal, which has been shown to cause gynecomastia, a condition in which boys develop female breasts; Type 2 diabetes drugs Byetta, Januvia, Janumet and Victoza, which have been linked to pancreatic cancer; and Fosamax, which has been linked to bone fractures.
She has also worked on cases related to the use of a surgical tool called the power morcellator. Power morcellators are surgical tools fitted with a tube-like blade that shreds uterine fibroids or entire uteruses inside the uterine cavity and removes them through a small incision in the abdomen. The devices have been favored over open surgeries by many doctors because they are less invasive, produce less scar tissue and offer shorter recovery. However, doctors have discovered that power morcellation can spread cancerous tissue throughout the abdominal cavity, seeding new cancer growth and making the disease more difficult to treat. Other drugs/devices cases Megan worked on included Invokana, IVC Filters, Bair Huggers, Taxotere and Physiomesh.
Megan, a member of the Alabama State Bar, attended Texas State University, graduating cum laude with her B.A. in psychology with a minor in forensic psychology in 2007.
She attended Faulkner University’s Thomas Goode Jones School of Law, earning her J.D. in 2014. While at Faulkner, she worked in the school’s Mediation Clinic. During law school, she interned with her father at the Law Office of Allen Moore. His practice focused on personal injury, and she says his work inspired her to follow in his footsteps to become an attorney.
Megan met her husband, Noah Robinson, while in law school. He works as vice president for a Montgomery manufacturing company.
