Biography

Megan was born and raised in Moncks Corner, South Carolina, a small town about 30 miles north of Charleston.

While attending the Charleston School of Law, Megan served as a volunteer guardian ad litem, advocating for the best interests of children in abuse and neglect cases. She also had clerkships with the Charleston County Family Court and a local family law firm.

When Megan is not practicing law, she is attempting new recipes, trying to become a runner, singing loudly and offkey, and reading. Megan and her husband live in Ravenel with their children and cat.

Megan exclusively practices family law, representing residents of Charleston, Berkeley, Dorchester, and Horry counties.

Providing efficient representation for her clients is the foundation of Ms. Dell's practice. She offers exceptional service that is both affordable and effective, and is committed to pursuing fairness and integrity while advocating for your interests.

Legal Answers
16 Questions Answered
Q. My husband and I wanted to adopt an infant. We had an infant placed in our home through DSS in 2020.
A: Until the mother's parental rights are terminated, she remains the child's legal parent. If the child is placed with you by DSS, then DSS has custody of the child. However, in many situations, you do not have to wait for DSS to file a TPR action; instead, you could file a private action to TPR and adopt with the help of your own attorney.
Q. What is there to do after co parent has already been found in contempt & lost primary custody but still violating order?
A: The only available remedies for contempt are imprisonment (for a period of up to 1 year), a fine (of up to $1500), and/or community service. However, in determining whether a parent should have custody of a child, the Family Court often considers whether each parent has complied with court orders, but that is only part of the analysis. If you wish to have primary physical and legal custody of your child, you could pursue an action to modify the existing order, but you should seek the advice of an experienced family law attorney before moving forward.
Q. What is the best type of attorney for a DSS/CPS case? Family law seems too broad...
A: You can ask any attorney you consult with about how much experience they have defending DSS cases.
