Meagan A. Garcia was born in Odessa, but raised in McAllen, Texas, where she attended McAllen Memorial High School. There she lettered all four years on the women’s golf team.
Growing up along the Texas-Mexico border, Meagan learned at a very young age about justice and injustice in majority-minority communities. She knew that she needed to be a voice for the people around her, one of the main reasons Meagan decided to pursue a degree in law.
While attending Texas Tech University, Meagan served as President of a national catholic service organization and worked at the University in the admission office while obtaining a degree in International Economics and a minor in Spanish.
After graduating from Texas Tech University, Meagan attended Texas Southern – Thurgood Marshall School of Law in Houston, Texas. During law school Meagan was an associate editor for the Thurgood Marshall Law Journal, a part of the Thurgood Marshall Federal Bar Association Moot Court, a member of the Hispanic Law Student Association, and the Mexican American Bar Association of Houston. Additionally, Meagan worked as a student attorney in the family and immigration law clinic during her second and third year of law school.
On the weekends you can find Meagan enjoying a good book, or at a local vinyl record store growing her already 2000 plus record collection.
