Paula Meyer represents clients in product liability and environmental matters, including defending automobile, chemical and medical device manufacturers.

Prior to joining Bowman and Brooke, Paula advised clients in the areas of medical malpractice, personal injury and workers’ compensation. She has extensive experience drafting legal memoranda and dispositive motions as well as discovery requests and responses. Paula has taken and defended 150 expert depositions and has represented workers’ compensation plaintiffs in the courtroom. She also has experience representing clients in multidistrict litigation and drafting appellate briefs.

Paula's thorough understanding of appellate rules and procedures paired with her extensive research and writing background allows her to navigate through all phases of complex litigation. Additionally, she uses her understanding of workers' compensation law to advise her clients on regulatory compliance and strategies to minimize the risk of liability.
