member spotlight: Meghan kempf

How long have you been a member of the Austin Bar and what is your favorite thing about the organization?

I have been a member since 2014, and I love all of the different ways to meet and engage with other members.

What do you like most about being in the legal field?

Helping to empower clients through an understanding of the law. It is pretty awesome to watch a person or program reach their full potential.

If you weren’t a lawyer what would you be?

That’s a hard one! Probably a photographer, I love to travel and see new places.
