Catie's dual passions for law and medicine led her to the Steinberg Law Firm, where attorneys work with individuals who have been injured at work or in their daily lives.

FULL BIO

Catherine "Catie" Meehan's nursing background comes into play daily as she represents individuals who have been injured at work or in their lives. What sets Catie apart from other lawyers in her field is her previous career as a pediatric nurse at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) for three years before pursuing a law degree. As a licensed registered nurse, Catie has a solid understanding of her clients' medical issues and empathy for what her clients are likely to be experiencing.

Clients also appreciate Catie's open and honest communication and her ability to set realistic outcomes. She advocates fiercely on her clients' behalf because she knows the toll a workers' compensation or personal injury case can take on her clients and their families. Catie helps her clients by answering their questions that range from obtaining medical treatment and weekly compensation checks while out of work to getting partial and total disability benefits. Catie understands the difficulties a personal injury or work accident creates including pain and income loss. She works hard to ensure that clients receive regular workers' compensation weekly checks and uninterrupted medical care.

Catie earned a B.A. in psychology from the University of Notre Dame before heading to MUSC to earn a B.S. in nursing. After years of serving patients in a hospital setting, Catie wanted to help them in a legal setting and decided to become a lawyer. Both medical and legal disciplines serve her well in understanding what victims of accidents go through. While in law school, Catie received the Founder's Award for Professionalism in Advocacy. She also served as Student Works Editor of the Charleston Law Review. Catie has authored published articles for Charleston Law Review that explored human tissue property rights. Her other study covered NFL concussion litigation with a proposal to create a victim relief fund to compensate former NFL players with football-related neurological injuries.

In addition to her law practice, Catie is involved in her community and professional organizations. She currently serves on the Board of Directors of Kids' Chance of South Carolina. This organization provides scholarships and support for college and vocational education to dependents of South Carolina workers catastrophically or fatally injured in work-related accidents. She also serves on the Alumni Board of the Charleston School of Law and the MUSC College of Nursing Board — the latter service keeps her knowledge of nursing trends current, which often aids her in helping her clients. She is a member of Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce, Junior League of Charleston, South Carolina Bar Association, and the bar association's Young Lawyers Division.

Catie and her husband, Jerry, live in Charleston with their two daughters.

Karen Nissen and Catie Meehan have been professional and efficient in helping us while enduring the difficulties associated with the impact of my accident on February 28, 2020.

I live in NYC, but my accident occurred in Charleston so it required finding someone from a distance.

Catie and Karen were very kind and easy to work with. They explained everything clearly and kept me updated throughout the process. It's not a fun process, but they did make it as painless as possible. Thank you both!

Cathryn Meehan did a great job settling my case.

She is honest and very knowledgeable in the law dealing with workers comp injuries. Any time I had a concern, she typically responded in less than 24 hours. In most cases on the same day. What is particularly noteworthy, is her ability to multitask as a mother and a lawyer while being infected with COVID 19. I in no way would have been able to accomplish what she did. Settlement was fair and honest. Honesty is so important if an individual wants to remain worry free. If you are seeking a great attorney and if she will agree to take your case, you will be represented properly as she does her homework quite well!
