This episode is presented by The United States Air Force Judge Advocate General's Corp.

The Supreme Court's decision to extend the right to marry to same-sex couples advanced civil rights last month, but also lawyers' bottom lines. As the LGBTQ community acquires new rights and responsibilities, lawyers have the opportunity for new revenue streams as they engage the civil justice system on behalf of clients who previously did not have equitable access.

In this episode, we hear from Meaghan Hearne, a graduate of Syracuse University College of Law. She's involved in a variety of general practice areas, from civil litigation and criminal defense to divorces and child custody. But much of her work engages LGBTQ clients and issues. Earlier in her career Meaghan protected same-sex, unmarried couples who nevertheless wanted the protections marriage afforded opposite-sex couples. She will likely keep doing volumes of work for the LGBTQ community. Currently, she's working on a civil litigation case that's moving the needle on who's protected from employment discrimination.

This episode is hosted by Debby Merritt, a law professor at Ohio State University. It is sponsored by Barbri Law Preview and Top-Law-Schools.com.
