Drew Eckl & Farnham is pleased to announce the addition of two new members to the Firm: Garret Meader and Rebecca Halberg.
“Garret and Rebecca have both been very successful in their work prior to joining our firm,” said Jim Anderson, current Drew Eckl & Farnham Chairman of the Board. “We know they will continue to be successful in their time with us, and we are excited to welcome them aboard.”
Garret Meader is sure to make a great addition to Drew Eckl & Farnham as a partner in the Brunswick office given his extensive experience in the area. His expertise lies in business litigation, constitutional law, employment law, appellate practice, and the resolution of zoning issues. As lead counsel, Garret has found success in numerous trials in both state and federal courts.
Mr. Meader’s professional career also involves experience outside of practicing law, including his employment as Chief Information Officer for the Association County Commissioners of Georgia and his roles on both the Governor's Task Force on Warning and Communication and the Census 2000 Complete Count Committee. Additionally, he wrote “The Free Internet Initiative in LaGrange, Georgia”, which was published by Harvard Business School.
Rebecca Halberg is an impressive addition to the firm as Of Counsel with bar certifications in both South Carolina and Georgia. Her primary practice focus is on Workers’ Compensation, through which she represents her clients in every stage of the defense process. Prior to joining Drew Eckl & Farnham, Rebecca served as shareholder and leader of the Workers’ Compensation department in her previous firm in South Carolina.
Ms. Halberg has been recognized as a Best Lawyer in America© and served as a Board Member for the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Educational Association. She combined her Workers’ Compensation knowledge with a passion for non-profit work as President of Kids’ Chance of South Carolina, an organization providing scholarships to the children of workers injured or killed on the job.
