Urbana law firm Tompkins & Ellis Co., LPA recently announced the addition of Attorney Meghann Scott, as a partner, as of March 1, and the firm has officially changed its name to Tompkins, Ellis & Scott Co., LPA. Tompkins & Ellis was formed by longtime local attorneys Ronald C. Tompkins and Kirk D. Ellis, in 2013, with offices at 121 S. Main St. in Urbana.
An alumna of Urbana High School, Scott earned her B.S., summa cum laude, in Journalism at the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, at Ohio University in 2003. She graduated from Capital University Law School in 2008 and became a member of the Ohio Bar in 2009. She worked at a law firm in Columbus until 2016.
