Assistant Attorney General

Meb has been practicing law since 2004. He started out at Stirba & Associates where he was able to fine tune a civil rights practice with Peter Stirba as a mentor. While at Stirba's office they took the Pearson v. Callahan case to the U.S. Supreme Court, and reshaped the qualified immunity framework and analysis in civil rights litigation. Meb also had the opportunity to assist with numerous trials and draft and argue complex motions. After joining the Utah Attorney General's Office Litigation Division, in 2011, Meb continued to refine his civil rights litigation skills. At the AGs office he has had the opportunity to successfully try cases in federal court, and argue numerous dispositive motions in high profile cases in both state and federal court. While Meb loves the practice of law, his most memorable contributions to the AGs office may have occurred on the softball field. Meb joined the Utah Attorney General's Office Education Division and moved his office and legal practice to Southern Utah University's campus in June of 2019.
