About Megan Elizabeth Roper

Attorney Biography

Megan is a proud life-long Texan. She was born and raised in San Antonio. She graduated from Texas State University in San Marcos before returning home to San Antonio to complete her law degree at St. Mary’s University School of Law.

As a law student, Megan worked at Texas Rio Grande Legal Aid where she helped low-income Texans with legal issues. She also interned at the Bexar County District Attorney's Office and the Office of Public Defender for the Western District of Texas. Her experience in the district attorney's office was both enlightening and career changing. Working there opened her eyes to the vast and pervasive abuses fellow citizens suffer at the hands of the criminal justice system. That experience has made Megan a passionate advocate for the rights of her fellow citizens.

After receiving her law license in 2011, Megan devoted her practice to defending those accused of crimes by the government. She began her career in San Antonio, initially focusing on intoxication related offenses, including DWI and other drug crimes.

In 2015, Megan moved to Central Texas area and began a firm in San Marcos, where I defended a wide-variety of criminal accusations, including DWI, drug possession, assault, theft, and many others.

In 2016, Megan partnered with Daniel Mehler to form Roper & Mehler. Since that time, they have expanded their practice to serve more areas in Texas. In July 2016, they opened an office in Dallas to better service the North Texas area. Together Megan and Daniel shifted their focus to cannabis related issues, including criminal defense and advice and consultation services for emerging businesses in the cannabis industry.

In 2020, Megan accepted a position as a criminal defense litigator at JBabb Law.

In addition to her work inside a courtroom, Megan is an advocate for the reform of cannabis laws in Texas.

Megan is a founding board member of the Texas Association of Cannabis Lawyers, a former board member of the San Antonio Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, an active member of the Dallas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, and the Legal Committee of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.
