Regan is a Shareholder at Dickinson Bradshaw, practicing primarily as a family law attorney with an emphasis in child custody and complex property disputes.

In child custody actions, Regan brings compassion and zeal to her advocacy of client’s rights and interests. Regan is particularly suited to work with clients whose children express a strong preference in their future custodial arrangement.

In dissolutions involving property disputes, Regan uses her exceptional attention to detail to uncover hidden assets, income, and liabilities. Regan also works with other members of the firm in the areas of real estate, tax, estate planning, and bankruptcy to ensure the client receives the most stable financial outcome.

In her family law practice, Regan routinely works in matters concerning self-employment income, business valuations, family farm operations, inheritance, alimony, and private adoptions.

Regan is committed to her practice and uniquely understands the painstaking attention each client needs.

In her free time, Regan enjoys being a “boy mom,” spending time with her husband and two dogs, reading, and indulging in celebrity gossip.
