Margaret Wright is an associate attorney at King & Siegel LLP.

Ms. Wright graduated summa cum laude and in the top 5% of her class from the University of Mississippi School of Law, where she served as Executive Articles Editor of the Mississippi Law Journal and was elected to the Law School Student Body Executive Board. During law school, Ms. Wright volunteered with the Mississippi Innocence Project, where she worked to exonerate innocent persons wrongfully convicted of crimes.

Prior to joining King & Siegel, Ms. Wright represented employers in the nationally-ranked Labor & Employment group at Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith LLP. During this time, she gained key experience and insight into defense tactics against claims of harassment, discrimination, and wrongful termination, before dedicating her career to helping employees harmed in the workplace.
