Miami managing partner John Meagher, partner Frank Zacherl, and associate Damien Reynolds were featured in the Daily Business Review. The article, entitled “Attorneys Who Rock: These South Florida Lawyers Moonlight as Musicians,” highlights seven musically inclined lawyers.
John began college as a trombone major; however, he quickly realized that was a tough way to make a living, hence the switch to the law. He plays in the Greater Miami Symphonic Band and in a brass quintet called Miami’s Top Brass. When asked to form a band for a United Way fundraiser in 2016, John, a long-time guitarist, joined with Frank, another guitarist, to form the firm’s house band, “LLP”, a classic rock cover band. John’s wife, Joanne, was also drafted to sing vocals in the band. LLP’s bass player, Damien Reynolds, was in law school at UM when the band started and recently joined the firm as an associate. LLP won second place in that first “battle” and returned the following year to win the top prize! John states, “We keep our work life separate: no one wants to really remind themselves that they’re not rock and roll stars, that instead they’re just lawyers.”
