A true Central Florida girl, Merideth grew up in Clermont, with roots in the community on her father’s side all the way back to 1913! She has been an attorney since 1997, with experience working first in Tallahassee for Florida Supreme Court Justice Barbara Pariente, then in Downtown Chicago at a large white-stocking firm. Merideth and her family moved back to Clermont in 2005, where she has been happily practicing in her own boutique firm since. Ms. Nagel is now the wife of a Presbyterian minister and mother to three boys, ages 7, 13 and 23. Merideth loves her life and is proud to be an attorney. She does not identify herself through her many accomplishments, but rather in her ability to give of herself to others. She finds value in helping clients navigate the often difficult legal roads of life and business, and forging relationships with them based on mutual caring and respect—relationships she hopes will last a lifetime. Merideth has very little time for hobbies. Being a pastor’s wife, rearing three boys and running a thriving law practice keep her plenty busy. When not at church, working, or taking care of her husband and children, Merideth can be found reading, enjoying Downton Abbey or just resting from happy exhaustion. Merideth is an avid pro and college football fan – (GO NOLES!) – and an adept manager of her fantasy football team. She is very active in the community, serving in the past and presently on almost every profession and civic board and non-profit in the area, including the South Lake Chamber of Commerce, the South Lake Community Foundation, the Lake County Education Foundation, the Cornerstone Hospice Foundation, the Pig on the Pond board and Leadership Lake County.
Merideth founded her law firm and Concierge Title Services in 2005 — “changing the world one client at a time.” True to this mission, Merideth has dedicated her time to helping her clients face whatever life throws at them, and assembling a staff of lawyers and employees dedicated to making a difference. Merideth focuses her practice on real estate related matters in addition to contract negotiations, closings, foreclosure defense and short sales, as well as simple and complex bankruptcies, estate planning and probate.
