About Judge Fahey

A 6th generation Texan, Judge Megan Fahey was appointed by Governor Greg Abbott in September 2019 to serve as Judge of the 348th District Court.  On November 3, 2020, Judge Fahey won her election to continue to serve as Judge of the 348th District Court.

 

With 20 years of trial and litigation experience, Fahey possesses the knowledge and skills that make her uniquely qualified to serve in this important role. Since taking the bench, she has demonstrated a commitment to pursuing truth and justice, interpreting the law as written, and conducting her courtroom in an impartial, fair, and efficient manner.

 

Judge Fahey received both her undergraduate degree and law degree, with honors, from the University of Texas by the time she was just 23 years old.  

 

Fahey began her career working for Bracewell LLP and Jenner & Block LLC, before she later went on to serve in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Fort Worth in 2005. As an Assistant U.S. Attorney, she quickly emerged as a strong and effective leader in both the civil and criminal divisions.  Judge Fahey was honored to receive the Executive Office for United States Attorneys (EOUSA) Director’s Award for Superior Performance in 2011, naming her one of the United States’ top civil AUSAs.

 

In addition to her commitment to integrity and excellence in her career, Fahey is a dedicated community leader, public servant, and proud mom. She is a member of the Tarrant County Bar Association and the Federalist Society and serves as a board member of United Methodist Women at First United Methodist Church and on the Student Health Advisory Committee for the Fort Worth Independent School District. She has served as a basketball and soccer coach, a VBS and Sunday School teacher, fundraising chair for Cub Scout Pack 9, and a room mom.

 

Fahey and her husband Stephen reside in Fort Worth with their three sons. They attend First United Methodist Church.
