I've used Mr. Meekins' services for roughly 15 years and I couldn't recommend him highly enough! Having been in business for over 30 years with a staff of over 150 employees spread over four states, the range of legal services that I find myself involved in runs the full gamut from fairly insignificant to colossal, personal to corporate. I always turn to him first, despite working regularly with many other attorneys across many states. Being a woman in a man's world it's amazing how he listens and respects my opinion and knows when to push and when to back off. I've hired and fired many attorneys that wanted to tell me what to do rather than work with me and with Sam I always feel I have a partner in resolution. He's a fighter, and I love that, but he will always tell me when I need to stop fighting. I admire that he will be the first to admit if he doesn't know something (a rare treat as many attorneys I know just can't) and is always ready to seek and/or recommend one of his myriad of capable colleagues if it becomes necessary. I consider myself to be somewhat difficult and very opinionated. I am trying to be contemplative as I truly respect and appreciate the man’s abilities and I want this review to reflect that. I’ve never been asked for a reference or recommendation but I could talk for hours about the many, many cases he has helped me with and I can’t think of a single one that would end in a complaint about his legal ability or the counsel he has offered me. I prefer to keep my name off the review for business reasons but if you ever want to speak to me personally, ask him for my name and number because I’m sure when he reads this he will know who it came from.
Sam is an excellent attorney, but also has excellent analytical skills and generally understands and promotes amicable resolutions. However, if that can not be achieved, he is tenacious in his preparedness and thoroughness of understanding the case. He keeps you advised of the status of the case and is candid on his anticipation of outcomes. I highly recommend his services. If Sam does not feel he is the right person for the task, he endeavors to find the right representation for you.
