Caring, Family man who is astute lawyer
Lance Meyer helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life after being referred to me by a friend. He is a man who is not only a ferocious, knowledgeable lawyer in the courtroom but an honest down to earth soul. He will never lead you entirely but always offers fair real-world advice to allow you to make a decision which fits you. My case was complicated crossing multiple states involving civil and criminal law. Lance helped me navigate them almost seamlessly and bettered my future after multiple false criminal filings during a very ugly divorce. He is billing is always an open book and there were no surprises. I highly recommend Lance if you are looking for an attorney. I wouldn't be where I am today without him

Heart
Lance Meyer had represented me for over 10 years for various reasons. He has also represents other family members and friends of mine. He is outstanding lawyer and actually cares about your case. I couldn't of asked for a better lawyer to represent me. He is professional, works hard on your case and works with heart. He always gets back to me right away and helps you through your whole process. Getting divorced and fighting for custody is one of the hardest things a mother has to go through and Lance not only fought for me as my lawyer but actually cared about my case and was always honest with me. I highly recommend Lance Meyer and have even recommended him to others that also feel the same way. It's not easy to find a lawyer who actually cares about the client the way he does. Thanks for all that you of done for me and my family.

Teacher/mother
I found Lance through the internet and saw great reviews as a family/divorce lawyer. I am very glad that I did. He has been kind, understanding, and willing to fight for me from day one. He asks all the necessary questions, listens to what you have to say, and will tell you upfront what you are facing without sugarcoating anything. Yet he does so without being harsh. Lance actually cares about you and will go to any lengths he can for you. He always responds to emails, txts, and/or calls in a timely fashion. I have been very satisfied with having Lance as my attorney during this difficult time. I would recommend him to any woman going through a divorce, especially those with children.

Divorce case
Mr. Meyer was always prompt in assisting me with my case. One important aspect that I really appreciated is that each time he personally showed up in court and was familiar with my case. I have no reservations recommending him to others.

My divorce was smooth, easy and quick
Lance was terrific. I explained what i needed and wanted and was able to have something ready for quickly. Had there been any changes in my decision, Lance was very patient in regards to fixing the document. He also stays in touch and has great and easy communication with his clients. I was divorced in less than an year, about 10 months. I highly suggest him!

Excellent divorce attorney.
Lance H. Meyer was very professional and handled my divorce extremely well and did everything required to handle my divorce. My ex tried every avenue to put a monkey wrench in my path and Lance didn’t let that happen. I was able to stay in my house for a few years with my kids which my ex was trying to throw me out for no apparent reason and also tried to set me up. Lance Meyer handled everything and stopped actions when my ex tried to pull out all the stops. I was able to keep my assets and my home for over 2 years while the divorce was pending. Thanks for a job well done! I was able to get everything I was entitled to. I highly recommended Lance Meyer! He is capable and knowledgeable. Thank you so much!!

Above and beyond!
Lance is doing a terrific job in my court cases. I’m a single father and going through a contested divorce, custody. Lance is currently representing me in family court as well as supreme court. From our initial meeting I felt at ease and in good hands; he is well-versed in the law, experienced, honest, confident without being arrogant and personable. Quick responses to emails, easy to schedule meetings with, very intelligent and insightful and is well recognized in the courts. I recommend him to everyone I meet.

Highly Reccommend
It is hard to find an attorney that you can really talk to especially when it is for a divorce. Lance made me feel completely comfortable talking about all the issues I had to have taken care of. Whenever I needed him he was just a phone call away.

Divorce
A lawyer who tells you like it is and advises you on the best course of action, unlike some lawyers who tells you that they can do what you want and what you would like to happen, just to get your case. We were able to get a fair settlement with a seemingly aggressive and popular law firm. I highly recommend Mr Meyer if you are looking for an honest lawyer who will work in your best interest.

Seemless guidance and expertise.
Under the unknown circumstances of divorce, Lance provided the detailed knowledge of the laws in New York State to help make the process fair and smooth. Despite a shared home and family debt, Lance provided guidance and empathy where both parties came away feeling fairly represented.

When ever I needed to ask Lance anything he was there for me. He does exactly what he says he’s going to do. I have used Lance for almost 7 years and will continue to do so. I would recommend him to anyone that may be in the same situation.

Puts me at ease and very competent.
Lance Meyer is an amazing attorney. From the moment I went into his office and had a consult I had no doubt in my mind that this was the attorney for my divorce. He prepared my paperwork flawlessly and seamlessly and my paperwork was done on time and properly. I’m still going through my divorce and he always handles everything with confidence and his calming approach helps me cope with this entire process. My questions are always answered and he always tells me not to worry (which I need) because the stress from this is sometimes overwhelming to me. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a great attorney. I’m so happy I hired him.

So far so good !
Searching for an attorney is extremely stressful, as I have multiple issues that require specific attention. Met Lance and felt confident he is the best choice. Lance is educated, bright, experienced, clever, highly intelligent. You don't feel like your being prosecuted for decision you made that led you to your initial meeting with Lance. I am just at the beginning stages with Mr. Meyer, so it is difficult to provide an outcome, but I will follow up in the up and coming weeks.

Divorce
I hired Lance back in 2014 as a divorce attorney, my case was suppose to be uncontested but it turned out to be contested because my wife was very stubborn. Lance handled the case well, the case ended up being settled without going to trial which saved me time and money. He is a good negotiator and never makes promises he cannot deliver on. I would definitely hire Mr. Meyer again.

Divorce Attorney Experience
Highly recommend Lance Meyer. He is smart, careful, kind, patient and fair.... all things that anyone could want in an attorney. Lance is responsive and offered a "soothing" touch throughout difficult proceedings. He helped us understand the legal process as we were going through it, which was also comforting. Being on one end of a law suit or legal battle is never easy or comfortable. Lance explained everything that was in front of us and the possible outcomes in whatever scenarios we were facing. He's a great guy, trust-worthy and acts in good faith.
