Practice areas

I have been actively engaged in the practice of law since 1970, primarily as a commercial litigator. I have participated in and tried to conclusion hundreds of cases in a wide variety of areas, in both the State Courts and the Federal Courts. A number of the cases in which I have participated are important, landmark decisions. Most recently, I have devoted a significant part of my practice to class actions involving nutraceutical (nutritional supplements) products. I am considered to be one of the foremost reviewers of nutraceutical products in the country. I am also a consumer advocate and mediate disputes in the nutraceutical field.

Upon graduation from law school in 1967, I received a ROTC commission as a First Lieutenant in the U.S. Army and, in 1968, was assigned to the Presidio of San Francisco where I served as an Armed Forces Courier transporting classified material throughout the world. In 1969 I was promoted to the rank of Captain and was deployed to the Republic of Vietnam where I served as a Company Commander of a Civil Affairs Company located in the Mekong Delta. I am the recipient of the Bronze Star. I completed my tour of duty in 1970, at which time I commenced private practice as an attorney. 

I am an avid athlete and outdoorsman who is passionate about deep powder skiing, scuba diving, deep sea fishing, four wall handball, sporting clays, and golf.

The best there is!
Richard represented me in a class action case against a company known for manufacturing dietary supplements which claiming to support well being and healthy living. After having adverse side affects to one of their products I decided to contact Richard for a consultation. I couldn't be happier with my decision. His care for me as a client and his passion for being an attorney allowed me to have piece of mind that my case would be resolved in a fair and suitable manner. Thank you again Richard!

An Dedicated Attorney w/ extensive experience and unwavering dedication
I am a United States Air Force Veteran and had the pleasure of encountering Mr. Meirowitz at the Department of Veterans Affairs. After explaining to him that I was hired in a temporary capacity and may lose my government position as a Vocational rehabilitation Specialist he took immediate action to assist me. He contacted the Director of the VA, the Chief of Psychology and the Chief of Vocational Rehabilitation and advocated for me to retain my job. It was partially because of his advocacy that I still employed here, received a promotion and became a permanent employee within the VA. I will always be deeply grateful for his extremely high level of integrity, morals, and for being a master in his field. I sincerely recommend Mr. Meirowitz to represent anyone who needs a no-nonsense and dedicated professional on their side.

An Attorney Second to None & Brilliant Legal Scholar
Superlative.....exemplary....integrity....brilliant legal and consumer scholar....These are the words which I believe describe Mr. Richard Meirowitz. I have known Richard Meirowitz for several years after initially consulting him on a consumer (neutraceutical) matter. His legal acumen, unwavering moral barometer for always doing the right thing and relentless advocacy for his clients combine to form the perfect equation for client success. Mr. Meirowitz is a consummate professional who genuinely cares for his clients and the support I received was extraordinary. I marveled at his comprehensive case research and ability to strategize effectively and quickly identify the relevant aspects of the case. His communication with me was frequent and consistent. As a top consumer advocate, I especially appreciated his in-depth expertise and knowledge base within the challenging nutritional supplement market. For example, Mr. Meirowitz was rated a Top 20 Amazon Reviewer for many years. As a result of his extensive product research, he provided pro bono consumer advice and consultations to hundreds of consumers globally. I valued his consultations which helped provide clear perspectives to me in several unique and challenging instances. As a professional having worked with many attorneys, it is rare to find such a strong advocate who will pursue the merits of your case passionately and aggressively but with sensitivity and integrity. I unconditionally endorse and recommend Richard Meirowitz-Clients will be unusually well served as a result of his diverse and extensive background.

Dedicated to Purpose and Integrity
I have worked with Richard in a variety of roles and found his commitment to his values and responsibilities to be without reproach. I met Richard in 2012 when I was CEO of a major dietary supplement company that he was reviewing as a consumer advocate. I found Richard to be fair and attentive to comments. Since then I have worked with Richard as a defender for the industry while I lead nonprofit trade associations. Richard's commitment to purpose and integrity is paramount to all other considerations and evidenced in both process and result.
