If you are seeking a candid and trustworthy attorney who is highly respected in the courtroom to advocate and defend you with unwavering determination and skill, then you simply won't find better than Charlie. Always one step ahead, Charlie expertly navigates the complexities of his case with remarkable foresight, strategy, decency, and resolve.

Does not mince words, does not lead you astray, very fair
Divorce isn't a fun process, but Charlie Meyer's knowledge and approach to a difficult situation made it a little easier. Unlike other attorneys I consulted, he didn't tell me what I wanted to hear but instead what was a fair and likely outcome (even if it wasn't 100% in my favor). He has a very patient, encouraging, and casual manner that put me at ease. Charlie always got back to me even in my most hysterical moments, often early in the morning, often on weekends. I believe he has a good sense of personalities as well-- understanding how much information a client needs and wants and knowing, too, when to keep some of the unimportant nonsense quiet. Needless to say he has extensive knowledge of the laws in quite a few counties in and outside Philadelphia, and he seems to have a good rapport with lawyers/ masters/ judges in a courtroom setting. If you're looking for a fair and balanced approach to your case--and for someone to put a lot of fight and effort into getting you what you deserve-- Charlie is a good choice.

Charlie is a unique resource
Charlie Meyer has consistently been a supportive and knowledgeable resource. I have learned the value of his experience and benefitted from his ability to navigate family court. Charlie has always been fair and professional. What I appreciate most about Charlie’s council is his ability to balance being practical yet an advocate for his client. There have been times his advice regarding emotional matters like custody and support was not what I wanted to hear, but he shared his advice and listened to me. When it came time to go into court or negotiate with opposing council he demonstrated the ability to protect his client while always moving towards resolutions. Charlie has become a relationship that I value because of the good person he is, aside from a great attorney.
