Excellent Services
I hired Mr. Meyer for a work related incident and could not have been more satisfied with his services. He was knowledgeable with department grievance procedures and was very informative during each step of the way. It was reassuring to know that if I needed to call him, he was available 24/7. I never felt misled nor given false hope anytime during the process.

Personable and Knowledgeable Attorney
Andrew Meyer is an amazing attorney who is very thorough with his research while putting all parts of a case together. He was referred to me by a former teammate who had just finished law school and trusted him; and, I was thankful that she gave me his information. Mr. Meyer got all the details of my case and explained all that I should expect when we arrived in court. Once we were there, he was very professional in representing me and getting my case to a good end. I would definitely call on Mr. Meyer again if I ever needed assistance in a family legal matter.

Andrew is a true professional. As he worked on my case, I found him to be trustworthy, knowledgeable, responsive and extremely conscientious. He was excellent at keeping me informed and had no problem taking time to ensure I understood all aspects of my case. Andrew ensured justice was served. I would have no apprehensions about referring him to others in the future.

One of Richmonds Best Attorneys
Mr. Meyer is a bulldog of an attorney who will relentlessly fight for his clients to ensure the treatment they receive is both legal and fair. Through dedicated research Mr. Meyer worked, and continues to work for me, leaving no legal stone unturned as our case works it way through the legal system. Mr. Meyer is completely capable in his craft to skillfully navigate the court system, at all levels. I would trust Mr. Meyer to handle any of my legal needs, business or personal.

Only lawyer that we will ever use
Mr. Myer has successfully represented our family in a complicated civil matter against the Commonwealth. We found him very responsive to our requirements, and he kept us fully informed along the way. His success was largely based on his aggressive pursuit of available information to develop viable options for our consideration, cost playing heavily in decision-making. Mr. Myer was always available to discuss our case, and made time to answer questions to our satisfaction.

I am pleased to recommend Andy Meyer.
Andy Meyer is a good and competent attorney and I felt confident that he had my legal matters in his hands. I am pleased with the work he did for me on my case and would highly recommend him to others. I hope I never need him again but he will be my go-to-guy next time an inept and politically correct government agency takes on one of the few tenacious old school street cops left out there.
