Exemplary professionalism
Mathew handled my ligation against a business with the upmost professionalism. It took over a year to complete but he was there every step of the way. He was able to explain all the legal terminology to me without making me feel left in the dark. Mathew’s communications with their lawyers and the judges was done so precisely to the facts and legal boundaries of the courts. I know that this is what helped my case along with his thorough knowledge of the law. I highly recommend him.

A Gift from Heaven!
If you ever are in need of a Attorney call Mathew Meyer. We can not thank Mathew enough for what he did for us. He answers his phone, he answers his emails, he treats you with great respect. We had to liquidate our business due to a personal injury, the timing of our liquidation was not good and it left us short with our creditors, which of course lead to two creditors attempting lawsuits against us. Because of Mathew's knowledge of the law and shear determination to help us, we were able to settle both cases out of court and for a extremely reasonable amount. He is AWESOME to work with and we highly recommend him if you ever need a great Attorney. He changed our lives forever and we are so grateful that we asked him to represent us. Thank you Mathew.

Small Claims Court Dispute
I was highly satisfied with the level of professionalism that I received from Mathew. My case was a very different case that Mr. Meyer typically doesn't take but after hearing my story he jumped all over it. I was in a legal dispute with my previous management company over my security deposit that I put down on my town home. It took a few phone calls, and various emails from myself and Mathew to seal the deal. It was a long drawn out process but he guided me through it with with the reassurance that it would all work out and it did. If I need any future legal advice in the state of Minnesota I will be contacting Mr. Meyer again. Highly recommended!

Miracle Worker
Mr Meyer is a miracle worker. We had almost given up hope on being able to get out of the immensely difficult situation one of our hostile creditors put us in recently. However, when we met Mathew, his knowledge, experience, and wisdom allowed us to understand how we could protect ourselves and our business from being sabotaged by this creditor. He took the time to understand our side of the story. He put in hard work and detail into our case and ensured that he takes a much needed aggressive approach to prove our claims and negotiate an out of court settlement. Mr Meyer used his stringent negotiation skills that literally saved our company from shutting down. We now have a chance to survive and stay operational as he not only got us out of the huge mess the creditor created but also got us a major discount (almost 60%) on our dues which is incredible. I highly recommend Mr Meyer and I feel blessed we met him at the right time.

Best experience ever!
Working with Mathew on an agriculture lease was an effortless experience. He was informative, passionate and willing to look at issues on both sides. He understood our industry and is professional and timely. We will be trusting Mathew with all of our future needs and will refer anyone to him. His attention and dedication made us confident that he was working right along side of us.
