Minor Legal Woe Just Went Away
These guys can handle the big issues, but they can also help you out of a jam in a traffic incident. I got probably six different attorney letters afterwards offering their services, but I wanted more personal service, and Matt was so good at letting me know where we stood in the process. I didn't worry about a thing while he handled everything. It couldn't have been easier, and a bad situation was made better. Thanks, Matt!

Excellent Service
Matt was very thorough with my case. He handled it professionally and quickly. I could not have asked for better service. He made me feel at ease and kept me informed each step of the way.

Excellent Law Firm to Work With
I recently worked with Meyerkord Law Firm for a personal injury case. I had a lawyer previously who didn't think that my case was worth her time because she didn't feel the pay out would be large enough. When I took my case to Matt he was honest and upfront about everything. He always kept me in the loop, whenever something was happening I knew within a day. He never made any decisions without previously consulting me. It was such a change from the previous counsel I had retained. He was more than willing to put in the hard work and showed the other party that we were serious about our claims. I would reccomend his law firm to anyone that wants a responsible lawyer, who is down to earth, upfront and honest about what could happen, and willing to put in the time to make sure everything is done right. We were about to go to trial when finally the other party settled, I know if I had continued with the other law firm I wouldn't have gotten anything.

The Great Tall One
When I met Mr Meyerkord and discussed my issue, I told him there was no way anything would happen. Mr Meyerkord told me he was willing to try so he took on my case and went to work. . Doing the time Mr Meyerkord kept me informed and knowledgeable specially since I thought he was wasting his time. To make this short he did a great! job. and won my case. So from my point of view like Tony the Tiger says he iGREAT! very down to earth, approachable, Okay I might be a little bias, because he did a very good job for me.

My Case Was In Good Hands
Matt took care of everything. Along the way he would explain things to me in a way I could clearly understand. He would offer advice, ask for my opinions, and then he would get things done. I would hire Matt again (although I hope I don't need to).
