Awesome Attorney!
Mr Meyer helped me out with a modification in my old divorce decree. The one I had was not very specific enough and he made it to where it's more specific to where my ex could follow; including myself. He did so much for me and when I had a question he was always there to help me no matter what I wanted to ask. He is a awesome attorney and I would recommend him to anyone who needs a good attorney.

I Would Highly Recommend David as a Top-Rated Lawyer!
David was very personable and trustworthy. He listened to all of my needs and communicated incredibly clearly during a very trying period in my life. He was proactive in contacting me about updates regarding my case. He went out of his way and above and beyond to help me resolve all of my needs in a very timely, proficient manner. Thank you, David, for all of your help. I would highly recommend David as a top-rated lawyer.

A blessing
David has been a huge blessing to our family. We contacted him and explained why we needed a lawyer he got us an appointment right away. He is always working hard on our case and keeps us updated. Its hard for me to let go of control when It's something I want but with David he makes it easy. I know he will do the very best for us and update me along the way. I would recommend David! He is a huge blessing to us and is helping us grow our family through adoption.

The second time I asked him to stop agreeing to things with opposing council without talking to me, he called me hard to work with and recommended I find another attorney. I asked my next attorney if making decisions without consulting the client was normal and he said, "No, that's just a bad lawyer." Disregarded every comment I made, did things directly against what I asked him to do, gave my ex whatever she was asking for on multiple occasions without asking for anything in return or even trying to negotiate. If you like being talked down to, this is your guy.

Child Custody
Hired for a child custody battle. It appeared that he had absolutely no idea what he was doing. Spent several thousand dollars, and essentially wrote own parenting plan. Had to stay on the attorney to get anything done. Would be better off representing yourself.

Not impressed!
If a no star rating was an option that's what he would get from me. I went to a "free" consultation and as an hour passed he said he was now charging me. I guess it's only free until he is ready to start charging you? I left there feeling insulted and on the phone with someone else to represent me. According to him If you drink and have a DUI pending( not yet convicted) then you are an alcoholic. I thought it was "innocent until proven guilty"??. I left there feeling judged and will not recommend or ever attempt to retain him again
