My experience with Mr Meine.
You always hope that you never need an attorney. Fred over the years has always given me straight up advice. He has in the past referred me to another attorney that specialized in my type of case. Recently I had another issue come up. I contacted Fred and he sent me in a different direction, that help resolve the issue. I appreciate his honesty and knowledge.

Very Responsive
Fred worked with our firm on a messy real estate transaction that went south and had potential to go to court. His attention to detail and responsiveness was very impressive. He communicated on the finer points, and made sure we were well advised of all of our options.
