It's very hard to imagine that ANY attorney could've done better for me than Ron Meyers.
I have permanent damage and intense pain from an MVA. I hired Ron when MY insurance company refused, retroactively, to pay on a legitimate PIP claim. After only one letter from him, they paid to my policy's PIP limits.
Later, as my medical bills mounted, MY insurance company again refused to negotiate in good faith on my under-insured motorists policy, forcing us to file suit to recover the funds needed to pay my medical bills. Rather than face Ron Meyers in court, the insurance company settled in pre-trial arbitration for 90+% of the policy limits. This saved me tens of and maybe even a hundred thousand dollars in trial, expert witness, and preparation costs compared to going through the entire court process.
My insurance company paid over 90% of the maximum a jury would have awarded because they were afraid of Ron Meyers. Without a trial, that's something most attorneys will never get for their clients.
Ron kept me from filing bankruptcy with no chance of ever retiring. Thanks to Ron, I now have enough to pay my all of my medical bills and maybe even one day retiring somewhere warm and tropical.
Forget about taking on an insurance company unless you have Ron Meyers in your corner. His is the last name they want to see on a legal document, which means it is the first name you want on yours.

I have used the services of Ronald Meyers and his firm on several cases; he and his staff have advised my family on the most sensitive legal matters. Perhaps because of current reruns of BBC's Sherlock my sense is that you are really hiring Holmes when hire Meyers (absent the violin and other annoyances); the principal distinction being that while every bit as smart, Ron is infinity more sympathetic than Holmes. However, like Sherlock, it almost feels like cheating to have him on your side. Everyone he surrounds himself with is absolutely top drawer.
More than just in the legal field, I took this man's recommendation for someone to operate on my spine. That doctor, like Meyers, turned out to be one of the most brilliant people I've come to know. (Spine's doing quite well, thank you.) In other words, I have literally trusted Ron Meyers with my life. I would not hesitate to do so again.
It should be noted that he has represented me on several matters and prevailed every time. When you see his case book after your problem is resolved, you'll feel glad you weren't on the other side. It should also be said that every single person in his office that I have come in contact with was exceptional unless they were extraordinary. Meyers skills are such that I consult with him first when I need a lawyer for ANYTHING, always wishing that he could do it all. I'm not a relative of anyone at the firm and my only compensation has been my health and my case settlements. I am just a grateful injured party. I hope I never need a personal injury lawyer again but, if I do, I won't be shopping around. Success and compassion speak for themselves.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse this lawyer. I have seen first-hand the high quality work done by Ron Meyers, his associates and staff in nursing home litigation. They know the law. They have the experts. They know how to develop the facts. The proof is in the constant successes in this complicated field of the law.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I endorse this lawyer. Ron is a zealous and passionate advocate for his clients. He and his wife Donna make a great team and their combined decades of experience are a benefit to anyone lucky enough to hire their firm.
