The Estate Planning attorney I needed
Dear Mr. Meyer, I had been searching for an elder law attorney for quite some time and talked to a few. I was never satisfied with their plans. Finally, I went to David Gordon, my family attorney, who had helped us in the past and prepared our previous wills. He suggested that I come to you for help. ...
The signing ceremony was quickly complete and I am very happy with the results. ...

Pleasure to collaborate with such a professional team
I am highly pleased with the estate planning documents prepared by R. F. Meyer & Associates.

It was a pleasure to collaborate with such a professional team. I absolutely recommend R. F. Meyer & Associates for your legal services.
Always there to offer their expertise
I can’t thank the entire staff at R. F. Meyer & Associates enough for all their help and knowledge with the handling of my Mother’s Guardianship account. They were always so helpful with the many questions I had through this process.
Her account ended up being very complicated and I needed extra help from them all from time to time. They were always there to offer their expertise when I called and guided me in the correct direction! I would highly recommend them! Even after my mom passed away they helped me go through the process of closing out the guardianship process so that everything was completed very smoothly.
Treated with so much professionalism every step of the way
I would describe R. F. Meyer and Associates as extremely professional and knowledgeable. My husband and I needed to get Medicaid planning information for my mother-in-law who has dementia and could no longer take care of herself. ...
Our first point of contact was with Mary, who is one of their paralegals. Mary was great and a huge asset to the firm! We spoke with Attorney Meyer, and he gave us the best legal advice, so we decided to follow through and have he and his firm prepare all our legal documents for my mother-in-law. ...
We are thrilled with his work and the work of his staff. His prices are reasonable, and most importantly, he was always available to talk to us over the phone and via email. I wouldn’t look any further for an elder care Attorney R. F. Meyer is the best choice!
Blessed to have you in our lives
I am so blessed to have you in our lives right now. Mom is excited and exhausted all at the same time! I hope you know that we would have struggled without you, so with my greatest thank you, Thank You!
Real elder law attorneys
I encounter so many people who held themselves out as ‘elder law’ attorneys who know less than the general practitioner. To so many of them it’s about marketing and grossly inflated fees. It’s good to know you guys and to have someone to whom I can send people when it looks like they need real help.
I don’t take lightly your continued willingness to help
Richard Meyer, I don’t take lightly your continued willingness to help with matters that are not clear cut or simple, and I appreciate your continued support on difficult matters. I appreciate that even when client relations degrade outside of our control, you always maintain your patience, professionalism, courtesy, and place above other matters, our good relationship. I appreciate that when you cannot add value to a client’s position, you are quick to point it out and exit the file. These are not small things and are a tribute to your excellent character, your firm, and our profession. I try to notice, remember, and incorporate the best traits of the attorneys I encounter into my routine, and these traits of yours should be aspirational for all our brethren. Thank you for all you do.
Very impressed and pleased
My wife and I began our relationship with (this law firm) when my wife’s mother required full time care in a nursing facility, and it has continued on through the loss of her mother and father. We have been very impressed and pleased with the extraordinary legal expertise, advice, and planning provided by the firm. The final outcome that came as a direct result of their work could not have been any better. We are very thankful that a dear friend of ours referred us to you so many years ago.
Excellent and professional legal services

Your forethought has put our minds at ease as we are confident that the necessary documents are in order to help us through life’s adventure.
