Professionalism, knowledge, and courtesy-plus
On the advice of my family attorney, I contacted Mr. Meyer regarding asset protection. I am over 70 years of age and have been widowed for 4 1/2 years. I am contemplating marrying a gentleman and good friend that I have known for many years. We are concerned that, at our ages, if one of us should require nursing home care in the future, how can we each protect our assets so that the remaining spouse would not be impoverished by having to pay nursing home enormous costs. In our initial phone consultation, Mr. Meyer offered a very good solution and the reasons for doing it. During a second phone consultation, Mr. Meyer very courteously answered my questions about Medicaid rules and worst case scenarios. He and his staff were always professional, friendly and helpful. I will certainly recommend Mr. Meyer to all my acquaintances who need estate planning, asset protection, and/or legal advice.
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.
My estate plans did not need to be overly complex like other attorneys I had talked to suggested. When I first talked to you, I gave my reasons for what I wanted in my estate plan and you listened and made suggestions. I provided you with much working information about my specific situation and within a short time, I was contacted that the wills, powers of attorney and other paperwork was ready for review. I carefully reviewed them then contacted your office with a few small corrections. I set up an appointment for the following day to come with my wife and to sign the paperwork.
The signing ceremony was quickly complete and I am very happy with the results. I like the fact that the documents are also available electronically so I can provide copies of some of the documents to our health care providers.
I know that I will seek your counsel in the future as I deal with the challenges of aging. I have already mentioned my satisfaction with your services among my group of friends and would certainly recommend that they contact you with their estate planning needs.
Pleasure to collaborate with such a professional team
I am highly pleased with the estate planning documents prepared by R. F. Meyer & Associates. The team ably prepared the requested legal documents for my mother and assiduously navigated COVID-19 protocols to get them safely signed. 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.
Supporting my best interests
Thank you again for being available and it was a pleasure to have met up with you the other morning. It’s been very much less stressful having yourself, Trina, Christy, Richard & Mary, and as well as David to be supporting my best interests in this.
Looking ahead with this team of professionals I’m grateful to have on my side has, and I’m sure will continue, to get my situation on a positive and rightful path. It’s not over, but I can sleep at night thanks to all of you folks up there in Ohio.
You were a BIG HIT!!!!!
Dear Richard, Thank you for taking the time to come and talk with our associates (at the State Teachers Retirement System of Ohio). This is what I have heard so far: “He was AWESOME.” “WOW – He was so great.” “We need to have him come back.” “I am going to get some things together and call him.” “He was so personable and funny – not like any attorney I’ve ever met!” “He was so helpful – I thought I was all set but boy do I have to get busy!” “Have him back – like every week!” “Those handouts are so helpful – the definitions are invaluable.” You were a BIG HIT!!!!! I appreciate you taking your valuable time and being so generous with it. You have a roomful of fans and the word is spreading. Your presentation was great and I think the questions would have just kept coming! Thank you again, Pat
Excellent and professional legal services
I am ever so grateful to have you occasionally review and update our estate plan. 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. We certainly know who to call when the need arises as your firm will have the expertise and knowledge to properly guide our final wishes. I cannot thank you and the entire staff enough for your excellent and professional legal services. I wish your entire staff the very best.
Thanks for Buddy Walk support
As a Grandfather of a Down Syndrome child, I would like to take the time to thank you for your sponsor support of the October 3rd Buddy Walk. This was my first Buddy Walk and it was very inspiring. The Down Syndrome Association of Central Ohio did a great job of organizing the event. I think there must have been a thousand people walking (with your logo on their shirt!). Thanks again and keep up the good work.
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.
Excellent communication, not in a rush with us
Richard is amazing! With safety concerns about my parents, he cleared the air for me and on their behalf. I left our 30 minute discussion feeling much better about next steps. He’s an excellent communicator; he was not in a rush to finish our discussion; and provided options to present to my parents. R.F. Meyer is intelligent, credible and very well spoken. You will not leave the discussion with unanswered questions or concerns.
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. I looked online at several different elder care attorneys, and R. F. Meyer had the best reviews, so we called and made an appointment for a consultation.
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.
My husband and I were treated with so much professionalism every step of the way. Attorney Meyer set up my mothers-in-law’s will, power of attorney, medical power of attorney, living will, and caregiver agreements. He advised us on the next steps to move forward with getting my mother-in-law into a facility as quickly as possible.
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!
Appreciate the newsletter
The newsletters are a valuable source of great information regarding multiple important topics. The subject matter is excellently chosen and much appreciated.
Grateful and appreciative
Thank you (Richard and Bridget) so much for the extraordinary job that the two of you performed in handling this situation. We could not have resolved it without you. We are ever grateful and appreciative of all the time and hard work that you both put into this effort. Halleluia!
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!
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.
Sincere thanks for all your help
The flower arrangement you sent for Helen’s funeral were just beautiful. While I had a much more difficult time dealing with her loss, I must admit the final arrangements, communications with Medicaid and the long-term care facility were easy due to the thoughtfulness and completeness in which your firm had prepared all of the necessary documents. I often think back some 16 years ago when you handled my father’s estate and began the talk in helping us prepare for this day. I sincerely thank you and the staff for all your help.
So nice to know you are there for me
I just wanted to thank you and acknowledge your help in consulting me regarding the sale of my condominium.
It was obvious I didn’t know how to handle the situation, but with your input and advice (in plain English), I feel that all will work out very well. It’s so nice to know that you are there for me.
Another reason for my thank you was that everything was taken care of through telephone conversations and that impressed me so much!
