For over ten years Stuart Meissner has been my go-to counselor. Stuart is bright, articulate, and knows the law. He is also extremely accessible. I would never hesitate to recommend Stuart Meissner for legal work or consultation.
My case was relatively simple, a small endeavor for Stuart relative to the impact and major settlement’s he’s achieved for his many clients. That said, he made me feel as if my case was the most important one he’s ever argued. His attention to detail and service rendered a “best scenario” outcome that I didn’t think was possible, and now I can move forward with my career. Thank you Stuart!
My case was against a former employer. [Stuart] was GREAT on the case from the filings to the mediation which bypassed the arbitration. He fought for me from the beginning to the end. I was extremely impressed by his knowledge of the opponent and how the case would go. I would recommend him in a heartbeat and retain him again if ever the need arose.
FINRA had sent me several series of questions to answer for 8 months. It was never ending. My evenings and weekends where consumed with worry and writing responses to events 11 months ago. Stuart, returned my phone call, and followed up. He helped me limit superfluous information and zero in on the questions being asked. This was fairly settled and closed. My life is back to helping my clients.
Thank you for everything that you have done for us! We are so pleased with the outcome of this case and would highly recommend you to anyone in a similar situation! You are an expert in your field !
