Meyer Wilson is a boutique firm devoted solely to investor claims and class action lawsuits. With offices in Ohio, California, and Michigan, we practice nationwide, and have represented thousands of clients since 1999, including individual and institutional investors in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, New York, Miami, Orlando, Tampa, Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, Charlotte, Detroit, Indianapolis, Dallas, Houston, Seattle.
When you trust a stockbroker or financial advisor with your investments, you are entrusting that advisor with your future financial security. When that trust is broken and the broker commits fraud, mismanages your investments, or engages in unethical or illegal conduct, consult an experienced investment fraud attorney from Meyer Wilson immediately.
The sole focus of our six lawyers and extensive support team is investor claims and mass/class action lawsuits.
Part of what makes Meyer Wilson so unique is that we do not spread our resources thin over many different legal practice areas; nor do we take on a large caseload of investor claims cases. Investment and securities arbitrations and lawsuits require a deep understanding of the securities industry and tremendous attention to detail. Our securities fraud attorneys pour their time and extensive resources into each case that we handle for investors who have been harmed by fraud, misrepresentation, breach of fiduciary duty, unauthorized trading and related investment misconduct.
Choosing a law firm for your investment fraud case can be an overwhelming task. You only have one chance to pursue a recovery of your investment losses, and you need to make the most of that opportunity. This means being careful to avoid basing your decision solely on advertising; you should research the firm’s experience, resources, reputation, client reviews, and overall fit.
A few reasons why Meyer Wilson may be the right firm for you:
- Proven Results. Meyer Wilson has a verifiable record of proven results. We have recovered over $350 million in compensation for clients, taken on some of the world’s most powerful financial institutions, and have spearheaded major litigation in high-stakes and high-profile claims.
- Deep Resources. Doing this work every day for 20 years means we’ve cultivated relationships which add value to our clients’ cases. We’ve earned the respect of colleagues who regularly appear on the other side of our cases, and have forged positive relationships with mediators. We don’t believe these kinds of valuable relationships can be built in 3, 5 or even 10 years.
- A Small Caseload. We are not a high-volume firm. We turn down representation to more than 4 out of every 5 prospective cases. We are selective in the cases we take because we refuse to cut corners. At Meyer Wilson, every client is assigned two lawyers and a securities arbitration paralegal. We believe committing substantial resources to each case is the only way to win.
- A Full Support Staff. By employing a full team of professionals who support out day-to-day work and the administrative burdens of operating a firm, our attorneys are able to focus our time and efforts on what matters most to clients. A full support staff also means we’re highly responsive and accessible; we return calls, e-mails, and texts within 12 hours.
- Contingency Fees. We know wronged investors come to our firm after having suffered grave financial losses. Because we’re devoted to helping clients amid turbulent times, and have the available resources required of these complex claims, we handle cases on contingency fees. This simply means that we collect a fee only if we win.

Every one of our investor cases is assigned to at least two investment fraud lawyers and one securities paralegal, and is reviewed personally by Attorney David P. Meyer.
By drawing from over 120 years of collective experience, we’re able to cover your case from every possible angle. Having multiple eyes available to review claims and case strategy, especially when they are as experienced and accomplished as our own, can help further ensure you have the strongest, most effective claim possible.
