Firm Overview

Since 1974, Meyer & Njus has specialized in legal matters related to business, business litigation and consumer collections.

Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with offices in Illinois and Michigan, Meyer & Njus serves businesses nationwide. Manufacturers, retailers, banks, corporations and collection agencies, regardless of their size, have come to rely on Meyer & Njus for timely, results-driven legal services.

Our relationships with our clients run deep. That is why many of them also count on us for personal legal advice on estate planning and administration, family law, personal injury law, and more. That is also why they feel confident referring other businesses and individuals to our firm.

Long Term Relationship

Personal relationships are the foundation of sound legal counsel. Our skilled attorneys are committed to taking the time to understand each client’s particular situation and provide them with thoughtful, knowledgeable advice. Whatever their need, whether it is personal or professional, we see ourselves as partners in our clients’ success.

Enduring Client Focus

Meyer & Njus has experienced impressive growth over the years. We believe this is because we have demonstrated nearly 30 years of unwavering commitment to our clients. Many of our attorneys and professional staff have been with us a long time, and the relationships they have with our clients now transcend the typical client relationship.

Exceeding Client Expectations

When we founded the firm in 1974, we set out to exceed expectations with every client. We succeed time and again by building long-term relationships based on trust, and providing reasoned judgment and cost-effective counsel. Our growth has been achieved primarily through referrals, which is a testament to our firm’s commitment to our clients.

Client Loyalty

Clients of Meyer & Njus are loyal because they know we have their best interests at heart. They know they will not be lead down a path toward a drawn-out dispute or litigation, or toward an outcome that isn’t in their best interest just to generate revenue for the firm.

Our clients appreciate that we involve them in deciding what action to take. We help them understand the possibilities and potential pitfalls they might encounter. Our firm believes strongly in – and has been successful at — resolving legal matters outside of the courtroom. This saves our clients money and time. However, if litigation becomes necessary, we are not afraid to proceed vigorously on our clients’ behalf.

Dedication to Excellence

Meyer & Njus places great emphasis on integrity and commitment to excellence in the legal profession. In 2003, James Njus was recognized for the fifth time as a Super Lawyer by the Minnesota Journal of Law and Politics. He was selected by peers who have personally observed him in action, whether as opposing counsel, as co-counsel, or from first-person observation in the courtroom.

Meyer & Njus prides itself in adhering to the highest ethical standards in representing its clients. Neil Meyer is very involved in ethics in the legal profession and was appointed by the Minnesota Supreme Court to serve on the Lawyers Professional Responsibility Board. In 1999, he was named by the Supreme Court as Lawyers Professional Responsibility Volunteer of the Year.

All members of the firm are actively involved in pro bono activities and serve on various boards.
