Exceeding client expectations

When we founded the firm in 1981, 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 Tanick 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

We place great emphasis on integrity and commitment to excellence in and beyond the legal profession.

Our attorneys are consistently recognized by their peers for providing excellent legal services. Each year, a number of our attorneys are named “Super Lawyers” or “Rising Stars” by Minnesota Law & Politics. We feature a former “Attorney of the Year” award recipient and an attorney recognized as one of the “Top 100” lawyers in Minnesota. 

Coinciding with our commitment to excellent results, Meyer Njus Tanick prides itself on adhering to the highest ethical standards in representing its clients. Shareholder Neil Meyer is heavily 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, committees, or volunteer with various nonprofits.
