Client Testimonials

Most criminal defense attorneys are going to tell you they’re aggressive.  We all need to be.  At Meyer Van Severen, S.C. we don’t use generic and outdated terms to describe our attorneys.  We believe that our precise, intelligent focus allows us to provide criminal defense representation at a level beyond simply “aggressive.”

Our law firm is dedicated to aggressive representation but we strive for more.  Our smart criminal defense strategies allow us to more effectively achieve the results you seek.  The skill and dedication of your defense attorney will have an impact on your criminal case.  Any defense lawyer can run into a courtroom and cause a ruckus, but not anyone can focus that energy on getting you results. We’ve achieved positive results for hundreds of clients.  Our clients have consistently reported positive feedback after working with our firm.  For a brief review of a few of those positive experiences, review our testimonials page, or visit our Google+ page.  

Matthew R. Meyer and Benjamin Van Severen are dedicated to criminal defense.  We don’t do divorces, business representation, or small claims.  If you need a lawyer to review that contract, we’re not the firm that’s going to help you.  Our 100% focus on criminal defense allows us to dedicate all of our firm’s resources to defending the criminally accused.  We don’t follow the developments in divorce law because that’s not what’s going to keep you out of jail.  You’re looking for the best criminal defense attorney – the other things simply don’t matter.  We believe that this precise focus allows us to deliver better, more positive results for clients.

Drunk driving law is a sub-category of criminal defense.  Both areas of law share important constitutional protections.  But OWI defense requires additional knowledge.  Meyer is a member of the National College of Drunk Driving Defense.  We keep current on all issues involved in drunk driving law to make sure that you’re protected.  Not all criminal defense attorneys can defend your drunk driving case.  We can.

If you’ve been accused of committing a crime, call Meyer Van Severen, S.C.  The charges you face are serious.  Your criminal defense attorney should be too.
