David P. Meyer is the founder and managing principal of the firm. David is a financial fraud attorney with more than twenty years of experience in federal and state trial courts and arbitration cases.
David has the honor of winning a record-breaking $261 million class action jury verdict [add link to verdict form] against Prudential Securities on behalf of 200 retirees. David filed the class action lawsuit back in 1999 when he was 29 years old. After a seven-year court battle against Prudential, including two appeals, every one of the retirees in the class action recovered 100% of their losses and their attorneys’ fees. Since that case, over 1,000 individual investors from across the country have trusted David with their investor claims and he has won verdicts, judgments, and settlements of millions of dollars on their behalf.
As further demonstration of David’s strong leadership, experience, and strong reputation, he has been elected to lead three separate plaintiff bar associations, including the Public Investors Advocate Bar Association (PIABA), the national association of lawyers who represent individual investors in cases of investment fraud; and the Ohio Association for Justice, Ohio’s statewide bar of trial lawyers.
David is the author of the Amazon #1 Best-Seller, The Investor Protector; Stories of Triumph of Financial Advisors Who Lie, Cheat and Steal. He wrote the book to help prevent hard-working retirement savers from becoming victims of investment fraud and to share his experiences of cases he has handled over the past 20 years. The book is available on Amazon. Following the release of the book, more than a dozen podcast hosts have invited David as a guest to talk about the book and his career as an investment fraud lawyer.
David continues to receive the highest recognition from the legal community. He was once again awarded "Lawyer of the Year" in his practice area and location by Best Lawyers® for 2022 and has been recognized by “Best Lawyers” and “Super Lawyers” from 2011-2022.
