Andrew C. Meyer, Jr.
Recognized by Boston Magazine as the city's most prolific medical malpractice attorney, and recently profiled in The Huffington Post, Andrew C. Meyer, Jr. has consistently achieved record-setting verdicts and settlements, including one of the largest personal injury awards in Massachusetts’ history — $30 million including interest in a birth injury lawsuit.
His extraordinary professional accomplishments and compelling influence on the field of medical malpractice won him the distinction of being named one of the most influential lawyers in the state by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly. Martindale-Hubbell’s well-respected national directory of lawyers has consistently awarded Meyer its highest rating for legal ability and its highest rating for ethical standards.
For 25 consecutive years, he has been selected for inclusion in the widely recognized The Best Lawyers in America—the universally accepted guide to legal excellence. He has the additional distinction of being listed in Super Lawyers each year since 2004. Selected Boston’s Medical Malpractice Lawyer of the Year in 2011 by Best Lawyers®, his cases are often cited for their novel and precedent-setting issues.
Meyer is an outspoken advocate for patient safety whose law firm plays an important role as a check on the powerful local medical establishment. In a 2019 exposé, "The Secret Truth About Boston Doctors," Boston Magazine described Meyer and his firm as the consumer protection bureau known as a last line of defense against an often indifferent and sometimes dangerous medical regime. Through the courts, his team works to impose change on the medical community by requiring case settlements to include specific improvements to hospital policies and systems.
