Boston's Top Lawyers

Andrew C. Meyer, Jr. featured as one of Boston's best lawyers in Boston Magazine article



Whether the battle breaks out in a court of law or the court of public opinion, the consensus go-to guy is Andrew C. Meyer, Jr. (Suffolk Law '74). Last October, Meyer, 44, came out on the winning end of a state superior court ruling upholding a lower court's $20-million verdict against two doctors from Brigham and Women's Hospital. The doctors had been found guilty of negligence in a 1986 delivery that resulted in an infant's brain damage. The judgment, worth about $32.5 million including accrued interest, is believed to be the largest of its kind in state history. Indeed, Lubin & Meyer, and 11-lawyer boutique, has scored the state's largest malpractice awards for the last three years.

Meyer is probably best known for his role in the 1992 case against Margaret Bean-Bayog, the Harvard psychiatrist accused of conducting a love affair with her patient, a Harvard Medical School student who later committed suicide. Thanks to Meyer's masterly, albiet controversial, manipulation of the media, Bean Bayog surrendered her license, and the student's family received a $1-million insurance settlement.

Meyer's shoot-the-wounded tactics draw the criticism and respect of his colleagues in equal measure. But he seldom gives his clients reason to doubt his loyalties. During the Brigham and Women's trial, for instance, he savaged the testimony of the defense's expert witness, Henry Klapholz, Beth Israel Hospital's chief of obstetrics—and the doctor who delivered Meyer's three children. Says Meyer: "I guess if we have any more kids, we'll just have to find a new doctor."
