We are proud to announce that Mike Meyer has been named Ingram’s 40 Under 40 for 2021. Read his well deserved award summary below:
Trial lawyers, like World War II veterans, aren’t inclined to talk about what they’ve seen in battle. A certain air of maturity is required, especially in medical malpractice law, where outcomes may bring financial resolution, but never a full restoration of what’s been lost. And Mike Meyer, say the law-firm leaders at Bartimus Frickleton Robertson & Rader, has that maturity in spades. It’s one of many traits that have helped him secure tens of millions of dollars for clients harmed by someone else’s conduct. “From an early age, I knew I wanted to be a lawyer,” Meyer says. “I wanted to help people. I was raised with the belief that giving back is paramount to a balanced life, and that ‘service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.’ (Muhammad Ali). Secondly, I wanted a profession where I was constantly learning.” The son of two college professors, he developed a love of learning early, and even now, it “fuels me when I am studying medical concepts, reconstructing a complex product, or learning nuanced areas of the law,” says Meyer, 36. A KU graduate who earned his law degree at UMKC, Meyer is already racking in prestigious awards, including the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association’s Thomas Conway Award for excellence in advocacy while exercising professional decorum. He’s also been voted a Super Lawyer by his peers for three years running. An avid Kansas City sports fan, golfer, and aspiring chef, he’s an Eagle Scout whose service record has benefitted Variety Children’s Charity, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the Red Cross, Pleasant Green Baptist Church and the board for Kansas City Volunteer Lawyers and Accountants for the Arts.
