Paul E. Meyer has more than 40 years of experience as a practicing attorney. Mr. Meyer has a general civil practice with an emphasis in matrimonial and family Law. As a trained mediator since 2000 and a collaborative law practitioner since 2001, Mr. Meyer has promoted these alternatives for settling divorces and other family law matters. Mr. Meyer has lectured at continuing legal education seminars on pensions and divorce, and other family law matters, for the New York State Bar Association, Monroe County Bar Association, and Oneida County Bar Association.
Mr. Meyer is a past president of the Collaborative Law Association of the Rochester Area, Inc., and a past chair of the Family Law Section of the Monroe County Bar Association. For many years, he has served as an Attorney for the Child (attorney representing children appointed by the court), and has been a speaker at the A.C.T. (Assisting Children Through Transition) program.
Mr. Meyer represents clients inside and outside of the court system, but he is committed to collaborative law and mediation as they are non-adversarial processes that assist individuals going through divorces in resolving their differences by creating productive and healthy solutions for themselves and their children.
A significant portion of Mr. Meyer’s practice is devoted to facilitating the division of pension assets in divorce through what are commonly known as Domestic Relations Orders, and he handles these matters for his own clients as well as for the clients of other attorneys who seek his assistance. His experience includes all types of pensions, including private corporation, state, federal and military plans.
