Celebrating Our 4th Anniversary as Meyerkord, Russell & Hergott

In 2014, Meyerkord, Russell & Hergott was founded when Nick Hergott joined Brian Russell and Matt Meyerkord. Since then, we’ve worked hard to help our clients make right the wrong that’s been done to them.

We pride ourselves on being good guys who treat our clients with respect, listen to their story, and handle their case in a way that prepares them for what lies ahead. Along the way we are non-judgmental and straightforward, acting with boldness when needed.
