Information Sought on Cases Handled By George Stivers Meyer
We are sad to announce that long-time Denver attorney George Stivers Meyer, registration number 8002, died unexpectedly in California last month while hiking in the Berkeley Hills with two friends from his childhood days. Recently, his practice has included plaintiff’s employment law cases, mental health defense, and guardian ad litem cases as Court Appointed Counsel for the Denver Probate Court.
