Meuers Law Firm promotes Nurenberg and De Falco

Meuers Law Firm, one of the leading law firms in the country providing legal services to the produce industry, announced the advancement of two attorneys, Steven E. Nurenberg and Steven M. De Falco, to member status with the firm.

Nurenberg brings more than 20 years of experience to every case he handles. According to a press release, his analytical skills afford him the ability to recognize an approach that may not have been considered, and to view an issue from all sides.

Steven-E-NurenbergSteven E. Nurenberg"Steve has the innate ability to interpret a client’s difficulty and to communicate his client’s position in a concise and accurate manner," the firm said in a press release. "Steve builds relationships with his clients, who come to trust and rely upon his incisive legal advice. Steve has achieved a legal ability rating of 'A' (very high to preeminent) and a general ethical standards rating of 'V,' the highest possible ratings by the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory."

 Nurenberg counsels clients in litigation matters, including trust enforcement cases under the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act and disputes between produce companies in federal courts, and formal and informal reparation cases before the PACA Division of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Prior to joining firm in 2006, Nurenberg was a partner in a 90-attorney Detroit firm. He earned his J.D. from Detroit College of Law (Michigan State University) in 1989.

For nearly 10 years, he has built lasting relationships with clients and works to maintain strong, collegial legal relationships, as well. He is respected, both in the produce and legal communities, for his ability to develop successful outcomes, avoiding costly litigation whenever possible."

De Falco’s practice includes representation in PACA trust enforcement cases under the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act, and the resolution of disputes with other produce companies, in both federal and bankruptcy courts, and in formal and informal reparation cases, before the PACA Division of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

He has developed a legal expertise pertaining to the transportation of produce and related issues, and counsels clients regarding compliance with PACA statutes and regulations involving sales contracts. De Falco earned his J.D. from John Marshall Law School in Chicago in 2003. He grew up in Chicago, where his family was involved in the trucking business. He joined the firm in 2004.
