Joined the Office in 1999
Drew Meyers was born in Brooklyn, New York and grew up in North Miami Beach. He started his legal career in 1987 working in the Miami office of a large, international law firm, where he split his practice between commercial transactions and commercial litigation. In late 1992, Drew left the private sector to serve as Special Counsel to the State of Florida, assigned to the Department of Labor and Employment Security. He concurrently served as general counsel to the Florida Coordinating Council for the (then-newly enacted) Americans with Disabilities Act.
Drew joined the Broward County Attorney’s Office in 1999. He initially served as the County's Chief Appellate Counsel and later as Chief Deputy County Attorney. While at the County, he has worked on many interesting and complex trial-level, appellate, and transactional matters including the 2000 presidential election recount, lengthy litigation with the state over the Citrus Canker Eradication Program, litigation involving the County’s right to occupy Governmental Center West, and, more recently, ethics and complex solid-waste disposal matters. Drew has argued cases before most of the state’s intermediate appellate courts, the Florida Supreme Court, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.
Drew has been a certified Circuit Court mediator since 1997, and has been recognized numerous times by Florida Trend’s “Legal Elite” and similar publications.
When not working, Drew enjoys spending time with family, including his wife and their children. He also enjoys traveling and attending sporting events. He is an avid fan of the Louisville Cardinals and Florida Gators.
