Our Legal Legacy.

The law firm of Meyer Capel, A Professional Corporation was founded when August C. Meyer, Jr. and James L. Capel, Jr. began practicing law together in the early 1960s. Their fathers had been attorneys in the Champaign-Urbana community since the 1920s.

Over the years, Meyer Capel, has grown steadily in both size and stature. Today, the firm is the largest, most diversified law firm in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, offering its clients a range of services and a legal presence unequaled by any other law firm in the area.

Much of the firm's growth can be attributed to a solid commitment to respond quickly, accurately, and efficiently to the needs and desires of its clients. Meyer Capel employs over 30 attorneys, each a respected member of the legal community and each dedicated to providing the highest caliber of legal advice and services. Meyer Capel attorneys are active on the local, county, and state levels; three are past presidents of the Champaign County Bar Association.
