In 1969 – 43 years ago – Joseph P. Meissner began his career as an attorney at The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland. Mr. Meissner has announced he will retire in August 2012.
Prior to his tenure at Legal Aid, Mr. Meissner graduated as valedictorian from Xavier University. He went on to Harvard Law School in 1963 where he co-chaired the Civil Rights Committee and co-edited the Harvard Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Law Review. He still serves as his Harvard Law class secretary today. He served in the US Army in Vietnam and received a Bronze Star for service and two Army commendation medals. He continued to serve in the Army Reserves, eventually achieving the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel.
At Legal Aid, he assisted both community groups who serve low-income populations and thousands of individuals in need. He provided legal services related to incorporation, contracts, utilities and regulation. Today, Mr. Meissner is a senior attorney in Legal Aid’s Consumer Law practice group – and focuses on foreclosure and other consumer rights cases.
