Myer has been a member of the Maine Bar for nearly 75 years, and until his retirement at age 91 in 2005, was the state's most senior active practitioner. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of Maine people, business, and legal affairs. The United States District Court for the District of Maine recently asked Myer to sit for a videographer and make a tape relating his experiences in practicing law in Maine. He did so, and is the star of a fascinating, five hour show that is now part of the Court’s archives. For those who know Myer, five hours will seem like a brief conversation, and indeed time flies when listening to this man. In the first edition of this website, we asked whether Myer was a relic at age 85. Now, in his late 90s, we have the answer: No, and it was very impertinent of us to have suggested the same. No one brings wisdom and perspective to life and the law, and the history of practice in Maine, as well as Myer
