10 minute appointment that cost me $129.00. Only for her to basically tell me the lawyer my husband had was a very good lawyer and it would cost me $5000.00 just for her to look at my case. I already spent over $12,000.00 for a lawyer and she would not even look at the box of files I had with me. I was more than shocked that she had the nerve to even cash my check after my 10 minute interrogation from her.
Ms. Merwine handled my divorce several years ago and she was excellent. Connie was the right mix of supportive and professional through what was a very difficult time for me, and that made all the difference. Connie made the process easier for me, which was an enormous help and something I did not expect to find in an attorney.
I own one of the largest divorce mediation companies in the US. I have to preface this review by saying that Connie is NOT part of my company and we have no financial ties. This is because my company is not in NE PA. With that said, as part of my divorce business, I meet and assess divorce lawyers across Pa and NJ. Of the attorneys I work with, I have found Connie Merwine to be one of the most honest, yet assertive family attorneys in the state. Divorcing couples are vulnerable. Most family attorneys like to fuel the problems and this is bad for families and good for lawyers. Connie is different. She puts her clients best interests first. If a case can be resolved amicably and inexpensively, Connie will take advantage of that for her client. But if that is not possible, Connie is very bright and very experienced and is well regarded for these attributes by other attorneys and Judges. Perhaps this is why she is so effective, i.e., because she is very good and very honest, so she has the respect she needs to get excellent outcomes for her clients. As a lawyer with many contacts w/family lawyers across PA, I would trust Connie to represent me if I resided in N-E PA.
Attorney Merwine is highly intelligent and well versed in the area of family law. Her ability to analyze the facts of a particular case is very impressive. I have seen her in court and find that she is a tremendous advocate for her clients, and genuinely interested in the well being and overall cause for each and every client. I highly recommend her to anyone with a question or issue involving family law.
We have and will continue to recommend Connie to friends and acquaintances.
Connie J Merwine is of the highest integrity that i have seen. I would highly recommend her and her firm.
Connie has been both involved directly with my firm in local real estate transactions as well as represented our clients on personal & domestic issues. We have referred many a happy client to Connie, and will continue to do so. She has a great ability to "cut through the mustard" when it counts most, and draw realistic pictures.
Connie did some work for me and my family and I found her to be knowledgeable, professional, and caring. I would highly recommend Connie Merwine for your estate issues.
The loss of a loved one is always difficult, and when we discovered the complicated disaster of my parent's financial matters, Connie came to our rescue. She and her staff were fantastic in expediting matters after the passing of my mother, and then 8 months later, my father as well. I highly recommend consulting with Merwine & Associates for any area of law expertise.
