Andrea was great all around and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a respectable and responsible defense attorney. I told her the story and she got right on the case. She kept me posted on every update and there was a multitude of ways to communicate to her when I needed to reach her. The world of justice, judges, and attorneys overwhelmed me and the family I guided in our case and she explained the process, terms, etc. in such an easy way that was very understanding. I cannot thank Andrea enough for her efforts! I hope we don't have to go through what we did, but if I ever need her again she will be the first person I will call. From our families to you and yours...we thank you a million times, Andrea E. Mertz!
I was in real need of a good lawyer for my firearm case, because my first lawyer was MIA. When I find Andrea from the first time I was very confident of her honesty and knowledge. She did remarkable presentation in the court and she delivers above and beyond. Extremely comfortable to work with and highly professional to boot. The overall process was effortless on my part and allowed me peace of mind. She was very flexible, responsive and patient. She was also helpful in guiding and advising me in an area that I was totally unfamiliar with. She negotiated a deal and managed to drop the charges from Felony to 3rd degree misdemeanor. I Had took a No Contest Plea with 1 year probation in my case which I was supposed to do 12-24 months in Jail. I would highly recommend Andrea Mertz. The best choice ever made. 2 thumbs up
Andrea was by far the best person to represent me for my unemployment hearing. She went above and beyond her duty as an attorney to collect information for my case as well as doing whatever it took for her to represent me the right way. I would highly recommend her for any type of case. She is very easy to work with and to talk to and she actually cares about you as person and not just as her client. She will do whatever it takes to help with whatever the case may require. Andrea is very knowledgeable with the law and she uses her resources to obtain any type of information that will help in representing you for your case. She does a great job with keeping you up to date with what is going on before and even after your appearance in court. I reaIly appreciate her and her time representing me so much and I will have her represent me in any type of case if needed in the future.
I highly recommend Attorney Mertz. When meeting with her she was professional and honest. She gave examples of how she represented former clients in similar situations and the results she achieved. She was very respectful of us as her clients (purchaser of her services) by always expeditiously returning our calls and emails. She explained our options and suggested our best course of action.
Ms. Mertz represented me for a DUI charge in 2014. I had a prior DUI charge, so I knew what I wanted and needed (and didn't want or need) from an attorney. I interviewed several attorneys and decided on Ms. Mertz. If you are reading this and looking for a defense attorney, I know some of the fears, anxiety, and apprehension that you are currently feeling. You want an attorney that actually CARES about your situation - Ms. Mertz will. You want someone who will stay in contact with you and return your calls promptly - Ms. Mertz will. You want someone that will represent you to the best of their ability - Ms. Mertz will. She won't just simply fill out the paperwork and show up in court (like most other lawyers), she will actually care about you and your situation while guiding you through the legal process that you are currently facing. I couldn't have asked for more. The complexities and hypocrisies of our criminal (in)justice system can be varied, confusing, and downright frightening. You need someone like Ms. Mertz on your side.
Andrea gave me the information I needed to know to make a well informed decision on how to proceed. She gave me pros and cons of what would happen depending on the way I proceeded but in no way pressured me to act a certain way. She is knowledgeable and experienced and I would highly recommend.
Andrea took the time to ensure that I completely understood the whole process and answered all of my questions before I even agreed to hire her as my lawyer. She provided excellent service and was very thorough. It was a pleasure to have her as my lawyer.
Andrea was a treasure, and the best choice I could have made going through this process. She is forthcoming , honest, and always responsive. I always felt that she cared about myself, the case, and took any potential outcome personally. It sounds simple, but she was truly my advocate and support throughout. She knew the Berks Court House, system and key players well and was able to get the best possible resolution. I would highly recommend and encourage anyone to hire Andrea Mertz.
Andrea is a go getter attorney, best thing we did.... She doesn't really handle real estate or property issues, but took on our case. Andrea has been very helpful and full of knowledge on helping us along. She has shown determination and persistence on handling our case. Two thumbs up to her. An excellent attorney who is fair and compassionate. Really enjoy working with her.
Andrea did a great job in expediting my ARD case. All questions were answered up front and she clearly explained her intentions/obligations throughout the process. She is very easy to work with and quickly replied to all my inquiries. Although I never worked with any other lawyers in the area, I would definitely recommend she be considered for your case.
