  • Suzanne D'Aunoy Meehle

    Merrell Bailey and her partner Hallie Zobel are the only two estate planning and probate attorneys I refer to. Merrell is simply the best, most creative estate planning attorney in Central Florida. I refer all of my small business clients to her firm.

  • Kari Dawn Coultis

    I endorse this lawyer. I have an opportunity to see Merrell several times each year at different continuing education events, and I always enjoy brainstorming with her on various case-related issues, as well as marketing and practice development ideas. She is a very knowledgable attorney and a great person!
