  • Richard Vinson Merritt

    Tom possesses wisdom and common-sense seldom found in younger lawyers. He also has amassed great "in the trenches" experience that makes him very effective, efficient, knowledgeable and skilled in his practice areas. I highly recommend him for any transactional matter or commercial litigation or real estate litigation matter.
