Tahira worked tirelessly on my case against the Fort Worth Dioceses and was willing to do whatever it took to get the information and case into the forefront of the justice system!! She has the knowledge and the gusto to go after the "big" fish so to speak and is unwilling to let the plantiff off easily!! Would hire her again in a heartbeat!!

Tahira handled my child abuse case and did an excellent job. The abuse had taken place over 20 years prior. She is a caring attorney who will not allow you to be re-victimized. Thank you Tahira, for what you did for me and continue to do for others.

Tahira Merritt had the utmost professionalism in dealing with my case. I had a secret for 25 years and decided it was time to face my Goliath, past sexual abuse by a catholic priest. This sin is toxic and had permeated all my relationships and caused severe health problems. After doing some research, Tahira's name kept coming up.
I found her level of professionalism and capacity to identify with abuse survivors to be key to my continued recovery to this day. She has had significant experience in helping abuse survivors like me navigate the process--not a trivial matter as the system isn't much in our favor. Additionally, she is skilled in navigating the tactics of the diocese of dallas (and other dioceses for that matter) and the catholic church, whose actions further victimize a survivor during this process. Make no mistake, no one should do this on their own or confront abusers by themselves. Contrary to what is said in the papers and on TV about how the church "hurts for victims of abuse", they use every tactic to further demean abuse victims. You need someone who knows what they will do and anticipate their next move.
I would highly recommend Tahira as counsel to anyone that is in need of help with a sexual abuse case.

Tahira handled our personal injury case with the utmost respect for our privacy and emotional health. She made a very difficult situation easier with her vast knowledge of the situation and her compassion for us. She extended her assistance to all members of our family. Tahira has a great passion for the work she does with victims of sexual abuse.

Tahira successfully litigated a personal injury case in my behalf. Although the case seemed to take a while (normal)...Tahira made it pleasant and put me at ease since I was new to this process as a first time plaintiff. I completely trust her judgement, expertise and would also consider her the subject matter expert in her area of specialization.
In addition, the staff in her office is approachable, efficient and show genuine concern for the clients.
I would not hesitate to hire her again, if I should ever have a need.

Tahira supported me through the entire process. I felt like a person and not just a client. She was very understanding and great at explaining the process and describing what to expect. Tahira was ten times the counselor I expected and helped me get a settlement more than twice what I thought I was going to recieve.
