After my ex-wife tried to get me to hit her and was thrown in jail for two felonies…. I was convinced the vindictive plan was over…. especially, since I was the one who helped the mother of my kids get all these charges dropped!!!! …. NOPE!!! … the dummy (persuaded by one of her many dumb attorneys) marched straight over to the police station and falsely accused the father of her children of, “hitting and choking” her. Of course, all of this was part of the “big plan” to obtain FULL CUSTODY=$. As a Fire Captain, with everything on the line I was forced to hire some help. I had no clue where to look so started with the brothers at the fire department. Ironically, Andrea had represented two firemen who I have met in the past. Both firemen told me stories of how Andrea “saved their lives”. I hired her. She didn’t just protect my kids and me from a pack of child abusing actions and false allegations …. but, also helped me hold my ex-wife accountable for her actions resulting in ZERO spousal support awards. I love telling the whole story. It’s a great one, and if it wasn’t for a genius like Andrea my kids and I would be screwed.

We trusted Andrea Mersel and the OC FAMILY law group with everything, our heart poured into this case to achieve more time with our daughter for years only to be net with incompetence and misinformation, trial after trial. We had her represent us for years and never had a win. We had every opportunity to have things go our way if only we would have had the right person represent us. Thousands of dollars wasted and plenty of heartache. Her office nickel and dimes you for absolutely everything and her paralegals are useless. They constantly made mistakes in filings and Andrea lacks fierceness in court trials.
