Brit is simply the best ! I hired Brit in connection for DUI , it was my first offense. I was scared, nervous and felt overwhelmed . When I say Brit is the best , I do not use that phrase lightly. Brit was amazing to say the least . She was the lifeline I needed . Trying to figure where to even start to navigate the seemly rocky waters of our legal system can be daunting .
I feel extremely fortunate That I had Brit on my side . Right from our first meeting Brit put me at ease. She explained everything I needed to know in terms I could understand. In court , Brit spoke with a sense of confidence , eloquence , grace and sophistication. Brit's technical expertise is exceptional. She understands legal strategy at the highest level, is a masterful tactician and an artful negotiator. Brit worked tirelessly on behalf. She was always meticulously prepared for our meetings and Court. She definitely has a passion for her job . Every time we met, Brit always displayed a sense of positive energy .
Brit loves her job and this came through at all times. However, the one thing that stood out that makes her fantastic is her human touch. Brit never forgets she is dealing with a person , often scared and overwhelmed. The one word I would use to sum it all up is this, caring . Brit cares. She is a human being who cares to help out other human beings in moments of their greatest difficulty . I will never be able to adequately thank Brit for all that she did on my behalf. Simply said, she is the BEST !
I highly recommend Brit. She is extremely respected in her work. I was charged with a first time dui and she helped get it down to a negligent driving in the first degree. She was great through the whole process. Very trustworthy, professional, confident, and intelligent. You can't go wrong with her!
I referred Brit a client with a VERY difficult set of facts and some unusual circumstances. Brit did a great job of explaining to my client the process the case would go through and counseled patience while she attempted to negotiate a creative resolution. Over the next six months, Brit was able to convince the prosecutors office to enter into a very unique case resolution that took into account the unusual circumstances involved. My client was extremely happy and incredibly relieved with the outcome that Brit obtained for him.
I can't imagine a better lawyer to get me through my DUI problems. I was referred to Briteney by my father's attorney and immediately knew she was the right choice. She explained everything that we'd be going through and was always great about keeping in touch or providing me with answers whenever I needed them. Super communicative and helpful, even when I needed help in legal things that weren't quite her department. For what was actually a really scary and troubling time, Briteney took a lot of the stress away. I've already recommended her to friends that have been through the same ordeal and I would definitely recommend her to anybody else in the same boat. She gets the job done!
I'm not going to mince words. I did a lot of research. I had two DUI's within about 12 months and I was prepared for the worst. Brit and her team did MORE than their share and in return I did mine. I found a non-profit I deeply care for and I learned a lot about what it meant to be dependent on someone whose help I deeply needed. This is a star of a human. Smart. Maybe the best in town. Treat her with deep respect and I can tell you that she will give 110% for you. Be clear. This is NOT your typical firm for these kinds of cases. This is a pro firm. And Brit is at the top of the stack. Exemplary? Yes. And then some.
Brit did a great job. I recommend her without reservation. The prosecutor outright dismissed the assault charges due to the powerful evidence of self defense that Brit skillfully, patiently, doggedly and persuasively presented. She's great.
Briteney walked me through my first (and only) DUI incident. She was very professional and understanding of my situation. She truly cared about my well being and had the expert knowledge and skills to win my case. She did everything she could to ensure I was walking into the best possible scenario regarding my trial. Truly an amazing lawyer!
Professional, dedicated and attentive... Briteney and her wonderful staff (shout-out to Jen!) took care of absolutely everything so I could move on with my life, knowing full-well my case was in good hands. When it came to court I had no idea what to expect, but Briteney and her team were on their game and performed with reputable acuity. Without over-promising, Briteney got my sentence reduced well beyond my expectations. I couldn't be more relieved and happy with the service I received. Thank you so much Briteney & Co... you truly are a life saver!
Our daughter was charged with a DUI in fall 2010, just before returning to school for her senior year in college. After a careful interview process, Briteney Mercer was selected for legal representation because of her strong credentials, vigor, and clear, step-by-step explanation of the dui process. Briteney's positive disposition and ability to relate to our daughter also strongly influenced the decision, which was ultimately made by our daughter. As our daughter's case worked itself through the justice system, Briteney kept us informed and explained the best strategy for reducing the charge. Nonetheless, this was a period of considerable anxiety because the ambitious plans our daughter had following graduation seemed to be very much in jeopardy. It was with great relief, then, when Briteney was able to work with the prosecutor to have the charge reduced to reckless driving, and then convinced the judge to have our daughter complete 50 hours of community service in the city where she was going to school and planning to stay following graduation. Our daughter learned a very valuable lesson, and she can now move on at this important stage of her life. We and our daughter are very thankful to Briteney Mercer for everything she has done.
Brit is an excellent attorney! She is knowledgeable and has the resources needed to successfully defend your case! I was originally stopped speeding on a motorcycle and eventually blew a .17 back at the police station. This was my first time dealing with any legal issues, and I really didnâ€™t know what to expect. I was extremely worried and concerned about my reputation, and thatâ€™s why I spared no expense in regards to my defense. Brit was comforting, and although she couldnâ€™t actually guarantee everything would work out in my favor, she was more than confident she could represent me successfully. She was able to get my breath test results thrown out, and won my DOL hearing which I believe roughly only 30% of people are successful in doing so against the DOL. When given the option, I was happy to plead down to a reckless driving under my circumstances. There is nothing on my driving or criminal record to reflect a DUI, and I owe it all to Briteney for her hard work!
I would recommend Brit to any friends or family, and although I hope I never need to, she will be the first person I call if any other legal issues arise. I truly know that picking an attorney is a very important decision, and I assure you that you will not regret giving Brit the opportunity to represent you!
