My bf was charged with his 3rd DUI, felony guns charges, and other things. The situation did not look good, at all. Having two young children, I was mortified the outcome of this situation. Our case went on for long duration, Andrea always kept us well informed. She was able to get charges dismissed, that I strongly believe other lawyers wouldn't have been able to get dropped. I could write a book here, but I still find it very emotional for me. In the end my bf did 3 months, and is now on probation, which isn't anything compared to the MANY, MANY YEARS he would of had. I was the one to find Andrea, for my BF, I will be forever grateful for her, as will my family. If you want someone whose strong, passionate, and extremely knowledgeable, I'd choose Andrea. I know first hand, choosing someone for yours, or your loved ones fate, is crucial. Also, it doesn't hurt that she is always dressed super cute, and very well put together, she's a tiny little thing, but explosive! Thank You, ANDREA!!!

I was referred to Andrea Mertz through word of mouth. After consulting with her I felt comfortable with her knowledge of the law and experience and hired her to represent me. She was professional, reliable and easy to communicate with. She was able to get my charges dismissed and did so with ease during my court hearing. I highly recommend her to anyone who is in need of an honest and caring attorney.

we hired Ms. Mertz to handle a very simple civil matter. After taking our money and putting up a good front she stopped contacting us in regards to our case. Even worse, she didn't notify us we had lost our case until after the time to appeal had expired, then after reviewing court records we discovered that she didn't enter pertinent evidence into the record after we paid her to do so. We currently have complaints in with the bar association and are considering a legal malpractice case. I would not recommend hiring the person, if its a criminal case you'll be sitting in jail while she's cashing your check.

I have known Andrea since the time I began practicing law and in that time I have known Andrea to be a highly effective and passionate criminal defense attorney. Not only does she truly care about her clients and their well-being, but she thoroughly knows the law and aggressively advocates for her clients at all levels of their representation. I would have no hesitation in recommending Andrea Mertz to anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney.
