The representation that we received from Dean Merten helped my daughter avoid a misdemeanor conviction that could have been a potential set back in her future. He was very thorough and knowledgeable and we felt like we were in good hands immediately. I would strongly recommend his services.

Dean is very knowledgeable and highly focused. Whenever I called him he knew exactly what was happening with my case and how to proceed. He's also got great negotiating skills. I was really impressed with him.

Best defense I could have asked for and at a price that beat everyone else.
Cost was important to me especially as all other attorneys I spoke with offered just about the same advise. Dean Merten was different. He listened, explained my options, helped walk me off the ledge :) and all before I hired him.
He fought all the way through for me and the outcome was better than any of the other lawyers were willing to even consider. I highly recommend Dean Merten and would hire him again in a heartbeat, although hopefully won't ever need to )!
