Honorable Man
I hired Mr. Meroueh for my son’s DUI. He showed up in Detroit 36th district court and got necessary disclosures. I was pleased with outcome, even though my son had to accept a plea. If you’ve ever been in that court, the Judge is hard on everybody. They show no favoritism. However, Mr. Meroueh did his very best and my son didn’t get a suspension or jail time.

Great lawyer
How do I start , this firm is such a great phone from the front office to meeting with Mr.Meroueh himself , I had a bunch of civil infractions in the Madison heights and Detroit area I met with them and they got to work within the next day , the day of my court date I received a called from my lawyer he assured me his colleague will handle everything accordingly due to my situation moral of story as much doubt as I had , I was equited I love and will continue to do business with them I'm being very brief while trying to express detail that this is the man that I will have in life for a long time thank you & I though having a lawyer would be expensive this company works with you and is very reasonable with prices .

Great Lawyer
I unexpectedly got caught up in an ugly land-contract dispute which required me to lawyer up. At first, I honestly only chose to hire Odey based on his office location which was very convenient for me. I'm so glad I chose this guy. From day one Odey made me feel like a longtime friend. He was very honest, professional, and very clear when he explained the approach he was going to take. My case was quite complicated and included several different parties but Odey was very comforting yet remained realistic about what I was facing and the task ahead. He kept me in the loop throughout the process and always returned my calls/messages promptly which made me feel as if I was his only case. Eventually, he helped clear up my deed and completely took care of this issue. I honestly can't say enough about how great this guy is!

Excellent communicator, very professional and efficient.
My experience with Mr. Meroueh was pleasant from start to finish. He was able to answer all of my questions in a concise and meaningful way. All my fears about "hiring a lawyer" flew out the window when I hired Mr. Meroueh. I would HIGHLY recommend utilizing his services if and when you need them.

The best!
Mr Odey saved my life. He is amazing at what he does. When was the last time you could put your full trust in an attorney. I was hesitant and scared at first but he failed to let me down in any way!

Hard-Working and Smart Lawyer
People like Mr Meroueh are rare nowadays. He takes pride in his work and cares about the people he's helping. I could always count on his advisement to be in my best interests. He is a hard working and sharp guy and will always have my business.

Satisfied Client
Odey helped me out of a tough jam, and I will forever be grateful to him. He is a great and trustworthy lawyer. He was extremely helpful and was easily able to resolve my case in a timely manner. He answers his phone calls right away, if he can, but if not, he calls or texts you back almost immediately. If ever the need arises where I need a lawyer again, Odey is my one and only phone call.

Very rude and not trustworthy
Odey K. Meroueh is a horrible greedy and unprofessional lawyer. Don’t even think of wasting your money and your nerves dealing with this looser. He handled my case, never responded to my emails and phone calls. He kept lying and lying for over 13 months and at the end I got nothing. Go to a lawyer you can put your trust in and treat you with respect.
