I rarely leave reviews, but my experience with Attorney Mervate compels me to do so. She handled my divorce case exceptionally well. Against all odds, she negotiated a settlement agreement that did not place undue financial stress upon me. As a result, I have been able to start a new life with a clean slate and without resentment toward my ex-wife. I can honestly say that Attorney Mervate had my best interest in mind and was great with communication while she negotiated an amicable resolution to my divorce.

I am extremely pleased with all the work Mervate did on behalf of Myself (and My Children). I was always able to communicate with her either via telephone, email, text or in person and when not she made sure to respond to me at her earliest possible date. Grant it my situation was an ideal one towards the end, but I am pleased with the outcome she was able to get for me. I will not hesitate in referring or recommending any family or friends in need of legal services to Mervate.

Mervate is a great attorney. She manages to balance her full workload to give each client her full attention. Mervate advocates for each client's rights while remaining efficient and realistic on the likely results of each case and not allowing the clients to over-spend their budgets.

I first met Mervate when she came into a contested child custody, visitation, and guardianship proceeding in which I was already involved. Frankly, her client stood little chance of prevailing before she came into the case, because the law and the facts did not favor him. Mervate gave her client the advice, both legal and factual, he needed to obtain much of the relief he wanted. I am certain her efforts led to the results obtained. Since then we have shared legal advice on a number of topics. I am always impressed by her preparation, experience and knowledge. I happily recommend that people consult and retain her.
