Best law firm for divorce case
You can’t find a better law firm. They go above and beyond to protect client’s rights. Attorney Fiza Syed is really caring and tries her best to find the best solution to help her client. I am so happy that I decided to follow my friend’s advice to retain Merchant law firm for my complicated divorce case.

Cares about your case and you as a person
Divorce lawyers wear many hats, legal rep, grief Counsler, therapist, all because divorce is possibly one of the worst experiences you can go through besides death. I went through all that and more. Fiza not only gave me superior legal representation but she gave me compassion, patience and emotional support that I don’t believe many lawyers are capable of. There were times I was in a panic with the drama of my divorce and I would just be an emotional hot mess. Fiza helped me through all of it. She went above and beyond to help me not only legally but as a human. She was there for me throughout it all, through my anxiety driven 2am texts, to my emotional breakdowns, through everything. Divorce is not easy but mine was the worst you can have. Fiza got me the settlement I needed, fought for me in court and got me through even though she had many other clients and cases, she was always there for me. I can’t recommend her enough.

Custody
I contacted For a consultation with Mrs Fiza I got her assistant Mr Frank, he was very kind and very helpful, explaining the meaning of legal terms and the possibilities on my case. He was very patient, compassionate with my case trying help me, he was being very honest, straight forward, realistic in my case. Also Mrs Fiza. I’m glad still exist good honest compassion and professional lawyer and assistant attorney. This is an example of being professional and respectful to the clients/people. I will work again if needed with Mr Frank and Mrs Fiza. I totally recommend.

Nice Person
I contacted Fiza Syed to handle my separation and divorce. During that time I also asked her to take a personal injury case. I highly recommend Fiza for any legal needs you may have. You will always get a prompt response to any call or email and you will be kept well informed throughout the process. On top of excellent legal help you will get a nice person. Contact her first!

Put her heart in case
There have been very few times in my life when I have felt that there was 'no way out' of a mess. That time came when my grown daughter got caught in a messy divorce and I felt that the future of my grandchild's safety and security were at stake. When we discovered the abuse our daughter and granddaughter had been living in daily at the hands of our double faced son-in-law we were propelled into action, but didn't know where to even begin. Thankfully, a friend told me about Fiza. Fiza uses her talent, billiance, and wisdom in the entire legal process to guide you through all of the pitfalls that lurch in the legal industry, a flawed, blood thirsty, greedy industry that families are supposed to turn to for help in time of need. Fiza put a face and a heart to the entire process and literally saved my family with her guidance and intelligent maneuvering, humanizing the entire system for us. I will use Fiza for any legal issues I may ever have in my life that she wants to take on... She is part of the family now.

Get my work done
Fiza Syed was supportive throughout my difficult case. I really felt that she was fighting for what was best for my child and despite obstacles faced she helped guide me through the difficult and scary court process. Pricing was also very fair. I would absolutely hire her again.

Divorce
Divorce is one of the most difficult thing you will go through ever! Fiza Syed was mine and my current wife's third experience with attorneys, we both wish they had been our first. As much as you want your case to be decided on what she/he did to you, it won't be. As much as you want to get the last word/e-mail/text in don't do it, listen to the Fiza Syed team it's not worth it. case's are decided on the law, and in the end, believe it or not "this too will pass". Fiza Syed knows the law, let them help you, listen to them, and although you may not feel like you got everything "You Wanted", you will be represented by a team that is interested in doing what is ethical as well as in the best interest of the client. Over a year later, we still call on their firm if we have any issues with our settlement. We would use them again, and recommend them every time we are asked who we used, or who we would use. We consider Merchant Law PLLC as very special people in our lives, without her help we would not have the time with our kids that we have today.

I called for a consultation and they walked me through the whole step. Instead of just trying to get money out of me they opted to help me get it resolved on my own with their help. You won’t regret choosing this law firm!

Very knowledgeable with reliable and skilled paralegals.
I would contact Fiza Syed anytime I'm in need of representation. I contacted the law firm regarding my divorce proceedings and they provided step by step information about the entire process. They're very attentive and tell it to you like it is without hiding any fact. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants the best legal representation and wants results delivered.
