She was a very great attorney when mine and my brothers attorneys changed constantly she was appointed to our case and stuck by us every step of the way. I am very grateful for everything she did for us.

Ms. Merritt extended herself in a timely fashion to our emergency situation and effected the procuring of the safety and responsible guardianship of the minor at risk, our grandson.
Time and again she went above and beyond ordinary service expectations to assure a good outcome to our case.

My husband and I retained Ms Merritt to help us gain custody of our grandson. She provided us with excellent legal advice and handled our case very competently. She went out of her way to meet our grandson and reassure him during a time when he was frightened and confused. Her calm, compassionate demeanor with us guided us through unfamiliar legal terrain and provided us with reassurance and hope during an upsetting and confusing time. Thanks to her skill, knowledge and resourcefulness, we gained custody of our grandson and removed him from an abusive situation. I would highly recommend Ms. Merritt as a skilled, knowledgeable and compassionate advocate.
