Posted by Darcy
I am a veteran teacher who was falsely accused of three counts of rape in the third degree. As a mother, a professional and a community member I was devastated and in complete shock. Originally, I hired a different attorney but my brother did his research and encouraged me to make a change to Brad. This was the best decision I have made in the last decade. Brad diligently researched my case and provided the most professional advice every step of the way. I was extremely emotional and quite honestly lost my will to live. Brad did offer a kind gentle support, but he did not let me get distracted. He insisted on me finding my own strength and helped hold me up during my most vulnerable moments.. I wanted more than anything for Brad to believe me. He explained the necessity in remaining professional and that believing me instantly could cause him to overlook or miss something important to my case. I had a hard time with this because I was consumed with needing to be "believed!" It was evident that the prosecution made the very mistakes that Brad refused to make. During the trial, he remained confident and respectful. He commanded respect in the courtroom and held the highest level of integrity of anyone present in the courtroom. He knew every word of my 1000 page discovery better than i did myself. He earned the respect of the judge, the jury, and even the prosecutor. When I wanted to completely hide under the table while hearing outright lies about my character and worse, he gently encouraged me to keep my head held high. He prepared me to walk with confidence during every step of my hell on earth. He did not let feelings get in the way of his professionalism. He and his stellar team communicated things to me in a timely fashion and never provided false hope. Even during deliberation be prepared me for all scenarios. I know he was certain of the outcome but he would not allow his confidence to impact his professionalism. Brad devises a plan of action, has a strategy, and works tirelessly to defend his clients. He saved my life. The verdict was a unanimous NOT guilty after 1 day of deliberation. I am innocent and have been the entire time but Brad was the one who was able to secure the verdict. My former students and more importantly my daughter want to be like Brad! The day my brother decided to take the wheel and have me meet Brad was the day my life was saved. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone accused of a sex crime. I believe he is by far the most professional attorney with the highest level of integrity and the deepest level of compassion. I cannot say enough about Brad and his entire team! I owe them my life!

The most difficult and depressing point in my life. I was suicidal. Brad is very adept at understanding the defendant's human emotions, severe self-loathing and terror. He kept me updated and aware.

Brad Meryhew is a remarkably intelligent and truly gifted attorney who cares about his clients and helped me through an incredibly difficult time. I was facing a rape charge and I felt nothing but hopelessness, facing something like 20 years in prison and a lifetime sex offender registration. It seemed like there was nothing I could do to handle the devastating effects that accusation had upon my family and I felt helpless. I realized fast that knowing you're innocent isn't enough to get you through the legal system and I had no idea what to do. However, immediately after hiring Brad, I felt as though I didn’t have to worry because he had everything under control. Brad studied the details of my case inside and out, was always extremely prepared, and his confidence and rapport with the prosecutors made me realize that everything is going to be ok. Brad used his vast knowledge, experience, and brilliant legal mind to quickly resolve my case and because of that, I no longer have to worry about jail, sex offender registration, or any of it. My family and I can finally move on with our lives and for that I can’t thank Brad Meryhew enough.

The Meryhew Law Group accomplished what I wanted to achieve. I feel like the staff worked hard, and keep me informed as the information came in. I would definitely choose the Meryhew Law Group again.

I initially hired Mr. Meryhew on the recommendation of a bail bondsman. I asked who the best lawyer was for my kind of case and they recommended Brad. That was a few years ago and since then, he has become my adviser and supporter through several iterations related to my case. He did not judge me for my transgressions, but defended me to the absolute best of his ability. I am very lucky because I listened to the recommendation and now make the same recommendation to all who need help and direction through the jurisprudence system.

I can't really put into words how much better my life is now, specifically due to my decision to hire Brad as my lawyer. From the moment I stepped in his office, I already started feeling better about my case. He was extremely knowledgable, but more importantly, he seemed to actually care about me and my life, rather than just treat me as another client. He made me feel at ease, without sugarcoating the situation, which is I think the best thing a great lawyer can do for you.
It was the scariest time in my life, I was looking at a possibility of multiple years in prison, but Brad got me a gift from heaven, zero jail or work release time. He seemed to know all the prosecutors, and the judges, and I think those relationships helped me out a lot. He was always willing to meet with me, and was always prepared.
There's not a price you can put on your future and well being. I would recommend Brad to everyone. I've seen the difference first hand between a good lawyer and a bad one, and Brad is definitely one you will want on your side.

Brad is a highly-knowledgable and experienced attorney in his field. His reputation precedes him, as I learned early on when a detective referred to him as a "premier attorney." I really have felt that he cares about me and my case on a personal level. He has a keen sensitivity to those of us who have been unfairly embroiled in false allegations, and knows how to proceed at each step in the process. At every point I felt like he knew what to do. The prosecutor knew Brad (and his reputation), and I believe that had something to do with his decision to not file criminal charges. His colleagues and office staff are professional, friendly, and sensitive. I would absolutely recommend Brad's professional services.

Mr. Brad Meryhew has my highest recommendations. I am very grateful to Mr. Brad. He is a GOD sent. He is the best attorney I would have ever gotten. My case was quite difficult in my opinion. I am in my early 20’s. I am a medical professional .It was a sexual assault case. As medical professionals know that such charges or cases can do great damage to the person’s career in medical industry. I was in financial hardship. I was looking at 5 years to entire life in prison. I would have gotten felony charges. I would had to register as a sex offender. I would had to depart from the country. I was scared as things in my life had turned upside down. My entire future was truly in jeopardy. My case required him to interface with State prosecutors, department of health Washington and Residential client protection program officials. He always seemed comfortable navigating these waters.
Mr. Brad and his team worked diligently to help with the case. My grandparents live in another country. They require my help. Due to the case, I could not have traveled over there to help them. He referred me to a immigration attorney. That attorney was quite helpful as well. Mr. Brad communicated with him to understand the immigration laws. In my opinion, Mr. Brad great relationship with the prosecutor that helped to remove the restrictions to travel abroad. He negotiated with the prosecutor to help me travel abroad. He team which included a para legal attorney and office manager were smiling at all times, helpful and welcoming. His office was clean and organized which I admire.
My experience with Brad was nothing short of a miracle. In my opinion, he really cares for clients. He has well respected relationship with the prosecutor’s office which produced great results in my case. He was quite responsive. He kept me informed throughout the entire process. He even informed me even after the case was closed. Who does that? I think he is the epitome of customer service, professionalism, expertise. I learned a lot from him that I can use and apply in my own life. He is more than a lawyer. I always give Brad’s reference to my friends, family or other acquaintances.

Brad Meryhew and team are providing a service they are meant to! From the initial consult to outcome, Brad was honest, diligent and continuously supportive. His team is up to date consistently and completely knowledgeable. Brad has the deserved manner that kept me calm and hopeful through this extremely stressful event. As I am a worrier by nature, by him being honest and given faith by believing in me, this was monument to me maintaining my mental and physical health as I could continue my daily life knowing I had someone on my side who cared and wanted the best for me as his client. Never did I feel neglected nor ignored. He was always prompt in communication weather it was via email, phone or in person. His door was always open to me. Because of The Meryhew Law Group, I can continue my professional endeavors and continue my education. If it was not for this gentleman and his team, my life would have turned for the worse and changed irreversibly. He was able to obtain the truth. My experience with Brad was nothing short of a miracle, but more that I was able to find a human being that cares for what he does and for those that walk in through his door. This experience surpasses customer service, Brad is doing what he is meant to do! Thank You Brad and your Team...

He got me a practically unheard-of sentence - two felony counts reduced to misdemeanors and no jail time. I want to think that when the prosecutor saw I'd lawyered up with Mr. Meryhew, it was time to start bargaining. His reputation is strong and his results are outstanding.
