Bob Merriman is a very dedicated attorney with the passion for helping people get the care they deserve.
I had fallen at work in Feb. 2008 which caused a torn rotator cuff and serious injury to my back. L&I allowed the shoulder surgery but denied any help with my back. As time went on the pain in my back progressively worsened and so did any help from L&I, in fact, they wanted to close my case. Oddly enough, just when I thought I had been unjustly defeated I was told about Bob Merriman by a friend who had similar dealings with L&I. He assured me I would get the help I needed. On January 15, 2010 I became a client of Bob Merriman's and happy to say he made it possible for me to have the much needed back surgery. Bob has fought and still battles for me but I rest easy knowing he's on my side. Bob Merriman is kind, personable, attentive, responsive and always there for me. I am glad I listened to my friend as I hope this has helped you.

Bob Merriman was my 3rd lawyer on the same workers comp. case. I was injured 6 years ago and had been struggling along until Bob took over my case in 2007. Since that time, I have gotten results! My back has finally been fixed and I have recieve all of the back wages I was promised and more! I am still recieving unexpected checks from my L&I insurer and Mr. Merriman has been on top of them all the way! Thanks Bob!! You are the best! Suzanne W., Shanghai, China
