Jeff Merrick, A Lawyer’s Lawyer.
I worked with Jeff Merrick in the mid-1990s. I had many opportunities to observe his legal abilities and work ethic. And I was impressed! Mr. Merrick consistently won his cases and was the highest earner for the law firm that employed us.
Then, in 2004 I was involved in a car accident, and had broken bones and spinal injuries. In 2005, someone else crashed into my car, and the ultimate result was I needed three major surgeries, and about 17 minor surgeries.
When my insurance company refused to honor their obligations for uninsured and underinsured car crashes, I knew that Jeff would be the best attorney for my case.
And he was! He worked many hours to understand my medical records and injuries. He very ably defended me against my insurance company’s attacks. And because of his superior legal skills, he was able to craft the lawsuit so that my insurance company had to pay his attorney fees, and I was able to keep the entire jury award.
And the judge told the insurance company attorney that he would have awarded me even more money based on Mr. Merrick’s case presentation.
I think Jeffrey Merrick did an excellent job fighting for my rights and would hire him again in an instant.
Mr. Merrick represented me in a discrimination case against a former employer. I always knew Jeff truly cared for me and my case. Mr. Merrick always returned any phone calls or emails right away. I knew that he was fighting for me. I could not have asked for a better attorney. Jeff made a really tough time so much easier.
I hired Jeff as my attorney when I was a plaintiff in an employment lawsuit in 2006. He was knowledgeable in employment law, aggressive in a very professional manner, and knew the resources to draw from to enhance my case. We did not go to trial due to other circumstances and was forced to settle, something out of my control, another story.
I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Merrick to anyone.
Thank you Jeff for all your help and support during those times.
Thank you so much! This [settlement] couldn’t have come at a better time and I really appreciated your focus and effectiveness on this case. Your dedication, constant updates and communication helped me through this anxiety-ridden and hurtful period, and I’ll always be thankful.
You have been a terrific help to me with all your diligent efforts. I have been very fortunate to have been referred to you. I know you have spend a lot of time on these issues, and I certainly do appreciate that. Thank you so much.
We were glad to have an attorney who felt was truly on our side at all times rather on the side of the mighty dollar. Your professionalism, along with your humanity and concern for my son, reassured us we were doing the right thing by retaining your services.
We hope you have continued success in representing those in a time of true need.

Jeff took on a case involving myself and 4 others. Jeff bent over backwards and was always available to answer any questions we had. It did not matter what time of day or time I needed to talk to him, he was there for me and us. Jeff is also an excellent “P.I.” (Private Investigator): the things he found from Defendant’s past was nothing less than remarkable.
I hate to have to see anyone need to go to court. Although if you want an Attorney that you can trust to give you answers, not beat around the bush, and is honest I would have to say Jeff is your guy.
It has been a while since our settlement, and I still consider Jeff a friend. I look back often at how he never fed us any lines just to make us happy, he shot from the hip, and told us how it is. I like honest.
I just want too say Thank You, again, Jeff! We all appreciate the hard work you put in for our Justice.
I worked directly with Jeff for five years. The diverse caseload we experienced while employed together afforded me the opportunity to observe the scope of knowledge and passion that Jeff brings to every client he represents. . . . Some of Jeff’s cases have resulted in revised statutory legislation and changes to existing public policy. Jeff’s representation of his clients always seems to have a larger purpose beyond jus “the case.” This approach to the practice of law is often discussed by lawyers, but rarely practiced in real life.
In my twelve years in the legal field – both in private firms and government – I have had the chance to observe many lawyers. I am proud to say that I consider Jeff to be one of my primary mentors in developing my ethical approach to daily professional interactions. Furthermore, I have witnessed Jeff act as a mentor in teaching legal skills and complex theories to many of his colleagues. Jeff is often the person sought ought by other lawyers for his thoughts and insights about their cases.
I have known Mr. Merrick professionally for approximately ten years. He possesses the highest ethical standards. I have been involved in both very large cases and small cases in which Mr. Merrick represented opposing parties. Mr. Merrick is a very talented lawyer. He possesses excellent research and writing skills. He has been a dedicated and vigorous advocate on behalf of his clients.
