  • He has been available, keeping us apprised of all proceedings in a timely manner.

    “The family dynamics were quite contentious at times and Matt has been not only highly competent but also compassionate and caring.”


  • Mr. Merrill is a very professional attorney. He is just a great guy!

    “He consistently takes care of business promptly. He represented me very vigorously. ”


  • He knows his stuff, and got our family back.

    “Matt and his staff are fantastic. We had our two young boys taken from us, via a parent who lied an manipulated the system. Matt calmed us down, took us step by step , and was available to us with any questions we had. We got our children back at our second court date, and were awarded full physical custody. We cannot thank Merrill law enough. We highly recommend Matt, and as life does happen and the other parent doesn't just go away, will use him again in the future.”
