Couldn't get a better lawyer

After a two year battle with an attorney who did nothing for us, we went to see Connie. She was very helpful, professional and knowledgeable. She told us from the start it was a battle, and what we needed to do, learn and listen. She was very knowledgeable, and communicated with both of us on all matters. You couldn’t get a better lawyer anywhere else. She always made time to listen to us and never refused to see us even at the last minute. She helped us and I will always use her for all my legal matters. Thank you so very much Connie.


Expert legal advice

Attorney Merwine […] represented me throughout a complicated and protracted marital divorce spanning over two and a half years. They provided expert legal advice and worked diligently to resolve the matter with opposing counsel to ensure I experienced the best outcome possible. They were thoroughly prepared for each consultation and pre-trial hearing throughout the litigation process and negotiated a very favorable settlement for me the day of trial. I would highly recommend them.
