Tyler J. Merkel


Facing a lawsuit is a worrisome prospect. As an attorney, I believe the best way to help my clients is to be flexible and responsive to their individual needs. My responsibility is not only to serve as a zealous advocate, but to also explain the litigation process, investigate every angle of a case, and keep my clients apprised of new developments. Solid partnerships built on good communication allow us to formulate an effective defense plan that achieves a desirable outcome.”
