Recommend by My Friend the Judge
My wife of 38 years filed for a divorce, but we remain friendly much to Merrill’s credit. In my profession I deal with a lot of attorneys, so finding a process to select representation for my divorce was tricky. I wanted someone who would listen to me in my effort to get a reasonable and fair settlement for us both – in spite of the fact that I saw my ex’s attorney as quite the opposite. So I sought the recommendation of an old friend who was a retired, highly respected judge and he offered three attorneys for consideration. Merrill was by far the most “in tuned” to the way I wanted my case handled. He clearly presented “the law” and the options I faced allowing me the decisions on how to proceed. We were able to get it done reasonably quickly, and my ex and I remain friendly…again much to Merrill’s credit
I could not have chosen a better lawyer for my case. If I had to chose one word to describe Merrill, it would be “integrity”. Merrill would not and would not let me play unfair and be dishonest, even when my ex wife and her attorney would, I really respect him for that. Merrill listened to me and would tell me realistically what I could expect worst/best case. He had a very difficult case and well exceeded my expectations. He was bombarded with papers and accusations about me from my ex wife’s attorney and would help me understand what was happening. I was ready to give up many times and Merrill convinced me to keep fighting. His experience in court proceedings were beyond compare. He would explain to me, that I would need to weigh if something small was worth fighting over, or would you rather it all just be over. That is when I realized that Merrill understood me as a client and knew that although I did not want her to think that she had won, it was best to just be done. When it was over, my attorney fee’s we 1/4 of what my ex wife had spent and although neither her nor I got everything we wanted, I can honestly say that I am happy with the J.O.D. and have no regrets.
I have still contacted Merrill from time to time for advice, he has been responsive and helpful. Will continue to use Merrill if anything in the future should arise.
Merrill was my attorney for my divorce. It was a very difficult process. I really liked that Merrill did not make a bunch of empty promises to me for the sake of getting more hourly pay for himself. I felt he always tried to paint a realistic picture of what I was facing financially and did his best to minimize cost for me. He was always approachable and available and very prompt at returning calls and e-mails.
Merrill Gordon represented me during my recent divorce proceeding. Needless to say, I was put through an extremely traumatic process by my spouse.
An example was an instance early in the proceeding when a situation developed that prompted a late night call to Merrill’s cell. His counsel was absolutely correct and I was able to react accordingly. I found that Merrill was available to help 24/7 which was extremely important in my case. He is not a 9 – 5 lawyer.
Another thing that I appreciated was his promptness in returning my calls and appearing on time for my court appearances. Also, I felt that his billing process was very fair. His billing statements were easy to read and very accurate.
I would definitely recommend Merrill as a divorce attorney
Professional, Timely, Trustworthy!
The legal process can be an intimidating experience, but working with Merrill really helped to alleviate that fear. He was able to explain everything in a way that was easy to understand and made sure I was comfortable at all times. He was extremely professional, timely and trustworthy. I would absolutely recommend Merrill Gordon as he will always have your best interest at heart.
Top Notch Attorney
I have had Merrill handle matters for me and would recommend him to everyone. Not only is he competent he treats me as if I am his only client. He keeps me informed without drowning me in legalese. If you need an attorney to handle your divorce or other litigation in the area give him a call.
Highly Recommend Merrill Gordon Family Law
My wife file filed for divorce. I am happy to report that we have decided to dismiss the case and reconcile.
As I searched for an attorney, a friend suggested that I consider Mr. Gordon. Brief research revealed that he had excellent reviews. In our conversations he was very precise in his questioning and advice. He made it clear to me exactly what I was facing and detailed options that were readily understood.
He was upfront about his billing, providing a detailed monthly statement with a brief description, cost, and timestamp for each billable line item.
Mr. Gordon inspired my confidence impressing me as a very precise thinker who knows his business. I highly recommend Merrill Gordon to anyone in need of counsel in Family Law matters.
Helped Me & My Family
I would definitely recommend Attorney Merrill Gordon in fact, I already have, to a few of my friends. Mr. Gordon has been used in various cases in my family for years I remember my grandmother hiring him when I was maybe 4 or 5 years old. I am now 24 and need him for my own reasons as he always yielded excellent results. If he is handling any type of case or claim for you, you can depend on him to promptly respond to any concerns you may have regarding your situation be it via voicemail e- mail or simply leaving a message with a secretary, even if it’s not pertaining to the portion of the matter he’s handling. He is also very articulate and good with keeping you informed on the current status of your case by phone or mail, as well as checking on you and your mental/physical state as far as the case is concerned. He even sends follow up letters from phone conversations to let you know that you have his genuine concern and appreciation!
Car Accident/ Tickets - Professional & Effective
I was introduced to Merrill shortly after moving to Michigan and he was extremely helpful in the resolution of my case. I was grateful for how much he was able to help me understand the situation, receiving a constant update on where we were in the process, and then really coming through with a positive resolution in a timely manor. Have suggested a few friends to him since then and would use again.
