  • Testimonials

    "We contacted lawyer Mertz for a violation of probation on a DUI case, and even though odds were not very good, she was able to get an awesome outcome in court. She knows the law and stays up to date on new changes to it, something that came in handy when she presented the case."

    "I was referred to Andrea Mertz through word of mouth. After consulting with her I felt comfortable with her knowledge of the law and experience and hired her to represent me. She was professional, reliable and easy to communicate with. She was able to get my charges dismissed and did so with ease during my court hearing. I highly recommend her to anyone who is in need of an honest and caring attorney."
