Introduction: We love what we do and our website, theassociates.com, tells our story. Let us show you how we redefine possible, and do so in an environment where you genuinely feel your problems are important and cared about. Helping people work through what is often the toughest times of their lives in a positive and creative way is very satisfying, and is something we are proud to have done to the satisfaction of thousands of clients over the last 20-plus years. Ensuring that our clients get calls back the same day, keeping them informed, and ensuring that they truly understand what can -- and cannot -- be done helps us redefine possible for those we work with every day.

I met with Mr Merrill this week. He took his time and explained the different types of bankruptcies available. I was very comfortable with Mr Merrill and my decision to retain him to represent me.

We are in the early phases yet but my impression of Mr. Merrill has been all positive. Upon meeting and talking with him, I find him to be professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate. He advised me realistically of what to expect and was willing to work around my needs. I look forward to having him represent me in a difficult family case.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Some cases are priced by the courts and are the same no matter what lawyer you go to. Others truly require an understanding of what is going on in order to properly set a person's expectations as to what the fees and costs will truly be. It's for this reason that we offer a FREE CONSULTATION for whatever problem you are facing -- something common in bankruptcy practice but unheard of in other areas of the law we serve, such as family law and general civil trial. Not sure what you are facing? Come talk to us FOR FREE and then base your choices on facts and not fiction. ONE MORE VERY IMPORTANT THING TO KNOW: The rates we give on this website are deeply discounted. The normal attorney rate is $450.00 per hour. By entering into an agreement with us for a discounted fee you understand that failure to pay your attorneys fees will result in the discounted rate being waived and al normal rates will be applied to your invoice. That said, we are very easy to talk to and work with when it comes to these situations, and truly want to be as satisfied as you can be given the terrible situation that brings you to us.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We are not interested in just "getting the facts" of a case. Our clients are coming to us with problems that are very often the worst situations that they have ever -- or will ever -- face in their lives. We like to spend time getting to know the people who are trusting us with doing a good job for them, and also want to ensure that they know us as well. As a part of that process, we certainly do get to the bottom of the issues they are facing, and typically will have them fill out simple paperwork that helps us understand that critical element of their situation so that we can give them the best advice we can, and provide direct recommendations for ways to resolve the problems in the most expeditious and complete way possible.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Lawyers are pretty typical in this regard: four years of college and three years of law school. Lawyers are also required to take "continuing legal education" or CLE classes in order to keep abreast of the latest changes in the law. We do that as well -- but we also go the extra mile by not only taking more CLEs than are required, but also but actually teaching other lawyers how to properly perfect their craft. By being an educator instead of just the educated, I feel that when teaching a subject you get a more thorough understanding of the law and the issues related to it -- all to the benefit of our clients.
