Summary

Oregon Trial Attorney: 503-665-4234

I love the law, and I love helping people.

An Oregon civil litigation attorney since 1984, I have recovered millions of dollars for injured children and adults. In addition to personal injury cases, I help people with claims against lawyers, employers government pedestrian & bicycle injuries, and other reasons.

I limit my law practice to just a few clients at a time. This way, I control the quality of the work and the quality of the client relationship.

Most of my clients have never worked with a lawyer before. People call me because they are suffering from some trouble. I pride myself on being accessible: my clients phone me when they have questions, and I give them the time they need.

A: If you'd like, you may E-mail me with the following information: Who is the lawyer? What did the lawyer do wrong? When did you discover the lawyer harmed you? What is the dollar value of the harm? Jeff Merrick merrick@jeffmerrick.com
Q. My employer told me that I should not come to work after taking my prescirbed medication.
A: You, too, ought to get a lawyer. Your question raises issues of whether your medical condition or any disability caused her to prevent you from going to work. Did they try to work with you about your medication. Also, it raises the question of the real reason she wanted to get rid of you. You ought to request your personnel records immediately. They can wait 45 days to give them to you (assuming you are employed in Oregon) They will be presenting you with a waiver of rights in exchange for additional money. You will want a lawyer to analyze the value if any claims you might have to decide on their offer. Good luck.
