Jeff Merrick Oregon Trial Lawyer

You need sound advice and a strong Oregon trial attorney.

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 hurt by legal malpractice, product liability, wrongful death and other reasons. 

Pediatric law is a field I pioneered. Representing injured children and their families differs. Among other things, the rules differ, the types of evidence differ, and the psychology of juries differs. I’m most proud of helping children obtain financially security for life after their own earning capacity was taken from them due to brain injury acquired by trauma (TBI) or anoxia (HAI).

I have a particular interest in complex medical cases involving brain injury, spinal injury and other medical cases. Medical mysteries make my job very interesting.

I represent only a few clients at a time. This way, I control the quality of the work and the quality of the client relationship. I provide a personal, “hand-crafted” approach. Although I live in Portland and my office is in Lake Oswego, I represent people all over the state. I’ve helped people as far away as Roseburg, Bend and Florence, and as nearby as Gresham and Tigard. In-home appointments or in-hospital appointments can be scheduled for many people.

I have the experience, knowledge and tenacity to evaluate your loss and maximize your recovery. I offer free initial telephone consultations and contingent fee agreements. In other words, my time is free if we do obtain money from the insurance company or whoever owes you.

Feel free to call me. You will speak to me, not a paralegal or junior lawyer.
