You've got rights.

The golden rule. The square deal. There are a thousand ways to say be fair. Yet it can be hard to know what's fair, and harder still to obtain it on your own—even with the law on your side.

That's where we come in. Whether you need a guide to navigate the law, an advocate to fight for you, or a mediator to build a bridge, Merritt Law LLC is here to help. Contact us.

With over twelve years' experience in Boston’s elite small labor and employment law firms, Attorney Merritt advocates for workers and advises small businesses on best practices for a fairer workplace.

Attorney Merritt is admitted to practice before state courts and agencies in Massachusetts, and before the U.S. District Court for Massachusetts and the First Circuit Court of Appeals. He is a graduate of Northeastern University School of Law and Connecticut College, magna cum laude.

Beyond his practice, Attorney Merritt relishes every moment he can get with his amazing wife—a product manager for a Boston-area software company—and is an avid cinephile, a lifelong tech enthusiast, and a frustrated cook.
