5 Star Review for Attorney Rick Merrill

Law Offices of Rick Merrill

August 3, 2015
5/5 stars
I had a bad stretch of 5 speeding tickets over the past 2 years (in a Prius!). Mostly I was able to contest them and get them converted to non-moving violations for varying amounts of "extra penalties" (and was promised each time that they wouldn't show up on my record as moving violations), but the last time I got one the DA working the court that day said that since I had previous speeding tickets that they wouldn't convert to moving anymore, so so much for that promise. I had to eat that one.

Unfortunately I got another speeding ticket a few months ago and - having seen him working the *last* time I was in court - called Rick's office. I'd never hired an attorney to contest a ticket before, and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was (and convenient - I didn't have to appear in court). I was even *more* surprised that Rick was able to get the ticket dismissed! Impressive.

I hope I don't need to call him again (I know - slow down!), but I would in a heartbeat.






Rick grew up in a small farm town in Eastern Washington.  In 1978 Rick started working as a volunteer at the juvenile jail playing ball with the kids who were in the detention center in Walla Walla. 

In 1979 Rick started working as a prison guard at the Washington State Penitentiary in Walla Walla.  There he worked on death row and in the segregation unit.

In 1981 Rick obtained his Criminal Justice degree from Eastern Washington University.  In 1982, Rick wanted to branch out, so he worked as a correctional counselor at a work camp in Olympia.  There he helped to process inmates out of the institution and out into society. 

Working throughout the correctional system, Rick obtained a position in 1983 as a Washington State parole/probation officer.  As a parole/probation officer he worked in several areas of Washington from Aberdeen to the Seattle/Bellevue area.
