Mr. Mermell was the first person to take my call at this firm. He made me feel relaxed at a time of high stress. I could tell from that first call that he knew exactly what he was doing and that he was the one lawyer for me on my defense base act case. I had called two lawyers before Mr. Mermell, and it was night and day. This man took my case and worked with me day and night for five years to get me the benefits I needed and deserved and the medical care I needed. I am indebted to Mr. Mermell, Mr. Pacheco and Gladis. I don’t know where I would be without them and their help.

Anyone who has been injured overseas in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait or elsewhere, I am telling you to go see my lawyer Clifford R. Mermell. He is the best. I just settled my case and could not be happier with the result. I am going to miss Mr. Mermell and Gladis who helped me through the worst time in my life.
