Clifford R. Mermell, Esq., created the law firm of Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco, P.A. on March 1, 1996. Mr. Mermell has been the senior and managing partner of the firm since its creation. The firm was created to champion the rights of injured workers nationwide. It represents cases under the Worker's Compensation, Wrongful Termination, Personal Injury, Admiralty and Maritime, Defense Base Act, and Longshore & Harbor Worker's Compensation Act Laws.
I worked in Turkey as a translator. I was injured in 2018. Mr. Mermell and his son handled my Defense Base Act case. They did an amazing job for me. My case was difficult and the insurance company tried to deny me everything.
My friend referred me to Mr. Mermell and the law firm of Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco. I had never hired a lawyer before in my life. I was nervous to go down this road, but I had seriously injuries and needed help. Mr. Mermell and his staff set me up right from the start. H
I hired Mr. Mermell for my Defense Base Act case. He handled that like a champion. then he took it one step further. He put together a case for me under the Anti Terrorism Act. He hit a homerun for me under that law.
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.
Mr. Mermell took my case against the Army & Air Force Exchange Service where I was injured on the job. Mr. Mermell was patient and persistent. He and his associate fought hard to get me a great result.
