What Our Clients Say
This guy saved my life!Posted by Brian - avvo.com
“I knew nothing about the bankruptcy process and was hesitant and a little scared. Dmitry came out to meet with me, we had a cup of coffee and the next thing I knew, with a few questions he had filed for my chapter 13. He saved my house and with his tremendous experience dealing with the IRS, he was able to correct an IRS debt that i didn't really owe. Trust me, you want this guy on your side.”

Dmitry explained everything in detail, explained all my options and recommended the best course of action. He saved my house and decreased my debt significantly, for which I’m very grateful. Highly recommend this bankruptcy attorney.”
Expert in bankruptcy mattersPosted by Alberto - avvo.com
“When my wife and I hired Dmitry to help us, we knew nothing about bankruptcy practice. Mr Merrit was very thorough in explaining to us all the steps and pretty much held our hand until the end of road, which had a very positive outcome. He is not only an expert in what he does, but also very compassionate and understanding person. Highly recommend doing business with him (in fact we already recommended him to our friends)”
