Prior to becoming an attorney, Merle had a twelve-year-long career in residential and commercial real estate sales. While in law school, Merle worked full-time at an insurance company in Miami, as both a Legal Assistant and then Law Clerk. 

Before joining our firm, Merle was an associate attorney at a large law firm’s Insurance Defense Practice Group. In that role, Merle focused practicing on first-party property litigation and litigated cases at all stages from initial strategy through trial preparation. She also evaluated and responded to Civil Remedy Notices, conducted Examinations Under Oath, and provided legal advice and strategy regarding issues of coverage. 

Merle enjoys being challenged by complex issues and in the process – learning new skills. When she is not practicing law, Merle enjoys spending time with her family and loved ones, practicing yoga, and working out.
