About Michael J. Merrick
Michael was born and raised in the Greater Seattle Area. He graduated from Bellevue High School in 2000, and attended Washington State University, where he graduated with a degree in Political Science in 2004. After college, Michael moved to Boston, MA, where he attended New England School of Law. During law school, he studied abroad at the National University of Ireland, where he studied international human rights law. Michael also completed internships with the law school’s clinical law office for indigent clients, and the public defender’s office, also representing those most in need of legal counsel.
Upon graduating from law school, Michael worked as a criminal defense lawyer for two years, representing defendants in state and federal court. He worked as an insurance defense lawyer thereafter, defending insurance companies in personal injury cases throughout the State of Massachusetts. Although he appreciated the challenge of insurance defense work, Michael realized he was meant to return home and work with people on an individual basis.
Today, Michael is privileged to represent individuals and businesses in the Queen Anne Hill neighborhood of Seattle, WA and across the State of Washington.
