About Our Firm


Welcome to Lauren A. Merritt, P.A. We serve families through personalized legal services and reliable advice. We are a small law practice handling a small number of cases. Our clients are names in our office, not files on a shelf. We pride ourselves on accessibility and responsiveness and always put our clients’ needs first.


Having lost her mom at a young age in a tragic accident, Lauren understands the challenges a family faces after losing a loved one. We aim to remove the uncertainty from the legal processes that follow a death in the family or the need to support a disabled adult or minor child. We provide answers and direction that clear space for families to take care of themselves and the ones they love most.


Our mission is to show clients compassion and understanding while providing valuable legal services and direction. Clients we have the privilege of supporting have either experienced a death in the family or are taking measures to protect someone they love through guardianship. We are committed to humanizing the services we provide by recognizing the vulnerable nature of our clients’ affairs and being sensitive to their needs. Our team works diligently to bring families peace of mind and resolution.
