Very happy with the service and outcome. Hailey was invaluable! Being that this was my first “legal matter” as a small business owner, I was naturally intimidated by the situation and process. Hailey took the stress (and there was a lot of it!) off of me and accepted it as her own. It was a

LABOR & EMPLOYMENT

I found Merritt Green through the internet!

I had less than 36 hours to find a lawyer for my case at work. I found Merritt Green through the internet. He quickly spoke to me about my problems and agreed to represent me on my case. Merritt Green and his associates were there for me through my whole case even when called at the last minute and even negotiated my return to work. I could not have asked for more help and support in a dire time.

I would recommend this firm to anyone in a similar situation!

I found myself in a situation where my former employer was suing me for monetary compensation and a non-compete clause. Mr. Merritt Green and his associate, Mr. Andrew Baxter were very knowledgeable in employment law as it pertains to Federal contractors and the Commonwealth of Virginia. They were able to settle the case to my satisfaction without court time. I would recommend this firm to anyone in a similar situation.

One of the most committed, determined, and knowledgeable legal teams

I had a relative who underwent an injustice with their former employer (a major chain store). Merritt Green and Hailey Render with the addition of their staff fought vigorously for almost two years to bring this relative justice. This is one of the most committed, determined, and knowledgeable legal teams in the industry, and whatever your issue, how big or small, trust when I say they are equipped to help you, even if you feel helpless. I thank you Merritt Green, Hailey Render, and your wonderful staff for everything. Whenever someone asks for legal advice now, I simply hand them one of your business cards and say “thank me later”.

LITIGATION

It was a great experience!

Attorney Merritt Green is the founder and managing partner of the General Counsel P.C., a law firm which specializes in business and workplace related matters. Working directly with Mr. Green and the firm’s litigator, Mr. J. Andrew Baxter, was a great experience. They effectively defined and sized my claim against a former employer, and moved quickly to obtain financial damages on my behalf. I would definitely hire these expert attorneys for any future business or workplace related issues in future, and would similarly recommend them to others requiring legal support and advocacy in this field of law.
