Biographical Information

I defended civil litigation cases for the first eight years of practice. I represented mostly plaintiffs for another 20+ years. My law practice included employment law, personal injury, product liability, pharmaceutical product liability, medical and legal malpractice, construction, and many other topics.

As of June 2016, I've served as a mediator for over four years in more than 120 cases. I believe mediators must have the humanity and skill to elicit, comprehend, and address the interests and needs of plaintiffs, defendants, and their counsel. I pride myself on persistence and the ability to work through impasse to encourage the parties to find resolution. You can read more about me and my approach at www.merrickmediation.com.

I study and practice mediation as an art and craft because a mediator cannot deploy the full array of mediator tools unless he or she knows them. I stopped litigating at the end of 2015, and now focus solely on mediation.

I serve on the following mediation panels: American Arbitration Association, Oregon State Courts, and Oregon Patient Safety Commission for adverse health care incidents.

I am a member of the Oregon Mediation Association, and I follow the OMA Standards of Practice and Guidelines.
