I was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. I began my legal career at the Washtenaw County Public Defender's Office. My passion for Criminal Defense grew with each moment as I witnessed a system that left me as the last line of defense. This is a responsibility that I take very seriously. My time as a Public Defender allowed me to gain experience essential to the practice of Criminal Law.
My career path then took me to Crabbe, Brown & James, LLP, in downtown Columbus, Ohio. This experience required extensive research and writing on complex legal issues. At Crabbe, Brown & James, LLP, I honed two very important legal skills. First, this position polished my writing skills to ensure that I mastered one of the single most valuable skills an attorney possesses: the ability to write persuasively. Secondly, I learned that in order to be a successful attorney you need to pay close attention to detail. Mastering this skill has enabled me to reach winning verdicts for my clients.
In pursuit to gain as much experience and legal knowledge as possible early in my career, I began working for Scotts Miracle-Gro Company as a contract lawyer. At Scotts, I assisted in all facets of Federal EPA investigations and audits of pesticide products manufactured and sold by an $8 billion dollar consumer products company. I was directly involved in reviewing and analyzing information related to pesticide registration.
After longing to have more personal relationships with clients, I decided to start The Meranda Law Firm LTD. The two biggest areas of law that I thought directly impacted people's lives were Criminal Defense and Domestic Relations. Therefore, I began a firm dedicated to zealous representation in these two areas of law. Now, with two other passionate attorneys working at my firm, clients can rest assured that their legal concern is handled by lawyers committed to getting what the clients want. I have also been selected to the Ohio & Kentucky Super Lawyers® Rising Stars ℠ list for 2014-2016. The Meranda Law Firm LTD is always available for our clients 24/7.
