Merkle & Magri P.A. offers extensive trial and litigation services with particular expertise in employee rights; government misconduct; personal, property and professional injury; civil rights; mobile home rights; insurance coverage; and business litigation. Our attorneys also provide criminal defense representation, primarily for federal criminal cases involving white collar, Medicare and healthcare fraud.

With more than 60 years of combined practice experience, Joseph D. Magri and Ward A. Meythaler were members of the litigation sections in major law firms where they represented Fortune 500 corporations, smaller businesses and individuals. Both attorneys then entered the public sector to serve as Assistant U.S. Attorneys in the criminal division at the U.S. Attorneys Office for the Middle District of Florida. Additionally, Merkle & Magri P.A. has represented both plaintiffs and defendants.

This combination of diverse trial and litigation experience in both the private and public sector in civil and criminal matters for individuals, large companies, smaller businesses and the government allows us to bring a well-rounded perspective and unique skills to our clients' cases. As a result, our attorneys are experienced and sophisticated litigators, with strong legal and trial skills, who use innovative methods on behalf of their clients.

At Merkle & Magri P.A., we combine our extensive legal knowledge with dedicated, professional representation of our clients.  Our firm has a service-driven work ethic, and we are committed to securing justice for our clients.  We understand that every client has suffered substantial injuries or damages or is confronting potential liabilities, as well as the stress of litigation, and needs an assertive advocate representing their interests and providing personal attention throughout the litigation process.

Our firm has achieved the highest AV rating from Martindale-Hubbell, which evaluates attorneys throughout the United States and Canada. The AV rating means that, according to our peers, our firm has achieved the highest levels of legal ability and ethical conduct. Our attorneys are also listed in the pre-eminent attorney publication produced by Martindale-Hubbell.
