Healthcare Litigation

“I don’t think Martin Merritt is scared of the Devil himself. He just walks in through the front door and takes over.”
— T. King, Client & Healthcare Entrepreneur.


When you hire Martin Merritt PLLC, Martin Merritt will be the only lawyer working on your case. Which means none of your hard-earned money goes to pay partners who aren’t working on your case, nor will you money be spent to train “baby lawyer” associates how to practice health law. There aren’t any other partners or young associates here.

You get what you pay for here. Martin Merritt is a 35-year healthcare lawyer, experienced in facing down all manner of frightening “alphabet agents,” from the FBI, DOJ, AUSA, OIG, DEA, TMB, CMS, HHS, BCBSTX, UHC auditors and other fraud investigators. Maritn Merritt has been trying lawsuits in Texas since 1989, in state and federal courts, before state and federal ALJ administrative law panels and medical licensing boards. He will personally bring his 35-years’ experience to every case.
