Children’s rights

The Merritt Law Clinic specializes in Juvenile Dependency, Administrative Law, and Employment/Civil Rights Litigation. The Clinic is devoted to assisting Foster Youth ages 0-22 to live healthily and nurtured lives within the foster care system and to safely exit the foster care system with a plan for independent living. We are dedicated to assisting relatives and non-related extended family members in the placement of their relative children in safe and happy homes and have effectively represented grandparents, defacto parents, and others in asserting their rights to care for their children. We have also assisted individuals in a variety of civil matters in the areas of personal injury, employment, civil rights, and administrative law.
