Merdes Informative - Inexcusable Attorney Services
FAIRBANKS, ALASKA -- My spouse contacted Ward Merdes to represent him. For several months Merdes has said "no problem, the case looks good".... when you can get him to return calls.
The first hearing was a disaster. Merdes did not call witnesses and stumbled through his spiel. My spouse wrote an email to Merdes complaining of the means in which he mishandled the case. My spouse reminded Merdes he was retained to perform a service which he failed miserably to do.
Six days before the next hearing, Merdes dropped my spouse as a client. With only a few days left, my spouse has to fork over thousands more dollars and locate another lawyer.
Did I mention that Merdes was busy running for state office during this time? Don't bother retaining Ward Merdes. His arrogance is only matched by his incompetents.
