Experienced Help For Your Legal Needs
I am Robert P. Merino, Attorney and I have practiced law for more than 40 years — as a trial lawyer, a prosecutor and a Judge. I have worked in criminal law and civil courts, representing individuals, businesses and government agencies. In all these matters, I have worked hard to uphold the law and bring my clients the best possible results. Currently, my practice is focused primarily on estate planning and probate, as well as commercial and residential real estate. But because of the breadth of my legal experience, I can also help clients located in and around Niagara Falls, New York, with the following:
- Criminal defense
- Business formation
- Municipal law

Everyone who is accused of a crime deserves a defense. I help people accused of DWI offenses to protect their licenses and their futures. I also have experience defending the rights of the accused of white collar crimes, including fraud and embezzlement. These are complex cases and require help from an experienced attorney.
I help entrepreneurs and other clients get their new ventures started on a solid legal footing so that they can avoid potential legal problems and focus on growth and success. I help with incorporation, LLCs, partnership agreements and more.
I can help municipalities in the region navigate complicated governance issues, including planning and zoning, municipal financing, taxation and more.
