What motivates us.

Eric Gile and Spencer Merk met while studying law. Although they both graduated from the University of Kentucky with business degrees, they never had the fortunate opportunity to meet each other there. Soon after meeting at Chase, Eric and Spencer began working together at an injury firm in Cincinnati and quickly grew professionally. They blossomed into experienced and intelligent attorneys with hundreds of outstanding reviews. Take a look:

Eric and Spencer believe that what wins a case and what makes their firm thrive is passionately seeking recourse for those wronged by another. That is the energy that sets them apart from other law firms is the same energy that continues to produce great settlements for their clients. With any injury, the client should be focused on their treatment and getting better. At Merk & Gile law, Eric and Spencer understand this and take the worries out of their clients hands.

Merk & Gile opened its doors in 2018 and looks forward to serving the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky communities! They are both licensed in Ohio and Kentucky, and they also have their Federal licenses in both the Eastern District of Kentucky and the Southern District of Ohio.
