Merkle Law Firm is located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. For over 25 years, Attorney Bret Merkle and his legal staff have represented hundreds of injury victims throughout South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa and Nebraska. Bret and his firm have recovered literally millions of dollars for their injured clients through jury trials, court trials, mediations, arbitrations and negotiated settlements. From small injuries to life-changing injuries and death cases, we take care of people who have suffered injuries and damages.  Our goal is to be the best lawyer and law firm to bring you the best results possible.  You need a top rated lawyer to help you through your tragic circumstances and injuries.  The results we have obtained for our clients and their testimonies speak for themselves. 

Motivated by life-altering injuries from a motorcycle accident, Bret became a lawyer and began practicing personal injury law in 1992. Bret and his staff are committed to the people they represent. Bret personally communicates regularly with his clients through phone calls, text messaging and email (even nights, weekends and holidays).  Bret and his staff know it is not just an 8 to 5 job, because their clients’ injuries and problems are not on an 8 to 5 schedule. There is no problem too big or too small to help those who have entrusted their lives with Bret and his Law Firm. Bret knows the importance of being available to help people get through tragedy. Something as simple as an unpaid medical bill or a call from an insurance adjuster can be stressful.  Bret and his staff are there for you and they know how to get the best possible results you need.

Most clients say: “This office is so comfortable.” That is important to us because it means we are doing our job well. The stress from the injuries, medical bills, time off work, missing out on family and leisure activates creates a stressful and uncomfortable life. Merkle Law Firm exists to take all that stress away so you can get back to life as you knew it before the injuries.  

Many clients say: “I don’t want to go to court.” Most injury cases can be settled without going through the court process.  Many cases are settled directly with the insurance company. However, experience is crucial to getting a fair settlement. Claims adjusters handle thousands of claims every year and they are experts at saving the insurance company money.  Merkle Law Firm knows how to deal with the Insurance Company to level the playing field. First, you are just a claim number to them. The adjuster is paid to save the company money. Their loyalty is to the company, not you. Our loyalty is to you alone. We are professional advocates who have been in the fight for over 25 years. We will protect you with honesty and professionalism.
