Spencer Merk

Cincinnati, Ohio

“I am willing to fight for my client when no one else will.  I understand that an accident can not only physically injure you, but also injure you financially. That is why I make it a priority to get you compensation as fast as possible.”

Spencer Merk was initially drawn to the legal profession by the thought of helping others persevere through the most serious problems in their life. His favorite part of being an attorney is standing up for those who do not have anyone else on their side, and making sure that no one takes advantage of someone just because they have the capabilities of doing so. He thoroughly enjoys litigation, for it is when he can truly fight for his clients’ rights, and when he is able to get a favorable settlement for his clients.

He was born and raised in the Cincinnati area and began his career with the Levy Law Offices in December of 2013. Spencer graduated Cum Laude from the University of Kentucky in 2011 with a business marketing degree. Spencer then received his Juris Doctorate degree from Salmon P. Chase College of Law in 2014, and was placed on the Dean’s list for his academic achievements. Spencer is also a member of the Cincinnati Bar Association, Northern Kentucky Bar Association, and Louisville Bar Association.

Spencer gained wide-ranging experience in the practice of criminal law while working as a Limited Licensed Intern at the Jefferson County Attorney’s Office, the Kenton County Commonwealth Attorney’s Office, as well as the Hamilton County Public Defender’s Office. During his time at the Jefferson County Attorney’s Office, Spencer was successful as lead counsel on four jury trials. Spencer is now using his skills and knowledge to fight for client’s rights and interests in the courtroom, in both personal injury and criminal matters.

He enjoys going to sporting events around Cincinnati, snowboarding, running, golfing, tennis, Young Lawyers Section, traveling, learning stupid random facts, and trying new places around Cincinnati. His favorite sports teams are Cincinnati Bengals, Cincinnati Reds, The Bearcats, FC Cincinnati, Cyclones, UK Wildcats, and the Pacers. His favorite restaurants (just to name a few) are Sotto, Jean- Robert’s Table, Terry’s Turf Club, Eli’s BBQ, Skyline, Frida 602, Strong’s Pizza, Knock Back Nats, and Huit BBQ.

His favorite book is 1984 by George Orwell. He enjoys relaxing watching his favorite shows, Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Game of Thrones, and Silicon Valley or one of his favorite movies, Old School, Joe Dirt, V for Vendetta, Cinderella Man, or Airplane.
