About Me

To make a long story short

My name is Merissa.  I am God-fearing and loving, educated, vibrant, passionate and understanding. I am married with three children,  very well-rounded, personable, easy to get along with, easy to talk to, non-judgmental, I love helping people who want to help themselves, and I just so happen to be a lawyer.

To make a short story long

My name is Merissa V. Grayson.  I was born and raised in the South, Pensacola, Florida to be exact.  With the support of my mom, dad, and two brothers, I have always been a “go-getter”.  I graduated from High School when I was 16 years old.  I then went to college at The University of Florida where I was on the track and field team.  I graduated from college in three years with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology, a minor in Education, and specialization in Criminal Justice. I then moved to California to pursue acting, modeling, and law school. Out of these three, law school was the only thing that worked out;  I earned my law degree from the University of West Los Angeles College of Law

During the years before and during law school I did many things, I worked and/or volunteered with Juveniles in a Florida Regional Juvenile Detention Center, after-school enrichment programs for families with little or no income, legal aid clinics , a Family Law Firm and a Civil Litigation firm, and a Real-Estate Firm.  It was during this period that I realized what I did and did not want to do for the rest of my life.  I realized that I truly have a passion for helping the under-represented and making a difference in their lives.  So, immediately upon getting my license to practice law, I opened my law firm, The Law Office of Merissa V. Grayson, a firm dedicated to helping individuals and their families resolve problems in order to build a better future.

I created this blog so that I can connect with you, my readers, clients, friends, family, co-workers, and whoever else is interested in legal topics/issues that are relevant to, can have an impact on, and somehow commonly arise in the lives of individuals and their families.
