Providing You With Passionate, Efficient And Exceptional Legal Representation
When you need an experienced attorney for your case, simple or complex, turn to me, attorney Doug Mercier.
Providing Legal Direction For Clients
Throughout Mississippi For More Than 25 Years
Capable Of Resolving Your Legal Matter
If there is anything I have learned over the past 28 years as a practicing attorney, it’s that legal matters don’t come in the same neat little packages. Each case has a unique set of facts and law that the right attorney can use to win the client’s case. That’s why you need an attorney who has the knowledge, skill and experience necessary to use your specific facts and law to win your case.
I am Doug Mercier, and I am that attorney.
At my firm, Douglas G. Mercier, PA, I offer my credentials to protect your rights, recover damages for you, and counsel and defend you if your license or livelihood is at stake. I don’t try to be a jack of all trades. Instead, I limit my practice to personal injury cases, professional license defense, criminal defense, family law, business and health care law.
Skilled, Detailed and Knowledgeable Counsel When You Need It Most
In addition to a practice focused on personal injury and litigation, for much of my career I have provided legal representation to physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, dentists, pharmacists and other licensed health care professionals in Mississippi to assist with licensing issues before their respective administrative Boards and state agencies, as well as providing counsel on health care law issues. In the course of that representation, I obtained expansive knowledge and developed a deep understanding of the complexities of the regulations, statutes and procedural rules of each individual state agency, and how to utilize that knowledge to my clients’ benefit.
I apply my administrative law knowledge and experience gained over the years to each professional license case that I handle for my clients, whether it’s a matter before the Mississippi State Board of Medical Licensure, Mississippi Board of Nursing, Mississippi State Board of Dental Examiners or the Mississippi Board of Pharmacy. When your medical license, nursing license or other professional license is at risk, it is a threat to your livelihood. You deserve to have an attorney in your corner who understands the law and how to protect your license.
Compassionate. Detail-Oriented. Willing To Go The Extra Mile.
Compassion, attention to detail and willingness to go the extra mile for my clients are perhaps three characteristics that set me apart in the legal world. My clients see and appreciate this approach because it’s clear in its purpose and direction: My attention is focused on you and on getting you a positive outcome.
From looking at a case from every angle and working with experts in their field to get the full story, to taking the time to answer questions and providing clarification on the next steps, I will go that extra mile for you.
Whether I am passionately advocating for you and your rights in the courtroom, or pursuing a fair settlement or outcome at the negotiation table, know that I will take a practical and sensible approach. Your wishes and goals will take precedence, and in the end, I will adapt my approach and take the path that makes the most sense for you and your particular case.
