Our Experience Is Your Advantage

With Schmergel & Mersberger, PLC, clients get personal attention backed by a team approach with attorneys who have years of experience, leading to results.

Personal Attention And Legal Expertise

Classic Boutique, Modern Methods

Founding partners Sean P. Schmergel and Dennis M. Mersberger opened their law practice with a goal of providing clients with a law firm that strives to achieve the most efficient and cost-effective results.

Personalized Attention

We strongly believe that personalized attention to each client cannot be overvalued when it comes to resolving all manner of family law, traffic defense, and criminal defense legal matters. Clients should demand and can expect not only zealous representation but also a commitment to resolving each case in the most efficient manner, whether that means in court or by negotiation.

Unique Approach

At Schmergel & Mersberger, PLC, clients are afforded creative, open-minded and forward-thinking legal expertise based on years of experience in the local court systems. Each case is passionately pursued with the unique approach and individual attention it deserves.

Criminal Defense

We offer criminal defense clients the aggressive representation needed to ensure their rights are defended appropriately.

Family Law

Since our founding, we have provided clients with patient and understanding legal representation for family law matters.

Focused Representation

Schmergel & Mersberger, PLC is not a “general practice” law firm. We choose to dedicate our focus on only two main areas of the law: criminal defense and family law. Mr. Schmergel serves as lead counsel in all family law cases at the firm, and Mr. Mersberger leads the defense of the firm’s criminal and traffic cases. We believe that limiting our practice areas in this manner allows us to be more proficient in our respective practice areas and stay in touch with developments in the law, which translates to happy clients.

A Part Of The Community
We Represent

Our clients are part of the Northern Virginia and D.C. community. And so are we. We treat our clients like neighbors because they practically are. That’s why we provide dedicated, personal service and turn over every stone in the hopes of obtaining lasting, effective results.
