  • What… steps are you taking or planning to make it come true
  • When… was this, will it be, or will it make the most difference
  • Why… is your dream important to you
  • How… did you come to this schooling goal

Call it an Inspiration, Call it a Dream.

This Scholarship will be awarded to a college student or high-school senior student.

Cookies of 2022

Cookies for the Future

Each year the sales of Girl Scout cookies provide funds for great learning adventures, and other opportunities for girls.  

These Girl Scouts are learning a variety of valuable life skills while they are planning, setting up their sales pages, contacting the customers, delivering and reporting their sales of these delightful morsels.

The Girls Scouts did a terrific job of adjusting to sales with Covid restrictions.

Cookies Fun and Goals

This year our girls came from Troops located in Arlington, Granite Falls, Edmonds, Everett, Maltby and Mill Creek.

We asked what their Favorite Girl Scout activities were and their answers included:

The Mountain Shadows camp, which is a two night trip with sing-alongs, crafts and sports. Going on field trips to the pumpkin patch, zoo and the fire station. Earning badges, making ice cream, canoeing, animal tracking and other things like that. 

But at the heart of the matter, these Girl Scouts loved Camp, Camping, Camping! And more Camping!!

Our Girl Scouts Fundraising goals for this year.

  • Raising money to donate Build A Bears for kids in the hospital.
  • Fundraising for camping and community service projects!
  • Saving our money for a big trip in a couple of years.
  • We are also sending cookies to the troops overseas.

We are happy to help these Girl Scouts meet their goals and pursue their dreams.

Gotten many tickets dropped or the charge reduced to a non moving violation. Yes it would be great if they all could be dropped but at the end of the day my insurance is still affordable. Anyone leaving bad reviews about the Merrill's not getting a charge totally dismissed did not listen or read well enough when entering the contact as they make it very clear that both are a possibility.

Free Shred Event 2022

ProShred Truck

2022 Free Shred Event Complete

Thank you to everyone who made the Free Shred Event 2022 and Food Drive a Success. We were able to fill the truck completely this year.

At work on the shred pile at the Free Shred Event

The ProShred truck was late to arrive. They were over scheduled due to the unexpected loss of one of their trucks in a recent fire. However as soon as the truck arrived all of the boxes and bags that were dropped off were shred.

Clean up after the pile of shredding at the free shred event.

Free Shred Event 2022 Food Drive Results

We are happy to say that we filled a mini van with about 500 pounds of food donations and $300 dollars that were donated for the food bank.

Food Donations at the Free Shred Event.

We look forward to another amazing Event in January 2023

Dogs on the Job

Dogs on the Job

Dogs are on the job in the Courthouse providing support and encouragement. Their presence is giving some people the confidence to tell their story, and face the difficult, and daunting task of recounting a traumatic experience. 

Canines for More Than Cops

We have seen many kinds of service dogs in our world giving back to the community.  The concept of Courthouse Dogs was pioneered in 2003 right here in Washington State.  A King County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney working in Seattle came up with this tool for the Courthouse as the result of a trip to Canine Companions for Independence (CCI) with her son. 

Raise Your Right Paw

In December of 2004, Deputy Prosecutor Page Ulrey entered training with “Ellie”.  They went through an extensive training program before graduating and returning home to King County to become what is believed to be the first official Courthouse dog.  

Working Like a Dog

Courthouse dogs are in the business of providing emotional support with a soft look, a listening ear, an understanding wag, and comforting snuggle when needed.   They work several days a week assisting with witness statements and calming others in the high stress environment of the courtroom.

Speaking in public is difficult.

When in the courtroom there is the added stress of recounting the truth of possibly one your hardest days. Having a dog with you is like having an old friend there to help making it easier to talk, to remember, and to experience less anxiety.

Going to the Dogs

While it may seem surprising to see a courtroom going to the dogs, the results seem to be in the dogs favor.  They are a positive influence in allowing the truth to be heard so that justice may be upheld.

Atta Dog

We want to thank local members of this community who raise and train puppies to prepare them for many different acts of service.  Thank you to the trainers who work tirelessly to perfect these dogs specialized skills. Thank you to the partners who know and love these dogs best and put their services to work. Thank you to the Courts for Going to the Dogs!

To Shred or Not to Shred?

The Answer Is Shred…

Plan To Attend Our FREE Shred and Food Drive Event in January. Dates will be published well in advance.

FREE, FREE, FREE!

That’s right, there is no cost to bring your documents to The Law Office Of Rick H. Merrill where office employees will be onsite to help you carry boxes.

Documents will be destroyed by Proshed, a professional document destruction service with a mobile shredding unit.

You can watch your documents be shredded right before your eyes!

Last year ProShred happily shred several tons of documents at our event.  The truck does not accept CD’s or Paper Clamps.

A very special thank you to the guys from ProShred for jumping in to help make the event run smoothly and even helping to carry in the Food Donations at the end.

Donate Non- Perishable Food Items…

While sorting through documents and clearing out the house grab any non-perishable goods you may want to donate to help us support our local food banks.

Each year we have been blessed by your generosity to deliver a carload of food and cash donations to the Snohomish County Food Bank to help those in need. 

We look forward to another amazing Shred Event in January 2023

Donate to Beck’s Place to Help People and Pets

We are  collecting donations for Beck’s Place in Monroe.  

At Beck’s Place they are committed to helping people and pets move forward in life.  Keeping families together is important to Beck’s Place and pets are part of the family. 

The signature program that they offer is a fostering service for those who must leave their pets for medical care, treatment, or other safety reasons.  Melanie, founder of Beck’s Place, mentioned that there are many seniors who will refuse care, so they do not need to leave or lose their pets.

Knowing that when they return, their pet will be waiting to rejoin the family is important to many of these owners and allows them to make the choices needed to improve their lives. 

We want to thank Kaylan for the donation of these handmade scarves. Your kindness and thinking of others is appreciated.

Please Bring Your Donation for Beck’s Place to the Law Office of Rick Merrill

In addition to the fostering service, they meet needs related to food, supplies, cleaning, hygiene items, sleeping and outdoor supplies, and even clothing for both people and pets.

  • Cat and dog food
  • Dog sweaters or coats
  • Hygiene Items
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Sleeping or outdoor supplies
  • or other items noted on their website.

Helping in our local community is something that each one of us can do.  

We are accepting donations at 3625 Colby Avenue, Everett, WA 98201. During Business Hours.
