Experience, Expertise and the Value of one-to-one Relationships

Merrill, Arnone & Jones is a premier Sonoma County law firm that has been serving the needs of North Bay businesses for over 40 years. Based in Santa Rosa, the firm's 5 partners pride themselves on being problem solvers for both the community and their clients.

Many of the businesses served by Merrill, Arnone & Jones are not large enough to justify the expense of in-house legal staff. The firm strives to fill this need by learning as much as possible about each client and the issues that are important to their success. This includes the needs and desires of individual business owners who may have estate planning, family law or other personal legal needs.

As problem solvers, our attorneys provide expert legal services in a variety of industries. When the hospitality industry was looking for funding mechanisms to launch more focused destination marketing efforts, the firm worked with the Sonoma County Lodging Association to create the first county wide business improvement area in California. Public safety agencies throughout the County rely upon Merrill, Arnone & Jones to provide guidance on issues such as open meeting laws, elections and collaborative initiatives between special districts. To the wine industry, the firm brings expertise in the field of trademark protection and dispute resolution. For pilots and aviation businesses, the firm provides counsel on FAA enforcement actions, liability avoidance, regulatory compliance and the facilitation of purchase and sale transactions.

At Merrill, Arnone & Jones, we are dedicated professionals who care about the well-being of the firm's clients, and who genuinely enjoy working together. Support staff members are encouraged to upgrade skills by participating in trade organizations and attending continuing education classes.
