Hi, I'm Merriel Bullock-Neal
For the last 19 years, I have been practicing law in the Montgomery County area. I have a law degree from Washington College of Law at American University, but I also have a background in education. With a Ph.D. in Special Education with support fields in clinical child psychology, family therapy, and counseling psychology, I am uniquely qualified to serve as judge. I have extensive legal experience as an attorney, Supreme Court Rule 31 Mediator, and Consultant, litigating cases in County, State, and Federal Courts. As an attorney, I've represented defendants and plaintiffs in both civil and criminal cases. My experiences extends to expungement clinics, manifestation hearings, teen court, IEP meetings, due process hearings, truancy hearings, and administrative hearings.
Committed to the Community.
In addition to my professional endeavors, I am deeply committed to serving Montgomery County. I'm a current member and past President of Clarksville Civitan, as well as the former Chair of the Two Rivers Chapter of the American Red Cross. I am a founding board member of the Clarksville-Montgomery County Boys & Girls Club and have chaired the Annual Joint Conference on Juvenile Justice for the past 11 years. I'm the Chair of Montgomery County Disproportionate Minority Contact Task Force, a member of the Montgomery County Allies for Substance Abuse Prevention, and a lifelong member of the NAACP.
