Attorney Bryan B. Merce
Bryan B. Merce joined Grauer & Kriegel LLC in 2021. Prior to joining the firm, for many years he worked for large law firms in Pennsylvania and Illinois representing both injured workers and employers in workers’ compensation and Social Security cases. Mr. Merce has extensive trial experience in workers’ compensation cases in both Pennsylvania and Illinois. He has secured several awards and settlements for his injured clients.
Bryan’s empathy and compassion for injured people is what led him to once again represent injured workers. His prior experience representing employers provides him with the knowledge to anticipate the employers’ arguments and strategies which allows him to efficiently counter them for his clients.

He is a member of the Illinois State Bar Association, Illinois Trial Lawyers Association and Illinois Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Association.
