About Us

Attorney Chelsea Merta and Lotus Law & Legal Services


We are a one-lawyer law firm that primarily provides legal representation on criminal and traffic matters in the St. Louis area. We generally serve the "gap" demographic -- that is to say, the persons who make too much income to qualify for legal aid but who cannot afford an attorney at the larger firms. By embracing alternative payment methods outside of the traditional (and unpredictable) billable hour, our firm works to provide affordable, quality legal representation to persons from all backgrounds. 

Our practice is built on three core values: diligent & competent legal representation, mindful & productive communication, and holistic practice of law.  Schedule your free legal consultation over the phone with Attorney Chelsea Merta by calling (314) 896 - 3782.

Our firm is unique because we believe that our core values should inform how we focus on our practice areas, instead of letting our practice areas influence our values.

Anchored by the family of principles known as "holistic law," we approach each legal issue from a wide-angled perspective. We strive to provide services that consider the whole person - her or his emotions, values, concerns, goals, particular family dynamics, and so much more. That means Attorney Chelsea Merta not only guides our clients through the legal system - we also partner with our clients to develop unique solutions that can meaningfully resolve their unique circumstances.
