Merle Wilberding is a business lawyer and partner for one of Dayton’s oldest and largest Dayton-based law firms, Coolidge Wall. Merle is an author of many books and publications as well as a community volunteer. Some years ago, Merle decided that he wanted to embrace the true spirit of Dayton, so he sold his suburban home and moved to the city of Dayton. His new location allows him to walk to his favorite restaurant (The Pine Club) and his downtown Dayton office. He is now also in walking distance to his favorite entertainment and recreation venues, including the Dayton Dragons. Merle has an extensive background that would allow him to live, work, and play anywhere, yet he prefers to embrace the contagious spirit of Dayton!
