About me

I am currently an associate attorney with Meldon Law.  Before joining the firm in October, 2009, I practiced law in Daytona Beach with the State's Attorney Office for almost four years. During my employment as an Assistant State Attorney, I personally handled thousands of criminal cases ranging from misdemeanors to capital felonies. Nearly two years ago, the State's Attorney's Office promoted me to the Special Prosecution Unit where I handled high profile sex crime cases, including sexual battery, child pornography and molestation investigations. 



I was born and raised in Gainesville and attended the College of William and Mary where I played on the varsity tennis team. I then studied law at Stetson's College of Law, following in my grandfather, Maurice Wagner's footsteps. After many years, I have returned to my hometown to work with my father, Jeffrey Meldon.
My focus and interest is in trial practice involving criminal defense and personal injury cases.
