John M. Frazier, Jr. is a partner at Widerman Malek, PL that focuses on delivering a full range of litigation in both state and federal courts; including the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit and the Supreme Court of the United States as well as acting in advisory capacities for businesses and corporations reviewing contracts, documents, and providing legal feedback to aid and assist decision-makers.


When John is not in the courtroom litigating on behalf of his clients, John is actively advising business entities and individuals about nearly every legal aspect of operating a business or contractual matters and how to handle when things inevitably go wrong, such as: real estate disputes, employment issues, shareholder agreements, stock and asset purchase agreements, joint venture agreements, commercial leases, development projects, and breach of contract issues.


John has been a keynote speaker educating the public on the law and presenting before chambers of commerce, business leaders, rotary clubs, and as a keynote speaker on behalf of the Florida Bar’s Speaker Bureau in front of a county bar association ranging in topics from litigation, discovery practices, and conducting depositions. The Florida Bar Speakers Bureau promotes the understanding of the role of the judicial branch of government; the Constitution; the rule of law; and the role judges, lawyers and juries play the administration of justice through its Benchmarks program.


John has been featured by the Melbourne Regional Chamber on their podcast, 411 on the 321: Tales, Tenets, and Tips from Space Coast Business Leaders, in Season 3, Episode 8 where John discusses his path to become a lawyer and how the law firm handles legal issues. Furthermore, John has been featured as a Super Lawyer Rising Star in 2022 and 2023 for business litigation.


Prior to joining the firm, John operated Frazier Law, P.A. as a sole practitioner and was heavily involved in many areas of litigation and trial work; as a result, John has extensive trial experience and feels at home in a courtroom. John spent time as a “runner” for Widerman Malek in his youth and has worked his way up to becoming partner. John is the first and only attorney within his family and lettered in track and football, locally, at Melbourne High School. John has a strong commitment to his community and actively seeks out volunteering activities. He is most active in his role as a volunteer teacher for Junior Achievement of the Space Coast delivering K-12 programs that foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy skills to local classrooms.


John is also an officer and acting legal counsel for Downtown Melbourne/Melbourne Main Street. Melbourne Main Street is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that works to build public and private partnerships to revitalize Historic Downtown Melbourne. An accredited Main Street part of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Melbourne Main Street’s mission is to fuel economic growth by capitalizing on the community’s assets and paying particular attention to the physical, cultural, and social identity of Downtown Melbourne.


In 2022, John was appointed to serve on the Business Advisory Board of the City of West Melbourne. The board was established in 2009 to advise the City Council on how the City can implement measures that will promote, improve, and meet the needs of commercial establishments. This includes determining the commercial needs of citizens and businesses, surveying existing businesses, inventory of vacant commercial land and buildings, and recommending methods to enhance and promote business activity.


Lastly, John is driven by his passion to be a leader in the community and the courtroom, so much so that John is a graduate of the Leadership Brevard Class of 2020; a program founded in 1985 to develop Brevard’s top talent positioned to utilize leadership skills for the long-term benefit of the community. Outside of the law and philanthropic activities, John enjoys fishing, golfing, cooking (ask him about his BBQ sauce), technology, his family pets, and rooting for the Florida State Seminoles. However, more than anything else, John is motivated by his “why,” which consists of his beautiful wife, Courtney, and their family.

Criminal defense for my son
John was very professional , very informational and timely. Always returned my calls. Spent much time explaining the reality of what to expect. I will not use any other attorney for criminal law.

Great service and effort to solve a problem.
Mr. Frazier immediately engaged my problem and helped me resolve it quickly and in our best intrests. He could not have handled our situation better. Much to my surprise months later when I asked him for his opinion on another problem he gave us excellent advise without us having to come in for consultation. No doubt if me or my business ever needs a lawyer I will contact him 1st.

Thank you for representing me!!!!
Mr. John Frazier was a very personal and professional attorney. He took the time to study up on my specific mental illnesses, to better represent me. He was a one on one attorney, very easy going, thoughtful and kind. Therefore, I would definitely recommend Mr. Frazier to anyone in the future.

Very Professional
Mr. Frazier was very helpful with my probation violation case. I am new to the area and did not know much about the laws here in Florida. Scared as to what I was facing, I contacted his firm and gave him all the information I could about my case. Mr. Frazier handled all of my information very professional. Mr. Frazier was available at my bond hearing. I am very grateful for all the help that he provided me. I would recommend Mr. Frazier to everyone I know that needs an attorney.
