Jonathan Meltz SAVED our family
Jonathan Meltz is the best attorney I've ever known. In the few instances where myself or my family have been in a stressful/frightening situation involving anything to do with the police, a criminal allegation or in need of expert, confidential, immediate, non-judgmental and excellent legal representation for any matter - he always answered my call or immediately called me back ready to assist. Recently, my elderly parents were the near victims of a terrible scam. Someone called them pretending to be my brother. The person was crying and in tears. He claimed to have been in an accident and in trouble with the police. He said he would need to be bailed out. They were about to pay this person...then I called Jonathan Meltz. Jonathan immediately surmised the situation and was able to advise us in a way that revealed it was a scam, saving my parents $8000. A few years ago I was pulled over by the police on Valentines Day for a failed tail light. The police then proceeded to engage in behavior towards me that was offensive and illegal (due to my sexual orientation). It was late at night, I was with my boyfriend, i was scared, and I had never been in trouble with the law. They then attempted to cite me for numerous other infractions because I complained. I immediately called Jonathan. His incredible experience, legal knowledge, caring demeanor quickly led to the case being dropped and an admonition of the officers involved by the judge. I am a college professor, and I sometimes hear from students that are in need of emergency legal representation. Jonathan has helped dozens of these young people, and almost always their cases have been resolved successfully. I'm not getting paid to write this, he is seriously just the most down to earth, caring, effective, attorney you will ever find. He is also not one of those attorneys that only cares about money and charging people a fortune. I promise you, if you need the BEST legal assistance, take a deep breath and call Jonathan Meltz. He can relate to your problem and he will do everything to get you out of your jam. He is amazing.

Helping in Healthcare
I reached out to Johnathan Meltz regarding a domestic case that could have potentially caused me to lose my license as a health provider which involved a conflict between myself and another family member. John was very compassionate and understanding of my case. Also, he was very efficient and professional. Fortunately, we were able to resolve this issue with the courts via Zoom and the case was dismissed. I also utilized his service to expunge this charge on my record. It took some time as he explained but I am a very satisfied client. Thank you so much Mr. Johnathan Meltz. I will recommend you to all.

An Attorney I can rely on
I have dealt with a few attorneys in the past and in comparison, Attorney Jonathan Meltz stands out as providing the best service. There was constant communication, providing status updates including responses from immediate actions that were taken. My urgency for representation was met with his kindness and ability to respond quickly. Thank you

Outstanding Attorney
Jonathan Meltz is an outstanding attorney in my opinion. Unfortunately, I found myself needing legal counsel not once, not twice, but 3 times for my teenage and not so teenage sons. I called Jonathan every time and he was readily available. I can't begin to explain how frightening these situations were for me and my sons. I am so happy I was able to have an honest, trustworthy, knowledgable, and highly respected attorney representing them. Jonathan took the time to explain the legal process and certain laws. He explained the gravity of the case to us but he managed to also give us cautious hope that everything would be alright. He took the time to counsel my sons in the errors of their ways and took the time to calm a sometimes hysterical mother. As we were in court many times, I would watch closely other attorneys arguing their cases and always came to the same conclusion, relieved to have Jonathan representing us. As a matter of fact, we were leaving the courthouse one day and a bailiff came to us to say hello to Jonathan and said to me that we had one of the best and highly respected attorneys representing us. I found that to be reassuring coming from a bailif. I would recommend Jonathan Meltz as legal counsel with absolutely no hesitation.

Best DUI lawyer in South FL.
My experience with Mr.Meltz was absolutely exceptional. I was involved in a horrible accident and charged with DUI with serious bodily injury (which is considered a felony). He went above and beyond with my case. Not only did he drop it from a felony to a misdemeanor but he was able to take it to trial and prove me innocent. The state had "evidence", pictures of open beer bottles in my car, witnesses at the scene that claimed I was intoxicated. Still, he was able to prove I was not impaired and I was found innocent. I highly recommend this attorney to anyone who's ever involved in a DUI/Criminal case.

Handling the case
Johnathan had a lot of knowledge of the case. He followed through and reviewed the witnesses and got with the prosecutor. I was very pleased with the final verdict.

Stay away!
I hired Jonathan for a felony battery I was charged for. I paid him $5000 initially and he never filed anything on my behalf. He would barely returned the calls. He kept telling me I had no chance. I decided to hire another COMPETENT AND KNOWLEDGEABLE attorney (Michael Haber) and my case was finally dismissed. If you want to throw your window out the window and be ripped off call Jonathan, otherwise my sincere advice: Stay away!
