Have you been arrested or injured? Meldon Law is here to help because you matter most!
Thank you for taking the time to find out more about me. I am currently a partner with the Meldon Law. Before joining the Meldon law firm in 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 misdemeanor DUIs to capital felonies. In 2008, the 7th Judicial Circuit State’s Attorney’s Office promoted me to the Special Prosecution Unit.
I was born and raised in Gainesville and attended the College of William and Mary where I played on the Varsity Tennis Team and focused my education on the subjects of History and Economics. I later studied law at Stetson’s College of Law.
One of my life highlights was having my grandfather, Stetson Law Alum Maurice Wagner , present me with my diploma in 2005. My grandfather started practicing in Miami Beach in the early 1950s and a was a true trailblazer in the field of personal injury law. Maurice dedicated his life to fighting for justice and was awarded one of the highest distinctions by the Florida Supreme Court, the Tobias Simon award. In 2017, I returned to our family’s roots in South Florida where Maurice began his trial practice 80 years ago.
Now I run the Meldon Law firm with my father, the legendary Jeffrey Meldon. We have a full service firm with 5 lawyers and over 20 staff spread out through three Florida locations. Jeffrey and I take the time know our clients individually as it’s our honor to serve them.
I enjoy spending time with friends, both old and new. The most enjoyable aspect of my career are the long lasting relationships that have developed with many of my clients.
My interest is in trial practice involving criminal defense and personal injury cases.
