At Meldon Law, We Fight for Justice for Accident Victims and for the Rights of Those Facing Criminal Charges.
Our dedicated Florida DUI, criminal defense & personal injury attorneys fight for justice for the victims of accidents, who through no fault of their own were injured or killed from: car, motorcycle, pick-up truck, tractor trailer (semi trucks), bicycle, or pedestrian accidents, and from medical malpractice, or wrongful death, also from negligence in slip and falls and dog bites and serious injuries. We also fight to protect the rights of individuals charged with DUI and other criminal charges.

Our main office is located in downtown Gainesville; however, we are a statewide law firm serving Gainesville, Ocala, Lake City, Inverness, and the entire North Florida region. We have another office located in Ocala, FL as well as another office located in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida that serves Broward, Palm Beach, and Miami Dade counties. We are a trial attorneys, litigators, and negotiators that concentrate in car accidents and personal injury, medical malpractice, DUI, criminal defense cases, and more.
Since founding his practice in 1971, Jeffrey Meldon has become a proud member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, which is one of the most prestigious groups of trial attorneys in the United States. Membership is limited to attorneys who have won million dollar verdicts and settlements. Fewer than 1% of attorneys in the country are members. Furthermore, attorney Jeffrey Meldon:
- Has gained an encyclopedic knowledge of subjects that are crucial to a successful case result. These include accident reconstruction, biomechanics, economics, vocational rehabilitation, engineering and medicine.
- Has become known throughout Florida by both trial attorneys and insurance company attorneys as a tough negotiator with exceptional trial skills.
- Has made it a point to confer with the best and most distinguished experts in medicine, vocational rehabilitation and accident reconstruction to help him prove his cases.
- Has every case thoroughly researched and investigated.
We are an established regional law firm that is dedicated to giving every single one of our clients the resources, expertise, and time that they deserve. To that end, we don’t accept every single case that walks through our door. Larger firms that spend millions on advertising are often no more than “settlement factories,” with crucial negotiations being handled by first year associates with barely any practical legal experience or even paralegals. That does not happen here!

- We do not take short cuts.
- We hire the best people in our field.
