Carey Meldon

Carey Meldon is currently Managing Partner with the Meldon Law Firm. Before joining the firm in 2009, he practiced law in Daytona Beach with the State’s Attorney Office for almost four years. During his employment as an Assistant State Attorney, he personally handled thousands of criminal cases ranging from misdemeanors, DUI(s), and capital felonies. In 2008, the 7th Judicial Circuit State’s Attorney’s Office promoted Carey to the Special Prosecution Unit, where he handled high-profile sex crime cases, including sexual battery, child pornography, and molestation investigations. Born and raised in Gainesville, Carey attended the College of William and Mary, where he played on the Varsity Tennis Team and focused his education on the subjects of History and Economics. He later studied law at Stetson’s College of Law. One of his life highlights was having his grandfather, Stetson Law Alum Maurice Wagner, present him with his diploma. After many years, he returned to his hometown to work with his father, Jeffrey Meldon. Carey’s interest is in trial practice involving criminal defense and personal injury cases. The main focus of his current practice is helping people who have been seriously injured in accidents.
