Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me. I have been a Florida Trial Lawyer since 1971 when I had my first jury trial in Gainesville, and I have been in and out of the courtroom ever since. As a Trial Lawyer I enjoy helping people get their lives back together after a serious accident or an arrest. I consider myself an expert in negotiating settlements as well as trying cases in the courtroom. I have the determination and experience to go head to head with the big and powerful insurance companies that try to take advantage of people who were injured through no fault of their own. I always fight hard to get every one of...

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.

Drawing upon more than five years of practiced legal expertise, Mr. Pickens excels as an associate attorney with Meldon Law. Born and raised in Crescent City, Florida, he focuses his practice on driving under the influence (DUI) and criminal defense cases. Mr. Pickens continues to further his knowledge of these areas by regularly attending seminars and conferences.

Coming soon.

Tanner brings a unique perspective having worked on both sides of a case. As a former prosecutor and public defender, Tanner is at home in the courtroom and excels at trial practice Having negotiated thousands of cases over nearly 15 years, Tanner is well-versed in the details that make a great case and equally adept at finding those issues that can sink his opponents’ case instantly. Tanner understands that you’re not just a case number but a human being with a compelling story and will make sure your voice is heard.
