I am Carey Meldon, currently an Associate Attorney with Meldon Law. Before joining the 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 where I handled high profile sex crime cases, including sexual battery, child pornography and molestation investigations.

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. After many years, I have returned to my hometown to work with my father, Jeffrey Meldon. 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. The main focus of my current practice is defending drivers who have been accused of DUI in Central Florida.
