Whittel & Melton, LLC is a full service central Florida law practice with an emphasis on representing clients in all Personal Injury, Auto Accident, Wrongful Death tragedies, as well as all serious Criminal & DUI Defense. The firm was formed when Gainesville & Ocala Attorney Robert G. Whittel and Spring Hill & New Port Richey Lawyer Jason M. Melton joined their respective practices to better accommodate their clients.
Primarily working from the Hernando and Alachua County offices, full time injury law, and criminal defense paralegals, legal assistants and administrative staff, as well as private investigators and experts who work on a case-by-case basis, assist the five Florida lawyers at Whittel & Melton.
