Biography

Board Certified Criminal Trial Lawyer. Assistant Public Defender 1999-2002. Private Practice 2003—.

Criminal Defense Lawyer in St Lucie, Indian River, Martin, Okeechobee

Brian Mallonee is a take-charge advocate and a well disciplined trial lawyer. He has defended thousands of cases and has extensive experience in all phases of the criminal justice system. This includes pre and post-arrest investigations, negotiating charging decisions with the prosecutor's office, creative motion practice, plea bargaining, bench trials, jury trials, appeals, and post-conviction matters. Mr. Mallonee is licensed to practice in all Florida state courts and the Southern District of Florida's Federal courts.

Mr. Mallonee has built a reputation for winning cases that others wouldn't dare attempt. By working tirelessly for his clients, he has won dozens of outright acquittals in serious felony cases where the odds seemed stacked against the defense. Mr. Mallonee has also gotten Judges to throw out key evidence in countless criminal cases by creatively arguing search and seizure violations by the police. Whether it's a DUI, a drug case, child pornography, or Murder, Brian Mallonee knows how to handle it.

Mr. Mallonee is AV rated by the Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings service, which evaluates lawyers and law firms in the United States and Canada. Ratings are based on the confidential opinions of members of the Bar and the Judiciary, including both those who are rated and those who are not. There are two components to Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings:

1. The General Ethical Standards Rating denotes adherence to professional standards of conduct and ethics, reliability, diligence and other criteria relevant to the discharge of professional responsibilities. The General Recommendation Rating is: V - Very High. A lawyer must receive a General Ethical Standards Rating before his or her review can proceed to the next step.

2. Legal Ability Ratings take into consideration the standard of professional ability in the area where the lawyer practices, the lawyer's expertise, and other professional qualifications. If a lawyer's practice is limited or specialized, an AV Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating is indicative of preeminent ability in that particular field.

Mr. Mallonee is board certified in criminal trial law, which recognizes attorneys' special knowledge, skills and proficiency in various areas of law and professionalism and ethics in practice.

Certification is the highest level of evaluation by The Florida Bar of the competency and experience of attorneys in the 24 areas of law approved for certification by the Supreme Court of Florida. Established in 1982 by the Florida Supreme Court, board certification helps consumers identify specialists in various areas of law.

Mr. Mallonee was destined to become a criminal defense lawyer all along. He was making creative arguments soon after he could talk. He studied criminology as an undergraduate at the University of Florida. He worked as a licensed private investigator when he was 19 years old. During that time his employer was contracted to do criminal investigations for the public defender's office. This is where he learned to pound the pavement and find witnesses that were vital to the mounting of a defense. He also interned with the Department of Justice in Washington, D.C. researching federal criminal legal problems that helped inform policy makers about key issues.

In 1995, Mr. Mallonee accepted an invitation to attend one of the top law schools in the country, Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. While attending SMU, he was given the opportunity to be part of a select group to study the law in Oxford, England for a summer. He also participated in the Criminal Clinic program during his third year at SMU, representing people accused of crimes while still in law school. After graduating in the top half of his class, Mr. Mallonee passed the bar exam and moved back to his hometown of Fort Pierce, Florida.

Mr. Mallonee took a job as an assistant public defender in vero beach in 1999. He was transferred to the fort pierce office a year later and represented thousands of clients in his 3+ years with the Public Defender's Office. After completing his Jedi training at the Office of the Public Defender, he moved on to private practice at the beginning of 2003, opening the Law Office of Brian H. Mallonee.

These days, when he's not conducting an investigation, researching a motion, or making arguments in the courtroom, Brian enjoys playing golf, watching football, and 'family time'.
