Practicing in Bartlett Since 1977
My name is J. Melanie Slaughter, and through my law firm, J. Melanie Slaughter, P.A., in Ocala, Florida, I devote my time and resources to helping individuals and families with their most important and serious legal challenges. Serving all of Marion County and the surrounding areas, my law firm provides high-quality, dependable representation in both criminal defense and family law to help those who are facing legal issues involving any of the following:
All types of criminal charges, including DUI/DWI, drug charges, domestic violence charges, probation violations and more, as well as assisting with appeals and post-conviction relief
Divorce, child custody and support, property division, alimony, domestic violence allegations, and post-judgment modifications and enforcements
Certified as a criminal defense trial attorney by The Florida Bar, I have over 20 years of experience advocating on behalf of my clients' rights in both state and federal courts. Having once served as a criminal prosecutor, I understand how the criminal justice system works from both sides, and I use this insight to devise the most effective defense strategies possible for those who seek my counsel.
