Meet Eric A. Melendez

Eric A. Melendez is a personal injury attorney in Jacksonville. Having worked in both pre-litigation and litigation, Eric truly excels in total case management. From the client’s first treatment and examining their insurance coverage to attending a mediation to get their case resolved, Eric charts the most efficient path towards securing the best recovery possible.

Having the Strength of the Entire Firm Behind Me

I’m extremely proud that I graduated at the top of my class in law school and earned pro bono honors along the way for time spent with the Public Defender’s Office. Even with many years now at Farah and Farah where I’ve worked on both the pre-litigation side where a case starts, and the litigation side, where a case can go all the way to a jury trial, there are still times when I want to get another professional’s opinion. At Farah and Farah, Eddie and Chuck really are always around, always with their doors open, and ready to talk when you need them.

From the top down, I am surrounded by so many other high quality legal professionals that I can always seek out for advice or to bounce an idea off of. This high level of individual support isn’t common in a firm our size, but is a huge contributing factor to why the firm still feels like a family and why I feel so empowered.

Giving Personal Injury Cases Personal Attention

One of my greatest strengths as a personal injury attorney is relating to my clients. I love that litigation allows me to be even more personal with my clients, helping them understand the process and getting to see a tangible result at the end. Litigation provides the opportunity to present my client’s story in the courts and have it be heard by those that can bring a decisive action.

Preparing for this takes a lot of work but having come up through pre-litigation, I understand all of the steps we need to take in order to produce the best outcome possible. When a case finally gets revolved and I get to see that weight just drop from my client’s shoulders, that’s the best part about being an attorney for me.

I Love Being an Auto Accident Attorney in Jacksonville

The Farah and Farah Jacksonville office is extremely close knit. Working together as a team, we’re able to serve a wide number of auto accident and slip and fall victims in the Jacksonville area. 

When I’m not in the office, I love spending time with my young (and growing!) family either at the beach or at one of the many hidden foodie gems we have around town. I don’t root against the Jaguars, except when they’re playing my home team, the New York Giants. Outside of football season, you can bet I’ll be watching the Mets, Knicks, or Kansas Jayhawks basketball team.
