Introduction
Melinda Morris
Morris Law Firm, P.A.
111 Second Avenue NE, Suite 515
St. Petersburg, FL 33701
727-388-4736

Background: 

I have been practicing law since 1999, and I am the managing attorney of the Morris Law Firm.  As a former Assistant State Attorney with the Sixth Judicial Circuit in Clearwater, Pinellas County, FL, I handled thousands of cases from investigation through sentencing. The experience prosecuting cases, along with my extensive experience as a criminal defense attorney allows me to aggressively defend my clients.


Experience:

While a felony prosecutor for the State Attorney’s Office in Pinellas County, I served as a member of the DUI Manslaughter/Vehicular Homicide Squad, a Lead Trial Attorney, a Domestic Violence Prosecutor, and a Child Abuse Prosecutor. I have participated in over 50 jury trials, and I have first‐hand experience and jury trials for First Degree Murder, Manslaughter, Capital Sexual Battery, Robbery, Aggravated Assault, Aggravated Battery, Battery, DUI, Domestic Violence, Drug Possession, Grand Theft Motor Vehicle and Petit Theft.


Education:

I attended Stetson University where I received both a Juris Doctorate (Law Degree) and a Masters of Business Administration (MBA). Stetson University College of Law is ranked No. 1 for trial advocacy and No. 5 for legal writing by U.S. News & World Report and has provided me an outstanding legal foundation.

My MBA degree in addition to my JD degree enables me to understand the nuances and intricacies of business and corporate procedure, and allows me to provide representation for those clients accused of White Collar Crimes.

Melinda -  Thanks for summarizing the Smallwood case.   Yep, these small devices contain a ton of personal information.  It would be "nice" if someone would benchslap the DHS and similar "intelligence" agencies for detaining journalists upon re-entry to the U.S. and seizing their devices as if the Fourth Amendment never existed.
