Meltzer & Bell, P.A.

Meltzer & Bell, P.A. consists of Lawrence Meltzer and Steven Bell. When they first met they were not a team — in fact, they were on the opposite sides of the court room. Lawrence Meltzer was an assistant state attorney in Broward County, prosecuting crimes from DUI to sexual offenses. Steven Bell was a public defender, defending South Floridians against felony charges and leading the juvenile division.

Both were impressed by each other's passionate and skilled advocacy in the courtroom and the depth of the other's knowledge of Florida criminal law. Once Mr. Meltzer and Mr. Bell’s dedication to the public sector and government work came to a close, they devoted themselves to the defense of those accused of crimes in Palm Beach County courts and other surrounding counties, including Broward and Miami-Dade.

In 2013, they decided to put their expertise and experience together to form Meltzer & Bell, P.A. in West Palm Beach. Together, they are a team of defense lawyers who put their full efforts toward fighting for the rights of their clients.

Meltzer & Bell, P.A. represents people both in state courts in South Florida and at the Paul G. Rogers U.S. Courthouse in West Palm Beach. In addition to defense at trial, our attorneys also handle criminal appeals.
