Attorneys at Law serving Ocala, Florida Since 1974

The attorneys, paralegals, secretaries and staff at Blanchard, Merriam & Adel, PA welcome you to review our areas of practice, and to consider the unique qualities of experience, professionalism, advocacy and legal counseling we provide. The firm was founded in November of 1974 by the current senior partner, Dock Blanchard, and for our work, we have been awarded the coveted “AV” preeminent rating by Martindale Hubbell, the highest honor given by the attorney rating service, indicating the highest ethical standards and professional ability. Although our office is in Ocala, Marion County, Florida, we do not limit our practice geographically. We handle cases throughout the State and the Nation.

Our firm is very unique in that we handle cases both for persons who seek a judicial determination of their rights and individuals who feel others are unjustly seeking to attack them. This gives us a unique perspective in that we are able to advise either side as to the advantages and pit-falls of any particular legal position or give advice relating to the strategic advantage of any particular position. We have found over the years that firms which represent only claimants (Plaintiffs) or who represent only those being sued (Defendants), often times lose sight of the objective advantages of looking at the issues from both sides. We are proud of our experience and our reputation and we look forward to your consideration of our firm for your legal needs.
