At the Law Offices of Ronald E. Sholes in Jacksonville, Florida, we bring a military-like commitment to our criminal defense and personal injury cases. Each of our attorneys had a long career of service in the U.S. military prior to law school!

Firm Overview

Each of our attorneys had a long career of uniformed service in the U.S. military prior to law school. Our investigator served more than 20 years in the Navy. the same positive spirit of teamwork, preparation, and commitment to mission that successfully saw us through such postings as Iraq, Kuwait, Korea and Bosnia, animates our approach to client service today.

In criminal cases, we emphasize prompt investigation and early engagement with the prosecution so that we can go immediately to work in showing why you should get a break or not be charged at all. Whether you are charged with a drug crime or sex crime, a DUI or another traffic offense, we will handle your case with the strength and determination needed to reach a successful outcome.

We also focus heavily on mitigating circumstances at all stages of a criminal case, which helps many of our clients resolve their felony or misdemeanor case on highly favorable terms without a trial. However, we will prepare your case as if we were going to court. This helps resolve cases favorably -- the prosecution realizes we are ready to go!

Our approach to personal injury litigation also emphasizes early investigation and presentation of your claims to opposing insurance companies in cases involving car accidents or truck accidents; brain, spine or other serious injuries, and wrongful death.

We answer our phones 24 hours a day and we are always available to answer questions-even if you call while being pulled over on suspicion of DUI or at the scene of an accident.

The Law Offices of Ron Sholes

Florida Personal Injury Attorney Ron Sholes is a 10-year military veteran who was born and raised in Illinois and has made Florida his home for over 20 years. Ron received his undergraduate degree from Southern Illinois University while serving on active duty in the U. S. Navy, and his law degree from the University of Florida. Ron is admitted to practice in all Florida State Courts.

During his 10 years of service on active duty, Ron served in the Gulf War in Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm, the Bosnian Conflict, and in several Counter-Narcotics Operations in the Southern Caribbean Sea and Eastern Pacific Ocean. Among other things, he was awarded the National Defense Service Medal, the Southwest Asia Service Medal, the Kuwaiti Liberation Medal, and two Navy/Marine Corps Achievement Medals. Ron is also an active member of the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars, associations of service members who served during times of war.

Now, Ron is dedicated to vigorously fighting for the rights of the firm's clients. Ron prides himself on providing the best possible legal representation. This includes the personal service that you expect and deserve from a law firm. Ron understands this and that is why each of his clients has his personal cell phone number.

Ron understands that your case is likely the most important thing going on in your life, and regardless of the scope of your particular case, you need your questions answered.

When it comes to Personal Injury cases, Ron and the firm's attorneys understand that aggressive representation is a must! After an accident you should focus your energies on recovery, not dealing with insurance companies whose boards of directors are more interested in showing a huge profit for their investors. The big insurance companies have hired lobbyists to influence legislators to enact tort reforms and reduce awards to personal injury claimants. As an injured client you have rights for compensation for your losses and suffering. That's why you need a strong legal team like ours fighting for you.

In addition to Personal Injury Law, Ron also represents clients in other areas of law such as Criminal Defense, DUI and Drug Defense, Medical Malpractice, and Family Law. Visit for information about those practice areas.
