Please join us in our efforts to provide direct relief to the victims in Puerto Rico suffering in the aftermath of this hurricane season.

Carlos J. Melendez, Esq. was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and moved to the States when he was fourteen years old. He has spent more than twenty-five years in Central Florida where he and his wife, who is also of Puerto Rican descent, are raising their family.
