Dean Mead is a business law firm that represents businesses and individuals throughout Florida. The cornerstone of our practice is our commitment to clients. We strive to fully understand each client’s business operations and objectives because we recognize that the most successful legal solutions are the result of a strong relationship between a law firm and its clients.

Firm History

In 1980, eight attorneys established the business law firm of Dean, Mead, Egerton, Bloodworth, Capouano & Bozarth, P.A. in Orlando.  The founders were Stephen T. Dean, Robert W. Mead, Jr., Charles H. Egerton, Darryl M. Bloodworth, Albert D. Capouano, Stephen J. Bozarth, Lauren Y. Detzel and Lynn J. Hinson. The majority of the founding partners remain active leaders in the firm today including Mr. Mead, Mr. Egerton, Mr. Bloodworth, Mr. Bozarth and Ms. Detzel.

 

In 1987, Dean Mead attorney Michael D. Minton returned to his hometown of Fort Pierce to open an office in what is known as Florida’s Treasure Coast region. The office has expanded to represent a diverse client base from Palm Beach County to Indian River County and conducts business under the name Dean, Mead, Minton & Zwemer.

 

In 1989, Dean Mead opened its initial office in Brevard County, as R. Mason Blake and other firm attorneys began intensive work on the new town of Viera. This was followed by the establishment of Dean Mead’s Merritt Island office in 1992. In 2003, those offices were combined into one

Dean Mead’s Tallahassee office opened on December 1, 2013 marking the firm’s fifth office in Florida. The Tallahassee office is home to six attorneys including Peter Dunbar, Martha Edenfield, John Wharton, Cari Roth, Bill Townsend and Brittany Finkbeiner. The Tallahassee-based Government Relations, Lobbying and & Administrative Law team advises businesses and public sector clients on a wide range of services including: Administrative Law, Agri-business Regulation and Permitting, Commercial Litigation, Government Regulations and Legislative Advocacy, Land Use and Environmental Law, Professional Licensure Defense, Real Property and Condominium Law, Utility Law and Regulation, State and Federal Taxation, and Water Resources, Permitting and Regulation.  Expanding our statewide footprint to Tallahassee was the key to Dean Mead’s long-range, strategic growth plan.  The benefit to our clients is a dedicated team of attorneys who offer a unique understanding of government policy and access to the key decision-makers.

The Tampa office of Dean Mead was opened in 2015 with shareholder Melanie Griffin leading the expansion efforts into Tampa Bay.
