Robert B. Meadows For Judge
Born in Vero Beach Bob is very proud to be 5th generation of the Howard pioneer family. His parents both graduated from Vero Beach High School. His dad, Ron Meadows, played football for the Fighting Indians. His grandparents, Bob and Polly Stanbridge, owned Peggy’s Bake Shop in downtown Vero Beach.
His career path began as a teenager with a dream to become a police officer. He achieved that dream and spent 16 years as a law enforcement officer.
Another dream was realized at 43 years old, when he put himself through law school and became an attorney that has practiced law for 13 years. He has been involved in more than 3000 criminal cases, hundreds of them going to trail here in our local courtrooms.
Bob is Certified and practices law at both the State and Federal Court levels.
Bob for Circuit Court Judge
Bob knows what it is to have to tell the parents of a teenager that their child has died in an accident. He knows firsthand what it is to look in the eyes of a victim of sexual assault. And he knows what it is to arrest and assist in the prosecution of criminals of all levels, from first degree murder to DUI.
He also knows firsthand what it is to see and defend a family devastated by false accusations. He is acutely aware of the affects and effects of the law from all sides.
Being inside the courtrooms at the Circuit level on a daily basis gives him an acute awareness of the process and the role that everyone inside those courtrooms must perform; from the attorneys to the accused, to the law enforcement officers to the Judge. Being inside our jails and prisons continuously, he knows what goes on inside those walls as well.
It is decades of experience within our justice system that Bob brings to the honored position of Circuit Judge. To have this immeasurable insight that can only be gained through actual hands on work will give all of those that will come into a courtroom that he will preside over the justice that they deserve.
There are few that have presided over our courts that have as diversified experience as Bob Meadows. It is this invaluable experience that he will bring to the bench that makes him uniquely qualified to be elected as Circuit Judge.
