Florida Personal Injury Trial Attorney Michelline Haynes Ruth is from the Washington, DC area, and has made Jacksonville her home for more than 20 years. Michelline completed her under-graduate degree at the University of Maryland and then went on to pursue her Law degree at Georgetown University Law School.

A U.S. Army veteran, Capt. Michelline Haynes served with the Army’s 25th Infantry Division Judge Advocate General Office in Hawaii and completed the Army Air Assault Combat Training School.

Michelline is a fighter and she brings that same military spirit and sense of service, commitment and dedication to the Law Firm of Military Veterans.

She is a seasoned personal injury trial attorney and a board certified civil trial attorney. Michelline has over 30 years of legal experience, including more than 13 years as an insurance defense attorney. Most recently, Michelline was Lead Defense Counsel for GEICO Insurance throughout Northeast Florida. Prior to her time at GEICO, Michelline was with Allstate Insurance, where she quickly built a reputation as a no-nonsense trial attorney. She has handled every type of injury claim imaginable. From whiplash and serious injuries, to wrongful death cases, she’s done it all. Now, she’s fighting for Florida’s injured with the Law Firm of Military Veterans. Most recently, Michelline has been involved in several million dollar and six figure recoveries for the firm’s clients through her litigation efforts.

Michelline also served 12 years with the Jacksonville State Attorney’s Office as a Felony Division Chief. She has the distinction of handling everything from misdemeanors to murder charges, in both military and civilian courts. She is one of four former state prosecutors at Ron Sholes, P.A., and her vast knowledge and experience in criminal law significantly enhances the firm’s criminal defense practice, as well.

Call the Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A. if you or a loved one have been injured, regardless of whether it is a serious injury or something that may seem minor. Often, what seems like even minor injuries can result in a lifetime of pain and suffering and medical treatment.
