A true Central Florida girl, Merideth grew up in Clermont, with roots in the community on her father’s side all the way back to 1913! She has been in the full-time practice of law for over twenty-two years in Tallahassee, Chicago, and Central Florida, with experience working for Florida Supreme Court Justice Barbara Pariente, banks, business owners, developers, brokers, realtors and individual customers. Since 2005, Ms. Nagel has focused her practice in Lake, Sumter, Orange and Marion counties, with offices centrally located in Clermont, Florida.
Ms. Nagel loves her life and is proud to be an attorney. She does not identify herself through her many accomplishments, but rather in her ability to give of herself to others. She finds value in helping clients navigate the often difficult legal roads of life and business, and forging relationships with them based on mutual caring and respect—relationships she hopes will last a lifetime.
Ms. Nagel is a mother of three boys, ages 23, 14, and 7. Ms. Nagel has been married for over 26 years to her high school sweetheart, the Rev. Dr. Leon Bloder, Senior Pastor of the Shepherd of the Hills Presbyterian Church. In her limited spare time, Ms. Nagel enjoys travel, scuba diving, boating and cooking. She is a rabid Florida State Seminoles and Denver Broncos football fan and has become a cut-throat fantasy footballer.
She is very active in the community, serving in the past and presently on almost every professional and civic board and non-profit in the area, including the South Lake Chamber of Commerce, the South Lake Community Foundation, the Lake County Education Foundation, the Cornerstone Hospice Foundation, the Pig on the Pond board and Leadership Lake County.
The Law Firm of Merideth Nagel, P.A. opened its doors in 2005 with one focus — “changing the world one client at a time.” True to this mission, Merideth has dedicated her time to helping her clients face whatever life throws at them, and assembling a staff of lawyers and employees dedicated to making a difference. She is available for consultation during regular business hours in person, via telephone, or Skype, and after hours and on the weekend by appointment.
