I am a partner at Rafidi, Pallante & Melewski, LLC.  I am the principal attorney in our Columbus and Dayton offices.  I handle matters throughout Central Ohio and the Miami Valley.  Throughout my career, I have handled well over one thousand injury cases.  My cases have covered the entire spectrum of personal injury and medical malpractice.  I have represented numerous families in wrongful death actions, I have represented individuals in soft-tissue injury claims, I have represented individuals injured in motorcycle, car and trucking accidents, I have represented individuals injured as a result of medical negligence, and I have represented individuals injured in animal attacks.  I have settled minor cases, and I have settled cases in excess of One Million Dollars.  As the saying goes, I have seen it all.


In addition to personal injury and medical malpractice, a large part of my practice is dedicated to Estate Planning.  I enjoy sitting down with clients, talking with them about their future, and devising an estate plan that best meets their needs.  Most often, this includes preparing a revocable living trust, or other estate planning documents, such as a last will and testament, living will, and healthcare power of attorney.



Attorney Pallante showed my wife and I great respect and spoke to us as if we were family. He is very honest, sincere and truly had our best interest in mind. I would highly recommend him as a lawyer.

Frank – Client

Since 2002, I have earned the respect of my colleagues and my clients.  In fact, some of my largest cases have been referrals from other attorneys, and referrals from former clients.  On numerous occasions, other attorneys have even referred their own family members to me, a gesture that shows the utmost trust and confidence in me.  I have earned their trust, and I assure you that I will earn your trust, too.



Jeff is honest and he acts in your best interest. Truly a gem !!!
