Mejia & Associates is a law firm specializing in several Law branches that works daily under the conviction of satisfying its clients’ needs on a base of solid legal knowledge and the principles of integrity, honesty, responsibility, and transparency.

From its establishment, this has been the standard of our Firm: To practice Law pursuant to solid ethical norms and attached to the most rigorous quality and delivery criteria. All of the trust and judicial certainty that we generate when we represent our clients is born from this.


Mejia & Associates formally begins operations in Panama City in August, 1999.  Its constitution was preceded by Mr. Jeronimo Emilio Mejia Edward’s private practice, who started in 1995 his performance as an independent professional in various branches of the profession.  Before, between 1984 and 1994, Mr. Mejia Edward served as Assistant to the Magistrate of the Criminal Chamber of the Supreme Court of Justice.  This intense experience in the dealings of the highest judiciary in the Republic of Panama gave him the chance to gain a total vision of the details that are particular to complex processes in Criminal, Constitutional, Civil, Commercial, and Labor matter; precisely this experience made Mr. Mejia Edward an expert in the technique required in the matter of Cassation.

Shortly it was clear for Mr. Mejia that he needed to expand his services and grow, since the client demand was rising.  He then determined to start recruiting Law professionals, selected based both in their professional and personal qualities.  It was in this moment that he decided to formally constitute, in August 1999, Mejia & Asociados Law Firm, with Mrs. Marjorie Wells as partner.

The Firm continued to provide services under the direction and leadership of Mr. Jeronimo Mejia, constituting itself as a renowned and prestigious law Firm specialized in matters related to Criminal Law and other specialties, attracting first level clients both nationally and internationally.  In the year 2008, Mr. Mejia separates from the Firm since he was appointed to occupy the seat of Judge of the Criminal Chamber of the Supreme Court of Justice.  His vision of maximum effort and total quality currently guide Mejia & Asociados.
