In Memoriam: Ronald S. Melamed


We at Moore & Van Allen grieve the loss of our friend and partner Ronald S. Melamed, who passed away on August 4, 2022, after living for seven years with pancreatic cancer. Ron carried on with grace and humor. He will be remembered for his inexhaustible spirit and his unwavering positivity in the face of adversity. In this, as in many things, Ron was an example to us all.

Ron was a talented and highly respected attorney. He graduated from the University of Michigan, where he obtained both his undergraduate degree and his JD. Ron joined Moore & Van Allen in 2007, where he developed a strong commercial real estate practice. He represented developers, landlords, tenants, and public and private corporations. He was ranked in Best Lawyers in America, Real Estate Law, both in 2021 and 2022.

We keep in our thoughts and prayers Ron’s wife, Ella Melamed, and their dogs Maddie and Asher, as well as Ron’s extended family. Donations in memory of Ron may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
