Personal Injury Attorney | Accident Lawyers | Jacksonville, Florida

Our firm believes that everyone deserves justice and the finest legal representation at a fair price and to be treated with respect and personal attention – to personally know their lawyer.  A lawyer must fight, but also must have compassion. We live in a world where injury claims are treated like “fast food,” lawyers spend millions advertising to collect as many cases as they can.  You are not a “case.”  You are a person.  With a problem.  And need help. Your story matters.

John’s grandfather and great grandfather practiced law in a world that was less about “self” and the dollar and more about advocating for those who needed someone trustworthy to fight for them. John’s mission is to help people one-by-one and develop friendships with his clients along the way.  Personal attention is still available in the practice of law.If you hire a lawyer and don’t meet with a lawyer from day one, you’ve hired the wrong lawyer.

Experienced Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Lawyer

John Phillips and his staff have the legal experience and resources to properly use the justice system to help clients. From the handling of the ordinary or extraordinary automobile wreck, to jury trials covered by Good Morning America, from appealing to the highest courts in the land that more must be done to protect victims of bullying, to sitting beside a client as she testifies before the U.S. Senate, John and his team have the resources and experience to get the job done- however small, however big.

We take pride in our state-of-the-art courtroom technology.  Each personal injury attorney in the firm is adept at using focus groups and mock juries and innovative, demonstrative evidence. The firm is equipped with a state-of-the-art computer system, video production, and John has more anatomic and biological models than many physicians in town.  It’s a science and we work hard to know the science very well and convey it to adjusters, jurors, judges and you simply and passionately.

Our firm has many million dollar verdicts and settlements to our credit in cases ranging from soft tissue injuries to brain damage cases, as well as many favorable criminal defense verdicts, dismissals and plea bargains. In four of the past five years, John’s clients have received verdicts or settlements of over $1 million dollars on multiple occasions.
