The Law Offices of John M Phillips is a full service AV rated law firm. Martindale rates firms and lawyers. The rating of “AV-Preeminent” is the highest rating bestowed on only about 10% of all attorneys. Our firm specializes in handling significant cases that are difficult or are destined for trial in Florida, Georgia or Alabama. We represent businesses and individuals in multiple capacities. Given past experience on both sides of most types of disputes, we are available to assist clients “24-7″. Personal, honest service is the only way the lawyer/client relationship will work.

When my great grandfather, Arthur G. Busby, founded his law practice, and ultimately became Judge, things were different. Personal relationships mattered. Compassion mattered. He passed away behind the very bench from which he served the people of Mississippi.

When my grandfather, Arthur George Busby, Jr., stepped into his shoes, he served clients one-on-one. He didn’t even have a secretary… just an office, a typewriter, some law books and an insatiable desire to serve the public. Both were very good attorneys and served businesses and people without reservation of who they were as long as they could help. First and foremost, it was about advocacy for those that needed the help. My grandfather’s clients knew him and my family.

In this day and age, most clients don’t know their lawyer and are dissuaded from personal relationships with them. Some choose a lawyer simply based on “slick” or reprehensible advertisements, many of which bring shame to the profession. Some blindly call 1-800 phone numbers to “ask” a non-lawyer for help picking an attorney. Do you KNOW the LAWYER that represents you? Don’t get lost in the shuffle. Do your research and hire a capable trial attorney.

Know me and I will know your situation. Whether it is because you have been injured in an accident or are in a contract dispute with a business, we are here to advise and advocate, fight and protect.

We primarily focus on personal injury, automobile accident and commercial disputes. Call us 1-800-6-Know Law.

We also assist other law firms that need the assistance of experienced trial counsel at any phase of a case. John is a peer rated AV -Preeminent lawyer, as rated by Martindale. He is a 2-time SuperLawyer and rated 10/10 on avvo.com. He was voted best lawyer in Jacksonville and one of the top 100 in the State. Simply put, credentials matter, but integrity and hard work matter more. Let us show you our way.
