Community Service

We strive to give our community MORE than we take from it. We have been apart of these events below. John is also on the Boards for the National High School Basketball Association, the Shannon Miller Foundation & speaks to students about ethics and passion.

“It’s about passion and compassion and it starts in the community, helping those with needs.  Our firm attitude is gratitude,” says John Phillips, the founding partner.

Currently, the firm is having its second annual toy drive for Toys for Tots-

And donated and helped a local Duval County Public School teacher shoot hoops to raise money for charity. Dewitt Robinson shot basketballs for 10 hours to raise a class set of laptops for his class.  Not only did John contribute money and gather support from friends, but he showed up and rebounded balls for Mr. Robinson:

Our law office donated $800 and John participated in the dodgeball tournament and helped WOKV, the radio station his show is on raise more money than any other team. Learn more.

And donated to WJXT’s team as well:


Clara Barton Mission offers more than meals for the hungry and transitional housing for the homeless. It offers hope and a way out of the misery of a life on the streets. Yes, it provides food and housing, but it also offers vocational programs to put people to work.

We donated turkeys and spent some time at the Mission for Thanksgiving.


Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is a nonprofit donor-supported organization dedicated to attacking cystic fibrosis from every angle. Our focus is to support the development of new drugs to fight the disease, improve the quality of life for those with CF, and ultimately to find a cure.

John raised over $3000 in total and donated almost $1000 himself. He also donated his “body” to the cause and was a model in CF’s Fashion by Moonlight event.

Our office took a tour of the K9′s for Warriors facility in Ponte Vedra.

K9′s for Warriors rescue sheltered dogs and pairs them with wounded veterans suffering from PTSD. This non-profit helps both the dogs find loving homes, and the veterans get a friend who is trained to help.

It’s a great cause. We presented them with a $1000 donation.

In the photo, John hands a check to the founder of K9′s for Warriors out of appreciation for what they do for our community. It is a great concept, we were really glad to help.


Helping Injured DogWe could not resist the opportunity to help this sweet, full of life pup. “Bo” now a celebrity dog here in Jacksonville, Florida was severely injured at the hands of a person with several knife stabbings and yet Bo still loves people. Bo is a true survivor! We were happy to help with Bo’s road to recovery.
