Committed to Justice.™

Our team is available 24/7. Free, same day consultations available to all.

Justice is spelled only one way, but it is defined differently by each client. Some are looking to put the pieces back together; some want an arrest. Our mission is to get clients as many definitions of justice as possible. We are COMMITTED TO JUSTICE.

Automobile Accidents

A team of lawyers, investigators and medical professionals begin working on your case from the instant you call after a car wreck or automobile accident. John worked for insurance companies and large businesses before starting his own firm 8 years ago.

Falls or Other Accidents

It’s often called premises liability. It’s getting injured at another’s location or at the hands of another. We are here to help, whether you’ve fallen, been bitten by a dog os sustain an injury another way.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful death cases are some of the most difficult. Not only did a traumatic event happen, but the family is dealing with loss, funeral planning and debt. Meanwhile, evidence may be vanishing. We work these cases with passion and compassion. We will help you set up an estate and get the justice your family deserves.

Tractor-Trailer Wrecks

Commercial vehicle and large trucking cases are a specialty. Investigation and ecperts are key.


John represented the family of Jordan Davis and has worked on some of the highest profile cases in the world.

Chronic Pain Caused by Accident

We are one of the few law firms who have had trial success with chronic pain cases, like RSD / CRPS.

Medical Malpractice

Florida law is very difficult in the fields of medical malpractice. We take these cases and work to get you a great recovery.

Trusted By Media, Trusted By You

There are reasons our law firm is known as one of the most prominent in the country. We are relied upon by media on a regular basis. Whether commenting as a legal expert on cases to selectively presenting media with our own locally and nationally discussed cases, few lawyers have commented on a national stage as much as John Phillips and our team.

Media must be used with caution. Too often, lawyers use press conferences for their own benefit or take on too many high profile cases. We are very particular and use media when it is right for you and will advise you every step of the way.


Verdicts & Settlements

This is just a sample of our recent verdicts and settlements.

Do not hire a lawyer who has never been to trial. We try our own cases. Less experienced lawyers will bring another lawyer “if” it goes to trial. We do not recommend this strategy. You choose your lawyers and will actually pay less in the long run to choose wisely now. We are a smart choice.


Jury Verdict: Duval County (2019). Wrongful Death by Shooting in Motor Vehicle. Punitive Damages Awarded.


Jury Verdict: Alachua County (2012). Vehicle Negligence by Coca-Cola. Caused Laser Spine Surgery and Pain.


Jury Verdict: Volusia County (2014). Vehicle Negligence by Volusia County Beach Patrol Caused Injuries.
