Jacksonville Personal Injury Attorney

Your Story Matters.

Our firm of believes that everyone deserves justice and the finest legal representation at a fair price and to be treated with respect and personal attention and 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 just a “case.” You are a person. With a problem. And need help.

Our mission is to help people one-by-one and often develop friendships with our 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.

Experience Matters.

Our office has the legal experience and resources to properly use the justice system to help clients. Whether handling the ordinary (or the extraordinary) automobile wreck, fall or shooting case, to jury trials covered by Good Morning America, from family law to criminal defense, from appealing our client’s fight to the highest courts in the land, to sitting beside a client as she testifies before the U.S. Senate, our firm has the resources and experience to get the job done- however small, however big.

We take pride in our state-of-the-art courtroom technology, which was recently featured in Void Magazine. Each 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 many verdicts and settlements of over $1 million dollars on multiple occasions- we also want to make our client’s bad days better.
