Speech/Presentation: U.S. Senate Testimony (2013)

The words of a client are often far more important than the words of the lawyer or spokesman. John Phillips had the honor of attending a speech given by client Lucia McBath before the US Senate. The topic was Stand Your Ground and the loss of her son, Jordan Davis.

“I face the very real possibility that my son’s killer will walk free because of this law, hiding behind a statute that lets people claim a threat when there was none,” McBath said, fighting back tears. Lucy’s entire speech is available here.

John also was invited to and presented written testimony to Congress. You can download and read what he presented here- Jordan Davis family lawyer Congressional Testimony.
