Jacksonville, FL, June 07, 2011 –(– Law Office will specialize in civil, criminal and military law with “personal attention.”

“After leaving my own firm for one of the nation’s largest, it became readily apparent that Jerry Maguire was right- “the key to (any) business is personal relationships,” says John M. Phillips, Esq. “When you outgrow your ability to focus on one client at a time, personal relationships sacrifice and decisions are made with unnecessary haste.” John’s website focuses on how things have changed, “When my great grandfather, Arthur G. Busby, founded his law practice, and ultimately became Judge, things were different. Personal relationships mattered. Compassion mattered. 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 others.” John wants that in this age (although he admits he isn’t abandoning his secretary or iPhone) and knows the expertise and quality you expect from large law firms can be available in a much more personalized environment.” This was Phillips’ inspiration to open his office, The Law Offices of John M. Phillips. He previously opened a sports agency in 2009, The Breakthrough Sports Agency, which has helped change the environment of athlete representation. He plans locations in Jacksonville, Florida; Savannah, Georgia; and Tuscaloosa, Alabama, as John is licensed in all three states.

After over 10 years of experience at the highest levels of the legal profession, including the highest peer acclaim the profession offers- AV / Preeminent Rating by Martindale, 10/10 rating by AVVO, and featured as a Florida “SuperLawyer” for the past 2 years, amongst others- John will provide the personalized attention and hands-on approach that sometimes only smaller firms can give while offering a range of experience rarely found in a solo practitioner.

John speaks and writes all across the country, for free, and major networks consult him on sports law issues. He plans to expand this and speak and provide materials to media sources on any civil, criminal or military law issues. He has maintained a very popular blog on the Breakthrough Sports Agency’s site and is going the same for his new law office’s site, He will also do interviews and provide “on” or “off” the record discussion (as needed) to serve the media and its public. He offers free consultations to all potential clients and media.

“I still serve the same types of clients I have for the past 10 years,” Phillips says, “But now I have the flexibility to know them and their problems better.” The firm’s website can be found at
