Our small business counsel service provides the right amount of advice and assistance to meet your needs within your budget.

  2. Car accident
    Pinellas Legal Center maintains a comprehensive personal injury law practice throughout the Tampa Bay area. If you have been injured by the negligence or misconduct of another, you should not have to endure the additional costs which come from medical expenses, lost wages, and having to endure this painful disruption in your life.

  3. Corporate and incorporation

  4. Wills and living wills
    The will is a central instrument for your estate planning. Through a will, you can express your desire for how you want your property distributed, including inheritances of money and specific gifts of money, property or personal possessions to friends, families and charities, including gifts to religious or educational institutions. The will is also the proper place to name an executor/personal representative of your estate, and to appoint a guardian for your children if necessary.

    37 years

  5. Mergers and acquisitions
    We represent churches and other not for profit entities who desire to merge.

  6. Real estate
    We represent Buyers and Sellers of residential property.

  7. Trusts
    A revocable living trust is an excellent tool that should be considered as part of your estate planning. A trust offers some distinct tax advantages and has the added benefit of removing property from the probate estate, making the administration of your estate faster and less costly.

Review of John Paul Joseph
I recently consulted John Paul Joseph about a license agreement that needed modification. From the moment the consultation began until it was finished, John proved himself exceedingly helpful. In addition to answering my question, which was reliant on knowledge of contract law, he provided additional suggestions that I had not considered. The only regret I have is not finding John Paul Joseph earlier, as I firmly believe he could have been a major asset in past business negotiations.

The most professional lawyer I ever had!
My legal insurance plan recommended John to me. After I called his office, he contacted me immediately, listen to my problem and was able to suggest a solution. John really took care of my problem and was able to achieve the best results possible. I was very happy with his professionalism, overall knowledge, response time and results, the perfect lawyer! I will recommend John to everyone who needs excellent legal help.
