As our Jacksonville personal injury, insurance and nursing home abuse lawyers have practiced law for decades, we are able to answer a host of questions about car accidents, personal injury protection, insurance coverages and nursing home claims. If you have any questions about an injury, insurance or nursing home claim, please call for a free consultation.

Law firms in Jacksonville frequently advertise that they provide free consultations; however, they may not allow you to speak directly with an attorney. Furthermore, you may not get your questions answered once the law firm realizes your question does not involve a case they want to handle.

Our attorneys routinely field calls from people that have disputes that we are not interested in handling. The most common example is when someone calls who has suffered damage to their car from an accident in which no one was injured. If you find yourself in such a situation, please do not hesitate to call.

We also get a lot of calls from family members of residents in nursing homes where the family member is concerned about the lack of attention their loved one is receiving even though their loved one has not (yet) suffered any personal injury. We are happy to take these calls as severe injury or death from nursing home neglect can often be prevented by: transferring the resident to another, higher rated, nursing home; calling for a care plan meeting with the nursing home’s director of nursing, the nurse unit manager and the attending physician; or by transferring the resident to a hospital.

Client Reviews
I have known Mr. Lawrence for several years and in my opinion he is the most professional and trustworthy lawyer I have ever known. I have had dealings with other lawyers but they were not as good as Mr. Lawrence. I would highly recommend him. Carla
I was referred to Greg by a coworker after I received a bad injury from an auto accident and was so pleased with Greg, and staff. They literally took care of everything for me while I was healing and kept me updated every step of the way. Calls and emails were always accepted and returned promptly and they were extremely patient and helpful with any questions and concerns that I had. Should I ever need legal assistance again I will definitely be calling him and referring him to family and friends. Amie M.
I had a difficult disability case, and was referred to Greg by a judge. As an experienced lawyer myself, I was apprehensive about using someone I didn't know. As it turned out, however, I could not have been more pleased. Greg mastered the case in no time, and was nothing short of brilliant in getting me a substantial settlement. He's a lawyer's lawyer, and I recommend him highly and without reservation. Steve
I would like to take a moment to say thanks to Greg, and his staff for doing an excellent job with my deceased mothers nursing home case. After hiring two other law firms my brothers and I decided to hire Greg. This was the best decision that we made regarding this case. Greg took the time to get to know who our deceased mother was, and the important facts involving our claim. As a result Greg was successful in resolving our claim to our satisfaction. Greg is the best attorney that I have ever met! I would highly recommend hiring Greg for any nursing home, or any other claims. Falsario Arnold
Of all the things that pleased me about Greg was that he was always available to me. If I called or emailed, I spoke to him and wasn't pushed off to one of his paralegals or assistants (although they were very helpful as well). I felt like I had a lawyer - not a factory. Scott
