About The Firm - Tradition Meets Modern

The Firm traces its roots to 1951, when Carl Dawson helped his first client. At the time, Jacksonville was home to approximately a third of the population the city has today. In this small town southern atmosphere, Carl built a reputation for integrity, professionalism and dedication. As Jacksonville grew into a major metropolitan city, with a thriving economy and progressive culture, the Firm kept pace. We’ve helped thousands of individuals and businesses throughout the United States (and beyond) accomplish their goals and solve their problems.

Although we now utilize sophisticated technology, the Firm continues to base its practice on our founding principles. We deliver to every client a responsive, candid and realistic approach to their issues and always adhere to the highest standards of professionalism and integrity. Our lawyers have a reputation for developing creative approaches to conventional problems.
