Baseball Diamonds to Courtrooms:
Chris Cobb's Journey to Esquire
It's always a pleasure when Max Marbut stops by the office to interview one of us about legal trends, professional achievements, or firm involvement.

The article also gave Chris the chance to reflect back on the days he spent at the baseball diamond and how chasing his lifelong dream lead him to Esquire being our Co-Captain.

Personal Jurisdiction in Florida

When an out-of-state defendant gets slapped with a summons from a Florida court with an order to appear and defend a lawsuit, the defendant may have questions (among other things, to say the least).

Sometimes It's Just Intuition
During the holiday season we know it's important to take a step back to focus on those around us - it's no different when you have a tight knit work family. This year we came together (with our significant other in tow) for our annual year end party at Intuition Brewery. The food was great, beer was cold, and football games rolling. We spent hours telling stories about first date impressions, the college glory days, and learning little known facts.

Giving Children Fighting Cancer
the Opportunity to be Kids
Every year we join in on the holiday tradition and host a toy drive to benefit local children. This year we collected toys for WithLove Charity , a Jacksonville-based non-profit whose mission is to give children the opportunity to be kids. WithLove's 4th Annual Christmas Party collected more than 450 new toys for patients from Nemours Children's Specialty Care's Hematology/Oncology and their families.

You Can Nickel & Dime Us for a Good Cause
Northeast Florida Builders Association (NEFBA) Young Professionals hosted a "Coins for Construction" fundraiser for Builders Care , a non- profit construction contractor whose mission is to provide affordable to no cost construction services to the elderly, disabled, other nonprofits in Northeast Florida. Donating was a weight lifted off the shoulders for many... literally... purses were much lighter after being emptied out.

No Construction Defects Here!
It's no secret competition is embedded into J&C culture. This year we decided to test our design skills with the first annual gingerbread house competition. Teams of three competed head-to-head to decorate their house in only 25 minutes. We put it to a vote on social media and it was a tight race. In the end, it was team #3 (Jenn Farber, Adam Edgecombe and his son Holden, and Hans Wahl) that took first place. Click here to see a 360-view of each house.

The Jimerson's Put a Ring On It
If you were grocery shopping at Publix in Riverside on December 12th, you probably saw some familiar faces. Charlie Jimerson and his children, Lila and Ford, showed off their bell ringing skills for the Salvation Army. The kiddos had a great time greeting customers and spreading some holiday cheer. Dad was beaming with pride and confident they raised the most money to help those in need throughout Jacksonville.
