Community Involvement

The law firm of Philip DeBerard, Injury Attorney, assists people hurt in automobile accidents and other personal injuries in South Florida and the Treasure Coast. We’re proud of our legal efforts on behalf of Florida accident victims. If you ever need help with an accident claim, call to speak with a caring accident attorney or one of our qualified staff, or fill out our online contact form.

We’re equally proud of our community involvement. We believe it’s important to give back to the Florida communities in which we live. That’s why we have contributed time and money to more than 40 charities, nonprofits, foundations and Florida community groups. Among them:
