of All Denominations for 30 Years

Meet Rev. John P. Joseph, Esq. CCA

Legal Representation for Churches Across Florida

Assistance from an experienced attorney uniquely qualified
to serve your needs

For over 30 years, churches across the state of Florida have relied on church attorney, ordained minister, and certified church administrator Rev. John P. Joseph, Esq., CCA, to guide them through every aspect of a church’s legal existence, from incorporation to governance, employment, property and finances, and even dissolution, merger or consolidation. With his unique background and combination of disciplines, John is perfectly situated to understand how churches operate and function both as a ministerial body and as a legal entity incorporated under the laws of the state of Florida.

With the help of Church Legal Center, you can rest assured that your church is properly organized and operating in compliance with all applicable state and federal laws, with special attention paid to your unique status and legal needs as a religious organization.

The law practice at Church Legal Center focuses on providing advice and representation to churches, ministries and charities of all denominations in the Tampa Bay Area and throughout the state of Florida.
