By: Alpizar Law

He served on the Brevard County Bar Association as a Board Director, as well as the capacity of each executive position and eventually became President. John has served on the 18th Judicial Circuit Grievance Committee, the 18th Judicial Circuit Judicial Nominating Commission and was appointed by Governor Charlie Crist to serve on the 5th District Court of Appeal Judicial Nominating Commission.
He has served as President of the Central Florida Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocacy (ABOTA), and currently serves on the Board of Governors of the Florida Bar representing the 18th Judicial Circuit covering Brevard and Seminole Counties. John is also the founder of the O. John Alpizar Endowment which provides funding for the Brevard County Bar Foundation. This funding of the foundation helps provide assistance to local charities and organizations. John's service to the community is wide spread. Each year, Alpizar Law sponsors a Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway to help hundreds of local families enjoy their Thanksgiving Holiday.
In keeping with the tradition of giving, the attorneys and staff of Alpizar Law have followed in the founding traditions of the firm by being involved in both ongoing community outreach, as well as commitment to the profession.
