Knox Law Center Sponsors 7th Consecutive Spiritus Project For Adults Suffering With Cystic Fibrosis

Knox Law Center is proud to sponsor the Spiritus Project for the 7th consecutive year since this amazing project began! We enjoyed this year’s great golf tournament and feel very fortunate to be a part of such an amazing cause! Below is an overview of the Spiritus Project and some photos from this year’s Spiritus Masters golf tournament.

Overview Of The Spiritus Project

​The purpose of the Spiritus Project is to provide various forms of direct, need-based financial assistance to adult cystic fibrosis patients in an effort to reduce stress and provide an improved quality of life. The focus of the Spiritus Project is to assist North Carolina-based cystic fibrosis patients whose primary care is delivered via the UNC Adult Cystic Fibrosis Center.

To date, we have now touched the lives of adult cystic fibrosis patients over 2,000 times since our founding in 2015. Some big, some small, but all mattered!

Jessica Link noticed that small measures could have large impacts on the quality of life for fellow patients increasingly during her cystic fibrosis-related hospitalizations in her later years. Her compassion to create a better life for other adult cystic fibrosis patients led her to develop the concept for this project. She landed on “spiritus” as it symbolized both the painful reality of breathing with the unyielding optimism with which she faced life. ​Jessica believed in this endeavor so much that she acquired the personalized license plate “SPIRITUS” for her car. ​​


​​In keeping with the theme of breath and spirit, Jessica often cited a quote attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson:

To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

It is with this background that we embraced Jessica’s plan to improve the quality of life for her fellow adult cystic fibrosis patients. Jessica left this earth in early 2015, but her spirit and desire lives on with the Spiritus Project.

Breathe easy, Jessica!

Exceptional Legal Representation & True Professional, Genuine Individual

I first met Allen after he was recommended to me by a friend, and I couldn't be happier with the service that he provided. He demonstrated a unique attention to detail in my case, as well as expressed a genuine interest in me as a person. Through a great deal of hard work, Allen was able to appeal my case and get all of my charges dismissed. I couldn't be more grateful for him and his assistant, Sherry, for their legal and personal support during such a difficult time. Hiring Allen was the greatest decision I've ever made, and I would recommend Allen to anyone seeking exceptional legal representation.

The most amazing lawyer, a true gem & winner

Allen is the best lawyer I've ever met! His character is genuine, and there is a warmth about him that makes you feel so comfortable. If you ever get into a situation with DWI, and feel truly remorseful for what happened, HIRE him for the BEST chance possible. I previously spent 6000$ on an attorney who just didn't feel like they really gave me the personal care that I needed. They were only in it for the money. After hearing raving reviews about Allen, I fired my lawyer and took a leap of faith with Allen. Even though I had to pay two separate times and could not get a refund for the previous lawyer, IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!! He won my case with dignity, respect, and care and I am forever thankful to him for this.
