Jackel & Phillips, PC is a law firm which provides personal, experienced and professional representation in cases of serious injury, wrongful death, harmful consumer products and medical malpractice cases involving hospital, nursing, or physician negligence. PartnerDana Jackelis the recipient of the prestigious “Best in Cobb” Award for his proven track record for outstanding legal skills and ability. Partner Christopher Phillips is a veteran of the United States Navy, Judge Advocate Corps (JAGC) who has tried numerous criminal and civil jury cases for over 17 years. Unlike many law firms which rely on “volume” or “quick” settlements that heavily discount the value of a case, at Jackel & Phillips we take special pride in the fact that your case will be given the individual attention it deserves and skillfully prosecuted by well-experienced attorneys and a staff nurse consultant (along with other retained medical experts) who work as a “team” in order to obtain the best result, no matter how long it takes or whether the case needs to be tried in front of a jury. Additionally, at Jackel & Phillips we also pride ourselves on personal service and you will always be able to speak with either partner when you call about your case (and we promptly return our calls if we are out of the office). With over 50 years of experience between the two partners, Jackel & Phillips has represented numerous victims of automobile collisions, injurious products, slip and falls, personal injuries, and medical malpractice. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a motor vehicle collision, by medical malpractice, or by the negligent or intentional acts of another, Jackel & Phillips will doggedly investigate and pursue your case, which is backed by a long-established history and proven track record of success.

I strongly endorse this lawyer's work. Chris and I served in the US Navy JAG Corps together and tried many cases together. He is an outstanding lawyer. Extremely hard working, dedicated and talented. He knows the law thoroughly and has a tremendous ability to analyze the issues and solve problems creatively and effectively. Chris is one of the most zealous advocates I have ever known. I have referred many cases to him since we've been out of the Navy and will continue to do so. I highly recommend Chris and his firm.
