I have known Phil Mccurdy for almost 20 years. He has represented me many times in many different areas. I have and will continue to trust him with my all my legal entanglements. A good guy, and friend that can explain things to you so you can understand them.
Mr.Mccurdy was referred to me by a close family member about four years ago while I was going through the struggle of setting up a Child Support Settlement. As a first time mother I had many questions and concerns about the guidelines and regulations of what a "Child Support Agreement" really meant. Mr.Mccurdy went above and beyond to answer every question I had, no matter how small or silly it may have sounded. By the time we sat down in mediation I was completely at ease, knowing Phil had everything under control. I got absolutely everything I wanted down on paper, and Phil even suggested many things I wouldn't have even considered. Unfortunately, I have had to re-enter the court room due to my son's father not following the "Child Support Agreement" and I wouldn't dare have anyone on my team other than Phil Mccurdy. He is incredibly knowledgeable, trust worthy, and incredibly passionate about what he does. He is always honest with me and tells me exactly how it is, straight to the point. Choosing Phil as my lawyer is one of the best choices I have ever made, and he will always be my only choice.
Earlier this year, Mr. McCurdy helped me with a huge victory when I was awarded full legal custody of my children. As a man with very limited financial resources, this was an uphill battle that he seemingly won with ease. My earlier review is below, you may find it to read more about that one. Now, 7 months later he has given another great victory, this time in an award for attorney's fees. He was able to get a huge judgement ordered against my ex-wife for most of my outstanding legal debts. He is an outstanding man, and a great lawyer. Thank you so much Phil! I'll recommend you to everyone I know! Joshua
Attorney Phil Mccurdy has represented me on two major cases. Both times I have had the best results.
I always experience professionalism, know-how and strong sense that I have an effective advocate in my corner.
I have already recommended Phil to others, and I'm sure to do it again.
Phil is very knowledgeable, tactful and to the point. It's been great to work with him. He has gracefully handled a few complex and odd situations that have surrounded my case. Some of which needed quick action and experience based decisions. That's exactly what he has brought to the table for my divorce. I'm totally satisfied with the end result.
Mr McCurdy came into my case over 3 years into the divorce. My previous lawyer had not done anything to push it forward, and it was exhausting. My ex-wife had an endless budget, was on her 9th lawyer, and had already pushed the case onto a third judge in Fulton county - you can imagine the disaster that Mr. McCurdy walked into. That being said, Phil was excellent at not only getting the case to trial, but in obtaining the proper outcome. Through his excellent preparation, he was able to not only get himself up to speed, but to force the opposing counsel into getting my ex to take a settlement offer. In the end, after less than 2 months on the case, he was able to settle the custody portion of a divorce case that was over 3 years old. I was granted full physical and legal custody of both of my small children - A HUGE VICTORY for a MAN in Georgia, especially given that I have very limited income as I've been going back to school for the last 4 years. I couldn't have asked for better representation on this case - Thank you so much! And btw, after reading one of the recent reviews, I can definitely comment that Mr. McCurdy's rate and retainer are not only fair, but less than my previous attorney asked for - and he has considerably more experience.
I used Phil several years ago in a divorce case and was mostly happy with the quality of work and over all outcome. I hired Phil again in early 2013 and boy have things changed. He has become very unresponsive and the quality of work has dropped significantly to the point I really regret hiring him and could not be more disappointed. He has no regard for the importance of my case to me and has treated me like I'm a bother and not a valued client.
His retainer fee is three times the average rate for the area he practices in. On several occasions he was supposed to contact the opposing attorney in the case and did not. Entirely incorrect information on the legal division of an inheritance that is part of the case. Out right lied to opposing attorney. He knew the absolute facts and lied 100% to opposing attorney. When an attorney lies to a client and turns around and fabricates lies to tell opposing counsel it is reprehensible .
Phil is a stand-up guy. I was referred to him by another attorney, and he hasn't let me down since . Phil listens to all your concerns, and he will work extremely hard to get you the best results.
I, along with my parents, would recommend Phil McCurdy all day long and already have. He is prompt, very attuned to his client's needs, patient and incredibly informative. My entire experience was as pleasant as could be, given the circumstances, as I knew Phil was there to support me however I needed.
