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.
I am a small business owner and Mr.McCurdy has represented my company and myself on several occasions. He has also always been available to dispense advice, keeping me and my business informed on all the laws, rules and regulations that apply.
He has also represented me in court. This is where he really excels, in a court of law. Very impressive.
If you have to go to court, you will want this man on your side, lest he be on the other side and against you. The man is a winner. There was one time when I asked for his help on a case and he informed me that I would be better served using another attorney. He then contacted another attorney and got the ball rolling for me. This shows integrity. Great Lawyer !
I have utilized the services of Phil Mccurdy, for several years, in my business dealings. Being a small business owner, you need a good lawyer. I found that in Phil, he is very knowledgeable , in contract law, lien laws and corporate law. I am certain he is just effcetive in other area he may pratice.
A few years ago I contacted Phil, on a family matter, mainly a divorce. After my consultaion, I allowed Phil to handle this matter for me. It was an 18 month battle and I am very please with the out come.
The myth that there is no justice in Georgia for a man getting a divorce, is just that, a myth. I would have to say you had the wrong LAWYER. Divorce is not a pleasant matter, it is a matter that has to be handle. Not alloiwing Phil to handle you divorce, may me a great mistake
