When I first spoke with him, he give me the impression that he really knew his stuff and was willing to fight hard for me. He's great at marketing himself, I'll give him that. I saw 5 star glowing reviews on this site and thought he would be a good fit. Instead, in the following weeks after retaining him, I had to constantly nag him and his secretary to receive updates and responses to my emails, and his advice always defaulted to what would be the least painful course of action for him. I got the impression he didn't care about me or my case at all, and really just saw an easy opportunity to take my money with minimal work. I learned a valuable lesson after my experience with him, always aggressively vet your lawyer before retaining them.
I worked with Phil during my Drivers License Restoration hearing. Having previously worked with another attorney for my cases, I was so discouraged because it turned out to be a nightmare. I had to constantly nag the other attorney to answer things and I felt I did most the work. Phil was extremely professional, he answered all the questions I had, and was very knowledgeable. I know I am probably the most organized and meticulous person on this earth, which can seem overwhelming and annoying to someone in a position like Phil - but he did not waiver. He won my case straight up and I couldn't be happier!
Have you ever heard the saying, "you get what you pay for?" We certainly did get just that. Attorney Philip when he sat down with us for our free consultation, we knew right then after hearing him talk and how knowledgeable he was regarding our case, that we wanted him to represent our son. Our son was facing several felonies and misdemeanors that carried jail time. When Attorney Philip took on our case he was very professional and did his homework very well. The relationship that he has with other law enforcement officials and Judges was incredible. Attorney Philip work everything out as to where our son was only charged with a misdemeanor and received 6 months probation and once he completes his probation successfully it will all be erased from his record. If you are in need of an attorney I strongly recommend Attorney Philip. Simon & Geherin firm exceeded our expectations and we are very grateful. Thank you Attorney Philip for taking care of our son.
I had a owil back in 2004 and lost my license for 10 years. I recently found Philip thru a google search at Simon and geherin law office. I stated my case and paid a little more in fees than I expected but,after my results I have to say it was worth every penny. He is very thorough with each case that he represents. I would recommend him to anyone for a drunk driving or a license restoration case such as mine. Thank you Phil!!!!! I wish you good will and a prosperous life!!!!!!!
On November 1 2012 I was arrested and charged with Operating W/ the Presence of Drugs, a year and a half later I was arraigned. Mr. Jacques represented me throughout this matter and his performance far exceeded my expectations. He did absolutely EVERYTHING he could to get me the most favorable outcome. My case ended up going to trial and Mr. Jacques implemented a brilliant strategy and exploited the flaws of the prosecutors case and totally owned the prosecutor during the trial. He ended up getting my charge reduced to reckless driving which we viewed as a victory considering the circumstances of my case. I highly recommend this attorney, throughout my proceedings, he kept me informed on a weekly basis. It's never pleasant having to go through something like this, but I felt much more comfortable with this attorney representing me. It was nice to have a HIGHLY competent, intelligent, and compassionate person in my corner. Prior to every court date, he would inform me of what I could expect, how we were going to respond, and what all of it meant etc. I'm very happy with the outcome of my case and I HIGHLY recommend this attorney.
Mr. Jacques defended me in a drunk driving case. He worked successfully to reduce my charge from DWI to reckless driving, and remained attentive to my needs and concerns even though I only had one chance to consult with him in person and had to communicate with him from abroad (seven hours ahead) most of the time. I would heartily recommend his services to anyone facing a similar charge.
Mr Jacques is very knowledgeable and very helpful. He is always very prompt in answering my questions. With his extensive experience, he gave me the most valuable supports.
Never would I have imagined myself requiring legal console for a matter of this magnitude. I feared the processes of acquiring a lawyer almost as much as the consequences of my actions. Sitting down for my free consolation, Phil walked me through numerous scenarios and possible outcomes for my case. Phil set my mind at ease with his genuine, articulate and well spoken manner, along with his honest calm demeanor. I left the consultation feeling very comfortable with my decision to retain him as my lawyer.
Throughout this long arduous process, Phil was constantly keeping me up to date with the status of my case. When I would email or call with a question, Phil would respond with a very prompt and detailed explanation. I was always confident that Phil was working diligently on my case.
The same can be said for the law firm that Phil is with. The firm operates like a team, and everyone from the secretary to the other lawyers, is very courteous and knowledgeable. In speaking with the other lawyers, it was obvious that they all are working in my behalf striving to achieve the best results possible.
And achieve these results they did. Phil was able to get my charges reduced to a simple traffic violation. This was a very extraordinary result, and one that I am very thankful for.
I've worked very hard to get where I am in life. I feel very fortunate to have a supportive family, great friends, a good job, and to just be happy. This brief chapter in my life was very stressful for me. Having gained everything in my life by being a hands on individual, it was really hard to hand over the keys and trust someone else with my future.
I will never be able to express in words my gratitude to Phil for all his diligent work to preserve my state of happiness.
When you need to trust someone else with your future, Philip Jacques is the person for you.
I would like to thank Mr. Jacques and his firm for the services they provided to me in my case. From my experience, I give him and the firm my highest recommendations without any reservations. On the legal front, you know you are in safe hands because of his knowledge of law, expertise in working with the judicial system, honesty, setting realistic expectations and showing us the right thing to do and then works hard to achieve towards the best possible case scenario. On the personal front I found him to be very professional, prompt in answering my questions, always got my calls returned the same day. In my case through his diligence and expertise as well as sound approach the case got dismissed. I feel if you want to get the best possible outcome and give your best shot, then this is the firm to work with and I can endorse attorney Jacques from my experience that you won't be disappointed and he will go all out for you. Another added advantage with the firm is the attorney's work as a team and this team is one of high ethics and moral character apart form being the best in what they do. Attorney Jacques, I thank you once again for your help with my case and if someone is in need for legal representation and they feel they were wronged and want justice served - hiring attorney Jacques will be the first right step in this direction.
Philip Jacques was very professional leading me through a process that isn't a lot of fun.
