  • Joseph Charles Blanner

    It is my pleasure to endorse Phil as an attorney with the highest level of legal ability and professionalism. Phil and I have worked on numerous matters together, as opposing counsel and on the same side. He has always exhibited a tremendous knowledge of the law, especially relating to construction matters. He is also a person of honesty and integrity. I have referred clients to him in conflict situations and will continue to do so in the future.
