Penny R. Phillips

About me

We established Phillips Law Firm with a focus on providing a broad range of legal services to individuals and businesses.  Penny's background provides some unique advantages to business clients.  Having served as an in-house attorney and as a military officer, her understanding of strategic business decisions has a depth that only such experience can bring.  If you or your spouse have served in the military and you are getting divorced or handling probate, special military law provisions may apply to your situation and you would benefit from having a lawyer who knows and understands these rules.  As a former Air Force JAG, Penny knows the rules that could affect your situation.

  • James H Creedon

    Penny has been an incredible help to me in my practice, and is always available to answer any questions I may have. She has a broad set of skills and is an excellent attorney, but even more importantly is a lawyer with integrity and commitment to service. Her military background gives her the ability to talk to people from all walks of life, and she continues her service by coordinating a legal clinic for veterans in Collin County. I cannot recommend her enough.
