I have a friend who is currently in jail and Philip is his attorney. Philip didn't even show up to his first court date in Novemember. I called and called his office and could never get ahold of him. He finally visited my friend in jail the day before his reset court date. When he went to court he said not to take what the DA offered. His next court date was set for a month and a half from then. Philip said he was going to come talk to him last week and never did. I got ahold of him FINALLY and he said he would talk to him on Monday. I have tried to call Philip several times because my friend really needs to talk to his attorney and I cannot get ahold of him.
I have a felony warrant out of all the attorneys in Dallas he is the only one I found that charges $300 for 5 minutes of his time I told him I had a warrant he verified it tell me his fee was very very high and he could not help me in charge me 300 dollars since then I called him twice to asking one question and I have yet to get a reply from him or his office I wished I would have kept my $300 and seen and other attorney before him and not still be $300 ahead today.
I was involved in a case for a friend and never dreamed how complicated a trial really is. There are so many rules and guidelines and Mr. Ray was on top of all of it!
I had no doubt going into trial that everything had been handled and we got a great outcome.
If you need a criminal attorney, Mr. Ray is the lawyer you want to represent you. His background with the district attorney's office and his experience speaks for itself!
I am a lawyer and am chairman of my law firm's litigation department. I oversee the work of dozens of lawyers. I am familiar with the standard of practice for lawyers, and my ratings of "excellent" across the board are based on more than three decades experience as a litigator.
Mr. Ray represented my son in a serious criminal matter. He provided excellent legal advice, and also emotional support. He always returned telephone calls, and he always kept me up to date. My son was looking at serving prison time, but Mr. Ray was able to negotiate probation. Thanks to Mr. Ray, our son is now home with us and finishing college, as opposed to serving time in prison.
Mr. Ray is an excellent lawyer, and an excellent person. He litigated this case as if it were his own son facing criminal charges. I cannot praise him highly enough. Hire him with confidence that he will do the best job possible.
Philip represented our Son in a federal drug case. I have to say our son did not give Philip a lot to work with. He was looking at up to 45 Years as a repeat offender. Long story short by taking Philips advice and our son electing to do the right thing he received a 27 year sentence which was reduced to 131/2 years. I would simply put it this way, listen to his advice and trust what he says. I can say getting this reduction gives our son a great chance to still have a productive life.
I called several lawyers to discuss handling my case and they all said it would be "almost impossible" for my friend to avoid serving the remaining 24 years of a 40 year sentence after a parole violation of a 3rd DUI. Mr. Ray also concluded that it would be a very difficult case, but he seemed the most knowledgeable and confident that he could get a good outcome for my friend. He charged a fair fee and he worked wonders. He visited my friend often in the jail and kept both of us informed and up to date throughout the entire process. In my opinion, he worked a miracle. My friend got a sentence of only six months. I would recommend Mr. Ray to anyone needing help. He is also very personable and it is easy to contact him at any time.
highly recommend this lawyer. He did a wonderful job protecting my family.
