    • I recommend Philip Ray.

    My case is still on going but i have to say Mr.Ray is on it i have no doubt in my mind that he will get the best results for me. He is a very passionate person about his job he's not the type of lawyer that just wants a pay check he really cares i have had trust issues my whole life but i can honestly say i trust in him and know from the bottom of my heart that he will get the job done. Not only is he the best but his assistants are awesome as well they make you feel at home when visiting the office when you call you can always speak with someone its not a hold and wait game. Mr.Ray takes it to the heart when you have kids he understands that people makes mistakes he is a honest and straight foward person i recommend him to anyone that is having legal problems reguardless of my outcome i be satisfied with knowing that Mr.Ray represented me and he fought to get the best results for that i am thankful!!!

    • I recommend Philip Ray.

    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.

      Lawyer Comment:

      Sir,

      You were informed a range of fees based on the nature of your charges before you came to my office. In your circumstance, the allegations against you are some of the most serious that a person can face in Texas. The more serious the case, the more time intensive the case will be and th emote expertise is required to take the case.

      Yes, my fees are substantial which is commiserate with the charges you are facing. When you compare my rates, you will see that they are very competitive for the Dallas /Ft. Worth area considering my training and experience.

      We do charge for a consultation. While the fee is low, it is enough to encourage potential clients to come only when they are serious about needing immediate legal assistance. Which you do need.

      It is remarkably disappointing that you would drastically understate how long you were in my office. It is also dishonest for you to email me once on December 2nd then post this allegation that I don't respond early in the morning on December 3rd.

      I have no record of you calling my office this past week.

      I wish you the best of luck. You do need to choose to hire an attorney as soon as possible as you are facing serious charges and need the help of a serious attorney.

    • I recommend Philip Ray.
    • I hired Philip 6-12 months ago.
    • Philip handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    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 recommend Philip Ray.
    • I hired Philip 1-3 years ago.
    • Philip handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    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.

      Thank you, Melvin.

      Be proud of your son. He created a terrible situation for himself, but his character came through in the end.

    • I recommend Philip Ray.
    • I hired Philip more than 3 years ago.
    • Philip handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    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.
