    • I recommend Philip Trenchak.
    • I hired Philip more than 3 years ago.
    • Philip handled my Litigation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    After three very long years of having to deal with a former employer and end less meetings , I was faced with no choice but to go to trial. Preparing for trial is a nerve racking experience and is not pleasant . When the first day of trial started all my worries went away . I told the facts and Phil did not pull any crazy attorney antics. He was respectful of both parties during testimony. In the end the facts won and Phil's tenacity not to give up. He never once lost his cool unlike the opposing attorney and managed to help me keep my head up . Having to go through something like this is stressful enough. Having the right people on your side makes it less stressful.

    Great Attorney.
    Phil kept me out of Prison and he did it at a reasonable price.
    I was facing a couple years and I ended up going to trial and winning.
    Nice to have him on your side.

    • I do not recommend Philip Trenchak.

    I totally agree with the other review. He did the same thing to me. Never returns calls or emails ,constantly changes office locations without notification. Cancels appts. at the last minute over & over. Tells me things have been done that haven't. Keeps asking for more money. Loses or misplaces important paperwork. I did most of the work myself. He has made me physically sick from the worry & stress he's caused me. I can't believe a word he's says. Totally unreliable & unprofessional.

    Phil is great when you first meet him . Then he takes your money and disappears . He switches offices with no contact information. Save your money and your sanity . Hire a lawyer that returns phone calls and emails . Hire a lawyer that is sober . Hire a lawyer that responds to the opposing party so that you actually don't lose . Hire a lawyer that doesn't hide from his clients . Hire a lawyer that actually does his job . The only reason why I was "stuck " with Phil was the amount of money I already paid and he had no intention of paying back . Had I known that this incompetent , careless ,selfish ,sorry excuse for a person clearly had financial and substance abuse issues I would have gone elsewhere . Instead I can not even receive help from legal aid because of his bizarre behavior and lack of effort . Thanks Phil , your great!!!
