Michael Phillips and his assistant Laura assisted me in a complicated dui/dwi case. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case. Michael is very professional, courteous, genuine, and well respected by his peers.I would hire Michael again in a minute!
My husband and I found ourselves in a very difficult situation which required hiring an attorney. My husband is a physician in our town and asked his colleagues if they knew of a reputable attorney. We kept hearing one name from many of our friends and this was Michael Phillips. We contacted his office and he met with us to discuss our problems. Mr. Phillips listened to our concerns and took immediate action. Although being involved in a law suit is not pleasant , we felt as though we were in excellent hands. After many months of a very complex lawsuit we received closure with dignity. We credit Michael Phillips for this as he always took the high road and never compromised his integrity.
I used Michael for a DUI case. When I first called he made it sound like everything was going to be alright and seemed like a stand up genuine guy who cared. After I made my first payment he kept me informed by having me sign the usual court papers. But as I asked him for further advice he would give me unsure answers and made me basically do most of the research about what I needed to do myself. Later on he would call me and ask me why I have not done something that he never told me about! When I asked him about it he said I should have known anyway......then as I started to make progress on classes he basically told me that his job was done and all he needed to do was help with the plea signing. He didn't try to argue my case or help me with advice at all. He's one of those lawyers that once he gets your money he will go to court for you and plead guilty just to get the case over with and move on. It's quick money for him. Basically he seems caring to get your money then all that goes out the window. He always sounds eager to hang up the phone when your talking with him like he is not interested. I asked him if he knew the judge well , he said yes then when all is said and done he says i better hurry with my requirements because the judge is a cranky guy...?Michael is one of those lawyers you read about or hear about that just wants your money. And he is not cheap either!!! I'm sorry for ranting but this guy made me feel very angry and feel like I wasted thousands!! My advise, find someone who cares!!!
I'm a VERY satisfied customer of the Phillips Law office. My small business requires legal advise in today's business environment. Law in modern society has expanded importance and influence in all transactions. Phillips Law office has allowed my business to focus on operations and understand the legal principles of law without feeling over whelmed by the vast body of legal knowledge. The Phillips Law office has the skills and legal mind set that helps you understand legal language that is supported by actual situations.
While a knowledgeable lawyer, Michael Phillips has no empathy or concern for his clients. His bedside manner is brusque, condescending and impatient. He does nothing to guide you through the process and never provides a straight answer. He does not coach you on how you should prepare your information or case and is extremely sloppy with the details - very unprofessional. Contracts include typos along with missing and incorrect information. Find someone else who cares about you and the outcome of your case.
I had a complex case involving a DUI. He was thorough in his discovery process, kept the case from concluding so the Judge would have all the necessary facts & circumstances, displayed his knowledge of the law in this specialty, and was always professional & sympathetic.
When I recently had some questions about my sister's estate, Michael Phillips and his staff were helpful and supportive. The sound and knowledgeable advice I received eased my mind and gave me the confidence I needed to know I was doing the right thing for all concerned parties.
Mr. Phillips was there for me when I needed him the most for the wrongful death of my daughter. He kept in constant contact with me and his staff was always available when I called and had questions. His fees were very reasonable. He got right to the point and handled this case with compassion and perseverance. It was a tough case. You don't find many lawyers who will keep in constant contact. I will definitely be using Mr. Phillips in the future and will definitely recommend him to all my friends.
Michael was able to help me with some serious legal matters. Hi staff was so kind, knowledgeable and comforting and Michael definitely knows his stuff. I would recommend Michael to all of my friends.
I had the great opportunity for Mr. Phillips to represent me about two years ago and he and his staff were outstanding. I will also be dealing with Mr. Mike Phillips down the road. Very compasionate, very understanding professional.
Thank you. Stephanie Banas
