My own experience has been as a prosecutor for 28 years and as a criminal defense attorney for another three.
Mr. Phillips and I were adversaries in many cases in which I was the prosecutor and he represented the defendant. I found Mr. Phillips to have integrity and to vigorously and competently represent his clients. When one of my family members was arrested for DUI, I chose Mr. Phillips to handle the case, which he did very well.

Mr. Phillips came highly recommended by family friends. He was very knowledgeable about DUI situations.
He saved me a lot of time , and clearly understood my difficult position. I would recommend him to anyone
in need of a legal defense attorney.

You never think its going to happen to you - and then it does, you get arrested for DUI. You think your world is going to end and you don't know who to call. Fortunately, a friend referred me to Mr. Phillips. Because of his knowledge and expertise, I was able to keep my business running and continue to make a living. I was very pleased with the end result and very thankful. I also appreciated the time Mr. Phillips' spent answering my questions, explaining how the process worked and helping prepare for court. I would recommend him to anyone that needs a smart and compassionate attorney.

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!!!

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.
