    Rachel helped me tremendously as an investigator on a criminal case. She combines her experience as a defense attorney with her investigation skills to provide a truly unique service.

  • Russell S Barnett III

    Without reservation I would recommend Ms. Philips to an individual seeking legal counsel, or to an attorney seeking an investigator. As an attorney handling primarily homicide cases, I must have an investigator who can “get the job done.” Ms. Philips is just that investigator. Timeliness and thoroughness are the hallmarks of her work product. Her experience as a top-flight criminal defense lawyer makes her invaluable as an investigator, but more importantly, her personality make it possible for her to connect with, and develop rapport with almost anyone. When I get a new case, my first call is to Rachel Philips.
