    • I recommend Robin Phillips.
    • I hired Robin 1-6 months ago.
    • Robin handled my Employment / Labor matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    I reached out to Ms. Phillips due to a perceived wrongful employment termination based on multiple facets. Ms. Phillips was recommended to me and others throughout the community who are all professionals, educated and seasoned executives.
    Ms. Phillips definitely has unique qualities that separate her from other legal experts. First, Ms. Phillips is honestly empathetic with any situation. She listens and personalizes her client’s hardship and openly reflects her understanding of how difficult and possibly painful the circumstances may be. That is quite important to me, as I think when one enters litigation, that it’s pretty easy and often possible for folks to judge and assume without having all the information and facts. Ms. Phillips offers her support 100% and from the beginning of engagement.
    Ms. Phillips also has an uncanny ability to listen to many details and capture the essence in a quick and clear interpretation-one that presents a “bottom-line” message to opponents. While opposing members may continue to provide pages and pages of irrelevant and illogical syllogism, Ms. Phillips quickly and directly refocuses the audience back to facts and behaviors that are relevant, meaningful and intolerable. I applaud her for this sort of energy and determination.
    And lastly, Ms. Phillips doesn’t tolerate moronic behavior from opposing members. She simply sticks to the point, disassociates nonsense that merely belabors the inevitable, and stands firm. Robin Phillips is a gal who will immediately and consistently choose to either “fish or cut bait.” I like that about her.
    I strongly recommend Ms. Robin Phillips to any persons who may need the very best. She is the best.

    • I recommend Robin Phillips.
    • I hired Robin 1-6 months ago.
    • Robin handled my Employment / Labor matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Ms. Robin Phillips of Lasher et al, Attorneys at Law was referred to me by another lawyer friend of mine. I engaged her to negotiate the severance package a large nation-wide firm had offered me when they laid me off (I had been the CFO for a small company for 14 years, and the large firm bought my firm, and within two months laid me off at the age of 60). About a month before my last day, my new employer informed me I would be laid off in about four weeks, so I engaged Ms. Phillips to represent me since I felt I had been discriminated against because of my age, and wasn't sure if I would even get a severance package. I was offered a severance package which I felt was inadequate given my years of service and loyalty to my purchased company. Ms. Phillips also felt it was totally inadequate, and completely revised their offer into a counterproposal, and also spoke with the new company about their having possibly discriminated against me due to my age. Once she did that, the new company countered with a somewhat better offer, Ms. Phillips likewise countered, and through several iterations, I was finally able to sign just a few days ago a very fair and balanced severance package. Throughout the whole negotiation, Ms. Phillips was very professional, keeping me informed of the status of the negotiations, proposing to me excellent counterproposals to submit to the new company. I very much liked her steady, calm, and professional approach to my situation, and in the end I was able to sign an excellent severance agreement, and avoid having to sue my former employer. Ms. Phillips has proved herself to me to be an outstanding negotiator and very skilled and knowledgeable employment law attorney. I recommend her without hesitation to anyone who needs representation regarding their employment status, feels he or she is a victim of discrimination, and/or is being treated unfairly in cases of termination. When it comes to employment law and representation, Ms. Phillips is the person to engage.

    Robin and her associates are consummate professionals and easy to work with. We've been a client for close to 21 months with our case coming to a close. She has been both tough on our behalf and with us when necessary, consistently completely honest with us about both the positives and negatives of our case. Robin has a quick legal mind and is able to breakdown the facts and the law so that we can easily understand them. She has been a very tough adversary for our opponents. Our case has been quite long and we've spent quite a bit on it but we absolutely believe that Robin is a good and mindful steward of our money. We trust her implicitly and further, we like her very much.

    • I recommend Robin Phillips.
    • I hired Robin more than 3 years ago.
    • Robin handled my Employment / Labor matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    Robin Phillips was referred to me by a family physician several years ago and after meeting with Robin and the firm she is associated with, I knew I could trust her.
    Why?
    How did I know I could?

    Robin earned my trust by her committment in putting my interests first; not compromising her professional need to be liked by me.

    Also, Robin's billing practices always have been honest with no hinden or unexplained costs which certainly reflects the value she has always delivered. 

    Most importantly, I can give Robin free rein and trust that she will operate in a manner that would be most cost-effective to me. 

    Robin helps me make good decisions on complicated matters by explaining clearly and simply the relevant law as well as all the consequences of various courses of action we could take. 

    A great attorney and an attorney you can trust are hard to find, and I have found one in Robin Phillips and I have referred her to several colleagues.
    Robin Phillips is well worth the fees she charges and trust cannot be bought.
