On July 19th I was charged with an Attempt to Elude, a Felony charge, and a Reckless Driving, while riding my streetbike home from the bar. I had two drinks in about an hour and a half and waited till I was comfortable to ride home. Shortly after entering the highway, a Sherriff parked on the opposite side of the highway startled me by flashing on his headlights. I panicked because I had been drinking, so I decided the chance of another DUI was not worth getting pulled over for. After a few minutes of riding at very high speeds and passing cars around double lane corners, I realized I had made a very bad decision. The red and blue lights behind me came closer and closer and knew I would be caught eventually, so I decided to pull over. I admitted to running from the officer and admitted I had a couple drinks. I passed the physical sobriety tests with flying colors, and blew 0.038 bac, well under the legal limit. I spent that night in jail with the two previously stated charges hanging over my head. I didn't know what to do. As soon as I was bailed out from jail the next morning, I began searching for good lawyers that didn't charge an arm and a leg. I didn't have much luck, until my friend suggested I call Phil. He had nothing but good things to say about Phil. He assured me that Phil would fight hard for me and get me out of the mess I was in. I left a message with Phil and got a call back the next day to set up a consultation. Phil heard my story and decided what the best plan of action would be. He was reasonably priced and confident he would get me the best possible results for my situation. I chose Phil because I could tell he was a genuinely honest, straight-forward kind of guy, who doesn't sugar-coat things. After a few court dates within several months, Phil was able to get my Attempt to Elude Felony charge dropped to a Reckless Driving, which was the main objective in order to keep my job and my record fairly clean. I was very happy with the results and his services. He was there every step of the way, and he sent me weekly, and sometimes daily updates to what was going on with the case. I found immediate relief when everything was resolved, and was happy to get back to normal life and not think about my bad decision. If you are in trouble and need immediate help, don't hesitate to call Phil. He will fight for you and get you the best possible results. He is a man of his word and a very genuine individual who knows how to play the game and win!
I never thought i would ever need a criminal attorney until 7 months ago. I was facing an assault 2 charge and had picked up anti fans on the internet as well, and then i met Phil. With all the horror stories out there about lawyers, i was surprised there was one who still confidently could back it up when he says trust me. He wont lie to you and he will do exactly what he says he would do. He carries you along the whole way and will always keep you updated. He remembers you're still a human being and will work his hardest to remind the justice system too. I don't care how bad you think your case is. He's the kind that doesn't just fight for you, he will feel for you more than just a paycheck. And now i too understand why all the glowing reviews.
Thank you Phil, you made the impossible possible. You gave me my life back. Thank you and God bless you
Phil Is a great lawyer and very personable. He takes the time to make sure you are taken care of, he also will tell you the truth and not give you broken promises. This to me is great because you want someone who will tell you the truth in the matter. We are very happy we used him as our lawyer in the tough situation we were in. He was able to get us the best result for the situation we were facing and we are very thankful for him. If you are looking for a lawyer I may be biased but you should definitely go with Mr. Sayles. He isn't your regular lawyer who is just looking for a paycheck, he actually really cares about you and takes the time to make sure you are really taken care of. Thank you so much , Phil we are very grateful for you.
Phil Sayles where do I begin? This is a man with passion for what he does. I know this because I hired him for my son. He has stood by him through thin and NOW thick. Not only has he gone above and beyond his duties for my son he also couched me through my co-dependency. Did he say some things that were hard to hear sometimes ok but….. When I followed his advice it WORKED !!!! Phil is a God sent angel. He works so hard and is honest to a fault. He’s a straight shooter and I believe that is what most of his clients and their parents need. If life ever finds you in need of an attorney run and I mean RUN to Philip Sayles you won’t be sorry you did. He is all of what others have said he is. What a GREAT man I am very glad to know him.
I am what you would consider a newbie, I was accused of a very serious crime,and Phil,explained everything to me on how the system worked, he knew I was scared but he was there by side for everything, he even called to see how I was doing, Phil went above and beyond to prove my innocence, and in the end my case was dismissed,,, Phil thank you for taking such good care of me, and fighting for me... you are my hero.......... I and my family thank you..God Bless
After contacting several attorneys we found Phil! I believe God sent him to our family when we were in need. He isn't like other attorneys...he is truly unique, caring and amazing at what he does. He cares about his clients more than his pay check. I hate when people sugar coat things so I was very happy that Phil cut straight to the chase. Phil, will tell you exactly how it is and he does exactly what he says he is going to do. He said he would send us updates I thought...mmmm maybe once a week but no he sent us updates almost everyday. He kept us updated and in the loop about everything going on in my dad's case. He went above and beyond! He is an extremely hard worker, he puts in long hours and gets the job done. He also treats each client (including their family) like family! He truly cares about people, believes people make mistakes and this is why he is such a great attorney. If you want an attorney who is:
WILLING TO FIGHT FOR YOU
DOES MORE THAN YOU PAY HIM FOR
HAS A BIG HEART
then Phil is a no-brainer...hire him!
Read the rest of his reviews...they are all the same!! He comes HIGHLY recommended! I'm very happy to call Phil a friend for life! He has touched our hearts and lives...THANK YOU PHIL!
I wish there were words that could be written to describe the gratitude and love my family has for the attorney, the man, the hero in our lives that is Phillip Sayles.
Really likeable guy. Phil can be gruf and brutally honest, but this is to serve in your best interest. He really cares about your case, your success, he cares about you. He is extremely fair with fees and billing. I got way more service than I paid for. He treats you like family rather than a way to make money. This guy has major balls and is not afraid to stand for you and passionately make arguements on your behalf. He also knows when to play it soft and easy to get things rolling. I highly recommend him and the office he works in. Years later if he randomly runs into he will ask how you are doing and has a genuine interest in your success. Its not about money its about excellence in service.
I'm not from Washington but i had some issues arise that landed me in need of a lawyer with a quickness in Everett. I actually had a friend contact Phil on my behalf. He was most helpful in handling all our questions and assisting in all my legal issue. He was able to use the information provided and get my case dismissed before the first court date. He was and is truly a professional kept me informed and still maintains contact to see how things are going two months after the fact. I would highly recommend him to any one in need of a good down to earth lawyer.
I know lots of times you read reviews and you wonder did the attorney write this his self (smile). Well Phil to me is GOD sent ...I had hired another attorney do to circumstances with not a lot of funds to put down right away. This attorney robbed us blind took the money and never showed up prior to court or any of his appointments. We felt like that was our last straw. And we had no where else to go since that was all our money at that time. Phil was defending another inmate at that time. The other inmate was concerned that our attorney never showed up. The other inmate advised us to call Phil, we did and like I said heaven sent. Phil met with my husband, and then met with me. He advised me, he would do his hardest and we had work cut out for us. He was facing 30 years and when he showed up to meet me, I pretty much advised him I didn't trust anyone after what the last attorney did. He advised me that I would see results and he would keep in contact the whole way. Right away he started going to see him and getting on the case as we expected the first time. He never tried to hide anything from us and always let us know what we were looking at. He ended up being sentenced to 8 years which I know is some time, however we can say we know he fought the whole way...He was more than an attorney, he was and is a great friend. I love that he gives it to you straight no PG version. He prepared us that he may have to serve some time due to he is a repeated offender and it was an assault with a weapon, but at least we know that he will be home sooner than later. We know the value of what we got.. That was a good deal, a friend, and an attorney in the future if need be. (One thing I love about this man, that I will never forget is.. I told him that I felt like my husband was losing hope and it worried me...Phil went right down there and asked him what was going on? Are you going to trust me or not? Let me know right now if you are a wimp/p**** because if you are then I don't represent those.) It made my husband laugh and snap out of it. Being able to talk to our attorney about that and him care meant the world to us...It made us feel like it wasn't all about the money and that he genuinely cared...And that is the best thing you can get out of Phil, and the next best thing is that he will fight for you. I would definitely recommend him and pray that no one has to go through what we did with the previous attorney.. Cheaper isn't always better ..And with Phil you get more than what you pay for. We love him and his team for that...Thank You Phil and your team...Not from the bottom, and not from the top ...But sincerely with our whole hearts we Thank You ...GOD sent you right on time!!!
He talks a lot of sh*t, but definitely backs it up...Thank goodness he was our attorney (smile)!!!
