Phil was extraordinary. Details matter in litigation and he absolutely understands that.
His preparation before trial was impressive. There was no stone unturned. Every deposition and piece of evidence was assessed and reassessed to find any potential inconsistency to strengthen our case. This is the type of preparation that finds success in all endeavors and particularly in litigation.
In the courtroom, in large part due to his preparation and thorough understanding of the case at hand, he was completely at ease and unflappable. This was not lost on the judge, jury or plaintiff's attorneys. Because he had such a command of the facts and the issues he immediately established himself as the most credible of the attorneys involved. His credibility enabled him to be the more persuasive litigator and he easily controlled the outcome of the case. Defense verdict in 36 minutes.
Phil was always pleasant, informed, capable and intelligent from pretrial preparation to the resolution of the trial. I always felt confident with my legal team with Phil in the lead. Phil helped make an otherwise unpleasant experience almost enjoyable. It certainly helps that the case settled in my favor.
Mr. deMaine did a fantastic job on a complex malpractice case. He was very helpful in all aspects of the trial and did a particularly good job preparing me for the deposition and cross examination. This was a difficult case to defend but the verdict was for all of the defendants.
After an auto accident on I-5 that resulted in medical injuries, I initially chose to work directly with insurers on both sides of the issue--car repairs, insurer statements, medical billing and reimbursement. When the one year anniversary arrived, bills had begun to pile up, I had to deal with an independent medical exam ordered by the insurer, and had to spend more and more time negotiating with the insurers, medical providers and my health insurer. With a full time job, I found it impossible to keep up. Phil deMaine and colleagues made it easy--I must say I had low expectations, hoping only that the billing back and forth communications with the insurers and providers would be resolved. I handed it all over to him. Financially, my final settlement far, far exceeded my expectations. He kept me informed throughout the process, and his responses to my queries by email or phone were prompt and efficient. This comes from a person who likes to control matters and is more inclined to be suspicious and questioning--Phil is solid and trustworthy. Thank you Phil and colleagues!
Lawyers, by nature, make me nervous, but Phil went out of his way to make me feel comfortable. He clearly had the situation under control, he always kept me in the loop, and there were no surprises. Phil, quite simply, took a potentially very stressful situation, and got a wonderful outcome for me. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

Mr. deMaine was extremely knowledgeable, efficient and caring. He returned my emails and calls promptly and made me feel my case was his top priority. He worked through all the various aspects of my case carefully and thoroughly. With his knowledge and counsel I was able to obtain the best possible result for my case. I am extremely grateful for Mr. deMaine's guidance and legal expertise.
I found this attorney very professional and trustworthy in defending my case.
Mr. deMaine handled my defense in a Medical Malpractice case recently and I'm pleased to be able to recommend him without reservation. He, and his office, demonstrated an admirable blend of genuine concern for me, combined with the efficiency and wise guidance of the seasoned professional.
Phil deMaine is an exemplary lawyer. He is very sharp, extremely professional and knowledgeable. He exhibits excellent communication skills, was responsive to my needs, and is tenacious. Most importantly, he is honest and cares about his clients. He was there whenever I had a question and he got the job done in a timely manner, without too much interruption of my business. He did an outstanding job handling my case about a year ago, and we won. I would highly recommend him.
