Phil Nash absolutely knocked it out of the park
After two years of having a criminal case hanging over my head, yesterday it was over. Rick Collins and Phil Nash were an amazing team that put in a lot of time on my case and it paid off. I won't discuss it but it was jaw dropping.

Phill Nash 5 Stars
Phil is a one of a kind lawyer. He put his heart, relentless time and effort into my situation. He was always available, loyal and really busted his behind. I am so impressed with his work I could go on for paragraphs. He is one of very few lawyers I believe you will find and I have had a lot of them, that is always available, calm answers each and every question. I must have worded questions 9 different ways multiple times. He always gave me a truthful answer, never dodged my calls or emails. 5 stars all the way! Thank you Phil.

The very best out there
Phillip Nash is one of a kind. During a you mesons youth I found myself very hopeless that I would recover from the error of my ways. Phillip Nash reached out to me and provided me with a chance to start my life over and become anew. Had it not been for his enthusiasm, will, perseverance, diligence, professionalism, knowledge and overall skills I would not have a promising future. Thankyou so much from the bottom of my heart from my family and myself for everything you have done. As far as lawyers go he is timely, understanding, warm, smart, productive and skilled. What more could One possibly need. Thank you. Highly recommended! Best of the best!

Extremely compassionate lawyer, truly listens to the client!! HOW REFRESHING
I knew Phil was special on the initial phone consultation. Although I did not pay for this Phil spent maybe 30 minutes on the phone with me going over my case. I felt as if I was on the phone with a friend. I then met Phil in person and it was literally as if I was visiting a friend. At no time did I feel rushed. He went over every aspect of the case as well as every aspect as to what we could expect. I hired him on the spot and I am glad I did. There was great communication along the way and I am proud to say we achieved the outcome I wanted. I have to say Phil never guaranteed my great outcome but gave me a realistic opinion that we were hoping to achieve that outcome. This is important because you should be wary of promises of achieving your goal. Phil was great and I hope I never need a lawyer again but if I do calling Phil is a no brainer!!!!!

Patient, courteous, professional, and most importantly A WINNER!
After a somewhat exhaustive search for representation, I stumbled upon Philip through a mutual connection. We set up a preliminary phone call to introduce ourselves and so I could brief Philip on the intricacies of my case. He was extremely professional and knowledgable while preparing for my court date, which but my mind at ease and boosted my confidence in the lead up. In court it was obvious Philip was well prepared for my case and our victory was swift. I highly recommend Philip Nash for your next defense.
