I needed a lawyer that would listen to me . I was going through a custody issue with my ex-wife. I tried to explain my issues with other attorneys and they stated it was too complicated. I was about to give up until a friend of mine who is a lawyer told me that the best person to go to if I wanted to stand a chance of winning was Kimberly Phillips. I told her my story and all the issues that I was having. She told me that she understood what I was going through and knew exactly what to do to help me with my situation. I hired her because I knew that she really wanted to help me. Her actions spoke louder than her words. She always contacted me continuously to keep me up to date at all times on what direction we were headed. I never had to wonder what was going on. She was always available to answer all my questions. She is very honest. She always showed concern. It seems as if she never stop working. She made me feel that I was her only client. I appreciated her kindness and her patience. Mrs. Phillips explained legal terms to me in a way that I could understand it. Mrs. Phillips did endless research on my case and was able to discover things about my ex-wife that I didn't know. In court, Mrs Phillips STOOD HER ground. I was very impressed. She is very good. If it wasn't for Mrs.Phillips, I would not have won custody of my son. I can not thank her enough. I have never met anyone like her. She is the BEST.

I rarely, if ever, write reviews, but had to make an exception for Kimberly Hughes Phillips. She is a true professional and she represented me well, in a very difficult case. Mrs. Phillips worked tirelessly to make sure my concerns were heard in court, regarding my concerns about my children. Her hard work enabled me to obtain primary and legal custody of my children. She thoroughly listened to my case and did her best to make sure that all of my expectations in the case were met. Her staff is also fantastic. Would definitely recommend Kimberly Hughes Phillips.

Ms. Phillips and her staff provided practical advice that kept the anxiety of the unknown at bay. Her solid foundation of experience led to a fair and equitable result of a tumultuous divorce. The staff always made themselves available to assist. Concerns about costs were important and I always felt confident that the most efficient steps were taken to minimize expenses. I have already referred other friends and family to this firm. Many thanks to Kim, Lisa, Leine and Tammy for the kind words and guidance during these most difficult times.
