True fighter for his clients.
Phillip helped me through a difficult time. He went above and beyond showed up in court without giving him any advanced notice and got my case dismissed before I even had to show up for court. Phillip Liles is a great attorney, always follows up and keeps good communication with his clients and he truly cares about his clients and goes the extra mile. Phillip explained the whole process and made me feel completely calm the whole time. I have never had a better lawyer! So greatful!

Great attorney! He was on top of my case every step of the way.
Phillip helped me with a DWI case, involving a sobriety checkpoint in Wake County. Having refused any field sobriety or breath testing, the DMV automatically revoked my license. Phillip successfully challenged the revocation at the DMV hearing. Furthermore, he was able to get my DWI case dismissed in court. Essentially, we was more well prepared than the prosecutor.

Excellent Attorney
The offices of Fay & Grafton are a pleasure to work with. Their office staff are helpful and professional and their attorneys are intelligent and skilled at their trade. Phillip Liles represented my case and was able to get it dismissed, something I thought when originally approaching them was bordering on the impossible. He and his staff truly have my thanks.

Excellent lawyer!
Phillip was the lead attorney on my case. The whole office (Fay & Grafton), including him are a great team and very responsive. It is evident that he has a very good knowledge of the law and that he cares about his clients. I would highly recommend him.

Phillip Liles Really Took Care of Our Whole Family
Mr. Liles represented a member of our family facing charges that carried potential severe penalties. He not only worked with the DA to ensure we were treated fairly, but he made sure our entire family felt comfortable with the process. He even followed up after the case was settled to make sure everyone was doing OK. It is not a stretch to say that his efforts kept our family from falling apart. We owe him a lot and will forever be grateful.

Endorse Phillip
Criminal defense Attorney | Aug 27
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Phillip is a conscientious and thoughtful advocate for his clients. He will settle for nothing short of the best result achievable. I can without hesitation endorse Phillip as someone who will always provide diligent and effective representation."
DUI and DWI Attorney | Jul 22
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Phillip is a highly talented lawyer. I had the pleasure of interacting with and trying cases against Phillip while he was an assistant district attorney in Wake County. As a prosecutor, Phillip was tough but fair. Since Phillip left the district attorney's office I have had the opportunity to see him in action as a criminal defense attorney. To put it very succinctly, Phillip is a very skilled trial lawyer. In addition to those skills he brings a calming personality and professional attitude into his interactions with the Court, prosecutors, and clients. I highly recommend Phillip for anyone looking for help with a criminal or traffic matter."
Unknown Attorney | May 26
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I am impressed with Mr. Liles's thoughtful advice and answers to legal questions on Avvo. He has an in-depth understanding of the law and an ability to communicate legal concepts clearly and effectively. I endorse this lawyer!"
Criminal defense Attorney | Dec 11
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I couldnt endorse a better defense lawyer in Wake county than Phillip Liles. I was in a unique and critical situation--a lawyer that needed a lawyer. Phillip represented me for the most important reason; that he wanted to help. The benefit of his experience as a former prosecutor in Wake County was immediately evident to me. He knew the players, he knew the system, and he knew how to put me in a position to get my charges dismissed. And he made it seem effortless. He's professional, personable and dedicated. In short--he's one of the good guys."
Criminal defense Attorney | Nov 09
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Phillip and I went to college together and just recently, by coincidence, ended up working on a matter together that spanned the States of North and South Carolina. We were able to successfully resolve some false allegations pending against a client and get dismissals a short time after our client was extradited from North Carolina to South Carolina. I was pleased to work again with my friend in a situation that yielded such positive results."
Criminal defense Attorney | Aug 24
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Phillip is an experienced and knowledgeable trial attorney. He's not afraid to fight for his clients. If you have a criminal matter and need help, Phillip is the attorney for you."

Criminal defense Attorney | Aug 27

Criminal defense Attorney | Aug 19
Relationship: Co-worker
"Phillip is an outstanding attorney and I'm happy to refer criminal cases his way. Phillip sets reasonable expectations for my clients, he has a good feel for whether prosecutors have enough evidence to get a conviction, and his trial skills are exceptional. When my clients have criminal issues, it is quite often the case that their immigration status depends entirely on the outcome. Phillip gets results."
