Someone who you can count on
Phil has been my lawyer for about 5 years and has assisted me with several cases regarding my divorce, child support, contempt actions as well as another misc case. He knows the law and does not miss the little things which is what I value.

Exactly The Lawyer We Needed
I can’t tell you how much we appreciate you. We knew we were taking on a challenge - even though it was the right thing to do - and that it would be an uphill climb but we had no idea how emotionally difficult and unnecessarily contentious it would be. However, we couldn’t have chosen a better lawyer to help us navigate this. You have been exactly what we needed - straight forward, honest, a sounding board and a partner in navigating this mess. If it wasn’t for you our family wouldn’t have this chance at stability, calm and happiness. Thank you for all of it.

I would highly recommend!
When you are in the middle of divorce or a custody battle, all is quite complicated and challenging. Phil was the perfect choice for me. He took all my fears away and was extremely patient with my many questions and thorough with every aspect of my case. He was and continues to be a pleasure to work with. I would recommend him highly. Thanks Phil

A+++
My life was pretty much in shambles when I began my search for an attorney. Ending a 23 year marriage and being a stay at home mom was a nightmare to me. It so happened a friend of a friend recommended Phil to me. From my first meeting with Phil I was impressed with his knowledge of the law and compassion for my circumstances. I knew he would fight for me but at the same time would not let my emotions lead to something I would regret in the future. Having Phil on my side was a relief. I will highly recommend Phil and his firm to those in need of an exceptional lawyer.

Amazing attorney with the highest integrity
I hired Mr. McCurdy last year for a modification of custody case. The case is ongoing. So far I have been very pleased. He’s smart and thorough. One of my sons signed an election of custody. He put him at ease and made the process easy for him. Mr. McCurdy is very conscientious and detail oriented. He has communicated well with me throughout the case and explained everything to me in layman’s terms. He communicates well with the guardian ad lidim assigned to the case as well. He also has an outstanding legal assistant. She promptly returns my calls and emails. I highly recommend Mr. Mccurdy. He’s an outstanding attorney and is caring also. It’s difficult to find an attorney who is both.

Patient, Godsend, Compassionate and Methodical
Phil was my third attorney and took over my case in the middle of the suit. It was a highly volatile and complex child modification/custody matter. Phil is born to be in the courtroom, always pleasant and works well with all parties involved to try and reach a middle ground. He is strategically brilliant, which is what led the case to settlement. I would highly recommend him. He is a Godsend. Thank you Phil, you have changed my life for the better.

Caring Efficient Smart---way to go Phil
Phil is an efficient lawyer and takes care of his clients really well. I had worked with him for my divorce case. The way he dealt with the entire process is professional. He would furnish the details with all honesty. The way he dealt the situation during mediation process is awesome and excellent. He was with me and supporting me all through the process. Last but not the least if the client provides all the details with all honesty and integrity, he goes above and beyond to help them out. I would recommend Phil

Job Well Done
I have used Phil several times and have been very happy with the representation that I have received. Phil is a real details guy and has great court presence. I always feel that Phil has full control of my case and will get me the best outcome possible under the circumstances. I know that I'm not the easiest of clients but Phil deals with me in a straight forward and honest manner which every client deserves.

Smooth process, honest fees
Phil represented me in my recent divorce. He helped me reach a fair financial settlement and custody schedule that gives me a lot of time with my child. The divorce process ended up being unexpectedly complicated due to limited direct communication between the parties and difficulty reaching a compromise. Phil charged an honest price for the additional arbitration and lawyer-to-lawyer communications. If child custody is a major issue for you, I wouldn't hesitate to trust Phil with your case.

Thanks John, I really appreciate the kind review and enjoyed working with you. I'm glad we got this resolved and the follow-up arbitration proved to be the right choice (even if it was a little unusual).

Choose Phillip McCurdy
After several months with an attorney who left me feeling under-represented, I made the switch to Phil McCurdy. Within ten minutes of meeting him, it was clear that he has exhaustive knowledge of the local courts and all their players. His advice was thoughful and encouraging, and always grounded. The settlement was quick and had a far better result due to his involvement.

Thanks for the kind endorsement. It is gracious of you to call a full day of mediation "quick". I appreciate that the exercise can be grueling while you're in it, but the outcome at the end of the day was worth the effort.

Highly Recommend for Divorce Case
Phil is top notch. He is very knowledgable and assertive, which is exactly what you want in an attorney. He handled my case professionally and efficiently, which kept the invoices reasonable. Phil made great recommendations while having a good idea of what the opposing counsel would offer. I appreciate everything Phil has done in handling my case, and working with me every step of the way. I would highly recommend hiring Phil in a divorce case.

Excellence in details.
On two separate occasions during sensitive contract negotiations we hired Phil to provide key insights to better define our position in the process with the contracting company. His attention to detail allowed us to move forward with clarity and a defined position in the process. Each contract closed due to Phil's expertise in providing the support we needed. We highly recommend Phil and we won't sign anything in the future without first allowing him the opportunity to review our contracts and agreements.

Wonderful experience!
From day one after hiring Phil to help me navigate my extremely complicated divorce case, I received guidance and comfort during the most devastating period of my life. I required massive amounts of help negotiating a both fair and reasonable settlement, and needed a calming presence and a reassuring voice to help me realize that my children and I would obtain everything we would need financially to move forward. Phil handled all the aspects of my divorce with professionalism, and worked out a fair and reasonable visitation schedule, along with child support payments and spousal support. I could not be more pleased with his knowledge and sensibility, and his ability to reassure me when I truly felt like my life was in tremendous disarray. I am so pleased with my decision to hire Phil, and extremely grateful for everything he has done for me and my kids.

Couldn't have asked for a better experience
Before I found Phil I had contacted another lawyer about getting my emergency hearing pushed through. He was dragging his feet so I asked a family member if he knew anyone and he got me in touch with Phil. When I had my consult with Phil he told me that he can write up a document to be filed that same day. Sure enough he called me about an hour later to inform me that he had drafted the document and had it ready for me to take down to the courthouse. Phil was extremely professional and took care of all of my needs for my case, he even attempted to help communicate with the previous lawyer that I was working with. I was extremely pleased with how much effort he put into my case, his communications with me, and how he showed genuine care for me as a client. I would highly recommend Phil to anyone looking for someone to represent them in court.
