About John

Learn John’s areas of practice.

Johnny Phillips is no stranger to Georgia.  He is originally from the Metropolitan Atlanta Area.  Johnny served in the Air Force for eight years as an Investigator and Security Forces attended his first year of law school at Mercer University and then went on to complete his Juris Doctor at Georgia State, where he graduated in the top five percent of his class.  Johnny ensures his clients get the best possible resolution for their matters either without litigation, or with the filing of a lawsuit. From there, Johnny ensures his clients receive the best legal representation through an early settlement of their claims or through a trial and verdict of their cases.

Thank You Johnny
Johnny believed in me when other attorneys doubted me and released me. My claim against a rental car company, a manufacturer, and a tire shop and perhaps more parties. Johnny said that my case was unique and he wants to take it....I was so stunned he retained me and my was unreal. After being rejected by 40 law offices. I thank God above for this attorney.

Professional Services
When I came to Johnny Phillips law I was really disheartened with my previous attorney. However, his confidence and determination put me at ease. No matter what the question no matter how many calls he handled them with the greatest ease. His staff always displayed the most professional behavior and returned all calls within a reasonable amount of time. I would recommend this firm to anyone.

Mr. Phillips represented me competently and settled my case in mediation. He is a smart attorney and a good litigator/mediator. I was kept abreast of each phase of the process which was really helpful in that I've never been through anything like this before. The updates helped pace my expectations for closure.

Total disappointment
Hired this office or firm to handle and take care of my case where I was hit by a guy texting and driving totaling my truck causing me to flip two times they failed to stay in contact with me I can never get in touch with them they give me a ride around and misled me into accept him something I was not happy with I would not recommend these people to anyone if you care anything about what you should get back in return of you losing then these people have nothing for you because they will not get you anything but what helps them and deeper in debt

This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
I contacted Att. J. Phillips office to see if I wanted to have them represent in an accident case. I NEVER SPOKE WITH THE ATTORNEY. I gave the office representative my email address to send a document to me to sign to have them possibily represent me. Nonetheless, after reading the negative reviews, I decided that I did not wish to have them represent me. I told them that because of the negative reviews that I had read online, I did not need their assisstance. They emailed me a second time telling me that I needed to complete the document to allow them to represent me. ONCE AGAIN, I explained that I would not need their services. THEY CONTACTED ME AGAIN THROUGH EMAIL. I told them a third time. YOUR REVIEWS ARE BAD. PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ME AGAIN BECAUSE I WILL SEE IT A HARASSMENT!!!! THE CONTACTED ME AGAIN!!!!!!!!! They will not stop emailing me a contract!!!! Please do not email them ....unless you want them to CONSTANTLY HARASS YOU!!!! i do not wish to use your services...
