The most effective, intelligent and caring divorce lawyer in Miami.
Emily Phillips successfully helped me to resolve a highly bitter divorce case with an excellent outcome! My ex was unreasonable and only out for blood and revenge. Her attorney only cared about taking my money and padding his pocket by filing lawsuit after lawsuit. He didn't care about the effect of litigation on my child. Emily put a stop to the shenanigans. She is a bright, intelligent, caring, reasonable, and most importantly, a very effective lawyer!
