Great Lawyer
I have referred two neighbors to Phil following a car accident. Both can’t stop thanking me. He doesn’t sugarcoat. He listens. He is responsive (he responds to texts all hours of the day / night). He is aggressive. You will not regret hiring Phil after a car accident.

Car accident
I appreciate this man and his assistant, Martha. They both constantly explained the situation with me at different points of my case. It did take over a year to officially close but then again it took almost a year for a doctor and chiropractor to get me to feeling somewhat better. They kept in contact with me to see when my appointments were and my progress to getting better. I thank them.

I AM BACK!!
“I AM BACK”!!…those were words that our son said upon leaving the courthouse after trial. His Attorney Philip Synder and Associate Courtney Steiger were instrumental in getting our son a verdict of not guilty from the jurors. Philip Synder is very approachable. He always took the time to explain in detail what our family needed to know. He has a calming, confident, and at times witty style in courtroom that draws people into listening to what he has to say. We are so grateful that he took our son “under his wing” and helped him through a nightmare of an ordeal. With confidence, Philip Synder would be the first attorney I would highly recommend to anyone who needs legal counsel. He is exceedingly knowledgeable and he cares about his clients. Word of advice to anyone who seeks Mr. Synder, make sure he wears his American Flag pin during trial! He will tell you why!! Thank you from the bottom of our family’s heart for your dedication to this case and believing in our son.

Phillip Snyder: Saved My Life
I just wanted to share my amazing experience that I had with Philip Snyder. I was accused of felony, life-altering, charges that would have ruined the entirety of the rest of my life. From the moment I found and first spoke to Philip, he immediately took charge of the situation, dropped everything else he was working on, and dedicated all of his time to me and my case. The case itself was very tough and I had already admitted the crimes I committed to Police and gave them my confession. The crime I committed was in self-defense and due to the nature of what I did in self-defense, not a single person believed my side of the story besides Philip. Philip did an unbelievably amazing job throughout the entire situation from start to finish and completely OWNED the court room during our 2 days of criminal felony trial. The way Philip proceeded in court and the way he defended me as unique trusted individual literally put me in tears. It was almost like Philip had known me my entire life and he was fighting to save my life which he did. Even with the state having my confession and a ton of evidence against me, every single juror came to a Not Guilty verdict at the end of the trial. I could have not have asked for a better lawyer and he surpassed my expectations by a million times. Philip literally saved my life and I recommend him to each and every one of you that are looking for legal council. Phil, thank you so much my friend. I am forever in debt to you.

Mr. Snyder is a sharp, talented and trust worthy attorney.
Mr. Snyder represented me and helped with a couple other issues. I would not enter a S. Florida courtroom without him, regardless of the situation. He is the kind of attorney that will tell you to hire another firm to represent you if he could not give you his best.

Total Trust. Fierce Representation!
I was arrested in May, 2014 on a warrant that was almost two years old for cyberstalking. A former female friend and business partner had possession of my property and would not return it. Following my arrest I contacted Mr. Snyder for my defense of these baseless charges. Mr. Snyder vehemently represented me, getting all charges dropped. He is very responsive to my phone calls and text messages. His staff are friendly, professional and also responsive. I highly recommend Mr. Snyder's legal services for civil or criminal matters.

Phillip Snyder: Best Lawyer Ever...
I'm not here to advertise Phillip but i wanna tell the truth! Phillip is the best Lawyer that i've never met in my life. My baby mama drama lied on me and sent me to jail twice. I have been charged domestic violence/ felony. But each time Phillip got these charged dropped. Thank you Phillip for everything you have done for me. +

The Best Of All The Rest
He came to us from on-line and we bless the day we found him. He has, with his expertise, returned our lives to normal, something I thought was not possible. I recommend him most highly to anyone looking for a caring, responsive, well informed, professional lawyer. The Best of All the Rest

Honest & Professional
Mr. Snyder treated me with the upmost professionalism. He quickly resolved my case sparring me of any unnecessary costs. I highly recommend the LyonsSnyder Law Group.

Above and Beyond the Call of Duty
Mr. Snyder somehow got the Court to suppress the evidence ... The State had to dismiss all the charges. I am so lucky I fired my Public Defender ... the PD wanted me to take a plea! Mr. Snyder kept me informed of everything that was happening with my case. 100% satisfied.
