Outstanding Lawyer
If you need a personal injury lawyer I can highly recommend Charles “Chuck” Philips. He just won a case for me and I was very impressed with his legal skills and his caring personality. He doesn’t advertise because he relies on satisfied clients, like me, to personally recommend him to others. My personal recommend is sincere. Advertisements are written by ad agencies and may have nothing to do with the truth.

Mr. Phillips came highly recommended and we're so happy for that. He handled our car accident case so well from the beginning. He kept us in the loop and let us know what to expect step by step. He answered all our questions with patience and we never doubted his dedication. I definitely recommend him and his efficient staff.

Going the extra mile for their clients
I'd highly recommend Chuck and his entire team at Philips and Raaymakers Law. They did a great job when we needed them the most. Sharon and Chuck both had excellent communication throughout the process. They treated us like family. Thanks for everything!

Great man, excellent lawyer!
I sought Chuck’s expertise after being in an auto accident. He referred me to great doctors to receive treatment for my injuries. He also handled the insurance companies for me. I was even able to walk away with an excellent settlement that was far greater than expected. His partner, attorney Raaymakers, is also wonderful. If you’re in need of assistance due to an automobile accident or injury, Philips & Raaymakers is the absolute best choice, by far. Thank you, Chuck!

High Regard, Respect, & Trust
I cannot adequately articulate the trust, respect, and high regard I have for Chuck Philips. How grateful I am for the work that he did to help get compensation for me following a car accident. From the very beginning, I was confident in Chuck's competence based on his experience from both the insurance side and the plaintiff side. Throughout the process, I was regularly consulted, educated and kept informed so that I could make the best decisions for my optimal health and wellbeing including my mental health since my accident also involved trauma. Chuck always acted in my best interest. Chuck truly provided personal and professional service. I will always recommend him to anyone who has been injured and needs a trustworthy and competent attorney. I am so grateful that he was there to help me.

Patience, knowledge, and experience.
Recently, a man put his truck in reverse and slammed into our vehicle as we were leaving our neighborhood. Having no experience with something like this we are so glad we ended up calling the Law Office of Philips and Raaymakers. Throughout this stressful process, Chuck was always accessible and patiently answered our numerous questions to put our minds at ease. It has been comforting to know we were consulting with someone with such extensive experience and knowledge. He is dedicated to helping accident victims and their families through the difficult, overwhelming, and frustrating process following an accident with injuries. Our advice is to not try to do this on your own, but rather call Chuck and ask for his professional help. You will be so relieved to know you are in such good hands.

Philips & Raaymakers Law is the best! My experience was with Chuck Philips who will work hard to get results for you. I found Chuck to be very experienced, knowledgable, attentive, reliable and honest. He was always ready to answer my questions and calm my nerves which was much needed. His patient way of explaining the complicated legal process was very clear and he was able to frame the major issues so that I felt in control and was able to make informed decisions. I highly recommend this firm to anyone who needs legal assistance. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

Auto accident
November 2019 I was involved in a auto accident... Not at fault thankfully! My vehicle was totaled, and I had a fractured heel & ankle. I am so grateful to Chuck and his team for helping my husband and I through a difficult time and for not giving up on my case!! Very early on in the case Chuck was up front and honest with how my husband and I should not get our hopes up, on recovering from the other party but he would also not rest until he explored every possibility. So just when I thought things were done and over, I get a call from him, with good news! I had stopped even thinking about the case for at least 6 months or more but not Chuck! He kept his word and continued persuing things! I highly recommend Chuck and his team! He is definitely one of the good one's!!!

Personal injury Attorney | May 14
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Chuck personally handles all aspects of his cases, and his support staff is exceptional with clients. I have referred cases to him for many years and have never been disappointed with an outcome. I had worked with other personal injury lawyers before my first case with Chuck, but none were as good as Chuck at educating the client about the process or his dedication to their case. He is a true professional who has worked both the defense and plaintiff sides of personal injury cases, so he has a realistic perspective of a new matter from the beginning. He will spend as much time as needed to answer questions and explain what is required. My staff enjoys working with Chuck when he comes to my office in Inverness for consultations with clients, and I look forward to many more years of using his knowledge and experience to benefit our clients. He is a true Rotarian and has become a treasured friend."

His fees were reasonable, and he charged substantially less than he could have charged. He discovered additional funds for the client and obtained an outstanding result. Chuck is the first attorney I would call for a personal injury issue"
