Great Attorney
Mr. DeBerard is an amazing litigator with the utmost knowledge and skill. In the case he handled for me, he gave me a "spot-on" analysis of the case's strengths and weaknesses and informed us of exactly what to expect through the process. His staff are almost as great as he is! I strongly recommend Mr. DeBerard and would definitely use him again.

Excellent Lawyer
Philip helped get me adjudication withheld instead of a conviction. Everyone thinks they're right, but I actually was wrongly accused. This man helped me get my life together. I'm now on track to becoming a real estate agent, and don't have to worry about not getting a job because of a past arrest. God bless this man.
