I am almost fifty years old and have never had a run in with the law. I had a momentary lapse of better judgement and was facing six months in jail at the behest of the complaintent which I had never met in my life. Long story short, attorney Karen Phillips was able to work with me and the county prosecutor to resolve the the case to all parties satisfaction.
I would highly recommend Ms. Karen Phillips as an attorney for anyone who is facing a criminal offense. She is very professional and effective and will treat one with the utmost respect.

I had a very serious case in which jail time was on the table and had Karen not been my lawyer, I couldn't have said that I wouldn't serve time. I was facing two felonies and a misdemeanor. Her experience and knowledge was a must with my case and her work ethic for me was next to none. She's very easy to talk to and someone that's very genuine, honest, trustworthy, and understanding. In a tough time Karen was there for me and my situation and was willing to work with me as my main residence is out of state, in California. When it was all said and done she worked out a deal that handed me probation with no jailtime and essentially my life back. What was such a hard case and even harder time, she always gave me the peace of mind. I wouldn't do it again without Karen. THANKS KAREN!

Karen went above and beyond my expectations. Before my arraignment, she explained my possible outcomes, which was expected to be either probation, or community service and fines. She was fully prepared while speaking to the judge, and the judge settled on only a fine as discipline. I credit that all to Karen. She is very calm and relaxed, which helped a lot during this difficult time. I would recommend her to anyone in need of legal advice.
