I would pick him again to represent us.
We were referred to Phil through a personal friend. We were reluctant to hire a lawyer, but were really glad we did. My mother got injured in an automobile accident. From the time of the initial consultation, until our final court date, Phil was there explaining the process and guiding us to make good decisions. With Phil in our corner, we were able to fight and win a large settlement. I never want to go through that again, but if I should need a lawyer again, I would call Phil.

Excellent Attorney!
Mr. Toutant represented us in a recent wrongful death case and we were very happy with how well we were treated. This attorney is the one you want to help you navigate the justice system and to be on your side. I would recommend him to anyone needing an attorney!

After wasting a year with a rather lazy lawyer, finding Phil was a dream. Nothing but professional, Phil was diligent and dedicated, ultimately leading to a policy limits win. I felt cared for throughout the process and was thoroughly impressed with his attention to detail. Though I hope the need never arises, I would happily choose to work with Mr. Toutant again.

Nonprofit regulation compliance case
As a manager of a 501C3 educational nonprofit, a dispute between a State regulatory agency concerning license issues arose which required legal advice and represention. Through the Board of Directors and input from community leaders we sought an attorney with a reputation for knowledge, previous case experience and success with a case such as our organization presented. Our initial contact with the law firm of Numinen, Deforge and Toutant was extremely professional and productive. Attorney Numinen initiated a reassurance and informative meeting of which we left feeling hopeful and educatated concerning our upcoming legal needs. We also were thankful for the compassion he presented to these very nervous and novice clients about to begin a legal issue with the State. Due to nature of our our case Mr. Toutant would represent our organization. At our initial meeting Mr. Toutant gathered and presented information and facts concerning our case. He was extremely prepared with research into the laws/regulations concerning our issues. Presented was historical research, current research, advisement and relevant knowledge concerning the issue presented. We were given assignments for gathering information, and gaining support for our case. Upon leaving this meeting, we literally said "we have the right attorney." It is firmly believed that it is because of the dedication, insight, knowledge and presentation by Attorney Phillip Toutant, the resolve we sought was granted. The outcome of our case is a celebration to the employees, clients and community of which we depend and of which they depend on us.

Phil worked hard for me during a difficult and emotional child custody case on several issues - resulting in a win/win for both parties. Phil truly cares about his clients and his dedication shows. Phone calls? Emails? Texts? All answered in a timely manner. Most within a few hours if not immediately. Phil is like a pit bull. No stone will go unturned. He dives in and you can be confident that he has a thorough understanding of your case and is prepared. I would highly recommend Phil to anyone needing representation!
