  • Bryan Thompson

    I've known Phillip Lee for a number of years and have always found him both professional and on top of his game. He truly cares about his clients and does whatever is necessary to ensure that they are given quality representation, including being informed during all steps of the litigation process. I've recommended him in the past, and will continue to do so.
