About Bradley

Learn Bradley’s areas of practice.

In 10 years, I've handled over 800 cases throughout Louisiana.  Whether it's a car accident, murder or traffic ticket, I dedicate the same level of attention to any case that comes across my desk. We want to make sure you're comfortable choosing an attorney. That's why we offer free consultations and encourage potential clients to talk to several attorneys before hiring one. That's right. No pressure consultations.  Our #1 goal is for our clients to feel comfortable and confident with their attorney.

I have the privilege of working with my wife and law partner, Sarah Phillips.  Together, we founded Phillips Law in 2009 focusing on criminal defense and personal injury.  In addition to our private practice, I'm a staff attorney for Eden House, a shelter for women who are vicitms of the sex trafficing industry.

In my spare time I volunteer as a mentor for the Son of a Saint, an organization dedicated to helping boys who've lost their fathers to death or incarceration.

Timely & Efficient
Mr. Phillips responded to our inquiry in a very timely manner. The ability to pay fees and see correspondence/documents on the secure site was easy to maneuver and a great way to communicate. Our case was handled to our satisfaction and we will use his firm for any future legal needs in New Orleans. Highly recommend.

Set it and forget it
I hired Bradley about 3 months ago. I am a very busy guy, and I don't have a lot of time to deal with nonsense. Bradley handled everything for me and he got my fine greatly reduced. The only thing I had to do is call him, and answer a couple emails. He is very professional and knows New Orleans very well. I am definitely calling him about all of my future issues.

Traffic Court Representation
I have had limited contact with lawyers in the past. Other than to handle my parent's succession, and the services of a real estate lawyer, the opportunity to hire a lawyer has not presented itself. Recently, the need arose to hire an attorney to represent me in traffic court, to contest a traffic ticket. I placed a call to Bradley Scott Philips with Phillips Law, LLC. Mr. Phillips immediately returned my call, and after discussing the particulars of the case, what I could expect as the process proceeded, and the most likely outcomes, I hired Mr. Phillips on the spot. I like to think that I am an expert in my field, and I like to associate with others who are experts in their fields. During our first consultation, I came to the conclusion that Mr. Phillips certainly knew what he was talking about, and I could trust my case in his hands. Mr. Phillips demonstrated the utmost professionalism and technical knowledge throughout the process. He was polite and returned all my calls on a timely basis to address any concerns that I my have brought up. His fee was extremely reasonable for the amount of work he performed, and the final result was better than the best alternative I had imagined. I highly recommend Mr. Phillips to anyone who has need of a criminal defense or personal injury lawyer. If the opportunity ever arises, I would not hesitate to hire Mr. Phillips for any future matters that require a lawyer.

Retain Him!!
I found Mr. Phillips on google search and decided to do my consultation with him. He was retained the same day because not only was he professional and knowledgeable about my type of case, but he showed empathy. I’m pleased to say that my criminal case ended in my favor!

When things got complicated, he saved the day
I was in a car accident which totaled my car because I was hit by a speeding driver from behind in December of 2014. I wanted to go to court to contest the ticket I received for "improper lane usage" because I wasn't at fault and didn't want that on my record, however I was moving within a month to Minneapolis for a job I'd accepted. I panicked because I couldn't go to traffic court in Jefferson Parish and didn't know how to handle the situation. Sarah and Bradley were my heroes; they took the case to find justice in a challenging set of events. The other party (driver/insurance) was being extremely uncooperative in settling any dispute, but Bradley didn't back down and 2 YEARS later, we've finally reached an agreement then closed the case. I don't know what I would've done without him; I was updated with calls and emails, everything was very user-friendly on their mycase website, and the genuine care that was shown throughout the process was unwaivering. If you seek honesty, personalized focus, ceaseless patience, and sincerity at each step of your legal experience, I highly recommend you at least consult with Phillips Law, LLC. Not only are they well-versed in law, professional with clients, and exceptional in communication skills, they also are wonderful people outside of their careers as I got to find out via discovering our mutual love of dogs (specifically rescues and Golden Retrievers). When you become their client, you will be grateful to find as much peace as they were able to bring me, an overwhelmed and uncertain person with an atypical dilemma.

Bradley was extremely professional, and helpful throughout the case. He provided updates along the way and was quick to accept my case. Case was dismissed and I was refunded bond money. Highly recommend Bradley for any legal consultation you may need.

"Bradley is a wonderful criminal defense attorney. I have the privilege of working with him on a daily basis and can't imagine working beside anyone else. He is very smart and personable. Whenever there is a legal issue that I have a question on he is the first person I call. He knows the criminal code, rules of evidence and civil procedure very well. He is constantly reviewing recent legislation and the news to keep up to date with any changing laws or court case decisions. Most importantly, he really takes the time to make sure his clients are informed and know their rights through every step of the way for their criminal case. He gives out his cell phone number to the families to make sure they stay connected as well, in case the client is still in jail pending the outcome of the case.
