Myers Divorce Case
Excellent attorney. Michael did a great job representing me when my ex wife sued me for my retirement. Although we lost, Michael did everything right. He presented my side of the issue in a very professional way and I felt that he was a better lawyer than my ex wife's lawyer. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing legal representation.

Professional and Knowledgable
Mr. Phillips handled my case in a professional manner and was always very knowledgable of the issues at hand. I was always informed of all aspects of the case and never felt neglected. I would recommend Moffitt and Phillips to anyone.

Review for Services Provided
Michael and his team were there for us every step of the way with phone calls and emails to keep us up-to-date on every contact they had with the state or providing information for us so we could try our best to understand the proceedings. Eminent Domain is difficult at best but we believe, based on his knowledge and understanding of the case - as well as the outcome - he represented us well.

Great Attorney!
I felt like I was speaking with a friend when I worked with Mr. Phillips! He didn't just give me one option, yet told me many, then gave his advice. I felt he was very trustworthy, helpful, and understanding. Great experience!

Michael Phillips Review
In September my daughter and I were involved in a motor vehicle accident. After the accident we sought treatment for the head, neck, and shoulder injuries we sustained as a result of the collision. I found myself dealing with the insurance company of the party whom was responsible for the wreck. At first this seemed to go fine and it looked as if all of our medical bills would be taken care of without needing to involve an attorney. Then the insurance company stopped communicating with us and there we were, stuck with outstanding medical bills. I realized I needed at least some advice from an attorney so I decided to call Michael Phillips. Over the course of our conversation, I realized that I needed more than just his advice, I really needed his help. He understood how things worked in these cases in a way that I did not. In the end, my husband and I decided that hiring Michael was the best possible choice. This choice took the stress off of us. Michael did everything we didn't know how to and the results were much better than if we had continued trying to resolve matters on our own. We couldn't be happier that we hired him! He is efficient, experienced, knowledgeable, and he was able to explain things in a way that my husband and I could understand. It did not matter that his practice was in Central Arkansas and we were 2 hours away in Northeast Arkansas. Michael was able to serve us and do everything a Northeast Arkansas Attorney could do. My husband and I wholeheartedly recommend Michael! Our experience with him as our attorney has been great.

Very satisfied would definitely recommend!
I was in a bad motor vehicle accident, broke my ankle and totalled my car. I originally went with an attorney that attended my church. Long story short, about a year and a half after I hired him he lost his license. A family friend recommended me to Michael Phillips. He exceeded my expectations and there was a huge difference in the communication I received from him and my previous attorney. He was very knowledgeable and was happy to answer my many questions. He always kept me informed and sent me copies of everything sent and received. Needless to say, I was very satisfied with the service and professionalism Michael had to offer. I was also very satisfied with the ending settlement. I would recommend Michael to anyone and I hope to never be in another accident again but if I am, I would go straight to Michael without thinking twice.
