Highly recommend Phillip Duncan for personal injury case
I had a car accident case and got a lot of lawyer letters. I decided to do my research on which lawyer in Arkansas would go to court for me to get the best result. I called Phillip Duncan at Duncan Firm and met with Mr. Duncan and his entire staff. My case was tricky because the insurance company lawyers were fighting liability and trying to blame me for the wreck. Phillip retained the best experts in the field from what I can tell to show why I was not at fault. While we did not end up having to go to court, he spent a lot of time to get a great settlement for me and probably got twice as much as any other lawyer would. I am super pleased with what he was able to do and take a very difficult situation and guide me to a great result. I was scared of lawyers and the legal system and his staff was professional and really responsive to all my questions. Plus Phillip is a good Christian man and that was important me.

Phillip Duncan is a hypocrite that used to be able to hide behind Religion. That shtick doesn't work anymore. Mr. Duncan needs to remember, he is supposed to follow God's laws, not think he is God himself! He's a very judgmental person with crude thoughts and remarks about young women!

Endorse Phillip
Brain injury Attorney | Nov 05
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I gladly endorse this lawyer. Phillip Duncan is my hero, not for the multi-million dollar cases he and his team handle for me and my clients, but the sincerity that truly shows thru him each and every time we meet with the client. He handles each case that I refer to him like a true gentleman and scholar. He is an incredible individual unlike any other person i have met. He puts together teams of experts that specialize in very very particular areas of the law. He has an extremely VAST knowledge regarding the experts needed. I wish they made more PHILLIP DUNCANS. But, unfortunately, there is just one. Sincerely, Danny J Cook"
Trucking accident Attorney | Nov 04
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have personally witnessed Phillip Duncan take a hard case and get great results even with disputed liability. Having worked along side Phillip for 15 years off and on, I know he is doing something right when defense lawyers refer him cases they cannot handle. And when a doctor gets hurt, they call Phillip. If you're a lawyer and have a big truck accident case, he knows how to get the maximum recovery, putting together the best experts and medical care team for the client that builds the case for trial if necessary."
