EXCELLENT attorney
I would highly recommend John Phebus to anyone looking for a criminal attorney. John came highly recommended and once I looked at other reviews stating his success record and professionalism, I knew we found our guy. This was a long process and throughout it all, John treated our family with respect and was very patient. I had the utmost confidence in his work and recommendations. In the end, our case ended just how we wished it to go, and that is because of John and his hard work.

A very professional firm. Stepped right up with invaluable help, made the rest of the process so easy. The paralegal (Holly) was there to help at all times as well. Highly recommend!

Superb Lawyer
My experience with Mr. Phebus was fantastic. He was able to answer any and all questions that I had in a timely manor. He showed a genuine interest in my case, and made sure he was well read in any statutes relating to my case. Picking a lawyer can be a difficult process because each one promises everything short of a garunteed victory. I firmly believe Mr. Phebus will stand behind his word, and give the best possible service and guidance that Phoenix has to offer.

John Phebus--A++ Lawyer!
Where do I begin? From the initial consultation, John was the consummate professional--extremely knowledgeable, conscientious, thorough, kind, compassionate, clear, concise and reassuring. I immediately felt that I had chosen the perfect attorney to take my case. He kept me informed from day one, returned my calls promptly and allayed any fears I had regarding this terrifying experience. My case was reduced from a DUI to a reckless driving charge. It is the best possible outcome I could have wished for! I cannot imagine going through this life altering experience without him! He made all the difference in the successful resolution of my case and I would not hesitate to recommend him or hire him again should I ever need a lawyer! Great job, John! Thank you!

John is a brilliant lawyer!
Recently John was able with his exceptional expertise in criminal law to negotiate my DUI down to a simple "driving too slow on the 101 freeway!" I am rating him as a 10 plus on a scale of 1 to 10. I was impressed by his high intelligence, the kind way he treated me through the whole legal process, and best of all the success of the verdict.

Mr. John Phebus ... where do I even begin? I've known John prior to allowing him to handle my case. He is such a hoot and holler but in the courtroom ... Oh buddy, he is the definition of 'Serious'! Quick, responsive and not afraid to dig into the opposition's tailend to prove the FACTS. I would definitely hire him again (hopefully won't need/have to). Thanks again John

Hired for DUI - NO REGRETS
I had never been in trouble with the law before so from the start I was terrified and pretty much lost. After looking at reviews for DUI lawyers I decided to go with John Phebus. After our first call I felt confident and well informed about what was going on. Any questions I had through out the process he answered ASAP. If something came up I was contacted very quickly as well. He analyzed every aspect of my case and was able to drop my DUI charge. I would definitely recommend to others.

Caring, trustworthy, ethical, and knowledgable lawyer
John Phebus offered me a free consultation despite my financial situation. He made time in his busy schedule to set up an in person appointment on very short notice within 24 hours. He helped give me confidence, strategy, and answered any questions I had in regards to my minor criminal case and arraignment the next business day. My impression of John is that he is very transparent, fair, ethical, and trustworthy. He is very knowledgable and cares a lot about his clients. Eventually my case, was partially dismissed and diverted, which was the best case scenario that John said I should fight for. I did not need his services after arraignment, but if I did, he was willing to offer a flexible payment plan. If I need a lawyer ever in the future, I will definitely use John Phebus. He's not just after your money like the other lawyers are. John's services are of very good value.

Stellar DUI Attorney
John is a great attorney that helped me with a defense case. He got my accusation set aside and I am very lucky to have had him working for me. He is knowledgeable, well respected in his field, and a true asset to the community.

Best DUI lawyer ever!
John is a great person to have on your side when dealing with the confusing laws and harsh penalties in a DUI case. He covered every detail of my case from questioning the officer to having independent tests done to taking photographs of where I was pulled over. In the end my charges were reduced thanks to his hard work. Through it all he clearly explained to me what he was doing and what I needed to do (which was very little) to ensure the best outcome. Well worth the money!
