I found Phil via a cold search on Google. A divorce was in my future. I had never hired an attorney.
I ran across another guy who was well reviewed and who I thought sounded bright. He was full up. I asked him for a recommendation. He said: "I worked with this one attorney on a complex family law case and he was extremely creative and effective...Phil Shucklin."
I liked that description. Phil was available and invited me in for a consult that afternoon. I found Phil to indeed be creative and effective and a-lot more.
Straightway, he listened to my case and my objectives, and I can't stress this enough, he immediately made me comfortable that this daunting process was manageable, that he could pull it off, and that things would be okay.
Fast forward to the end. My divorce was managed professionally, strategically, economically, and quickly. I met Phil in March. The divorce was final in November.
I went into the case concerned that I wouldn't get a fair shake. Phil was able to frame things in a way that I feel like I did. He was tough when we needed to be tough. He showed a great sense of managing the various people involved. This may sound odd, but he showed a very good feel for the case.
Phil was always available. Phone call access to him personally was never a problem. Emails were always responded to promptly. Phil showed a great sense for managing my investment in the case...putting good time in when necessary. Exercising restraint when not.
I truly don't feel like a dime or an hour was wasted. I was never mired in minutiae. Conversations with Phil were always at a conceptual and a strategic level. He and his staff took those strategies and concepts and managed all the tactics behind the scenes.
The fun part was this. Phil always took extra time off the books to talk with me about my life status, my kids, his family, his kids, the Seahawks...I really cannot recommend the guy favorably enough.
I've already recommended Phil to a number of my friends.
For a family law matter, at this point, I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Phil took my case even though it was such short notice he did. He always kept me informed of what our next steps were at what options we had. Also he was always there to listen to my questions and concerns. I would highly suggest using Phil in any of your family court issues!

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I endorse this lawyer. Phil is experienced, skilled and pragmatic in his representation. Although he is a zealous advocate, he has a clear head and does not inflame passions and destroy relationships, like some of his colleagues. He is a good man who can make the divorce process bearable, easy to understand and a bit more humane.
