Knowledgeable, Kind and Professional Attorney
My husband and I decided to revise our Wills. We were told by a friend that Mr. Phoenix could provide us with the services we needed. My friend had used Mr. Phoenix for her Chapter 13 bankruptcy attorney and was extremely satisfied. The day we scheduled a meeting for signing the papers my husband was feeling poorly. We didn't want to reschedule the meeting, but I didn't think there was any other option. To my surprise the Phoenix team came to us! I can't tell you how grateful we were for that act of kindness. We breathed a sigh of relief that day. The paperwork was in perfect order and everything was completed within a week from the time we sat down and discussed the contents of our documents. Mr. Phoenix and his team are genuinely kind, knowledgeable and professional. It is without hesitation that I recommend Mr. Phoenix and his team!

Exceptional Attorney
Over the past 13 years I've had nothing but good experiences with Mr. Phoenix involving several different areas of law in which he represented me in. He is very knowledgeable and I would recommend him to anyone.

Great attorney, very knowledgeable
I used this firm several years ago to file my chapter 13 bankruptcy. Charles Phoenix was very knowledgeable and kept me informed of the status of my bankruptcy throughout the entire process. After making my bankruptcy plan payments, my case was closed and my credit report is now cleaned up. I went back to this firm recently to have them prepare my will and estate planning documents. The communication was excellent and the papers were ready for me to sign within a week. I would definitely recommend Mr. Phoenix and his firm to anybody looking for a good attorney.

too busy to care
Was advised by this attorney to file a Chapter 13 and followed his advice and instructions. He seemed to have no time for my calls after collecting his fees. Learned later he filed the chapter 13 for me but due to some "glitch" had to re-file after I had been paying on the payment plan for 2 years. Needless to say the re-file cost me an additional 2 years of derogatory postings to my credit report and Has caused undue hardship in getting credit again. Was told his law firm had "imploded" several years ago and would not recommend anyone use his service.

Waste of $5,000 without a single bill
I initially went to this law firm and gave a $5,000 retainer based on a legal strategy I had agreed upon with the attorney I met. I had not heard from them again for three months until I went back to the office to find that attorney had moved on and they weren't aware I was their client. I never received a single bill nor piece of work product but have been informed my retainer has been spent. I have found a good attorney but I strongly urge this one never be retained. Seven months as their client and not a single bill. Also, they withheld my documentation for several months despite repeated requests.
