There are still some honest lawyers out there
I, like many have been thrown under the bus by unethical criminals (oops I mean lawyers in Sacramento). They don't come more honest than Chris. He has a low stressed attitude, but he's a deep thinker and fights for his clients. If you meet with him and you don't have a case, he will tell you right away, instead of taking your money and a year later you hear that you have no case. I've referred him to SEVERAL family members and co-workers. Their decision was unanimous - - this guys knows his stuff. Plus, he has a beautiful family.

Failure to fullfil obligations
This person has failed to complete the work he has contracted to do, did not give a reason as to why he would not complete the job or extend an apology. He has failed to return my phone calls or emails for over 3 months. Christopher Philips lacks professional and personal integrity and is not to be trusted.
Response from Christopher Phillips March 4, 2013
I am sorry that I was unable to assist you in your issues. However, no attorney/client agreement was ever entered into and no money ever changed hands. Of course, I will not go into details but the 'potential client' leaving this remark was not harmed in any way. I wish you the best of luck in the future.
