Testimonials

When I filed my case With Bill Phillips I was in an emotionally rocky place. I had been wrongfully terminated and had just come from a very abusive work environment. So dare I say I had been living as a victim for awhile and had a victim mentality. That said defending myself felt very unfamiliar, uncomfortable and embarrassing. I felt embarrassed to admit to myself and to the world that I had tolerated such a bad work environment. Bill was all at once compassionate, firm , honest and one hell of a lawyer. I felt very well represented and my case was settled in exactly the way I wanted it to be. Thank You Bill!

Bill is very professional, polite and make me feel comfortable and secured.

I would highly recommend retaining Bill Phillips as your attorney. He is the best attorney I have ever worked with. I came to meet with Bill Phillips over a sexual harassment case and even when some things felt a little uncomfortable to talk about he was understanding and made me feel very comfortable communicating with him. Even though he had other clients I was never neglected and always felt like I was a priority. He settled my case in a speedy manner and always kept me in the loop with everything that was going on. Anytime I had a question he was more then happy to answer it and always returned my phone calls in a timely matter. If you're looking for the best attorney look no further.

I'd recommend Bill Philips in a heart-beat. He is a straight shooter. Never once was I left in the dark. Not even for one moment did I feel like being smothered by double-talk. He tells it like it is and he delivers. He brings justice to the surface and leaves no stone unturned. That's the story.

Compassionate, ethical, and extremely competent! I'm happy he was on my side!

Very highly recommendable +++++ I have dealt with attorneys in the past but never met anyone like William Phillips Esq. Before I met him, I did not trust any lawyers at all. Bill has changed me into believing, trusting and confining in him. He is outstanding in all areas of his knowledgeable experience and shows great understanding and care for his client. I thank God for choosing him and may he showers him with grace and many blessing.
