John Phillips is an excellent lawyer. I have been associated with him from the time he was a law clerk here in this courthouse and watched him build his sports law practice. He is an ethical, outstanding lawyer.

John handled an automobile accident claim for me for a back injury. He was nice and even did a free living will at the end. His staff was great handling my case. Great lawyer.

I am just gonna say it was my fiance that led me to John and besides her it was the best decision I ever made. He really does work for you. Even if he is busy which he is, he ALWAYS finds a way to get back to you. He is NEVER too busy. Thank you John and Mary as well for being there for us and helping us through our tough times I wish I never had the experience I did but I am happy that I got to meet you through all of it so THANK YOU.

John gave my problem personal attention, and made me feel important. Having a lawyer's cell number and John's ear gives a level of comfort that is hard to explain.
