    Im an attorney who referred my father to Chris Phillips after he was injured in a car wreck. Chris has an excellent reputation for handling PI claims and he lived up to that reputation in handling of my fathers case. I was very much involved with the case, so I can say without hesitation that Chris did a superb job. He was compassionate about my fathers injuries and needs, aggressive with obtaining evidence, and savvy in negotiating a settlement with the insurance company after filing suit. Read less
