I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
PLG is the best! Highly recommend. Love that they do so much to help the community.
