- Another Million Dollar Verdict Secured for Client
Phillips Law Group would like to congratulate Timothy Tonkin, supervising lawyer, on winning another million dollar settlement on behalf of an injured client.
A police officer hired the firm after he was injured following a routine stop of a school bus. As he was exiting the bus at the end of the check, the bus driver closed the door on the officer, causing him to fall out of the bus. The fall from the bus to the ground, caused significant injuries, including traumatic brain injury and injuries to his neck and back.
Ledbetter Law Firm defended the case through the use of a number of scorched earth tactics, fiercely fighting liability and causation. The defendants claimed that the plaintiff had many pre-existing injuries and utilized typical defenses of malingering and secondary gain.
Despite these difficult tactics and several failed attempts at mediation, the Phillips Law Group team prevailed in securing a trial in front of Judge Paupore in Camp Verde. After hearing arguments for both sides, the jury for the case quickly returned a verdict of one million dollars for the injured officer.
The roller-coaster of a case led our team through a number of difficult challenges. They faced hard facts, a complex medical history, a conservative jurisdiction, an aggressive defense and difficulties in mediation.
This case is a testament to the dedication and drive that our team of personal injury lawyers dedicates to each and every case we take on. We are pleased with the fact that we were able to secure financial compensation to help our client cover medical expenses and other incurred costs resulting from his injuries.

My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.
Jasmine helped me so so much I want to thank her ! And also Aaron , i was always scared after an accident , knowing I would have to deal with lawyers but not here . Luckily I’ve only been in 3 accidents but this time it was fast and easy . And i received all the treatments I needed to help me recover ! Thank you Jasmine and Aaron!
Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
