- Two People Killed in Scottsdale Pedestrian Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
Taking a walk on a sidewalk on a Sunday morning is something that millions of people across the United States do on a regular basis. When people take part in this activity, few if any consider the fact that every vehicle that passes by must follow relevant traffic laws in order to avoid a serious problem. Tragically, something went terribly wrong on Sunday when two people who were walking on a sidewalk were hit and killed in a Scottsdale pedestrian accident that is still being investigated by the police.
According to the authorities, this fatal Scottsdale pedestrian accident occurred on Sunday at approximately 10 a.m. when a 51-year-old male and his 50-year-old wife, both residents of Alaska and in town for a church retreat, were walking in a southbound direction on Scottsdale Road just north of Jackrabbit Road. Just then the driver of a GMC SUV lost control of the vehicle, ran up onto the sidewalk and crashed into the couple. They were both killed at the scene, and police at this point have ruled out drugs or alcohol as factors in the crash.

He explained everything in great detail and had a great sense or humor . He really knows how to bring light To tough , unfortunate situations - I would absolutely recommend them at anyone -
Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
Phillips Law Group is a company that has taught me so many things. Here your work, your dedication, effort and discipline are valued, in addition to the fact that, as a woman, as an immigrant and as a human being, I have been given value and empowerment. We are a successful law firm because all workers feel part of a great family. I am very proud and honored to work at Phillips Law Group.
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.

Sophia H. at Phillips Law Group has been an absolute joy to work with -quick, responsive, and professional in every interaction. Her breadth of knowledge, from administration to IT to finance, is nothing short of impressive.
Liz Gonzales was great!!!!
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
