We all know life takes turns and twists and sometimes life suddenly presents a challenge. Getting through those times requires strength - lots of strength.

The Phillips Law Offices can be counted on to support you through life's legal challenges. Our mission is simple: To help guide you through the confusing, complex and oftentimes overwhelming criminal justice system.
Before becoming an attorney, Michael Phillips was an experienced and accomplished mountaineer. To achieve a positive outcome, he knows the importance of planning, teamwork and trust. Now, he uses those same skills to help clients navigate "legal hazards" and achieve their goals. With over 25 years of courtroom experience, Mr. Phillips has been winning jury trials, obtaining pretrial dismissals and successfully resolving difficult DUI and criminal matters.
While always trying to obtain the best result possible, we never lose sight of the importance of guiding clients through the process with compassion and respect, providing exceptional service and communication, bringing unparalleled focus to each case. “Let Us Guide You On Your Legal Journey”
What We Do
If you have been arrested and charged for driving under the influence - you need someone who will take the time to make sure you understand the process and the options you have just as much as you need someone who will vigorously fight to defend your rights. Some law firms may brag about the occasional good result. Some may even use pictures of "flashing lights and handcuffs" to worry potential clients. Our approach is different. It is client centered. This means the focus is not on the lawyer but on you. It means prioritizing your goals and objectives, factoring in legal and non-legal issues, making you the center in the decision-making process. Being client centered empowers the client as the decision-maker. Teamwork and communication is fundamental.
Getting to know our clients is not just incidental to practicing law - it is absolutely essential. People accused of driving under the influence need someone to fully investigate their case and to present their defense with passion and determination. Every case is unique, and they they need someone to tell their story.
Justice is more than a result. It is an experience that goes much deeper, one that can change your life either for the better or for the worse. The DUI defense attorney you choose will play an important role in determining which type of experience you have.
We are not a “DUI Mill”, charging cheap fees upfront, looking for a high volume of cases, where a quick guilty plea is the name of the game to turn a profit. As a famous judge once said, “There is nothing more expensive than a cheap lawyer”. We start by preparing each case as if it is going to trial - not a guilty plea. That may mean we spend more time working for our clients then other firms, but we have found it is always better to negotiate from a position of strength.
Mr. Phillips has over 25 years defending the most serious types of DUI matters and is available for private and confidential consultation.
