“My serious accident was devastating and I didn’t know where to turn for help. After another lawyer referred me to you, you guided me through the process to a great result, much better than I expected. You were always there for me… You always made me feel like I was your only client.”*

Deborah Morton
Frederick, Maryland



“Before I hired you, the insurance company told me that it would only cost me money if I hired a lawyer. They said that they wouldn’t offer any more to settle my case and that I would have to divide what they offered with a lawyer if I hired one. Boy, were they wrong. I ended up getting much more than they had offered me, even after paying legal fees. My only regret is that I did not hire you sooner . . . Your client service was excellent. You were easy to reach. If you weren’t available when I called, you always returned my call promptly. You always took time to explain things — in layman’s terms, using examples that I could understand.”*

You were always there for us, no matter what. You did a phenomenal job! We will be forever thankful!*

“… I appreciated the personal service that you gave me in my serious personal injury case. I never had to guess about what was going on. You reported to me regularly and always sent me copies of things that were sent or received concerning my case. And when I did have a question, I could always get in touch with you… “*

“Before contacting [Phil], we had talked to other lawyers about our case and became disillusioned with our situation… One lawyer said we should accept whatever the insurance adjuster offered without further ado and another said we had a very poor chance of getting what we thought would be a fair settlement. …we felt that surely there must be someone who understood how we felt and could help us. Phil proved to be that someone and much more. With his concern and understanding, keen insight and experience, we came away with what we feel was a fair settlement and felt much better about the whole incident.”*
