Unjustified DUI Charge

I was pulled over unjustly by a CHP officer in July of 2017 and charged with a DUI. I had never been in trouble with the law before and did not know who to turn to for help. I looked online and saw that Phillip was a lawyer that was willing to fight for his clients no matter the situation. I took a chance and hired him to represent me. My case was dragged out for nearly two years due to issues with the cop, and I felt like I did not want this process to go any further and felt like taking a plea deal to reduce my charges was the easy way out. Phillip assured me that we had a chance to win and we went to trial in May 2019; it was the most stressful, nerve wrecking experience I have ever been through. I am glad I took his advice because Phillip was amazing in the court room, proving the officer and the prosecutor wrong on everything, and after a three day trial I was found NOT GUILTY. He is sincere and personable and will be patient with you on any questions you have. I am a college graduate with a professional career and I am currently pursuing a masters degree; a DUI would've been detrimental to the advancement of my career, I am forever grateful that I had a caring and knowledgeable attorney at my side like Phillip.
