PHILLIPS PERSONAL INJURY.

WE ALWAYS PROTECT THE UNDERDOG. We are passionate about protecting our clients and you shouldn’t have to pay for the mistakes of others. We can help you determine if you have a case, deal with insurers to negotiate a settlement, and identify all possible defendants to help you recover FULL AND FAIR compensation for your injury.

Not all law firms are the same, especially Plaintiff trial firms, or more specifically, personal injury law firms. Unlike other lawyers on this site, Phillips Personal Injury is FOCUSED 100% to representing individuals and families who have been harmed by the acts of others. We NEVER represent insurance companies fighting claims from injured people. We only help those who need it most, because every person deserves quality injury representation when they have been wronged. We know personal injury law! We don't do criminal defense, landlord tenant or business law and we are committed to obtaining full and fair compensation for our clients.

And because we stay on the cutting edge of medicine, we have been able to build relationships with the best treatment providers and experts in California, who can connect the dots of a brain and back injury across different medical specialties, helping or clients achieve the best possible outcome in their case.

We know what we’re doing and we’re here to help. Contact us today (530) 265-0186 for a no charge confidential consultation.

Fees
  • Free Consultation
    I offer no-charge consultations and we can “meet” via video chat or Zoom. Not sure if you have a case? Are friends and family telling you to call a lawyer? Are you starting to be suspicious about the insurance adjuster you’re dealing with? Have questions? We are happy to talk with you about your situation and your concerns, and how we can help you though this challenging process. It’s easy — just give us a call.
  • Contingent Fees
    All personal injury matters are handled on a contingency fee basis (i.e. no out of pocket or upfront costs or charges to the client.) There are no fees unless we win. It's that simple. We’re in this together. When we do obtain a settlement, we are reimbursed an agreed-upon percentage of the settlement as our fee for attorney services and advanced costs are repaid. We also use a written fee agreement in all matters.
  • Rates, Retainers and Additional Information
    It doesn't cost a dime to talk to me, and I'm happy to answer your questions about your legal rights and options. Unlike many other law firms I don't charge interest on the case costs that I advance, and you only pay costs when the case settles. You don't have to pay expenses up-front as happens with many law firms. We also use a sliding scale on contingency matters starting lower than most large firms.

Q. I have court tomorrow my charges are pc 530.5 a and hs 11550 i also got 2 prison prior who can help me? I have 1000
A: Under California Penal Code Section 530.5 PC, identity theft is a "wobbler" which can be charged as either a felony or a misdemeanor, depending on the criminal history of the defendant, the extent of the loss caused by the crime, and other relevant factors. Health and Safety Code 11550 HS California's "using and/or being under the influence of a controlled substance" law is a misdemeanor. If you are convicted of this charge, you face: up to five years of informal probation, up to one year in county jail, drug counseling, and possible community service. Your question doesn't state if you are charged with a misdemeanor 530.5 or felony. Drug rehabilitation under Prop 36 or Penal Code 1000 is usually the best option to avoid any jail time for being under the influence. However, you will be disqualified if you are convicted of any other felony. In any a event, I suspect you're going to have great difficulty finding a private attorney to represent you with limited financial resources. But not to worry. When you go to court you can simply tell the judge that you were unable to hire a private attorney, they will have you fill out a financial declaration, and if you qualify, will appoint either the public defender or a court appointed lawyer. Some of the best lawyers I know are public defenders, so don't believe the stories you hear. They're trained and licensed just like private lawyers and are extremely dedicated to their clients. I wish you the best outcome in your case. ... Read More
