From the first time I spoke with Chris and Dana (which was back in 2011) all the way up to my settlement today , they have been tenacious and considerate, even when I was admittedly not the ideal client. I hired Jackel and Phillips to represent my 5 year old son who was seriously injured in a horrible and freak accident. These attorneys were very persistent and organized! They refused to accept the "run around" from ANYONE! I trust them %100. They informed me about EVERYTHING, even if I did not ask. Both Dana and Chris were very easy to contact. On the rare occasion that I had to leave him a message, they would return my call the same day. As far as the case goes, I am more than pleased. They got my son WAY more than I ever thought possible and structured the settlement for maximum returns in the future. They handled everything with genuine care and concern. The whole team at Jackel and Phillips is absolutely THE BEST there is!!!...
Chris Phillips represented me for my car accident. I interviewed multiple attorneys at other firms near Marietta before choosing Mr. Phillips. I liked that he could quickly grasp what was going on, and he was very straight-forward and realistic when we discussed my case. Additonally, their firm employs a nurse consultant to inform everyone's understanding of the medical issues and Mr. Phillips cared a lot about all the technical details. He was always extremely communicative and very helpful whenever I emailed or called to ask him one million questions about every little detail and possibility for my case. I found him to be a very careful and diligent attorney. He did not pressure me to make certain decisions that would have been convenient for him, but instead made sure that I fully understood my legal situation so that we could proceed in a way that made the most sense for me. I am very glad to have had Mr. Phillips' excellent legal advice and support through the time of my car accident, which was a very overwhelming and scary time for me. I think Chris did a great job representing me and dealing with the insurance companies to help me get a fair settlement. I can highly recommend his services, and in fact have already recommended him to a friend of mine. The other staff in their office are very professional and lovely people too! It was never a hassle to get in touch with them when I needed to and they were as helpful as could be.
From the moment I walked into the office at Jackel & Phillips, I knew I was in the right place. I received a warm welcome from a very friendly and considerate staff. They took the pressure right off my shoulders. They worked very hard on my case which was resolved in a timely manner. Communication was excellent and my questions and concerns were addressed immediately. If you are looking for a Personal Injury Lawyer, you are in good hands at Jackel & Phillips. Thank you all from myself and my family!
