Helping Young Adults at a Crossroads Find The Right Path

Facing a First-Time Offense?

Let's Work Towards The Right Path

I am a criminal defense lawyer by trade, but my end goal is more than just a dismissal of the charges or a "not-guilty" verdict. I work towards the rehabilitation of young lives of people who have found themselves in the difficult position of having been charged with a crime.


With You Every Step of the Way

Our primary goal is to get you the best possible outcome - and we work hard every step of the way to ensure that happens. As a client of Phyllis Law can count on top-rated representation and guidance from our whole team. You will not get lost in the shuffle or ever be left ever wonder what’s next.

Stay Ahead

You will never be left wondering what’s next. We will send you text reminders of your court dates and hearing times as well as monthly status reports via email. You will also receive a monthly call from an expert representative assigned to your file.

Stay Alert

We will look for every opportunity to improve your outcome. That includes an in-depth review of the client’s driver & criminal history by an attorney to identify errors and/or arrests that could be restricted or otherwise amended. (For someone facing a 2nd or 3rd offense this can make a massive impact on sentencing)

Stay In-Touch

The first Friday of every month, Phyllis Law holds Open Office Hours, in which clients can attend a zoom session with an attorney without scheduling an appointment. This resource is offered in addition to scheduled appointments with your attorney.

Listening To You

Sometimes people are just caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, and there are also times when people make mistakes and need help correcting them.  My approach is to try to understand the whole person; not just the crime they were charged with.  I believe that by truly working to understand and rehabilitate the individual I can do two things:


  1. Help the judge and the prosecutor see them as a person and not a criminal, likely securing a better outcome
  2. Genuinely help the accused find their path towards a better future
