“This law firm is amazing! I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone in need of a personal injury attorney. Everyone at the office is professional and treats you like a friend. You can tell they really care about the well being of their clients and getting the best outcome possible for your case is their priority. They also have great resources to amazing medical care! They really make the whole process a lot easier! It’s nice to know you have a reliable attorney in your corner!”
“I was in a car accident and I really appreciate the professionalism and concern for my injury from this firm. Sara Havens and Oliver both stayed in touch with me and fought for me, hard, until the very end. I never felt like I was being forced to settle, just for a quick buck. Sara wanted to make sure I would be able to physically fix my injuries, it wasn’t all about money. I strongly recommend this law firm and found them in Yelp and all the good reviews were true. I am very happy with my settlement. Thank you to Sara, Oliver and their staff.”
“I helped my girlfriend find an attorney after a bicycle accident. After much research we came across Phillips & Pelly. Mr. Pelly was very professional and his staff was friendly and welcoming. They were eager to answer all of our questions and very responsive to phone calls. The process was very smooth and the case was settled a lot faster than expected.”
“Oliver Pelly represented me in a vehicle accident which recently settled with an extremely satisfactory amount. I was very impressed with the professionalism everyone in his office exhibited, but more importantly, his friendliness and relaxed manner and ability to make me feel at ease with all the stresses that litigation bring. And, to my surprise, he was so accessible – something I never imagined working with such a busy attorney! He always replied to my calls and emails immediately – big plus in my book! I also appreciated his honesty about all the probabilities I may have encountered with my case, many times giving me worst and best case scenarios. Thank you Oliver!”
“I have known and worked with Oliver for over 8 years. He has never been anything but forthright, honest, efficient and fair in all of our dealings. I trust him 100% and have sent several friends to the firm as well. The office staff is beyond compare. They make you feel relaxed and less anxious about your case.”
“Five stars service with Oliver Pelly. Attentive, solution oriented and results driven. Our family was very well taken care of and this was our best experience to date. Yes we were successful and their professionalism throughout the journey left nothing to chance. Thank you Oliver!”
“Oliver’s unparalleled expertise makes him first choice for my family and friends.”
“I was hit by a truck as a pedestrian and worked with the law firm & have nothing but great things to say. Christine McCoy was my attorney and she was an amazing help. Met me close to my place in Point Loma for a consultation and was there the whole way with me until the final check. Always was there to answer my questions and concerns. I recommend them to anyone!”
“I wish I could give Phillips and Pelly 10 stars, especially attorney Christine McCoy. She works hard to settle your case and makes sure you are taken care of personally and professionally. Best of the best!!!”
“Christine McCoy is a wonderful attorney. She is very sharp, dedicated and sincerely cares about her client’s needs. She returns phone calls promptly and is truly a dedicated professional. I highly recommend her services.”
“I was hit by a drunk driver in December of 2015 and found Phillips and Pelly via Yelp! My lawyer Alecia Gordon was amazing and helped me win a settlement which took care of all my medical bills and pain and suffering. She was always in contact with me and explained everything as we went along. The firm made a terrible experience as positive as it could have been. I highly recommend using them for your legal needs.”
“I highly recommend Alecia Gordon at Phillips and Pelly. She truly helped my family after a bad car accident. She handled everything so that they could focus on getting better without any additional stress. Whenever we called the office, she was there to listen to us and address our concerns. I highly recommend calling her if you are ever injured in a car accident.”
“Alecia Gordon is a really great attorney! She was very empathetic and really listened to me. She cares a lot about her clients. If you had an injury and need some help – definitely go to Phillips and Pelly.”
“I just finished working with Oliver Pelly. Great guy to work with, good-natured, and easy to talk to. Highly recommended.”
“This is my first time getting help from a lawyer for a car accident. Oliver Pelly and his assistant Jessica have provided my family flawless experience by not only timely responses (most responses which I got within 12 hours) but also patient explanations (some of the legal situations and scenarios were not easy for us to understand). At the beginning I thought I could save some money and fight with the insurance company by myself, but that was wrong, they are trained to use tricks you don’t know…. I strongly suggest you to talk to Oliver Pelly. He will impress you (I talked 5 lawyers before talked to him). I cannot say enough about their great support. Thanks again”
