"I have had the both the pleasure and misfortune of having to utilize the services of Carlin Philips of Phillips Garcia Law. I say misfortune as I was dealt a very unfair blow with a former employer but I say pleasure because of my dealings with Carlin who did a fantastic job in not only getting me some compensation but also letting the former employer know that their unfair practices would have harsh consequences if they had to deal with an Attorney such as Carlin who has a vast wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to dealing with all matters of labor disputes.

Carlin is exceptional on being able to take apart a situation and put it into perspective as well as tearing it up from a rational sort of argumentative standpoint. These individuals are clear thinking. They are motivated and basically know how to think very linearly. Jeffrey G. Swift, D.C., D.A.B.C.N. Mattapoisett Chiropractic
