Client Comments

"Carter Phillips is my all-time favorite lawyer for any matter!"

"Carter Phillips has handled two significant cases for us, including one before the U.S. Supreme Court. Much has been written and said about his legendary appellate work. It's all true. He is a brilliant lawyer with the best oratory skills I've seen. He is the go-to lawyer for bet-the-company cases."

-Timothy Feagans
Senior Vice President and General Counsel
Saint-Gobain Corporation

"Carter Phillips is deeply experienced and sees across appellate issues to the big result."

"Carter Phillips is an extraordinary lawyer with impeccable people skills. He is always "top of mind" when selecting counsel."

"Carter Phillips is without equal in his experience and familiarity with the U.S. Supreme Court. I cannot imagine asking any other attorney to represent my company in that Court. Even with his superb reputation, Carter is extremely pleasant and easy to work with and a true gentleman."
