Why do I need a
lawyer?

PHEIL LAW FIRM will protect your rights and pursue legal
avenues you may not be aware of. Attempting to negotiate with the legal
representatives of insurance companies, businesses and corporations will usually
result in lowball settlement offers. Our experienced staff will make certain
that you receive the compensation you deserve and maximize your
recovery.

What are the
advantages of working with a smaller law firm?

Pheil Law Firm
offers personalized service and customized counsel not available from a larger
firm. We serve a small number of clients, which means that we are better able to
offer you the service that you deserve and give you 100% of our attention. Our
clients work one-on-one with knowledgeable attorneys, who provide comprehensive
guidance backed by years of practical experience.

legal need at all?

Feel free to call or email our office, and we will assist you in determining whether or not your claim is viable. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been the victim of personal injury, business dispute, bankruptcy or have real estate law issues. We can provide you with a consultation to help you determine the best course of action in your situation, no matter how big or small it might be.

What is a Virtual Law Office
(VLO)?

The Pheil Law Firm’s Virtual Law Office (VLO)
provides a secure online environment that is available to clients 24 hours a
day, 7 days a week. The VLO includes secure areas for attorney-client
communications, completion of online forms, and secure sharing of confidential
documents, files and account information. As part of Pheil Law Firms’ mission to
increase access to the legal profession, the VLO allows us to provide service to
clients in the entire State of California or persons/businesses with California

Rather than taking time out of your busy day to visit our
office, all you need to do to receive legal counsel is register
for a personalized account with our virtual law office software. Once
registered, you’ll be able to communicate with us about the nature of your legal
services, review documents which have been prepared for you, and pay your bill
all from the convenience of your own home.
