Attorney Profile

Michael S. Phillips is a highly regarded criminal defense attorney at The Law Offices of Todd Landgren. Based in Irvine, California, he focuses his practice on the representation of people throughout Orange County who have been charged with the commission of felonies or misdemeanors related to allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Mr. Phillips has been a member in good standing of The State Bar of California since 2008, and he is accordingly admitted to practice before all California state courts.

Mr. Phillips takes the time to research each client's individual situation and then proceeds to construct a strategy to counter the state's allegations. In some cases, a challenge can be made to the initial traffic stop itself on the basis that the law enforcement officer did not have the requisite reasonable suspicion that a crime was being committed. In other cases, Mr. Phillips has argued that the field sobriety tests were improperly conducted, and he has questioned the administration of breath tests, including demonstrating that the Breathalyzer or similar device was improperly calibrated.

Mr. Phillips has been able to obtain successful outcomes for many of his clients, whether in the courtroom through dismissals or acquittals, or as a result of the negotiation of favorable plea agreements with the prosecutor. His colleagues have taken note of his track record and have awarded him a 10.0 "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo. In addition, Mr. Phillip’s name has been included to both The National Trial Lawyers: Top 40 under 40 and The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100 lists. The recipient of a Juris Doctor from Whittier Law School, he worked for the Office of the District Attorney in Santa Ana before entering private practice.
