I recently purchased and viewed your DVD on the anatomy of a dog bite case. I greatly appreciated your insight and I'm sure it will pay dividends as I pursue my client's claims.

Your valuable information on Dog Bite Law and our private conversations inspired a governing authority and protected the career of a bright young public servant. Your hard work was properly sited and credited at the end of my speech. IPBO Local 702 owes you a debt of gratitude.

Sincerely in your debt,

Kenneth, thanks for all of the work you do..we just received your book on when dogs bite or kill other dogs and it is helping us with our case. I encourage anyone in this group who has lost a dog to an attack to purchase it--its money well spent!

Dear Mr. Phillips,

Your website is a "blessing". Thank you. It helps to be able to educate myself on the issues. My neighbors wife was attacked; and, by coincidence, my city, Jasper, Al is in the early process of adopting "some kind" of dog control code.

After reading the statistics of attacks especially children attacks. I find myself on a "crusade" to help the city find and adopt the best codes possible.
