PHILLIP C. UMPHRES is a Dallas, TX trial lawyer licensed to practice law in Texas and in multiple federal courts. He is a 1980 Harvard Law School graduate, former Army JAG trial lawyer and former partner in a nationally known law firm. Phil also served over 16 years (1991 - 2007) as an Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA) with the US Attorney's Office in Dallas, TX, where he established himself as one of the "go to" lawyers in the office for the investigation and trial of complex federal white collar criminal litigation of all types, including: public corruption cases, tax crimes, health care fraud, securities frauds and environmental offenses.

Phil now brings his broad experience to the defense side, representing those charged with or under investigation for federal and state criminal offenses.

Phil also has extensive civil trial experience, having been with the Dallas office of the nationally-known law firm Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer and Feld for six years (a partner for two years) prior to joining the US Attorney's Office in 1991.  While at the US Attorney's office, Phil was assigned for two years to defend the United States in civil litigation.  While not his main area of practice, Phil also represents clients in all aspects of civil litigation and appeals.

Well respected by his peers and the judges he appears in front of, Phil is AV rated by the Martindale-Hubbell rating service, the highest rating of ability and ethics provided by that distinguished and nationally recognized attorney rating service.

Phil's clients include people involved at all levels of the criminal justice system: witnesses who have been asked to cooperate with the government, suspects under active criminal investigation, those already charged and facing trial and those already convicted and seeking appellate or post-conviction relief.  Whatever your situation, Phil has the ability to investigate your case, explain your options to you, and then either quietly work to get your matter resolved or aggressively represent you when you need a powerful advocate in court.  No single "style" is right for all situations.  Phil has the ability to understand what your case requires and to shape his representation of you to the needs of the situation.
