Personal Injury Testimonials

“I was in a car accident in 2013. It required surgery, 10 weeks away from work and a limited ability to do everyday tasks. I had no idea what I was going to do other than waste my time and money while I waited for the situation to settle. A friend advised me to get an attorney and referred me to Robert Cummings from The Salt Lake City Lawyers. I was a little hesitant to hire an attorney because I didn’t want to add something else to my list, possibly slow down the process of getting things resolved and losing even more time and money. I wanted it to be quick and easy (who wouldn’t?) so my credit wouldn’t get shot because of hospital bills. Robert helped me more than I could have possibly imagined! He was very thorough, quick and effective with his responses and impressively professional. After working with him I received more money than I lost and it definitely sped up the entire process. I couldn’t have done it without him. He went above and beyond for me.”. A Car Accident Client.
“Very easy the communication, speaks three languages, Portuguese, Spanish, English. Fast answer emails very good help, friendly, very nice person”. OSCAR.P, A Car Accident Client.

Civil Litigation Testimonials

“I have known Robert for many years… I would describe this gentleman as Elite, Talented, Honest, Trustworthy, and Genuine. I have used Robert for both for personal as well as business consulting. Robert excels at being creative and thinking out side of the box, while at the same time staying in within the parameters on state and federal law. The great thing about Robert is that once he is on the case, I know he will do everything in his power to handle the situation. I highly recommend Robert Cummings!!!” Paul, A Litigation Client.

“Danielle was recommended to me by a friend since I no longer live in Utah and needed help quickly. Danielle was able to see me very quickly and knew just what needed to be done. At our first meeting she explained to me what would need to be done in my case and provided what next steps would be and the options on where things might progress from there. She was easy to talk to and made me feel very comfortable.

One of the things that I was most thankful for was that she was able to handle most everything for me so I did not have to stay in Salt Lake and so that I could return home and get back to work. She was also very good at working with me to help find options to help bring down the cost by suggesting places where I could take care of things myself without bringing in third parties that would have cost extra. Her fees were very reasonable and the billing statement was easy to understand. I left Salt Lake feeling much more at ease because I knew that my case was in good hands.

Once back home she was easy to deal with either by phone or by email. If I ever need a lawyer in Utah again she will be my first call. She did a wonderful job for me and I would recommend her in a heartbeat”. Laurie, A Landlord & Tenant Client.

“I had a lease/damage dispute and was lucky enough to be referred to Attorney Robert B. Cummings of Salt Lake City. Since I previously spent 20 years in law enforcement I had extensive experience with attorneys of many different realms…from prosecutors, to defense attorneys, to civil litigation attorneys, etc. Attorney Robert B. Cummings was among the best I’ve ever dealt with! He handled my case quickly and efficiently, and with personal attention to my situation. The billing was also very reasonable, indeed inexpensive. I highly recommend Attorney Robert B. Cummings!” John, A Landlord & Tenant Client.
“Robert advised me regarding gaming law and general corporate + litigation strategy matters. He is an exceptionally thorough attorney who truly loves what he does, attributes that shine through in his high quality work. Furthermore, Robert is very responsive and takes time to explain the issues, even when they are complex. As a person with a busy travel schedule, Robert’s willingness to work into my day made him a total pleasure to work with and I plan to give more work to Robert moving forward.” Andrew, A Gaming Client.

Robert manages a number of legal matters for me and my companies from vendor / partner contracts, contract enforcement and disputes, large collection disputes with defaulted vendors, employment contracts and general legal advice.Some of the things I like most about working with Robert are he is very good at finding creative ways for solving all matters I’ve thrown at him; he is extremely responsive in all communications; he provides options and different levels of response and aggressiveness depending on the goals of disputes we’ve had and taking into account if we are trying to be strong to our goals or have a more mutually beneficial outcome and salvage a partnership / friendship in any dispute.

If there is ever an area not in his specific areas of expertise or jurisdiction he has been quick to help me seek out and work with those who are best suited to handle any given situation as they arise”. Bryan C., A Contracts Client.

DUI Defense Testimonials

“I writing this review for these who is going through very hard times right now and who didn’t make a decision yet.. I was in the same situation not that long ago. If you think you life just turn around and there’s no hope.. you are wrong! Phil Wormdahl will make you fill this way..

Let me tell you my story. I was charged for 2nd DUI and since I had negative experience already I thought my case is completely hopeless even with the best lawyer in a world . Well.. after I talked to Phil, my worries almost went away. I knew from very beginning that he will do everything possible to save not just my good record but my good name as well. And I didn’t make a mistake. We won administrative hearings and then later cut great deal with DA. I ended up with fine and 18 month probation which Phil later legally reduced to 12, I’ve never lost my DL for 1 day and was able to move on with my life. We could move to trial and I’m sure Phil would be on top of the things over there but due to circumstances I’ve chose otherwise.. still was great outcome. There’s not enough words of appreciation to this young, ambition and professional attorney who will take not just extra step, but 3 extra steps to help you before and after the trial/pretrial.

If you still hesitate.. please don’t, call Phil Wormdahl , I advise you to do so as a person who went through few DUI charges and worked with many other lawyers before.

Phil, thank you so much for everything you have done for me!” Oleg, A DUI Client.

“I contacted Phil because my son had just been arrested for his 2nd DUI. Phil was very friendly and responsive. He met with us right away, explained all of the laws and processes associated with his arrest. He really helped set us at ease. His rates were reasonable and he set up a payment plan that my son could work with. Once we went to court he was able to get my son the best possible deal available. He really knows the laws around DUI’s and what you will face with the Driver License division. I would highly recommend Phil to anyone that needs a good Lawyer.” Kathy, A DUI Client.
“Phil did a great job with my teenage daughter who was ensnared by the Not a Drop policy in Utah. Phil did a great job of explaining what happens and was able to work with the juvenile system to have the charge reduced…saved my daughter from 7 years of problems.” A DUI Client.
“Phil was an amazing attorney. He truly cares about his clients and went out of his way to make sure I was kept informed and knew all potential outcomes. Throughout the very stressful process, I was comforted knowing that Phil was on top of everything and doing his best to get me the best outcome in his power. After my court appearance, I was even happier knowing that Phil was my attorney. Comparing his professionalism, knowledge, and demeanor to other attorneys in the court that day made me realize that Phil is truly top notch. I would recommend Phil to anyone needing a criminal defense attorney!” A DUI Client.

“I was up against my second DUI arrest. I was worried about jail time, ignition interlock, license suspension and long hours of community service. None of which happened…thanks to Phil! He examined every aspect of my case, which led to me paying a fine and taking a class. His knowledge and confidence put my mind at ease in a time where I thought I was totally screwed.

Thankfully I’ve finally learned a huge lesson…to never again drive after drinking”. Kevin, A DUI Client.

“Phil helped me with my DUI case and was excellent in all phases. It was evident he cared about the outcome of my case and he did everything in his power to help me out which I am very grateful for. I also respected the fact that he broke his fee into parts, only requiring me to pay him a trial fee if we actually went to trial. This showed me that he cared about his clients and was not out to squeeze every cent that he could out of me.

He was always professional and despite having other clients he had to work for, when my case was the task at hand he was very diligent and focused on getting me the best deal possible. I would recommend Phil to anyone that was in my position, he is a great lawyer and a great guy”. John, A DUI Client.

“We did not know Phil before we retained him for my son’s DUI in Cottonwood Heights. We have nothing but great things to say about Phil in handling our case. He gave us a free consultation, examined all the evidence and procedures from the police report, provided direction throughout the case, retained my son’s license, and has very reasonable fees. Phil is very easy to talk to and he makes you feel like your case is the only one he has.

He explains your best available options, is very thorough, and is always available for your questions. We were very pleased with the outcome of our case and I would not hesitate to recommend Phil. DUI cases are much more complicated than you think, and we could not have done it without his help. Phil Worm Dahl knows his stuff. Thanks again Phil”. John N., A DUI Client.

“Phillip was great. Very easy to communicate with, uses texts and e-mails. I hired him for my son’s DUI. Did exactly what he promised, worth every penny. 2nd DUI and we got away with just 6 months’ probation and 6 months suspended license. Was expecting two years!! Not saying that this is right – my son probably should have gotten two years for being so irresponsible – but that would have really screwed up his life and work. I am hoping he learned from this and will behave better in the future. Kind of sad to realize that only if you can afford it you can get away with bad behavior as not everyone can pay for a lawyer. But Phil did great work for exactly the amount he told us at the beginning. Highly recommended”. Barbara, A DUI Client.

“Phil was incredibly competent, respectful, helpful and professional from our first meeting through the last court date. He represented me in a DUI/ POCS case, and handled every detail excellently. Having such serious charges brought against you is a very difficult experience, and I am glad Phil was there to answer every question and address my every concern. His rates are reasonable, he worked with me by splitting my payment, and even better, he was efficient.

Also, his partner accompanied me to one of my court dates, and he was nothing but professional and helpful as well. Throughout the whole process I felt that Phil had my best interests at heart. He saved my driver’s license, and kept me out of jail. I can’t explain how appreciative I am. I would highly recommend him. Thanks again!” Curtis, A DUI Client.

“I researched and talked to a lot of lawyers before calling Phil, but once I spoke to him, I knew he was the lawyer for me! For one thing, he believed me and was compassionate about my situation. He’s really smart and keeps up with new laws and regulations; he was even taking a class to give him additional training and information on something that ended up helping my case.

When you call him, he gets right back to you, and his rates are much lower than everyone else I talked to. He was right by my side, with all the ups and downs a case goes through; he was as angry and sad as I was when things looked bad, and just as happy when things went well.

When he was finally able to get the judge to dismiss the case, he was jubilant, triumphant, excited and happy for me. He definitely likes to win, and worked hard to do just that! He told me that if I was ever in need of help again, of any kind, to call him and he would hook me up with someone who could help if it was not DUI related. I hope to never be in that situation again, but it feels good to know that somebody cares, and is willing to help you.

My life was ruined by the arrest and Phil helped me start putting the pieces back together again. In my opinion, you could never find a better advocate and “knight in shining armor” than Phil. I will be forever grateful to him.

If you or anyone you love has been arrested for DUI, whether they’re innocent or not, call Phil. I know he will be just as compassionate and dedicated to your case as he was to mine”. Kalen, A DUI Client.

“Through a very trying time in my life from my own poor choices (DUI), one of my biggest comforts was knowing that Phil Worm Dahl was always looking out for my best interests. While a few lawyers made shallow promises of trying to “get you out of it,” Phil simply promised to do everything in his power to best represent me and find the best possible solution to my legal troubles.

Early on after hiring Phil I offered additional money for more attention to my case above his already very reasonable service fee, but he wouldn’t accept it. He assured me that he would be giving 100% attention to my case like all of his clients and felt it unethical to take any more money from me. Needless to say, things started off on great terms.

I hired Phil in December and the case didn’t conclude until the following July, but at no time did I feel he was neglecting my best interests. He always responded promptly to emails and assured me he was on top of the proceedings with the driver’s license division and the court.

My trial was very fair, the judge respectful and I feel I received the treatment from the court I deserved and it is mainly because of Phil. No, he didn’t “get me off of the charges” like a few other lawyers shallowly promised, but rather made sure all my rights were properly recognized and represented. One unique impression I took away from my court proceedings was that it seemed like Phil spoke the “language” of the court, while a few other lawyers before us looked a little at loss and flustered.

I hope I don’t have to recommend Phil’s services to any of my friends or family members in future DUI cases, but if I do it will be a no-brainer in who I tell them to call.

Thanks again Phil, you rock!!!”. Sean, A DUI Client.

“Phil was outstanding to work with and I always had full confidence in the work that he did. I would highly suggest him to anyone dealing with a DUI case in UT”. Tim, A DUI Client.
“First, don’t even consider dealing with the court or DMV without a lawyer. If you’re wondering if you can afford and an attorney, believe me you can’t afford not to have one. I spoke to several attorneys before I decided on Phil, a few seemed barely competent opting to try to baffle me with BS, others seemed quite good but quoted me ridiculously high fees. By contrast, Phil seemed to genuinely love what he does and for this reason I’m sure he’s very good at it, and his fee was very reasonable too. I highly recommend Phil”. Chris, A DUI Client.

“Everything Phil worked towards came to fruition today, when we appeared in court for a bench trial leaving victorious, having the DUI case dismissed due to Phil’s incredible attention to detail and knowledge of past cases and current laws. Phil was with me throughout the entire journey of dealing with the process of multiple delays and advising me to “not give up now we’ve came this far.”

I will, forever, recommend Phil to anyone and everyone who has been arrested for DUI.

Thanks, PHIL!!” Carl, A DUI Client.

“It took six months, but Phil worked his magic. He was up front about the time involved and the waiting paid off. My DUI was dismissed, nothing on my record. I hope I never need to use his services again, but Phil will be my first call if I am ever in trouble again”.  A DUI Client.
“Phil did a great job in keeping communication with me during the process, and used his expertise to get me the best and most realistic outcome as possible. He provided great advice, and made sure I understood everything that was taking place along the way”.  A DUI Client.
“Phil was exceptionally responsive, and my outcome in court was exactly what I was hoping for. He mailed out a refund of the unused retainer fee the same day we had our court date.
I was impressed by Phil’s availability and responsiveness throughout my experience.
I would highly recommend him to those in Salt Lake seeking legal assistance”.
  Kelli, A DUI Client.

“Phil handled my DUI case last year. So what? Well, I called him last week and asked his advice on an employment question (about my DUI showing up in a DMV pre-employment check).

Phil doesn’t owe me anything but he took the time to return my call and explain what I could expect.

Phil also offered to talk to my prospective employer and said he would “try to help me get the job.”

Who else would do that? This is going way beyond what I paid him for his services last year and I am very impressed with him.

I would not consider calling anyone else in Utah for representation.

And I’ll never set foot in Utah again if I can help it! Very backwards state, don’t ever go to Utah and if you do, take Phil’s phone number with you”. George, A DUI Client.

“Phil is truly the “Angel of Help!”When I thought my world would end, Phil came to the rescue; with knowledge, facts, skill and true to his word; he handled my case with the utmost professionalism. I told him what I needed, and that’s exactly what we got when he won my cases! Phil is the real deal, he consistently displayed a top notch level of integrity, patiently and thoroughly answered every question I had from beginning to end, and even returned every single phone call. I’m not kidding, this man is the best guy to have in your corner; the perfect counsellor, keeping you well informed, strategized and full of peace of mind!

His main goal is to keep you at ease, aware of all aspects and factors of your case, and informed and armed with all possible solutions.

I highly recommend Phil and his skilled network of associates for any legal issues, I found the light at the end of the tunnel with Attorney Phil Worm Dahl!”

Sincerely,
Mr. C. A DUI Client.

“Helped me save my driver’s license (I did not lose it at all)Got my case dismissed

Kept me informed about everything going on, explained what things meant and what would happen next

I was always able to reach him when I had questions

He advised me on issues related to my Student teaching license”. Jessica, A DUI Client.

“Philip was my lawyer for a trial in which I was convicted of a DUI with a blood alcohol percentage after my arrest of 0.19%. Along with the fact that it was readily apparent how much smarter Phil was compared to the prosecuting attorney, his litigation skills were also very impressive and the doubt he was able to raise in the jury was considerable. After only a few minutes of deliberation I was found not guilty and cleared of all charges. The only hiccup I had with him during the entire process involved a small communication issue after my trial was rescheduled caused mainly by me forgetting to update him with my new contact info along with extensive traveling on my part. There is no doubt in my mind about which lawyer any of my friends or I will contact about criminal issues in the future”.  A DUI Client.
“I had a great experience with Philip Worm Dahl i felt like he did everything possible to help me in my case and not once doubted my choice in his representation. i sought out as many possibilities as i feel could be possible and made me feel comfortable about the choices of my plea by giving me full detail and easing all confusions”.  Karl Freeman, A DUI Client.

“I retained Attorney Phil Worm Dahl to represent me after I was arrested for DUI. He was great at talking with me and explaining the ins and outs of what can be a confusing process. I was impressed at how thoroughly he reviewed the details of my specific case and explored possible solutions. After discussing the options with me, he developed a strategy that would achieve the best possible outcome given my particular case, and according to my best interests.

I spoke with two other attorneys who both seemed to be too busy to talk with me in any detail about my case. It was refreshing to find someone who was willing to take the time to answer my questions, and hiring him turned out to be a great decision”. A DUI Client.

Criminal Defense Testimonials

“He is a caring wonderful attorney and a shark in the courtroom. I had an attorney before him that did absolutely nothing and Phil took it over and has gone 110%.

It has been a great experience & I have and would recommend him to anyone”.  Marti, A Criminal Defense Client.

“Phil saved me from the Injustice court system which tried to railroad me into an unfounded charge. We eventually settled on a plea deal that was acceptable to both sides, the end result is that I avoided jail time for something I didn’t do and removed myself from the horrible environment of justice courts in Utah.If you are faced with a bad situation Phil can help you out”. Rob, A Criminal Defense Client.

Phil is extremely professional, intelligent, and effective, and will serve any client very well”.  Will Fontenot, A Criminal Defense Client.

“I was charged with possession of marijuana and denied my rights to a public defender. Philip took on my case and I was not disappointed. We took it all the way to jury trial and after being in court all morning long, I was found not guilty.

Philip is a fantastic lawyer and I recommend his service to anybody who is in need of a lawyer”. Danielle, A Criminal Defense Client.

“Phil handled my criminal defense matter with poise, professionalism, and made it easy for me to understand every step he was taking in the process. His prices are extremely fair for the fantastic job he did. Criminal defense cases are stressful, can be embarrassing at times, and Phil always made me feel comfortable, like I had very good chances of a favorable outcome, and to contact him with any obstacles along on the way. During the case he was working on, I had another pending case in which he gave me a free consultation and free legal advice on how to take care of it all by myself. Phil goes the extra mile, never to squander money out of you, but because he truly cares about his clients. I would trust Phil with any cases I (hopefully do not) come upon in the future, and will recommend him to anyone needing an excellent attorney”.  Stephanie B., A Criminal Defense Client.
“I worked with Phil for my criminal defense case. He was excellent at explaining my options to me and making sure I understood my rights. He was always responsive and made the progress as painless as it could be. Phil was able to settle my case with the best possible outcome. I trust him implicitly–he is an excellent attorney!”  A Criminal Defense Client.
“Phil was very patient and willing to listen to my case thoroughly even though it is a complicated and long-story case. Plus, I am a second-language person, don’t speak English quite well. That is the first thing I really appreciate him. He was very enthusiastic and professional in his work to try to help me dismiss the case. He is someone that I or any client absolutely trust”.  Anh, A Criminal Defense Client.
“You may think that an old attorney with years of experience will be a sharp option ! Big mistake! Phil is an incredible smart attorney he uses technology on a high level what makes very easy to communicate with him! I found him in a desperate moment ! I had court in 3 days and I didn’t have an attorney. He was right in and took care of my stressful case “simple assault ” and he won my case! I highly recommend him !!!”   Fabiola, A Criminal Defense Client.
“Phil was excellent to work with. He got my case dismissed and was incredibly knowledgeable of the law. I would recommend Phil to anyone looking for a fantastic lawyer!!!”  A Criminal Defense Client.
