Law Firm Overview

Phil Fine owes his decision to practice law to a sudden gust of fresh air. "I was a pre-med major and had left some specimens to dry on the window sill during my organic chemistry class final exam," recalls Phil. "A minute later a sudden wind whooshed past the window and blew all my specimens away. This was a timed, controlled assignment, so I failed the final. I decided then to seek an alternative career."

Phil Fine owes his decision to practice law to a sudden gust of fresh air. "I was a pre-med major and had left some specimens to dry on the window sill during my organic chemistry class final exam," recalls Phil. "A minute later a sudden wind whooshed past the window and blew all my specimens away. This was a timed, controlled assignment, so I failed the final. I decided then to seek an alternative career."

Phil switched majors to political science and history and knew he had found his true calling. "I have been fascinated with politics all my life and I enjoy studying history because the past often foretells the future," he says. "I also have great empathy for people and decided to become a family attorney to make sure our established legal system gives everyone a square deal. When I tell my clients I will fight for them I mean it."

Coming from a hard working family Phil appreciates what his clients go through to make ends meet. "Some of my bankruptcy clients come to me distraught because they are in debt," he says. "I know that sudden medical bills, unexpected unemployment and family disasters can hit people hard. Thank goodness we have a legal system that provides for people in these circumstances. Bankruptcy provides a safety net so they people don't lose their homes or cars and have the ability to get back on their feet again."

As a family practice attorney for almost 40 years, Phil is gratified when multiple generations of the same family seek his advice and legal expertise. "I like it when my clients come in and we have a comfort level because of our long history together," he says. "This enables them to freely ask for help and for me to understand exactly what they need. My goal is to make sure my clients get the best representation I provide whether they see me for a divorce, child custody, foreclosure, personal injury, or probate."

When Phil is not working hard for his clients he enjoys spending time with his wife Arlene, bicycling through Cleveland's scenic pathways, visiting his four children who live out-of-town, and playing with his beagle, Daisy.

But his work is never far from his thoughts. "I'm here to serve," adds Phil. "Helping my clients get a just settlement and resolution of their problems is extremely rewarding. That wind that blew through my chemistry class window pushed me in the right direction."

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
