Phil is an immigrant from Taiwan who came to the US in 1986. After passing the Bar in 2004, Phil received his L.L.M. in Tax Law from the University of Washington. Phil started his solo practice in 2004, but after a few short months of tax practice, he came to the realization that he belongs in the courthouse, fighting for the accused who are not capable of defending themselves.
Phil dedicated the next 15 years of his practice to temper and sharpen his skills. He has done over 50 jury trials and have gotten several not guilty verdicts ranging from simple misdemeanors to Class A felonies.
Phil attended the two week National Criminal Defense College (NCDC) Trial Institute in 2015. Phil speaks three languages (English, Mandarin, Taiwanese).
