Our Guiding Principles

“Return on Investment”
We are committed to providing high-quality legal services to our clients, while ensuring that our clients receive a great return on their investment. If you are searching for a firm that protects you and your investment, give us a call.

“Team Dedication”
When you retain Philip B. Hughes, P.A., you are not just retaining a single attorney. You will have the support of two attorneys, as well as a legal assistant. Each of us brings various strengths to the table, and all of us will be dedicated to your case.

“Healing”
When a client reaches out to our office, it is usually because they are experiencing some difficulty in their life. Perhaps a divorce is pending, or he or she recently lost a loved one. If you find yourself in such a difficult situation, let us take care of the worries and frustrations so that you can focus on healing.

“Professionalism and Respect”
We know that you are busy. You don’t have time to play “phone tag” with an attorney just to get a quick update on your case. We respect your time and your right to be fully informed at every step of the process, and we promise to make ourselves available to you. Our clients can reach us on our cell phones.

“Customer Service”
Everyone in our office comes from a customer-service background. We remember that you are not just a case or file number, you are our customer.
