About Our Law Firm

We are Overland Park bankruptcy attorneys and criminal trial attorneys.  

Phillips and Thomas, LLC is a Kansas City area law firm which focuses its practice in the areas of criminal defense and bankruptcy. Our mission is to represent our clients zealously and provide the highest level of legal services in these areas.  We serve clients across both Kansas and Missouri.

The law firm of Phillips and Thomas, LLC was formed in 2000 by the managing partners John Phillips and George Thomas.  All of our attorneys each have a minimum of 18 years of legal experience in practicing bankruptcy and criminal law in both Kansas and Missouri.

We have long experience with complex litigation in both criminal and bankruptcy cases in federal, state, and municipal courts.
