— Attorney Comment

"I would, without hesitation, give Mr. Phillips my highest recommendation for his work. Mr. Phillips is resourceful, diligent and responsive. His primary task was to evaluate a number of different printed circuit boards [regarding a case alleging patent infringement]. He developed and conducted a series of reverse engineering experiments to delaminate the multi-layer printed circuit boards for analysis of their complex internal layouts. He personally conducted many of the experiments, and set up and managed others at a laboratory when specialized equipment involving x-ray or plasma etching was required. I was impressed with his ability to continuously construct new tests whenever it looked as though we could go no further. One thing that particularly impressed me about Mr. Phillips was that he worked very well under pressure. We faced extreme time constraints this project, so Mr. Phillips worked day and night, seven days a week, to develop our case. I will always appreciate the personal sacrifices he made."
