Rising Phoenix Law Group was founded as an idea. The idea that legal representation should focus, first and foremost, on the client and the representation the client receives. Rising Phoenix Law Group refuses to handle more cases, and increase profits, at the expense of quality of representation. – Andrew Charles Long, Founding Partner
