Meet The Attorneys
Phillip T. Vondra, Esq. is a local graduate of Serrano High School. He earned his undergraduate degree from the University of California, Irvine. From there he went on to San Diego and graduated from the Thomas Jefferson School of Law in 1991, and was admitted to practice law in 1992. Phil became a successful attorney in the San Diego area gaining valuable courtroom experience handling criminal defense cases. In 1998 Phil decided to return to the High Desert area to raise a family and open a personal injury practice in Phelan. As a personal injury attorney he prides himself on giving honest advice. He understands that in a small, tight-knit community like the High Desert, word of mouth is everything. The majority of his cases have come from word of mouth referrals.
Phil's tremendous success as a personal injury attorney stems from his passion and determination to help his clients combined with his superior expertise in litigation and negotiations. Insurance companies and defense attorneys know and respect Phil as a relentless and savvy litigator, and a superior negotiator. Clients love Phil for his passion and concern for them, and for his good nature and solid character.
Phil is great father, and is deeply involved in a variety of community organizations such as the Wrightwood Disaster Preparedness Team and the CERT Program. He is a model citizen who cares deeply about his community.
Mr. Hanna received his BA from the Evergreen State College in 1976. He received a Master’s degree in education at the University of Idaho in 1978 while working as a teacher/intern at a local middle school. Mr. Hanna worked as a certified secondary teacher in both Washington State and California until 1988.
In 1988, Mr. Hanna received a juris doctor from Western State University and was licensed to practice law in California. He practiced criminal law with the firm of Stewart and Barnett in Santa Ana, California until 1992 and completed over 20 jury trials. In 1992, Mr. Hanna moved to the High Desert and has practiced workers’ compensation for ever since. In addition to representing injured workers, Mr. Hanna has also practiced for over one year as a defense attorney representing insurance companies and employers with the Law Firm of McDermott and McNamara. He returned to applicant practice with additional skills and knowledge to maximize benefits for his clients.
Mr. Hanna is certified by the State Bar of California as a Workers’ Compensation Specialist. He is also a member of the California Applicant Attorney Association which advocates increased benefits for injured workers throughout California.
Kathleen L. Butler earned her law degree at Western State University College of Law, in Fullerton, CA, and graduated in 1990. Before obtaining her law degree, she became a workers’ compensation legal secretary at age 21 and worked for that defense firm for 26 years, working her way up to bookkeeper, office manager, and when she passed the bar, an attorney. She then left that firm to venture out on her own, where she practiced Family Law and Personal Injury for 6 years. Kathleen moved to the High Desert in 1991, and returned to practicing workers compensation as her preference; both in representing injured workers and insurance companies.
Kathleen has been successful both in representing injured workers and representing defendant insurance companies in workers’ compensation matters; including handling subrogation matters in workers’ compensation. Her background from working from the ground up in a law firm has made her compassionate to both her staff and her clients. She also owned a Bakery in Wrightwood California for a period of 4 years; and we have decided that is why she is so sweet. She is now a powerhouse for injured workers; with the special knowledge of how the insurance companies think and work.

A really great attorney- what you genuinely expect
I was attacked by neighbors dogs near Victorville, I went to an attorney in Alhambra that had the case for 3 years! ( btw I never met the attorney -staff said he's like 70+ years old) and he either sold to another lawyer or ??? who (also 70+?) finally met me during the last 6 months of the 3 years, and said I needed to settle for $15,000 when I declined the attorney dropped my case which caused the insurance company to then offer $2,000 and they flooded me with additonal legal paperwork discovery to get me to drop the case. I was in a tough spot with trial date looming and very lucky Phil Vondra met me, reviewed and took my case and within a few weeks got a settlement double the original "recommended" amount. on a side note we also talked about other matters and he helped with advice/referrals
Excellent customer service.
Honest, competent, and hardworking
The tip of my daughter's nose was bitten off (literally) by a dog before we moved to Apple Valley. When we got the settlement offer, we took it to Vondra for his opinion as to whether it was fair or not. He believed that they were (naturally) trying to underpay her, so he took on her case. Since she was a minor, he charged us 5% less than the regular fee and only took his fee from whatever he could win above the original offer. His office always answered our questions, returned our calls, and kept us apprised of the proceedings. Phil was always professional and realistic about the possible outcome; at no time he ever mislead us. He did win an additional $50,000 for her and we were impressed with all the work that he and his staff did.
