John T. Phipps Law Offices, P.C. offers a broad range of legal services

At John T. Phipps Law Offices, P.C., we help people resolve many types of legal problems using our experience and extensive knowledge of many areas of the law. Our firm is known as a caring, reliable source for guidance and representation in the Champaign-Urbana area.

Divorce and family law


Our firm focuses on the central aspects of your divorce and what is important to you. John T. Phipps brings the perspective of experience to each divorce case. He steers a divorce through the settlement process to try to reach agreement and to try to avoid the expense and trauma of trial, but will litigate divorce cases vigorously when his clients’ interests are at risk. Our firm focuses on the central aspects of your divorce, including:

  • Grounds for dissolution of marriage
  • Division of assets and debts
  • Custody
  • Spousal support
  • Child support
  • Domestic violence issues
  • Jurisdictional issues

You can count on our continued support if modifications to the divorce decree are needed in the future as circumstances change.


We help people who seek to establish or deny paternity, child support and related matters.

Prenuptial agreements

We provide legal advice and prepare Prenuptial Agreements. Prenuptial Agreements save unnecessary complications in the future as well as take the financial issues and uncertainty from new marriages which enhances the marriage because parties can remove finances as an issue and protect their children with an individualized Prenuptial Agreement.

Civil and criminal litigation

We can often resolve civil conflicts through sophisticated negotiation. If settlement does not work out, we litigate your case in court to ensure your rights are upheld. We handle civil disputes including:

  • Commercial litigation
  • Contract disputes
  • Real estate disputes
  • Probate disputes
  • Business disputes
  • All types of other civil trials

John T. Phipps Law Offices, P.C. also handles complex multiparty cases. We are known for our ability to successfully work out many civil disputes without the need for going to trial.

While our criminal experience is considerable, we now limit our criminal practice to providing effective criminal law representation for white-collar crimes, domestic violence matters and DUI/drunk driving. We have years of experience on all sides of the criminal law process and use this knowledge for our clients’ benefit. Criminal cases are difficult, and persons facing criminal charges need a lawyer who will protect their rights, knows how to meet the challenges and understands the problems the client faces.
