Prior to opening his own firm, Noah was a founding principal of Hughey Phillips, LLP. For approximately four years, he led the firm’s white-collar criminal defense and corporate investigations practice groups.  Given decades of trial experience, he handled serious personal injury matters. There, he secured the largest multimillion-dollar settlement in firm history. He had the distinction of representing individuals and businesses in all types of commercial disputes.

Noah transitioned into private practice following his bid as challenger in the 2018 campaign for Sacramento County District Attorney.  Not surprisingly, the race garnered notable recognition and support for him  locally, statewide, and nationally.

Prior to his bid, Noah had a distinguished 20-plus year tenure with the District Attorney’s Office as a principal attorney and supervisor of several major felony divisions.  He was a trial attorney, a mentor and he helped create programs which greatly benefitted the underserved in our community.  He regularly instructed law enforcement, attorneys, and others on a variety of legal topics.

An expert in both complex criminal litigation and forensic medical evidence,  Noah serves on the faculty of the U.C. Davis School of Medicine, where for more than 17 years has trained and prepared psychiatrists and related specialists for expert opinion trial testimony. In this single endeavor, he has spent over 1,000 hours preparing and cross-examining medical experts in more than 100 cases.

In 1997, Noah was the commencement speaker at McGeorge School of Law where he graduated with honors.

Prior to that, as a younger man, he worked as a wildland firefighter and kayaked most of the serious whitewater in California.  He is the founder of Noah Phillips Law.
