A couple of the things I love about being a lawyer are the challenge of matching wits with smart people and the satisfaction of overcoming obstacles. I also like figuring out solutions to problems. I'll borrow a line here from the great and famous trial lawyer Bobby Lee Cook: "The great thing about this job is I can get up every morning and kick somebody in the butt who really needs it!"
Phil has been married for over thirty years and has two children who are now grown, but he still has a few fur babies including Charlie, a “ruby” Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and an orange tabby cat named Louie.
When he’s not crushing it in the courtroom, Phil has many interests including debate, public speaking, politics and current events, theology, ethnography, all things history. He also enjoys music and sung in a barbershop quartet, plays piano, and the harmonica. He has been an active member in his community through church, instructing continuing education courses, volunteering with the Central Virginia Legal Aid society, and as a Den Leader with the Webelos Scout Troup. As soon as he finds some time, he’s going to try out for Jeopardy!
