Our Law Firm
My name is Steve Phillips and I’m the founder and managing partner of Phillips Law Offices in Chicago. I went to Loyola University of Chicago Law School and graduated in 1985. I am the former president up the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association.
I’m also a member of the International Academy of trial lawyers which I’m particularly proud of because there’s only five hundred lawyers in the world who are in the international academy. What’s rewarding about being an attorney is the ability to help people who had the potential to be bullied by insurance companies. I find it very rewarding that when people come to me and they need help and they’re honest and they’ve worked their whole lives and they’ve done nothing wrong they need someone like me. They need someone on their side to say, “You know insurance company I wanna be treated fairly. I wanna be treated for what my losses are what harm was cause to me.” And when they come to me when they say, “Mr. Phillips can you help me? I had all this harm caused to me.” I find it very rewarding to be able to help them when I get a positive verdict or settlement fror
my client I get a feeling of both accomplishment and satisfaction.
my clients most of them are hurt and injured very badly. Their lives have been turned upside down and oftentimes I wake up the next morning after I resolve a case for a client who I really like and really deserves justice and I have a sense of satisfaction and I have a sense I’ve really done something to make their life better.
