Phil shared his formula to success with Midwest Real Estate News:

“First, I learn everything I can about a client’s business so I can understand that client’s goals and risk/reward trade-offs,” he told the publication. “Their dreams become my dreams. Their worries become my worries. Second, I bring every ounce of energy and creativity I have to each project to find solutions.”

He is a former chief managing partner of the Firm who has represented both for-profit and not-for-profit clients in numerous significant commercial transactions over the years, including the development, sale or refinancing of major hotels, office buildings, gaming projects, sports facilities and retail centers. Phil has worked in virtually all aspects of real estate including gaming, finance, development, joint ventures, real estate funds, real estate taxes, workouts and foreclosures, construction law, and leasing.

Additionally, Phil is a regular speaker at Indiana Continuing Legal Education Forum seminars and very active in his community through his service as a board member of the Riley Children’s Foundation and Capital Projects Fund Task Force of the United Way of Central Indiana. He is a past chairman for the Board of Indianapolis' largest not-for-profit community development corporation, Near North Development Corporation. He is active in the legal community through American College of Real Estate Lawyers, Indianapolis Bar Association and Indiana State Bar Association.

Phil has spent his life living and working in the Midwest. He was born in Indianapolis and graduated summa cum laude from Macalester College at St. Paul, Minnesota with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology.
