Ruthann’s “Why”

I’m not sure I ever chose to become an attorney. It was more like the law chose me. I always worked my way through school and have held many different jobs. After earning my B.A., I weighed my options and law school seemed to be the best fit and next logical step. I had no idea at the time it would eventually become my life’s work. I passed the bar 30 years ago this year and never looked back.

I am inspired by my clients and my colleagues. My clients fight through tragedy and pain every day. They dig deep to find the strength to carry on even when injured or grieving. My colleagues are equally inspiring. The attorneys and staff at Phillips Law Group prove every day their dedication and passion to helping those in need. I am proud to be a member of the PLG family!
