Phil graduated from the Marshall-Wythe School of Law of the College of William & Mary in 2005 where he graduated as a member of the Order of the Coif and the Order of Barristers. Prior to joining Tarley Robinson, he served as law clerk to the Honorable Joseph J. Farnan, Jr. of the United States District Court for the District of Delaware.
Phil’s practice focuses on civil litigation, primarily in the areas of real estate and contract disputes, including both commercial and residential landlord and tenant matters. He helps our clients in community association matters by interpreting and enforcing association documents; communicating with property managers; and collecting unpaid assessments. For our community association clients, Phil works closely with the managers and board members to assess each case and to provide reasoned advice that is cost effective to our clients.
