From the very first days after passing the bar, Philip Corboy began making a name for himself as a staunch defender of public health and safety. He argued, and won, his first case before the Illinois Supreme Court at the age of 26, just one year after passing the bar. But even before that, he was instrumental in drafting a public ordinance for the city of Chicago that banned smoking in elevators. Those who knew him best described him as a man who would never think twice about helping someone in need. From an employee who needed his guidance to a homeless person on the street or a tragedy-stricken family across the country, his love for mankind and his unique ability to connect with individuals in need and from all walks of life is unmatched. He wrote more than 100 articles on legal matters over the course of his career, and was a frequent guest on shows like 20/20, Nightline, and The Oprah Winfrey Show.
“Having an opportunity to do the right thing for each client is why I remained a trial lawyer.”
