After graduating with Honors from Western Illinois in 1984, Phil accepted a position as a probation officer with the DuPage County Probation Department.

During his positions as a clerk and probation officer, Phil attended and graduated from The John Marshall Law School in Chicago, Illinois.

Upon graduating from law school, Phil accepted a position as an assistant state's attorney in DuPage County, Illinois where he served for approximately two years. During this period of time Phil was responsible for the prosecution of criminal offenses finding himself on trial on a daily basis.
