Phil is an Elder Law Attorney, LifePlanning Coach, and previously a co-host for an AgingOptions radio show on KGMI. He is also a passionate advocate for the aging and elderly. He was first introduced to the idea of LifePlanning when Rajiv Nagaich was his Elder Law Professor at the University of Washington School of Law. Phil had been fortunate enough to mentor under Rajiv until he came to work for him back in in September of 2014. Phil is currently the Managing Attorney of both our Edmonds and Bellingham offices.
Phil is also a member of the Board of Directors for the Whatcom County Hospice Foundation as well as the Advisory Committee for the Bellingham Senior Activity Center. As well, Phil does quite a bit of Pro Bono work every year on behalf of Law Advocates of Whatcom County, a not-for-profit organization that provides legal assistance for those in need. Phil’s parents live in Ferndale and he and his wife, Elisa, recently returned to make their home in Bellingham with their two dogs, Blackjack and Augustus. In their spare time, you can find Phil and his family enjoying all the golfing, camping, boating, crabbing, fishing, hiking, and winter sports that our beautiful Whatcom county has to offer.
