Phil Truitt joined Truitt Law Offices in 2018 after he earned his J.D. from Ohio Northern University Ohio Northern Pettit College of Law. However, his association with the law firm dates all the way back to childhood. His father, Richard, established the firm over 40 years ago.
Growing up, Phil would spend a great deal of time at the firm’s offices. He began working for the law firm in high school and handled client intake and management roles throughout law school.
Today, Phil combines the practice of law with a role as administrator of the firm’s three offices in Indiana. Those duties include client intake and responsibility for the firm’s marketing as well as handling cases.
Truitt Law Offices’ practice is focused solely on personal injury cases and a commitment to carrying forward the ideals of client service that he learned from his father while growing up.
“The most important thing he taught me was to listen to what people have to say and treat everyone with respect” Phil says. “He taught me the importance of truly caring about others.”
As an attorney, Phil says that he values the satisfaction that true client service can provide.
“I like being able to help people when they’re at a time in life when they don’t know what to do,” he says. “Being there for those people and being able to calm their worries is a great feeling.”
Phil also received a B.S. degree in Business Management from Manchester University in 2015.
In addition to his studies and his work, Phil also served as a legal intern in the Northern District of Indiana Federal Defenders office and as president of the Ohio Northern University Pettit College of Law Environmental Law Society.
Away from the office, Phil enjoys all types of outdoor activities — hiking, fishing and exploring national parks — and he also is a passionate motorcyclist as well as an automobile enthusiast.
