Phil Gibbons graduated from the Indiana University School of Law in 1996. He began his legal career as an associate attorney at a national law firm, representing and counseling corporations and employers. Since 2001, Phil has exclusively represented employees and individuals. Phil focuses his practice on two specific areas of the law: (1) employment unpaid wage and overtime claims, and (2) Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claims. Whether you have a dispute with your employer, or you are no longer able to work because of an illness, disability, or accident, Phil has the experience and dedication to help you obtain the compensation and benefits you deserve.
Phil is a husband and father to three children. Phil’s wife, Wendy, is Of Counsel with Gibbons Legal Group, P.C. Phil has two daughters and a son. Phil’s oldest daughter and his son attend college at Indiana University and his youngest daughter is a 8th grader. As a family, they enjoy outdoor activities including boating, hiking and fishing.
Phil is a relentless fighter and a survivor. He has first-hand experience with the issues and worries that come with the unexpected turns that life throws at us. In March 2010, Phil was diagnosed with Stage III Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a cancer of the blood. Phil endured multiple biopsies, surgery, and six months of chemotherapy during what he calls “the longest year of his life.” Today, the cancer is in remission and Phil is happy and grateful to be a cancer survivor. Nonetheless, Phil will never forget what it feels like to be faced with the question of whether his health would prevent him from being able to work. As a result of his cancer diagnosis and treatment, Phil made the decision to expand his practice to include SSDI benefits. Phil now helps individuals file initial applications and appeals, and represents individuals at administrative hearings.
