Phillip J. Meinkoth is the Olson Law Firm’s newest attorney.
Originally from Stillwater, Oklahoma, Phillip graduated cum laude from the University of Tulsa before attending law school at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law.
During law school, Phillip quickly realized he had a passion for trial advocacy. He competed and prevailed in many trial competitions, including placing in the top 8 in the TYLA National Trial Competition, and received the Director’s Award for Excellence in Trial Advocacy.
Phillip is driven to use his legal skills to help his clients receive the best possible results for their claims during the most stressful and trying times.
Phillip knew he wanted to be an attorney from a young age. He volunteered as an intern at his hometown’s Legal Aid Services. Phillip saw how many injured people are often in desperate need of help and saw how lawyers could have a positive impact on the community.
“I remember interning for Legal Aid Services and realizing how many everyday people are hurt or left ignored by the bureaucracy of the law,” he says. “I initially believed my best way to give back as an attorney would be working as a copyright attorney for small artists, but after participating in my school’s trial advocacy program, I found my calling – trial work. I hope to bring all of my skills to bear for helping those who have been injured or disenfranchised and to be an advocate for those who need one.”
