Domer Law Mourns Loss of Judge Phillips

One of the true greats has passed. Judge William Phillips Jr. died this week.

His obituary is a fitting tribute to one of the giants in the Wisconsin worker's compensation community:

Thumbnail image for billphillips.jpgJudge William Phillips, Jr., bon vivant, gourmand, vinophile, man-about-town, has died. Admittedly self-absorbed as the Philadelphia-born only son of William and the beautiful Sarah Phillips, graduate of Boston College and University of Wisconsin Law School, he became a Public Defender and Administrative Law Judge who derived exquisite pleasure in finding just the right word in his worker's compensation decisions. He digested political commentary, fine wine, and haute cuisine equally well. Fiercely loyal to his friends, he never suffered fools or backed away from a political position. An unabashed liberal, he had little use for uninformed opinions and outright disdain for ignorance. Large in stature and personality, he owned every room he walked into. He will be missed by the Wisconsin Workers' Compensation community and scores of restauranteurs, bartenders, and patrons. He often expressed gratefulness for the efforts of his vigilant support team. Donations can be made in his name to the United Negro College Fund. A soiree in His Honor's honor will be held at Feerick Funeral Home, 2025 E. Capitol Dr, Shorewood from 4-7ThursdayJuly 18, Memorial Tribute at 6PM.

Judge Phillips, you will be dearly missed, but your wit, wisdom, and friendship will forever be with us.
