Charlie Phillips Honored for Offering Pro Bono Legal Aid to Hundreds

Posted by Monica Hoel
“Charlie Phillips is the best of us.” That’s how how fellow attorney describes this attorney who has just won an award for being one of Virginia’s most effective lawyers – even though he is retired.

The Lewis F. Powell Jr. Pro Bono Award was established in order to honor attorneys who have made outstanding pro bono contributions. It is named for the late Lewis F.  Powell, Jr.; a Suffolk native who practiced law in Richmond and served on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Charlie Phillips was lauded for having completed more than 900 cases since he began to litigate cases in his retirement in 2018. Charlie was among the first attorneys in Virginia to take advantage of a relatively new program that provides insurance coverage and continuing education for lawyers who wish to retire but still serve pro bono. The program called “Transition Into Emeritus Status” or Ties is described on the Virginia State Bar website – and Charlie is quoted there, saying he’s happy to give back to a profession that “has given him so much.” 

Among the comments in letters of recommendation for the award was a word from a client who said simply, “Charlie Phillips saved my life. Were it not for his brilliant, tireless efforts, I would have become homeless and in all likelihood, died as a result…I will be grateful to him, and he will remain in my prayers forever. He is a noble gentleman.”

Read the full story on the Virginia Bar Association site.
