About Philip

Learn Philip’s areas of practice.

Prior to going to law school I practiced as a registered respiratory therapist and worked as a medical corpsman in the military. I graduated from Washington University Law School in 1982. While there I received the American Jurisprudence Award for Excellence in the study of Remedies. I received the President’s Outstanding Service Award from the Bar Association of St. Louis in 2002. I have obtained an AV Martindale-Hubbell peer review rating which Martindale-Hubbell states is their highest level for professional achievement. I have published many legal articles on a variety of subjects in the personal injury practice. My background provides valuable assistance in working on your personal injury or wrongful death case.

Mr. Denton
Professional legal service. My father was a lawyer, one of the few "good" ones, and I would put Mr Denton into that same group. Trustworthy, experienced, honest, and knowledgeable of the law. If you are looking for a quality lawyer, those are the qualities that you are looking for. I would refer Me Denton to anyone that was in need a legal representation.
