Plumbing Issues?

We would like to give a big shout out and say thank you to B. Walls & Sons, especially Charlie Steiner and his crew, for fixing our plumbing issues last week.  They came out and fixed our problem quickly and efficiently.  We highly recommend B. Walls & Sons!

One Week in August

ONE WEEK IN AUGUST ~ by Ronald D. Phillips, Jr. I recently returned from a trip to California and after having a few days to reflect, I decided to try to describe the impact the trip had on me. The purpose of the trip was to take a friend, adaptive surfer Jay Leisner, to surf Southern California, the mecca of modern surfing. Despite the noble purpose, the feelings the trip ultimately stirred in me were uniquely personal. The trip took me back to a time when life was more innocent and less heavy. A time when I got to surf […]

Jay Liesener and Team Surfgimp

Spreading the Stoke ~ By Ronald D. Phillips, Jr. Last night, I was lucky enough to be able to attend a party to honor my friend Jay Liesener and to celebrate his upcoming trip to San Diego where we hope to fulfill his dream to surf the waters of Southern California. As I stood there interacting with all the people who came out to be a part of what has become affectionately known as Team Surfgimp, I couldn’t help but reflect on how remarkable this whole thing was. I listened to everyone talking about how they came to know Jay […]

Happy Flag Day!

What is Flag Day? Flag Day is celebrated on June 14, marking the adoption of the American flag by the Continental Congress in the First Flag Act on June 14, 1777. The Act declared that the new flag would have “13 stripes alternate red and white: that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.” How to display a U.S. Flag: According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the flag can be displayed at all times so long as the flag has a light on it when it’s dark outside. It can often be […]

Happy Memorial Day!

So…Memorial Day.  I think that many people miss what it is really about.  Most people associate Memorial Day with the beginning of summer, barbecues and a cool 3 day weekend.  All of these are true but I want to make sure that people know that there is more to it.  So here is a mini-history lesson – Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day and originated after the Civil War to commemorate the fallen Union soldiers.   By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars. It is actually a […]

Beach Replenishment – From the Guard Chair

Beach Replenishment – Part II, continuation of “Beach Replenishment – A Perspective from an Old Salt”.  http://www.murrayphillipslaw.com/?p=2124  I saw Mrs. S standing on the shoreline staring at the ocean looking quite upset. I became acquainted with Mrs. S nearly 30 years ago as a young lifeguard. She was always very nice to me and we would exchange pleasantries whenever we would see each other on the beach. Over the many summers I spent lifeguarding, I got to know her as she would catch me up every spring on the events of her winter back in the city. As a career […]

Beach Replenishment-A Perspective From an Old Salt

In addition to being a Delaware lawyer, I am also a part-time lifeguard with a career that has spanned 32 summers guarding the Delaware beaches as well as a lifelong surfer. On a recent trip to Rodanthe on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, I had the opportunity to watch as my two youngest children accomplished the milestone of paddling into and surfing their first waves unassisted by Dad. Thereafter, I literally could not get them out of the water the rest of the trip. They caught the surfing bug that first bit me more than 35 years ago. *When […]

Lawyers

As a lawyer, I often get to hear jokes about lawyers and have received many backhanded compliments about my chosen profession. Lawyers are often viewed in a negative light and sometimes rightly so. However, I do find it ironic that lawyers are the first to be called upon when people need help with a legal problem. Lawyers can only represent people who are seeking representation…without clients, there would be no need for lawyers. Lawyers are at the forefront of protecting individual rights and societal injustices so I thought for a change I would post some quotes that present lawyers in […]

Delaware Attorney Ron Phillips Update

Delaware Attorney Update I am Delaware attorney Ronald D. Phillips Jr. On January 1, 2015, I returned to the full time practice of law concentrating once again on criminal defense and family law. For those that don’t know, five years ago I was asked to help develop a private school as their Dean of Students and ultimately became the Executive Director. After fifteen years doing DUI’s, divorces and a variety of other legal matters, I felt it was a good time to take a break from being an attorney. In addition, I would be able to work in the school […]
