Jeffrey Phillips

I was born and raised in eastern North Carolina and attended college at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I graduated in 2000 before attending law school at Wake Forest University and graduating in 2003. As the son of two public school educators I always had a strong desire to help the people of North Carolina. During law school I received a scholarship from the North Carolina Bar Association Foundation as well as awards for the highest grade in both my Trial Practice class and my Education Law class. I also participated in law school clinical placements with the Legal Aid Society of North Carolina’s Winston-Salem office as well as the Forsyth County District Attorney’s Office and a private criminal defense firm in Winston-Salem.

I joined Kellum Law Firm in 2003 after graduating from law school that spring and since then I have represented thousands of people throughout North Carolina in Social Security disability claims at various levels of the process. I have attended nearly 2000 Social Security disability hearings with Administrative Law Judges across North Carolina including hearing sites in Raleigh, Fayetteville, Greensboro, Wilmington, Asheville, Greenville, Roanoke Rapids, and Elizabeth City. I have also had the honor of representing many of our nation’s military service members in the Social Security disability claims process including members of the Wounded Warrior Battalion – East aboard U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and members of the U.S. Army Warrior Transition Battalion at Fort Bragg.

Since I began practicing law I have maintained memberships with the North Carolina State Bar, the North Carolina Advocates for Justice (NCAJ), and the National Organization of Social Security Claimant’s Representatives (NOSSCR). I have always focused my law practice on helping people with disabilities and severe injuries fight for their right to the benefits and help they deserve. I also enjoy spending time with my wife and our two sons.
