As an “of counsel” attorney with McCallum, Hoaglund & McCallum, Phillip’s goal is to
lend his leadership and experience to skillfully represent individuals and businesses
involved in civil litigation, personal injury and business litigation matters.

A Servant Leader With a Diverse Background

Since entering the practice of law in 1988, Phillip McCallum’s career has covered
variety of practice areas. He’s also been on both sides of the courtroom, working as
prosecutor as well as a litigator for plaintiffs and defendants. He’s also worked to
support lawyers and further the legal profession through public service roles with
organizations such as the Alabama State Bar.

Phillip’s broad background provides him with a unique perspective in analyzing and
understanding the predicament that people find themselves in. This ensures he’s able to craft effective solutions to achieve his clients’ goals.

At the heart of everything Phillip does is his ingrained desire to serve others. It’s a
calling that drives him to help his clients correct wrongs. And it’s that calling that
continuously leads him to seek out and obtain leadership roles with professional and community organizations where he felt he could help make a difference.

Some of Phillip’s more notable roles include Founding Partner of a successful
nationwide law firm, McCallum, Methvin & Terrell, President of the Alabama State Bar and Executive Director of the Alabama State Bar.

In stepping into each of these roles, Phillip focused on ensuring his motivations to lead were pure and grounded in his desire to help others. This focus remains at the forefront of every client he interacts with and every case he handles.

Mediation Services Also Available

In addition to his current role with McCallum, Hoaglund & McCallum, Phillip has
established McCallum Mediation, LLC, an arbitration and mediation practice, to help
lawyers resolve their clients’ cases.

Outside of practicing law and managing his mediation practice, you’ll find Phillip
spending quality time with his wife and children, who are at the center of his universe. You may also find him in a boat every once in a while, as he loves fishing-especially deep sea fishing.
