Mary Wisehart Phillips, Senior Litigation Attorney at Cordell & Cordell, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Lawyers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in family law, probate and estate law.
Hailing from a family of lawyers, Ms. Phillips has always been intrigued by the notion of a courtroom providing individuals with a voice where they would otherwise be left unheard. Obtaining a Bachelor of Science in psychology from Texas Christian University in 1990, she went on to serve as an assistant at the Marion County Public Defender’s Office from 1991 to 1992 while pursuing her law degree. In 1993, she obtained a Doctor of Jurisprudence from the Indiana University Law School and was thereafter employed as an attorney by Wisehart & Phillips Attorneys at Law. She maintained the role until 2008 when she opened her own firm, Phillips Attorney Inc., which she upheld until 2013.
From 2013 to 2016, Ms. Phillips was a court commissioner and judicial officer for Henry County, Indiana before serving for one year as a resident attorney at The Nice Law Firm in 2017. For the following year, she was an attorney-at-law at Camden & Meridew, P.C. before excelling as a senior litigation attorney for Cordell & Cordell, a role she has held since 2019. Notably, she is a certified family law specialist by the Indiana Family Law Specialist Certification Board and specializes in family law, probate and estate law.
Maintaining membership with the Henry County Bar Association, Indiana Bar Association, Indianapolis Bar Association and Camden County Bar Association, Ms. Phillips attributes her success to the training she received from her father and the satisfaction she feels when she helps others. Looking toward the future, she intends to become a litigation manager for Cordell & Cordell and eventually rise up to the position of partner.
