In a career that has spanned more than 50 years, Phil Corboy has made a name for himself as (arguably) the most legendary personal injury attorney in Chicago history. Many aspects of Corboy's career make him stand out as a model to other attorneys, not the least of which is his overwhelming success. Corboy and his law firm have tried more than 300 cases to verdicts in excess of $1,000,000, including countless verdicts in excess of $5,000,000 and $10,000,000 for a single client. He has personally been involved with some of the more significant cases in the past 25 years, including several high profile airline crashes, the Tylenol case and has presided over some of the largest personal injury cases in Illinois history. What makes Corboy's career remarkable, however, are two less noticeable aspects of what has brought him to prominence.
First, Corboy has always remembered where he came from and has embraced his not-so-perfect history throughout his rise to fame and fortune. In short, Corboy exemplified resilience and making perceived negatives into positives. Corboy has also come up against limits and does not have a perfect history. The fact that Corboy knows who he is not only provides him a sense of psychological security, but it also gives him a broader base of appeal to people. This is important because, in this author's opinion, it has greatly assisted his rise to prominence because he is able to identify with the people he is assisting in his work.
