Why I decided to become a lawyer? Well, I think I was sort of predestined to be a lawyer. I come from a long line of lawyers in my family. My grandfather Phil Deeb Sr. was a lawyer. He became a lawyer back in the 1950s. After he left World War II, came home and started running his family store, he became a lawyer back in the 1950s. My father became a lawyer in the late 1960s. My mother became a lawyer in the early 1970s. My uncle was a lawyer. My brother is a lawyer. And so I felt I guess destiny was that I was to become a lawyer.
Growing up, I always heard my family talk about cases, heard my family talk about clients. And it always fascinated me to listen to how they thought cases through and how they planned to help their clients. And it was something that intrigued me throughout high school and then into college.
I decided to go to law school. So I graduated from the University of Kentucky College of Law in 1994. And I came back and joined my father's law firm because I knew I wanted to be a trial lawyer, be involved with individuals who had been injured, and go into the courtroom and try cases to help people obtain justice who'd been injured.
When I'm not practicing law, I enjoy anything that has to do with my four children. They're older now. I've got one son who graduated from a master's program, and he's going into biotechnology. I've got two children now in college and one in high school.
I travel to watch them swim. They're competitive swimmers in college, and one of my sons is on the crew team in his university. And my daughter is in the theater, so they keep me busy and that's what I enjoy doing. When I'm not with them, I enjoy volunteering throughout the community and being with friends.
