Where is he now? – Philip Alito, son of Justice Alito

The future of the Supreme Court  Justice is in the air right now. The most recent term ended with the announcement that Justice Anthony Kennedy will be retiring this July,

and President Trump has stated that he plans to nominate a replacement soon after that retirement becomes official in July 2018. Because Kennedy has been the deciding vote on many important cases during his tenure as Supreme Court Justice, such as Obergefell v. Hodges and Citizens United v.

FEC, many are wondering what this means for the future of American politics and lawmaking with him out of the picture.

Early Life

In 1990, Phil became the fourth generation to enter the seminary as a member of his family’s legacy. That following year he completed his undergraduate work and then pursued a graduate degree in theology from Loyola University Chicago. In 1993, he accepted a teaching position at St.

Ambrose College in Davenport, Iowa, and the following year taught theology at Mount Carmel High School in Columbus Ohio.

In 2000, Phil joined Ave Maria Law School where his father had been named Chancellor that previous year; since 2002, he has been with Ave Maria School of Law as an Associate Professor.

Professional Background

An aspiring attorney from Williamsburg Virginia, Philip attended the University of Notre Dame on a football scholarship. Unfortunately, his college football career was cut short when he tore his ACL playing intramural basketball.

At this point, some would see this as a setback while others could see it as an opportunity. Rather than letting his injury deter him from his goal of becoming an attorney,

it only served to motivate him to work harder to make up for a lost time. One semester shy of graduation and with nearly a full-time course load and six credits over the normal three credit courses required per semester to graduate at the University of Notre Dame, he took the LSAT and was accepted into law school at Washington University in St. Louis.

During the summer before beginning his first year of law school, he interned at Smith County Attorney’s Office and focused on civil cases and criminal misdemeanors.

He went on to graduate Cum Laude with high honors (3.8 GPA) from Washington University School of Law in December 2013. Since graduating from law school, Philip has clerked for Judge Stephen

Higginson on the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas and has worked as a litigation associate at Cooper & Cooper LLC in Dallas Texas where

he primarily focuses on commercial litigation matters including breach of contract disputes, property damage claims, construction defects claims, lender liability issues, oilfield contracts disputes, and eminent domain claims.

Marriage & Children for Justice

Philip is married to his high school sweetheart Karen, who graduated from the University of Florida. They are the proud parents of two daughters and a son: Sophia,

Caroline and Nicholas. The girls attend Saint Teresa’s Catholic School in Washington DC and Nick attends Holy Cross. They spend summers on Martha’s Vineyard with other families from their parish community at Holy Trinity in Dallas.

The girls are involved in ballet, softball, and soccer. Nicholas plays baseball and is a Boy Scout. On occasion, they have had an opportunity to serve alongside their dad at some of his speeches as well as watch him speak at events on television.

They have also attended Supreme Court functions as part of their outreach efforts in recent years and hope to continue these types of service projects in the future.

Philip’s Education: Philip graduated from Georgetown Prep in 1997 where he played varsity lacrosse all four years; winning two league championships and earning the first team All-American honors twice – first as a sophomore midfielder when they went undefeated winning 43 consecutive games, then again his senior year playing attack with 97 goals and 26 assists.

Political Views

The United States has been in a politically charged environment for the past four years. Among all of the big events, who knew that something as small as a personal family member would have an impact on someone so high up in government? As many know,

Associate Justice Anthony M. Kennedy was retiring from his position after having served for over three decades on the Supreme Court.

President Trump then chose nominee Brett Kavanaugh to take his place but there were many opposing arguments from Democrats and those who disagree with some of Kavanaugh’s stances on abortion and gun control.

But this isn’t about politics or justice because this is about the personal life of someone else: Philip Alito, the youngest son of Associate Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., more commonly known as Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr.
