My Office: Phil Appenzeller

For most of his childhood, Phil Appenzeller lived in a 31-foot travel trailer, as his father was a traveling minister. He and his brother were home-schooled by their mother, until the family settled in Missouri. As a young boy, Appenzeller was fascinated by the Watergate hearings on television. He asked his dad about the men who were whispering into the witnesses’ ears. “Those are the lawyers,” his father said. “I was about 8 years old at the time, and decided that was what I wanted to do,” Appenzeller says. The seasoned litigator was selected to lead Munsch Hardt in 2014. It has about 130 attorneys in Dallas, Houston, and Austin.
