What others have said about Hon. Philip A. Ross


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: OK1551
He has done a great job of keeping the Kay County "good ole boy" system in place in that most people believe the system in Kay County is corrupt. Ross is lacking intellectually and is lazy. He was the son of a Kay County lawyer and got by off those coattails early on in his career and then spent the majority of his time in practice as an assistant district attorney before coming a judge. He is very pro-prosecution and doesn't have a clue regarding the civil practice of law. In the last year his temperament towards lawyers and litigants has became increasingly unpleasant unless an attractive blond female were to appear before him. Some suspect the decline in temperament has to do with the inability to wear the halo he use to put over his head until his marital indiscretions became public knowledge and destroyed the choir boy image he held for so many years.

His actions on the Blackwell City Charter gave me the impression he did not want the monkey on his back.Over 1200 people in Blackwell voted the three commissioners out and Ross stayed the results. He will not get my vote for re-election.
