Phil Berger, Jr. has worked everyday for the past seven years to protect his community as the District Attorney of Rockingham County. As one of North Carolina's leading prosecutors, Phil Berger has kept his promise to uphold and defend the law, to stand up for victims and families, and to prosecute criminals to the fullest extent of the law, instead of cutting deals.
Berger has helped to establish the first charter high school in Rockingham County and the new Providence Charter High School will open in August 2014.
Berger graduated from John M. Morehead High School, earned his Bachelor’s degree from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and his Law degree from Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem. Upon graduation, Berger went to work in his family’s law practice before running for District Attorney.
Berger and his wife Jodie, a public school teacher, have two sons, Philip III and Will. Their commitment to faith and family has led Phil to be a leading voice for the North Carolina Marriage Protection Amendment. The family attends Osborne Baptist Church in Eden.
