Neal Philip is a trial and appellate lawyer. For more than 25 years, Mr. Philip has fought for his clients at the trial level throughout Washington and Oregon, including during numerous jury trials, and he has also represented well over 100 clients in appeals in state and federal court.

Though his practice is largely focused on insurance coverage issues involving claims such as bad faith, breach of contract, and violations of Washington’s Insurance Fair Conduct Act, Mr. Philip also has a varied defense practice in other areas as well. He has represented clients in cases involving allegations of wrongful death, director/officer misconduct, professional liability, wrongful termination, discrimination and harassment, elder abuse, products liability, and murder, among others.

One of Mr. Philip’s proudest achievements as a lawyer is being part of the first Innocence Project Northwest legal team to help a wrongfully convicted person get released from prison after the client served 5 years in prison for his purported (and false) role in the Wenatchee “sex ring” allegations in the mid-1990s. Mr. Philip is also very proud and honored to have been part of Vashon Island Fire & Rescue, first as a volunteer firefighter from 2002 to 2007, and then as an elected Fire Commissioner from 2007 to 2013.
