About Our Practice

With nearly 100 years of combined Personal Injury legal experience, Oliver and John, along with their team successfully advocate for our clients who have suffered serious injury and even the wrongful death of a family member.

The art of navigating the complex and often changing landscape of insurance litigation takes a great deal of experience and know-how.

This is exactly why people who have been injured in an accident call Phillips and Pelly.

Nearly 100 Years of Combined Experience

Founded in San Diego in 1997, San Diego Insurance Litigation Attorney Oliver Pelly, and former District Attorney for L.A. & San Diego County, John Phillips, are two of San Diego’s longest standing, most experienced team of Personal Injury Attorneys in the market space. A team of seasoned lawyers have joined the Firm over the years, including former insurance defense lawyers. This invaluable insight helps each and every client as we know the playbook. The team has nearly 100 years of combined legal experience.

Experience does matter. Since 1997, we have focused solely on Personal Injury litigation for San Diegans. This level of specialized expertise can literally mean the difference between fair compensation for a Client’s injuries, or receiving little if any compensation as a result of choosing a less experienced attorney or an attorney who does not specialize solely in Personal Injury.

We handle everything for you, which is an invaluable relief during what is sometimes one of the most difficult times in a Client’s life.

The Phillips and Pelly Difference:
A Client-Based Culture of Excellence

With over 22 years of representing injury accident clients in San Diego, and a combined near 100 years of legal experience, our Firm effectively blends specialized knowledge with cutting edge legal techniques in the field of Personal Injury. Our dynamic, Client-based culture of excellence means never resting on our laurels and always strategically advancing the clients case for the maximum benefit. That is the secret to our longevity and one that is never taken for granted.

Our team is constantly learning and applying new, modern techniques, furthering our education and staying abreast of the ever changing landscape of insurance litigation. This level of experience and commitment to excellence is truly the differentiating factor for our Clients.
