  1. Insurance
    When an insurance company treats you unfairly, I am here to help. Whether your claim has been denied, delayed, or just ignored; I can make a difference. You have rights no matter what the insurance company tries to make you believe. I can turn the tables on the same insurance company who ignored you, gave you the run around or tried to underpay you for your claim. I have helped hundreds of people whose claims were wrongfully denied, delayed or underpaid.

  2. Personal injury
    I understand the impact injuries have on you and your loved ones. When you ask me to represent you in your personal injury claim, you can be confident that you have someone who is dedicated to fighting for you. Contact me today to find out what you need to know if you or a loved one has been injured due to the fault of another.

    20 years

Phillip devotes the same honor, courage and commitment he did as a non-commissioned officer in the United States Marine Corps to helping people who are forced to go to battle against an insurance company that wrongfully denies their claim.  The insurance company has teams of people working for it to try to show the accident was somehow your fault or that your injuries are not as extensive as you say they are so they don’t have to pay your claim.  Phillip Warren practices in the areas of insurance disputes, car accidents and personal injury for this very reason: to fight insurance companies that try to delay, deny or underpay you.  Helping families and individuals in our community who have been injured in an accident or had their property damaged by a storm, fire or flood get the insurance benefits they deserve and get back on their feet gives Phillip renewed passion and reward for the work that he does.  Phillip’s colleagues know he gets results and often refer insurance and personal injury cases to him when they involve difficult coverage disputes.  His ability to understand complex issues allows him to achieve favorable results even in some of the toughest cases and has earned him some of Florida’s most pre-eminent peer rankings such as a Martindale-Hubbell AV Preeminent Attorney ranking in 2013-2017, recognition by Super Lawyers as a “Rising Star” in Personal Injury in 2012 and 2013, an AVVO rating of 10.0 and the AVVO Client’s Choice award in 2013, 2014, and 2015.


Phillip firmly believes that sitting down with his clients and getting to know and understand them is one of the most important first steps in handling a case because it allows him to give valuable, trusted insight and advice to ensure his clients understand their legal rights and make the right choices.  We never charge an initial fee or cost to sit down with you and explain your legal rights.  If you are struggling with a personal injury, car accident or property damage claim, Phillip is looking forward to your call.  Whether helping someone hold an insurance company accountable for damages to their home during a storm or making sure that a victim of a car accident receives fair compensation for their loss, Phillip works hard to make sure his clients’ rights are enforced.   While he knows he cannot eliminate the entirety of his clients’ stress and anxiety, Phillip will always try to help carry the load and tackle the problem based on his clients’ individual needs.  When he is not working, Phillip enjoys sailing, paddleboarding, and kitesurfing in Pensacola’s beautiful waterways.

State Farm Insurance Settlement
Phillip Warren helped my husband and me through some extremely challenging months when State Farm initially refused to address a claim for tornado damage to our roof. Many thanks to Phillip for his counsel and support. We recommend him to all who are struggling with storm and insurance issues.

A pleasure to work with!
Phillip is great because he isn’t afraid to fight in court, in fact he relishes the idea, so we felt empowered to stand up for ourselves when we found ourselves in a situation where we were being taken advantage of. Phillip and his firm assisted and advised us every step of the way until we were able to achieve a satisfactory resolution. Thanks Phillip!!

Definitely a Winner!!
After our insurance company denied our claim for Hurricane Michael damage we learned about Phillip Warren and his staff. After hearing about our problem and how the insurance company had denied our claim he took the case and began on a course that ended in a very nice settlement close to the amount we had made a claim for. During the whole process Phillip and his staff stayed in contact with us and kept us abreast of what was going on. If I ever need another attorney for this type of situation I will hire Phillip Warren again because he is a Winner!!

Made the difference!
If it were not for the legal assistance that I received from Mr. Warren I would not have gotten my Hurricane Sally claim paid by my insurance company. He filed a Civil Remedy Notice on my behalf and got the insurance company to sit up and take notice, finally. My claim has been paid and the difference between what the insurance company offered shortly after the hurricane and what the ultimate outcome was is nothing short of amazing. Mr. Warren worked closely with my excellent public adjusters and always was prompt in responding to my questions and concerns. He and his staff were extremely professional and if another calamity should ever befall me he will be the attorney I want to have represent me. I highly recommend his services!

Best decision I've made since the hurricane!!
Being a victim of not just Hurricane Michael but a crooked contractor as well, I was beginning to think I would never be able to move back in to my home. Then I hired Mr. Warren. He explained to me how he thought he could help me, and how the process worked. He was also very patient with my continuous questions. Today I am pleased to say that thanks to Mr. Warren, I am able to have contractors working at my house and hope to be able to go home. Without him his experience in dealing with insurance companies, I don't know if I would have ever been able to go home. I highly recommend him to anyone having difficulty with their insurance company paying a fair claim. I would hire him again in a heartbeat!

Scored a Victory Over Insurance
After throwing up our hands in frustration over an insurance dispute, Phillip took on the case and brought it to a very positive conclusion. The insurance company simply stopped communicating with us (I guess that's a "tactic" they use) and we were getting nowhere. Phillip and his team handled 100% of the legwork and paperwork, and got our case scheduled for a jury trial -- until COVID stopped up the courts. Eventually he arranged a 'mediation' meeting online with the insurance company and he slam dunked the process. The win wasn't huge for us financially, but you'd have thought it was worth a zillion dollars they way Phillip and his team aggressively worked on our behalf. Highly professional, and spoke plain English rather than trying to impress us with annoying legalese and jargon.

Great attorney that works on behalf of the client.
Mr. Warren is exceptionally knowledgeable about the insurance industry and understands the fine print in the insurance paperwork. He worked expeditiously on our behalf to resolve our issue. He was very prompt to respond to all of our questions and explained everything in layman's terms. He works on behalf of the client and empathizes with them as he works through the process until resolution. We did not have to do all the leg work as is the case with some firms. He did his homework and followup very thoroughly on our case. We highly recommend his services and his firm with no reservation. It was a pleasure working with Mr. Warren.

Trustworthy, practical, and smart
Mr. Warren and the team at Taylor, Warren & Weidner provided me with truly outstanding representation in a complicated personal injury case. Legal acumen, skill, and practical wisdom DEFINE Phillip and the entire firm of TWW. Besides being completely satisfied with the outcome of my case and my representation, Phillip and his team somehow made two years of litigation from mediation to trial seem almost painless. Phillip and the entire TWW staff are brilliant, and absolutely tireless. Our case was not simple, but Phillip, his co-partner Brian Hancock, and the entire TWW team navigated each challenge with uncommon steadiness, professionalism, and expertise. Where Phillip shined was in how he took a uniquely common-sense approach to our case, which clearly came from his ample experience. Good lawyers know the law; great lawyers know the law and understand how practicalities (and personalities) influence outcomes. Phillip, Brian, and the TWW team are the latter. Phillip's approach may stem from his military experience, or his experience as a lawyer, but either way with him at the helm, I knew my case was in great hands. I must also mention the teamwork exhibited by Phillip and everyone at TWW. Our preparation for trial involved everyone from paralegals to support staff and attorneys. This approach to trial prep ensured we had a diversity of opinions on our strategy, and I am certain that this contributed to our success. I am thankful for all Phillip and his team did for me, and I cannot endorse them enough.

In the world of BIG TIME Attorneys
The BIG bill!boards you see that promise you the WORLD and DON'T ,well Phillip is not like that!!! I had a question about an auto accident and was having trouble talking to a lawyer . I called Phillip and he returned my call and took all the time i need and gave me the answers I needed and took my info down and told me to feel free to call if I needed anything at all. This is almost unheard of now days to get advice from a lawyer free of charge ,although they say they will. Thank you Phillip for your time and honest concern you showed .

Very Honest and Candid
After recently moving to Florida from Arizona, Linda and I had the misfortune of dealing with a General Contractor hired to build our home, near Panama City Beach. Nothing seemed to be going to plan, finally after several thousand dollars of materials went missing from the job, we contacted the local police and were told it would be a civil matter and to contact an attorney. Mr Warren was extremely sympathetic and agreed to handle our case. After our initial consultation, he returned our calls and was very responsive to our Emails and kept us informed along the way. If you are looking for an honest attorney we would certainly recommend Mr Warren and his staff.

Very Trustworthy
I found Mr. Warrens group online and was fortunate enough to be connected with him. I felt very at ease speaking to him over the phone and even better when I met him in person. He is very professional, knowledgeable, honest, and trustworthy. We had a lot of communication through email. I never waited for a response, he was always right there. I felt comfortable knowing my case was in the hands of Mr. Warren. Not only is Mr. Warren AMAZING, so is his staff. I would recommend or refer him to anyone who needed it! Thank You Mr. Warren and staff for your professionalism, understanding, and heart. I greatly appreciate you!

Excellent and Outstanding Service
My initial visit with Mr. Warren and his firm was very positive. I was hesitant about going to an attorney and firm of which I had no prior knowledge. Mr. Warren was very knowledgeable and explained options concerning my legal matter in a very simple way. He gave me ample time to ask questions and made sure I understood and received the service I needed and expected. The receptionist was very cordial, I was put at ease as soon as I entered the door. I am very appreciative of Mr. Warren and his genuine concern for my case.

best attorney
Phillip Warren is a rare breed. I have had the unfortunate task of engaging several attorneys in my life. 95% of them will not return messages in a timely manner, will not account for their time billed and generally over bill for their time if they do account for it. Not so here, Phillip always returned my calls in the same day and usually within the same hour. In the end he managed to arrive at a suitable outcome and charged a reasonable fee to do so. Thank you Phillip

Extremely Helpful!
I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for the time you gave us, yesterday, and all the advice. Linda and I really appreciated it. You gave us the confidence to move in the direction we needed to go, but we were just unsure of the next step. No doubt, we'll be talking to you again.

Great lawyer! Would highly recommend!
We are very pleased with how much Phillip has helped us through this process. From the very beginning we were impressed with how straight forward and informative he was. He has continued to address any questions or concerns we may have. If an issue ever arose in the future, he would be our "go-to guy" for sure!

Phillip Warren is an exceptional attorney
Phillip Warren handled my auto accident/personal injury case in a timely fashion, was able to secure a suitable settlement amount, and his staff was personable and extremely helpful. He's an intelligent and kind man, and a phenomenal attorney who goes above and beyond for his clients. I would recommend him to anyone seeking assistance in the personal injury/auto accident field.

Sun Life Insurance ?Disability claim denial and cancelation of beniefits
Phillips used the best professionalism and knowledge that he could based on my discussion with him. Not seeing any documentation he was able to give me guidance based on his education and knowledge of laws. I would recommend Phillip to anyone needing a good legal lawyer for insurance claims and I will be seeking his representation in the future should my situation take a different turn over the weeks to come. Thank you again Phillip for your help. D'Anna
