He has national counsel experience in asbestos, product liability, and environmental matters. As local counsel in New Jersey and New York, he has attracted clients from all over the country. His clientele is varied and wide-ranging, which is a testament to his trial experience and the strategic thinking he brings to his cases. He is a leader in the Federation of Defense and Corporate Counsel (FDCC), an invitation-only defense organization.
In addition to the renewal of his Porzio-based litigation practice, Mr. DePhillips also joins the Executive Team of PorzioLS.
