Philip Koelsch is a Temple-based personal injury lawyer. He is dedicated to improving the lives of anyone who reaches out to The Carlson Law Firm for assistance after suffering an injury caused by another person’s negligence.
Philip was born in Houston, Texas, but grew up in Waco. He considers himself a true Central Texan and is a fourth generation Longhorn. Philip’s talent as a writer and drive to give back to his community led him to the legal field. His education provides him with a unique understanding of issues that truly impact a community.
He received his law degree from Baylor University Law School. Philip is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Government. He is a member of the Bell County Bar Association, Bell County Young Lawyers Association and the Texas Trial Lawyers Association.
Clients who hire Philip can rest assured that he will fight tirelessly on their behalf. His ultimate goal is to make sure his work leaves his clients in a better position than they were during their initial intake. Philip’s compassionate representation, attention to detail, and storytelling-ability benefit clients who suffered personal injuries in car wrecks, 18-wheeler, and commercial vehicle crashes, as well as premises liability cases.
Philip’s academic career was a foreshadowing of the excellent work he does for clients. He received Special Honors in Government at UT, was awarded the Deans Excellence Full Tuition Scholarship at Baylor Law, was a member of the Baylor Law Review and was on the Baylor Law Dean’s List on three separate occasions.
Philip’s Texas roots are deep. His family has resided in Texas since 1824—before Texas was even a U.S. state.
When he’s not practicing law, Philip enjoys taking his ski boat out with friends on Lake Waco.
