Before joining Kegel, Tobin & Truce, Phillip Soon held an associate position with a workers’ compensation defense firm that’s well-known in the Los Angeles area. Mr. Soon also completed several clerkships while he was still in law school. The most remarkable of these was his time with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office’s Preliminary Hearing and Hardcore Gang Investigations Units. Mr. Soon also spent time advocating for the disadvantaged through his participation in the Public Counsel’s Homeless Court Program.
Mr. Soon is passionate about appearing before the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board (WCAB). During this time, he presents depositions and negotiates tirelessly on behalf of his clients. Doing so allows him to use those skills that he honed during his years as a clerk.
When he is not working, Mr. Soon enjoys spending time with his wife and their young daughter. He is an eager traveler and likes sharing the excitement of learning new things and exploring different cultures with his family. So far, they have traveled both at home and abroad.
Mr. Soon is proud that he has already visited 34 countries around the world as an independent traveler. He looks forward to adding more stamps to his passport in the very near future.
A bit closer to home, Mr. Soon and his family are also passionate about exploring the diversity that can be found among Los Angeles’ culinary landscape.
