Philip Cripps was involved in the oil and gas industry for over a decade before changing career paths and joining The McCullough Group, an affiliate of Sage Settlement Consulting. Since his transition, Philip has assisted numerous plaintiffs’ attorneys and their clients with a variety of issues, ranging from structured settlements and attorney fee deferrals to Medicare Set-Asides and trust services. It is his passion for helping people and his ability to clearly communicate with others that have made him a successful and trusted settlement planner.
Phil understands that each client he meets has been through some type of traumatic event, and therefore gives his undivided attention to ensure that all of their questions are answered, and concerns are addressed. He takes pride in knowing that if the appropriate actions are taken prior to the settlement, it will have a positive and lasting impact on the person's life. No part of the settlement process is easy, and when one finally receives the settlement, it can sometimes be overwhelming and intimidating. Phil knows the importance of preserving the claimant's settlement proceeds through a long-term solution, such as a structured settlement so that the funds can provide security and stability for the client and their family.
Phil was born and raised in Pineville, Louisiana, and then moved to Lafayette soon after high school. While in Lafayette, he graduated from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, with a degree in Political Science (Pre-Law). He planned to attend law school, but after receiving a job offer in the oil industry, he chose to go ahead and start his professional career.
Phil is currently married with two children. Most of his time is dedicated to his family and friends, but when possible, he enjoys hunting, fishing, and pipe carving. He is also a self-proclaimed chef and has coached his son's soccer team to multiple championships.
