Neal Spradlin

Neal W. Spradlin joined Liggett Law Group in November 2021, focusing his practice on personal injury litigation. Before joining the firm, he spent years representing a Fortune 100 insurance company and its insureds. He knows the tactics big insurance companies use and now uses that experience to stand up for individuals and families against large and heavily insured defendants.

Neal is a trial lawyer with experience at every stage of litigation, from filing lawsuits through appeals. He is also a qualified and trained mediator/third party neutral, essential skills that help him serve as a successful advocate for his clients during case negotiations.

Neal’s professional background includes active, intense litigation as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Texas, as a prosecutor when an Assistant District Attorney in Lubbock County, and as an insurance defense attorney. For years, he worked as an in-house trial attorney for a well-known global property and casualty insurer, litigating cases in the entire West Texas region. Now, Neal proudly advocates for clients who are hurt because of the negligence of others. This includes helping clients who are victims of automobile accidents, commercial vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents, premises liability, workplace injuries, wrongful death, and more.

Neal graduated from Austin College with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Sociology in 2010, magna cum laude. Subsequently, he obtained a Master of Business Administration in General Business from Texas Tech University Rawls College of Business in 2013. He earned his law degree from Texas Tech University School of Law in 2013. During law school, Neal was a Founding Board Member of the Business & Bankruptcy Law Journal, selected for membership in Phi Delta Phi Honors Fraternity, and won the American Jurisprudence Award in Contracts for obtaining the highest grade in his section. He was also selected for inclusion in the invitation-only Order of Barristers for his successes in several oral advocacy competitions, including winning the Championship of the National Energy & Sustainability Moot Court Competition in 2013. In addition to being licensed to practice law in the state of Texas, Neal is also licensed in the state of New Mexico.

Neal is a member of the State Bar of Texas, the Lubbock Area Bar Association, the Texas Young Lawyers Association, and has served in leadership positions – including currently as President-Elect – of the Lubbock County Young Lawyers Association. In his free time, he enjoys being physically active and spending time with friends and family. He has also given his time to the Volunteer Center of Lubbock for several years.
