Philip Fraser (January 27, 1814 – July 26, 1876) was a United States federal judge.

Born in Montrose, Pennsylvania, Fraser was an attorney in private practice, Jacksonville, Florida, and was mayor of Jacksonville from 1855 to 1856.

On June 14, 1862, Fraser was nominated by President Abraham Lincoln to a seat on the United States District Court for the Northern District of Florida vacated by McQueen McIntosh. Fraser was confirmed by the United States Senate on July 17, 1862, and received his commission the same day. Fraser served in that capacity until his death, in 1876, in Jacksonville, Florida.
