Clients Endorsements

I contacted some other attorneys but they would not represent me. About 18 months after the collision, I hired Mr. Murphy. They negotiated a very good settlement on my behalf and kept me informed throughout. I felt very comfortable with them. – C.J.

I lost my ability to earn a living due a serious head injury. McCormick & Murphy fought for my rights, and eventually collected over $1,000,000.00 for me. I highly recommend McCormick & Murphy. – Brian

After I was hit broadside by a drunk driver who had no insurance, my insurance company would not pay for the injuries that the other driver caused. I hired McCormick & Murphy…the jury awarded me over $900,000.00. – Sally
