Client Endorsements

  • When I hired McCormick & Murphy, they immediately took action, and fought to get my medical bills paid, and to recover fair compensation for the injuries I had suffered. When the fight was over, McCormick & Murphy had recovered 10 times more than the insurance company had offered to pay me for my injuries. I highly recommend McCormick & Murphy

  • Even though I lost my ability to earn a living due a serious head injury, neither the insurance company of the driver who hit me or my own insurance company offered to pay for the lost wages that I would lose over my life time. McCormick & Murphy fought for my rights, and eventually collected over $1,000,000.00 for me. I highly recommend McCormick & Murphy.

  • I hired McCormick & Murphy to fight for my rights, and after years of fighting with my insurance company, McCormick & Murphy took my case to trial, and a jury awarded over $400,000.00 to me for the way my insurance company had treated me. I highly recommend the law firm of McCormick & Murphy.
