50 Years of Experience and Millions in Recoveries

We are personal injury trial attorneys with over 50 years of combined legal experience. Since 1995, we have recovered millions of dollars for our Colorado clients. To provide convenient and exceptional legal services to accident victims throughout the state of Colorado, we have offices in Colorado Springs, Denver, and Pueblo.


Our Practice

We focus mainly on two (2) areas of law: 1) Personal injury accident cases and, 2) insurance bad faith cases. Throughout our 20 year history, we’ve been fortunate to achieve substantial financial settlements and verdicts.

The primary types of accident cases we handle, in order of frequency, are:

Our firm exists to help make our clients financially whole again after an accident. If you or a loved one has been injured as the result of negligence, or you’ve been denied compensation based on bad faith insurance tactics, we hope you’ll contact us for a free case evaluation.

This evaluation obligates you to nothing. Furthermore, we work on a contingency fee basis, which means you pay us nothing unless we recover compensation for you.

I highly recommend McCormick & Murphy.” – Ted, Colorado Springs
