Fighting for the Underdog With Excellence and Skill
Block O'Toole & Murphy is committed to making sure that juries understand how an injury can truly devastate a person's personal and professional life. Our law firm is not interested in a "quick settlement" unless it is beneficial to our clients. Our objective in every case is to make sure our clients receive every last dollar that they are entitled to under the law, and we do it the right way. Block O'Toole & Murphy also handles referrals for catastrophic injury cases on behalf of other lawyers and firms.
The New York accident attorneys in our firm are fighters with a wealth of legal and trial experience. We pride ourselves on trying difficult but just cases and defying common expectations. Our attorneys are noted for their hard work, fierce but fair negotiation skills and excellence in the courtroom. Our law firm is built on fighting for the underdog. It is a theme we pursue outside of the office as well, sponsoring important charities like the St. Jude Children's Hospital and the Frances Pope Memorial Foundation.
Block O'Toole & Murphy, LLP's latest firm newsletter was released to the public in February 2014, highlighting the firm's recent verdicts and settlements, awards and recognitions, as well as their charitable efforts outside the courtroom.
