Jim and his team devoted themselves to our case. Knowing how important this case was to us, they never stopped working. Even when the insurance company refused to settle the case, Jim continued to have faith and hope and encouraged me to have faith and hope. We love Jim; we can never thank him enough for what he has done for our family.
I was referred to Jim after my husband passed away. At the time I called, Jim was on summer vacation. To my surprise he called me while on his family vacation. From the first phone conversation I knew I was referred to one of the top-notch lawyers in the state. Jim and his staff worked tirelessly on our case. Jim is very caring and incredibly smart. He treats you like family, not just another case. I can honestly say he is the best lawyer I have ever found. I highly recommend him and his staff.
My husband was referred to Jim after his accident. Our first consultation with Jim we knew he was a very smart and caring lawyer.
Jim and John Barron fought like bulldogs to win our case. His staff treats you like family and works tirelessly. We give Jim and his staff 5 stars.
Jim and his staff are loyal and make you feel like you are their only client and passionately fight for you with all they have. They were awesome through a really difficult time. They are professional but most of all the office is full of good-hearted people.
Our family found it extremely difficult to find an attorney who would be willing to take on a giant automaker in a complicated products liability case. Most attorneys did not want to handle the case because the driver of the vehicle was convicted of a felony and was held criminally responsible for his role in the injury to my son. When we met with Mr. Murphy, he told us that he would fight for our son as though Matthew were his own son; throughout the case Mr. Murphy put the interests of my son first. Ultimately, Jim forced the auto manufacturer to settle based upon the powerful case Jim’s team had developed. Jim hired the best experts and worked relentlessly on behalf of our family. I could not recommend Jim Murphy more highly. He remails a friend of our family to this day.
