You will be treated as an individual in your personal injury case as Raymond Murphy accepts a limited number of personal injury matters so that each case can receive the full benefit of his vast experience. Many firms have a large volume of cases and are unable to give each case the personal attention that it deserves. This volume approach of other firms often results in cases being settled for smaller amounts or amounts of essentially less than the value of the case. Mr. Murphy aggressively pursues fair and business like resolution of your case early in the case, sometimes through trending techniques in alterative dispute resolution such as mediation and arbitration. However, if your case cannot be fairly resolved, Mr. Murphy prepares each case and is ready, willing and able to bring your case to trial before a jury when it is necessary.
