Who We Are

The attorneys at Morgan & Murphy have been practicing law for over 25 years. Our practice began in New Bedford, MA and on Cape Cod. Over the years we have expanded to become a regional law firm. We now have additional offices conveniently located in Brockton, MA , Fall River, MA, Plymouth, MA and Quincy, MA.

Our attorneys have represented more that 10,000 victims in injury and disability cases. We have represented generations of families who have been satisfied with our legal services. Most of our new clients come into the firm as referrals from prior clients. While many law firms represent both injury plaintiffs and insurance companies, at Morgan & Murphy we have never and will never compromise our exclusive dedication to injury victims by also representing insurance companies. We feel that by focusing solely on plaintiff’s claims, we can deliver high quality representation without any conflicts of interest.

The individual lawyers at Morgan & Murphy bring diverse backgrounds to the practice of law. Some have practiced in the field of personal injury law for their entire careers. Others bring with them the benefit of practicing in other areas of the law, thus allowing us to bring a multi-disciplinary approach to representing injury victims. As a firm, we are passionate about the work we do for our clients and are dedicated to performing at the highest standard to achieve excellence for our clients.

    Sample of Verdicts

      $150,000 settlement on a SLIP AND FALL ON ICE AND SNOW. The client underwent surgery for a broken leg after he slipped and fell on the sidewalk outside his home. We recovered pain and suffering, lost wages and medical expenses for the client.

      $80,000 settlement for a slip and fall at a convenience store on a wet floor. The client sustained several broken bones. The convenience store defended saying that there were "WET FLOOR" posted throughout the area. Despite that the defense, we were able to get the insurance company to pay for medical expenses and pain and suffering.

      $30,000 settlement for an OUT OF STATE DOG BITE CLAIM. We contended that the dog's owner was strictly liable for the injury to the finger and we were able to settle the claim successfully without having to leave Massachusetts.

      $100,000 policy limit settlement for a person injured in an auto accident. During arbitration we successfully argued that the plaintiff's pre-existing, congenital Chiari Malformation was aggravated to such an extent by the injuries sustained in the car accident that they became disabling and in need of surgical correction. The arbitrator agreed and ordered the insurance company to pay the entire amount of its policy.
