Anthony Murgatroyd attended St. John's University, and the University of London. In 1989, he graduated Rutgers University School of Law.
After graduating law school, Anthony Murgatroyd served as the Clerk for a Judge in the Superior Court of New Jersey. He then worked the next three years as trial counsel for a Morris County AV rated firm, which is the highest rating given, where he specialized in the defense of complex legal and professional malpractice claims. After that, he served as house counsel to a major insurance company, handling personal injury, automobile accident, and product liability claims.
Working for the insurance company he gained first-hand knowledge of how insurance companies handle injury claims. He started his own firm so he could use that same knowledge to help people who are injured--people who were now going up against the insurance companies themselves. As former house counsel to a major insurance company, Anthony Murgatroyd knows what to expect, and how to prepare your case for success.
