Hi. I’m Mark Fay. I’m a partner with the law firm Murphy and Fay. I have been a partner here for the last 14 years. I have been a practicing attorney for 25 years, all in civil litigation, all in trial work, all in either representing or defending individuals and personal injury cases. One of the benefits that I have in my trial background is that from my first 11 years of practice, I represented insurance companies. I was representing the defendants. I was the person that was helping the insurance companies to determine which cases will not go to a trial, which ones going to a trial, who’s gonna get how much money and how soon. I know how the defense side works, believe me because I was in it for 11 years. For the last 14 years, I’ve done all plaintiff’s work which means now I’m representing all the individuals that were injured. The insurance companies know me. They know I can try cases. They know I can evaluate cases and they know if they decide to go up against me in a trial, that I’m gonna do a good job. How does this help you? This helps you because part of the evaluation any insurance company makes in regarding how much they’re gonna pay on a case is whether or not the attorney is gonna do a good job at trial. I know because I made that decision for 11 years. If a plaintiff’s attorney can do a good job at trial, the insurance companies are more likely to pay you the maximum amount of settlement as possible to avoid a worst result during trial. If they know the plaintiff’s attorney has no trial experience or little trial experience or is not willing to go to trial, if the case is worth 50 then they’ll offer him 25. If it’s worth a hundred, then they’ll offer him 50. That’s a very important component. I have that. I have that trial experience. I have the insurance defense background. I can help you.

Amazing work
Mark fay is a great attorney, he always kept me up to date on things going on in my case. He got me more money than I was expecting and I'm a timely manner. Great personality, great team that works for him, I've used other lawyers in the past and no one comes close to meeting his standards. I've never seen or had a lawyer that worked as hard as he did to get me what I deserved. Hands down the best attorney in rhode island, I would 100 percent recommended him if you are looking for a lawyer to get you what you deserve he is the man to see!
