Relatively Small Case Great Result
Mr Murphey was tireless in helping me resolve a case where we bought a New Couch with Stains on it that cost $500 to remedy. We were especially impressed with his 20 Hour Prep Total Prep time for our Depositions. It was almost like he was willing to take $500 out of his own pocket to resolve the matter. Very Learned Man!

100 % committed to justice for the injured
I have never had much luck with the lawyers. I got into an accident a year ago on a cruise ship. This accident was not my fault. I was recommended by my friend who had already worked with Mr. Benjamin Murphey before and was very satisfied, to go his office for a consultation. Ben was very professional, explained to me step by step how it works and I decided to hire him to represent me in my case. I went through different therapies after my accident, but at the end of this whole procedure the cruise ship offered us next to nothing in compensation. Ben told me not to worry and he kept his promise!! At the end my case was settled for a confidential but tremendous amount of compensation. I would definitely recommend to everyone to come to Mr. Benjamin Murphey get professional representation and at the same time very caring and compassionate help!

This is one of the best lawyers I have ever came across, very trustworthy and very caring. Ben is a wonderful lawyer and really is passionate about his work. He always calls you back and cares about you not the money. He will fight for you no matter what. I have been using Ben for the last 2 years and I honestly trust his judgement never looking back with regret....
