Courtroom experience is important when hiring a lawyer
Our family hired Bill McMurry to represent my daughter when she was involved in a serious accident. There are very few lawyers that possess the skills and experience that Bill has. That became quickly apparent after conducting some basic research when we started interviewing lawyers to handle her case. We found that there are scores of lawyers that handle accident cases, but very few have extensive courtroom and trial experience. We felt very comfortable with his competency early on. But an important factor we didn't know until he started to work was how much he truly cares about his clients. Our cause was his passion. He kept us fully informed as the case progressed and we were reassured by his determination and negotiating savvy. We are pleased with our decision to hire Bill McMurry, and wholeheartedly recommend him to others.
