Practice areas
  1. Personal injury
    Generally, every person has a responsibility to act with “ordinary care.” Ordinary care is defined as the care which a reasonable person would use in similar circumstances. If a person is not using ordinary care, that person is considered negligent. Another way of stating this “ordinary care” test is that if a person, without intending to do any harm, does something or fails to do something that a reasonable person would recognize as creating an unreasonable risk of injury or damage to another.

    41 years, 1,800 cases

  2. Animal and dog bites

I have been handling personal injury matters since I started at Murphy & Prachthauser in 1983. Helping people who have been not only injured but denied benefits or compensation is personally rewarding for me. I represent clients the way they should be represented - motivated and equipped to do my best for you. I take pride in being a good lawyer who helps people.
