About Murray

Learn Murray’s areas of practice.

Murray L. Bristol started this firm in order to provide quality representation for individuals and small companies for serious legal problems that they have encountered. Previously, Bristol prosecuted felonies as an Assistant District Attorney for the 34th Judicial District Attorney's office. During his time as an Assistant District Attorney, he argued more than 100 hearings before the Court and tried over 40 criminal trials resulting in 17 life sentences.


After leaving the District Attorney's Office, Bristol worked for a prominent law firm with offices in Dallas and Tulsa. One of the former partners of this firm became Governor of Oklahoma. While an attorney for this firm, Bristol litigated all types of cases from simple contract disputes to serious injury and death cases involving multi-state liability against national corporations. During this time frame, Bristol further developed his litigation and trial skills and learned what is necessary to prevail in the sometimes political and powerful judicial system.


Many of Bristol's high profile cases have been followed by local and national news medias such as the USA Today, Sport's Illustrated, The Dallas Morning News, and the El Paso Times. Bristol has further been interviewed about his cases by ABC News with Peter Jennings, Dateline NBC and The Wall Street Journal.


Bristol is licensed to practice in all State Courts in Texas and Oklahoma, as well as in the United States District Courts in the Northern and Western Districts of Texas and the Eastern, Northern, and Western Districts of Oklahoma.


Bristol earned a bachelor of business administration degree in finance and entrepreneurship from Baylor University where he was honored by being named to the Dean's List. He received his juris doctorate from The University of Tulsa College of Law where he was a member of the Energy Law Journal, Phi Delta Phi legal fraternity, and was listed on the Dean's Honor Roll. He also attended Southern Methodist University School of Law and studied British Constitutional and European Economic Community Law at The University of Oxford, Queen's College in England.


Bristol is very involved in the legal community and is currently a member of the Travis County Bar Association, Dallas County Bar Association, North Dallas Bar Association (Director: 1999-2000), State Bar of Texas, Oklahoma Bar Association, Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, Texas Trial Lawyers Association, and Association of Trial Lawyers of America. When Bristol lived in Oklahoma, he was a member of the Tulsa County Bar Association, Oklahoma Trial Lawyers Association and a Charter member of the Tulsa County Criminal Defense Association. Bristol further donates his legal time to represent indigent families on a pro bono basis through the Dallas Volunteer Attorneys Program.


Bristol primarily practices in the areas of personal injury, auto and truck accidents, nursing home negligence, wrongful death, criminal defense, fraud, breach of contract, and products liability with an emphasis on trial law.

Murray Bristol Review
I am very pleased with my decision to hire Murray Bristol to represent me. Murray was extremely knowledgable and personable. He was able to communicate what I needed to know every step of the way. He was on time for every meeting and date I was required to attend. He was very professional and extremely talented in the courtroom. On top of all that, he works extremely hard and has the best intentions of his client in mind. I would highly recommend Murray to anyone, including friends and family.

Thorough profossional and a very helpful and understanding lawyer
Murray has helped me tremendously over the last year. I met with quite a few lawyers before picking Murray to represent me and I couldn't have made a better decision. I contacted his office and he returned my call promptly. What was different about him was he didnt have his assistant take details or was in a hurry to hang up, instead he gave me 45 minutes of his time to go over the details with no commitment whatsoever. I met with him and realized that he can help me out - he was very candid about the options I had, the chances of a dismissal and what to expect. Over the next year Murray had been there for me. This was definitely a tough time for me and I would reach out to him frequently and emailed him when I got anxious, had questions or got worried. Every time I heard back from him within 24 hours. He was always very understanding about what I was going through, patient with my queries and very responsive. He always made time when i wanted to meet him. The best part of the experience was the end - he helped me get the case dismissed. I will forever be thankful to him.
