Mr. Murphy’s practice focuses on an extensive array of medical specialties, including obstetrics and gynecology, neurosurgery, colorectal surgery, orthopedic surgery, surgical oncology, cardiology and psychiatry. Mr. Murphy represents his clients at all phases of pre-trial litigation and has successfully tried cases to verdict at trial.
