New York personal injury lawyers Daniel P. O’Toole and Stephen J. Murphy of Block O’Toole & Murphy, LLP have once again been named to the Irish Legal 100 for 2014. The Irish Legal 100 is a listing of the leading figures in the law of Irish decent across the entire United States. Its honorees include such luminaries as U.S. Supreme Court Justices John Roberts and Anthony Kennedy, as well as leading practitioners across the country in both public and private practice.

Daniel O’Toole has been practicing law since 1992 and has received numerous accolades during his illustrious career, including being recognized as a ‘Super Lawyer’, featured in ‘Best Lawyers’ and being named as the Jewish Humanitarian Society’s Lawyer of the Year. O’Toole boasts a reputation as a tenacious negotiator and skilled trial attorney, fighting for those who have been seriously injured or killed in accidents. His multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements consistently rank him among the best trial attorneys in New York State, including a recent record breaking $22.5 million settlement that includes what is believed to be the largest pain and suffering award in the history of the New York Court of Claims.

Stephen Murphy, a former homicide prosecutor in Brooklyn, has been practicing law since 1997. Murphy has received much recognition for his work, including being named as a ‘Super Lawyer’, featured in ‘Best Lawyers’ and being honored as the Frances Pope Memorial Foundation ‘Man of the Year’ for his charitable work on behalf of those battling pediatric cancer. Murphy is known throughout the bar as a fearless lawyer who relishes taking on large insurance companies and corporate entities. He represents injured New Yorkers who are victims of construction accidents, motor vehicle collisions, medical malpractice and other acts of negligence. His courtroom victories place him among a very select group of trial attorneys, including a jury verdict of nearly $33 million that Mr. Murphy procured on behalf of a 60 year old man who suffered a brain injury after being struck by a car, which is the largest negligence verdict ever taken in Long Island.
