U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers have announced their 2015 rankings, and we are proud to report that Block O’Toole & Murphy, LLP has been named to their prestigious list of “Best Law Firms” in the United States. Also, once again, the rankings include firm Partners Jeffrey A. Block, Daniel P. O’Toole and Stephen J. Murphy, individually, as “Best Lawyers” in the entire country.
These rankings are based upon a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, as well as peer reviews from leading attorneys in our field. To be eligible for “Best Law Firm”, a firm must have at least one lawyer who has been deemed a “Best Lawyer”. We are honored that three of our lawyers are once again “Best Lawyers” in the U.S. News report, which is a distinction reserved for only the top 4% of practicing attorneys in the country.
These national recognitions are very meaningful to us because they signify that we are accomplishing our goal of providing the absolute highest level of representation to our clients; those individuals who have been seriously injured and need our help. Our results speak for themselves. We have recovered over $800,000,000 for our clients through hard fought verdicts and settlements, and no law firm in New York State had more reported multi-million dollar personal injury awards in 2012 or 2013 than Block O’Toole & Murphy, LLP.
