download.jpgbest lawyers in america.jpgPartners Jeffrey Block, Daniel O'Toole and Stephen Murphy of the New York City personal injury law firm Block O'Toole & Murphy have once again been named to the 'Best Lawyers in America' list. The Best Lawyers honor was founded in 1981 to identify prominent lawyers in a particular field. Inclusion on the list is an exclusive and coveted distinction, according to well-known attorneys across the country. In fact, The American Lawyer describes it as "The most respected list of attorneys in practice."

Attorneys Block, O'Toole and Murphy have been recognized on this exclusive list for many years. Few firms in the country are able to boast that all of their named partners received this sought-after honor. "We appreciate the honor but it is not lost on us that this is an achievement for our entire firm. There are so many hardworking lawyers and support staff members at our firm who have worked diligently to allow us to receive this type of individual recognition. It says a lot about our team," says Partner and firm founder Jeffrey Block. Indeed, Block O'Toole & Murphy has also been repeatedly recognized as a top Tier I rated firm in New York by Best Lawyers and U.S. News and World Report.

Best Lawyers is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, according to practitioners across the country. It is widely regarded by clients, lawyers and judges as a significant honor. Recipients of the honor are selected by his or her peers for excellence in their field of law. The methodology is designed to capture, as accurately as possible, the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues. The survey process is a sophisticated, conscientious, rational and transparent one with the sole focus being to identify the elite attorneys in a geographic region. "Recognition from fellow judges and lawyers is the best kind of praise," commented O'Toole.

Block O'Toole & Murphy is a law firm committed to fighting on behalf of seriously injured victims. They have developed a reputation for doing things the right way yet still achieving remarkable victories for their clients. The proof is in the results: The lawyers at this firm have recovered more than $850 million in verdicts and settlements for their clients. The undeniable talent of the lawyers and the hard work they are willing to give to every case is what drives their success. But, it also helps that they love what they do. "We enjoy showing up to work because every day we have an opportunity to impact someone's life in a positive way," offered Murphy. The combination has been a lethal one for their opponents.
