Stephen J. Murphy Named to Prestigious ‘Best Lawyers’ List

‘Best Lawyers’, the most respected consumer guide to the premier lawyers in the legal profession, has once again recognized Stephen J. Murphy for his outstanding legal skills. A listing in Best Lawyers is widely regarded as a significant honor, given to lawyers who bring honor to their profession and respective field of practice. The award is given to attorneys who receive the highest acclaim from their peers. The list was compiled by conducting an exhaustive evaluation of leading lawyers by surveying their colleagues, adversaries and judges. The list of the “most respected attorneys in practice” has been called the “best” indicator of who the top attorneys are in their area of practice and a “cut above” other lists.


Mr. Murphy, a former homicide prosecutor, remains a force in courtrooms throughout New York. This is the 5th occasion he has received this honor from ‘Best Lawyers’. Murphy’s recent results include a $9,950,000 Settlement and a $7,400,000 Resolution for his injured clients.

Mr. Murphy joined the firm in 2005 and the firm name was changed to Block O’Toole & Murphy in 2008.
