A union carpenter reviews Block O’Toole & Murphy
Our client, a carpenter, was hurt on the job. Represented by Partners Daniel O’Toole and Scott Occhiogrosso, the Plaintiff was awarded a settlement in 2017. Hear him speak about his experience with the law firm.
I’m here to say: I highly, highly recommend Block O’Toole & Murphy. They’re the utmost excellent law firm that could possibly be out there. They did so many things for me that I thought were impossible. They made it possible.
They lifted me up when I was down. They treated me as much as family.
And I would love to say that I’m very, very grateful. And I would like to thank Mr. Scott Occhiogrosso and Mr. Dan O’Toole.
I highly, highly recommend this law firm.
