The Best Thing That Happened to My Family
In the video, the son of one of our clients speaks with the interviewer in regards to his father’s case.
Interviewer: Your dad’s lawyers, Dan O’Toole and Stephen Murphy, got the largest personal injury verdict in Long Island History. What do you think about these lawyers?
Son: They’re the best thing that happened to my family. They are absolutely wonderful people, not just as lawyers, but they’ve become good friends. And without them, this would’ve turned out far different than how it turned out. It was amazing.
Interviewer: A lot of people have a perception of a lawyer who just takes on the case, tries it, and forgets about the clients. Not the case with Stephen and Dan, is it?
Son: Not at all. Not at all. It never felt for one second that they were just lawyers at all. They were instantly members of the family. They treated us as members of their family. They’re just great people. I often hear people say that too…that their lawyers are just that. They handle their legal case. But [Stephen and Dan] are very involved with all aspects of life. They’re in tune to what’s going on and how things are with us.
