TALENT, EXPERIENCE & HARD WORK
CONTINUE TO BE A WINNING COMBINATION
FOR THIS FIRM
“Block O’Toole & Murphy got me an astounding result and really took
care of me. They are the best,” says one of BOM’s satisfied clients.
These sentiments are frequently echoed in the halls of one of
the premier personal injury law firms in New York. Indeed, Block
O’Toole & Murphy has consistently been recognized by the
media, its peers and professional associations as one of the best
in the business. The firm has a reputation of being fierce, when
appropriate, yet fair in the handling of their well-prepared cases.
The attorneys have all earned numerous accolades and awards
for their successes. This year, Jeffrey A. Block, Daniel P. O’Toole,
Stephen J. Murphy, S. Joseph Donahue and Scott C. Occhiogrosso
have again been named to the New York Super Lawyers list, and
David L. Scher to the Rising Stars list.
Why Block O’Toole & Murphy? It’s still the results.
In 2013, Block O’Toole & Murphy amassed more than $100 million
in results for their clients. The firm has published more seven-figure
settlements than any other firm in New York State in both 2012 and 2013,
according to The New York Law Journal. The firm of 10 lawyers has now
generated more than $750 million in recoveries for their injured clients.
Partner O’Toole, a trial attorney who is known for his spellbinding
summations, earned the largest personal injury settlement in the history
of the state in 2013: $22.5 million. “We are very proud of our firm's
accomplishments because with that recognition comes the understanding
that we are helping people through difficult times and providing them lasting
financial security,” says O’Toole. Murphy, a former homicide prosecutor who
draws a crowd when he is cross-examining a witness, and Scher, a talented
trial and appellate lawyer, argued the case of a pedestrian who suffered a
brain injury when struck by a van that jumped the sidewalk. The case resolved
in early 2014 for $8.8 million. “We were able to help good people in need,”
