Experience Counts

Built on a long history as a litigation law firm, the attorneys and litigation support team at Murphy Pearson regularly help clients navigate complex legal systems for resolving disputes. Whether a two-party, business lawsuit in a local court or complex, multi-jurisdictional litigation, our approach pairs experienced lead lawyers with a team that includes the right mix of expertise and support to efficiently and effectively represent your interests. We handle matters covering a wide range of practices and industries and are particularly known for our representation of clients facing professional liability claims.

A Diligent Approach

Regularly appearing in state and federal courtrooms throughout Washington and California, we prepare fastidiously to represent your interests aggressively for favorable results. We value ongoing communication with you throughout the course of your matter to keep case strategies aligned with your risk tolerance and objectives. Whether your dispute settles early or goes to verdict (or appeal), we’ll stand by you with practical advice to serve your overarching business and personal goals.

Complex Litigation, Mass Torts & Class Action Lawsuits

Complex litigation and mass tort lawsuits are subject to intricate legal procedures, often in an array of state and federal courts. Many times, individual cases begin on a small scale in a variety of local and state courts. While these cases may arise in disparate venues, they are frequently consolidated or coordinated for the purpose of achieving a more streamlined process and predictable results. Such matters can be procedurally daunting and labor intensive, requiring experienced litigators with the acumen and staffing muscle necessary to wage an effective contest.

Our firm has the experience, resources, skills and vision essential to serve as national lead counsel or as regional and local trial counsel for plaintiffs and defendants involved in complex litigation matters and class action lawsuits. Having honed our due diligence process to a science, we employ advanced case management practices that combine insights gained from years of experience with the latest technologies.

Trusted by Lawyers

Considered by many in legal circles as “the lawyers’ lawyers,” we take pride in the fact that numerous lawyers and judges – our legal industry peers – trust us to handle their matters. We are known for our thorough preparation, professional approach, creative strategies and formidable representation. Whether serving as co-counsel or representing a lawyer client, our collaborative style earns respect from colleagues.
