Will I owe attorney fees if I don't win?
No. A contingent fee means there will be no attorney fees unless you receive a settlement or verdict.
Will my case be handled by an associate or paralegal?
No. At Ford & Murphy we take a limited number of cases so we can give personal attention.
Will you come to my home?
Yes. There is no need to travel to our office. If the need arises, we can see you within hours of your first phone call.
Should I try to handle the claim on my own?
Never! Insurance companies profit by paying out as little as possible. You need an experienced lawyer to protect you and insure you receive fair compensation.

Absolutely. We have also strived to return all inquiries promptly and are happy to communicate by any means. Click Here to contact us.
Are there time limits to make claims?
Yes. Some notices must be filed within as little as 60 days. We handle all notice requirements for you.
If my case requires going to probate court, do you handle it?
Yes. Most personal injury firms farm out probate work to other lawyers. At Ford & Murphy, P.C. we handle your case ourselves from start to finish including all probate matters.
Will the insurance company send investigators to do surveillance and take videos and photographs and look at my social media?
Yes. It is very common for the insurance company to attempt to catch you doing things you say you cannot do. In order to protect yourself, you need to contact us immediately to discuss ways to take away or minimize any advantage the insurance company will attempt to gain.
