Murphy Battista LLP has been successfully representing accident victims across British Columbia since 1982. We started out with a main office based in Vancouver but we believe it is important to be easily accessible to our clients. Therefore, we have taken the step of opening offices in the Okanagan including Kelowna and Vernon.
The contact lawyer for our Vernon office is Bill Dick. Bill is a long time resident of the Okanagan and an exceptional lawyer. Recognized by Best Lawyers Canada™ (2010-15), Bill has over 20 years of experience helping injured people get their lives back through successful litigation, mediation, and arbitration.
The Okanagan office will enjoy support from the lawyers and staff in our Kelowna office (Keri Grenier and Matt Van Nostrand) as well as our Vancouver office including founding-partner Joe Murphy, Q.C. and Scott Stanley.
Murphy Battista only acts for victims and plaintiffs in motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice and insurance law cases. We focus on doing excellent, caring work for our clients and their families with the goal of helping them get their lives back. We are honoured to enjoy a high rate of referrals from people who are sufficiently impressed with our work to suggest that other people hire us.
Using this simple approach, the firm has grown to 22 lawyers and approximately 40 support staff. With our Vernon office, we continue to extend our reach and offer the expertise that we have accumulated through our highly successful Vancouver practice to clients throughout the Okanagan.
A serious accident can completely derail your life. The inability to work, frustrations and anxiety associated with a long rehabilitation period, and the psychological impact of a permanent disability can be very challenging. This affects not only the injured person but also their families and loved ones. After taking care of the immediate legal requirements to protect and preserve our clients’ rights, our first concern is to support our clients through the recovery process. Once we are satisfied our clients have the access to the care and resources they need to get them on the road to recovery, we turn our full attention to the liability and compensation issues that need to be resolved so that our clients (and their families) can get their lives back.
Murphy Battista LLP has handled some of the toughest cases decided in BC in terms of establishing an injured person’s right to compensation. We have also handled three of the largest personal injury and insurance awards in BC history with other cases in the top ten.
