Since 1982, Murphy Battista LLP has tenaciously represented accident victims through our offices in Vancouver. We extended our capacity to help individuals struggling with personal injury or insurance related matters through the opening of a brand new Office in Kelowna. Our Kelowna office is led by Bill Dick – long time resident of the Okanagan and 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. Bill is joined by Keri Grenier, well known Kelowna personal injury lawyer and author of the popular Castanet column INJURYwise, and Matthew (Matt) Van Nostrand who returns to his home town after practicing with a large general insurance firm in Vancouver.
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 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 new Kelowna office, we plan to bring the resources and expertise that we have accumulated through our highly successful Vancouver practice to clients in 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 overwhelming. 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 help guide our clients through the recovery process. Once we are satisfied our clients have the support 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 can get their lives back.
Murphy Battista LLP has handled some of the toughest cases decided in BC in terms of establishing a 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.
