Recognized by Best Lawyers Canada™ (2013-2020) and appointed Queen’s Counsel in 2018, Bill has over 25 years of experience representing plaintiffs in serious, complex personal injury claims, including medical malpractice and insurance disputes both at trial and on appeal. He also has expertise handling complex commercial litigation, construction law disputes, and representing plaintiffs in class action lawsuits.

Getting Your Life Back: It’s Your Goal and Ours
Murphy Battista LLP 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. From our Vernon and Kelowna offices, we 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.
