BC Litigation Lawyers For Plaintiffs

Murphy Battista LLP is one of BC’s oldest and most respected law firms, having acted only for plaintiffs for over 40 years. Our firm has a long-standing reputation for taking on difficult cases for people who have been injured, sexually or physically abused, or financially harmed.

We’ve always been litigation-focused and will not hesitate to take cases to trial if that is the best way to meet our clients’ needs. Our trial success is well-documented and sets us apart. This includes extensive experience advocating for those injured due to inadequate medical, dental, or other forms of health care. Our firm also has a robust class action team with experience successfully challenging governments and corporations to secure justice for class members.

We provide legal representation to clients from all over the province, all over the country and all over the world. Many of our clients do not live in Vancouver but have retained us because of our legal skills.

Our Approach

We offer a combination of client service strengths, including attention to detail and meticulous preparation in every case.

Whether resolving claims through negotiation, mediation, or court, understanding the evidence, how the law applies to your case, and effective strategy are the hallmarks of how we achieve success for our clients.

Active Involvement With You

We start by carefully listening to you and your goals, and we do everything we can to anticipate and meet your needs beyond those directly related to your legal claim. We are known for going above and beyond and will treat you like we would want to be treated. That means staying in touch and keeping you up to date on the progress of your case.

Forward-Looking Service

Your well-being is our priority. We take time to get to know you so that we can better assess the full impact of what has happened in your life, not just for today but for your future. That way, we can ensure that your financial compensation will meet the full range of your needs.

Teamwork in Complex Cases

We advocate a team approach to your file, which means that the lawyer who has primary responsibility for your file can draw internally upon a wide range of skills and experience that reflect our lawyers’ varied backgrounds and accomplishments. We ensure that the full range of our firm’s resources is available to you if any special needs develop in your case.

We also tap into an outstanding network of external relationships with professionals and consultants in medical, rehabilitative, counseling and vocational fields, as well as the financial services to protect your practical and long-term interests. At the same time, we work toward the best available legal result.

Working with us allows you to mobilize an entire team of professionals, not just one lawyer, on your behalf.
