BC Personal Injury Lawyers Focused on Your Recovery
Helping injured people is our mission and the foundation of everything we do.
Our lawyers work hard to recover the greatest amount possible for you on personal injury, professional negligence (medical malpractice), wrongful death, and insurance claims. Our law firm works just as hard to support your medical and emotional recovery.
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 the Vancouver area but have retained us because of our legal skills.
At Murphy Battista LLP we only act 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. Using this simple approach, we enjoy a high rate of referrals from people who are sufficiently impressed with our work to suggest that other people hire us. As a result, the firm has grown from 1982, when our founding partners, Joe Murphy, Q.C. and Joe Battista, Q.C. had the idea to start a client-focused personal injury law firm, to a firm that has 27 lawyers with offices in Vancouver, Surrey, Kelowna and Vernon.
A serious accident can completely derail your life. The inability to work, frustration and anxiety associated with a long rehabilitation period, and the psychological impact of a permanent disability can be overwhelming. This affects you as the injured person, but it also has an impact on your family and loved ones.
After taking care of the immediate legal requirements to protect and preserve your rights, our first concern is to help guide you through the recovery process. Once we are satisfied you have the support and resources you need to get you on the road to recovery, we turn our full attention to the liability and compensation issues that need to be resolved so that you have the financial resources you need to get your life back.

Murphy Battista LLP offers a combination of client service strengths including:
Legal Experience and Skill
Joe Murphy Q.C. and Joe Battista Q.C. each have more than 40 years of experience assisting clients with the resolution of complex accident and negligence claims, and each has a national reputation for excellence in client service.

Our third partner, J. Scott Stanley has consistently taken on cases perceived “unwinnable” by other lawyers and achieved positive results for our clients.

Active Involvement With You
We take an active role in helping you get your life back. A serious accident can have serious consequences for individuals and their families that go far beyond the challenges of physical recovery. We do everything we can to anticipate and meet client needs beyond those directly related to your legal claim. We are known for going above and beyond, and we will treat you like we would want to be treated.
You are not a file number to us. We take the time to get to know you so that we are better able to assess the full impact of an accident and the resulting injuries on your life, not just for today, but for your entire future. That way, we can ensure that your financial compensation will meet the full range of needs you are likely to face in the years to come.
Teamwork in Complex Accident Cases and Insurance Disputes
We advocate a team approach to your file which means that the lawyer who has primary conduct of your file can draw internally upon a wide range of skills and experience that reflect the varied backgrounds and accomplishments of our lawyers. We make sure 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 to put together a medical team to make sure that your practical and long-term interests are protected while we are working toward the best available legal result.
Working with us gives you the opportunity to mobilize an entire team of professionals on your behalf, not just one lawyer.
