What It Means To Be a LWM Law Trial Lawyer

When talking with South Florida personal injury attorneys, it's important to understand that not all law firms are created equal. Although some attorneys refer to themselves as trial lawyers, they may only win you a small settlement that can't truly cover the cost of your injuries. Why? Because they want to avoid going to trial.

Lawlor White & Murphey is different. We'll discuss the details of your case with you to help you determine your smartest course of action, and if we believe that taking your case to trial will get the best results for you, then that's what we'll do. We have an excellent track record going up against individuals, large corporations, and insurance companies. When working with us, you'll find that our lawyers and case managers have the practical experience, resources, and compassion to handle your personal injury case.
