History of the firm

The senior members of the firm have worked together for most of their professional careers. Robert Murphy, Richard Riley, and Susan Donnelly Murphy all began their legal careers in the early 1980's at Murphy & Mitchell, P.C., an insurance defense firm founded by Walter G. Murphy, one of the most well-respected defense attorneys of his era. Since the establishment of Murphy & Riley, P.C. in 1993 by Walter Murphy, Robert Murphy, and Richard Riley, the firm has gradually but steadily expanded in size and scope of services. Murphy & Riley is an efficiently structured litigation firm made up of extraordinarily talented trial attorneys and litigation paralegals, with the skill and capacity to serve the needs of all our clients, large and small.


Though the firm has grown in size, we have retained those elements of our "personality" and style which have become our trademarks for success—efficiency, responsiveness, expertise and commitment to personal service.
