ERIE, PA, July 1, 2010 -- Attorneys Tim George and Eric Purchase announce they have formed a new law firm, Purchase, George & Murphey, P.C., to better serve people who've been injured in Northwest Pennsylvania.

The new firm of Purchase, George & Murphey, P.C. promises to enhance service to its clients in three ways: it will focus its practice on the representation of injured people and thereby allow a more thorough and constantly updated knowledge of the law and techniques specific to the representation of injured people; it will limit the number of cases and clients it accepts to the most seriously injured and thereby allow for greater time and attention to each case and client; and it will combine the talents and resources of its founding attorneys to maximize service and results for its clients.

Purchase, George & Murphey, P.C. is committed to educating the public about personal injury cases, the insurance companies involved in defending personal injury cases and the practical realities of the litigation process.  Purchase, George & Murphey, P.C. offers an education based website at YourErieAccidentLaywers.com and its founding lawyers are the authors of a book entitled "The Ultimate Guide to Car Accident Cases in Pennsylvania: A Roadmap to Justice" which is available free to people who request it by visiting their website.

Purchase, George & Murphey, P.C. will represent clients in Erie County, Crawford County, Mercer County, Venango County, Warren County and Forest County who've been injured as a result of someone else's negligence, including injuries that result from car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, dog attacks and medical carelessness.

For the first 15 years of his career, Eric Purchase represented the region's largest insurance companies and businesses in cases and trials in Pennsylvania and as far away as Singapore.  He opened his personal injury practice which focused on representing individuals in 2006 and has been a sought after trial lawyer and speaker who is retained by other lawyers to try personal injury cases and who has presented seminars to other attorneys and insurance professionals on topics related to personal injury and trial skills.

Attorney Tim George began his career in 1992.  In 1996 he founded J. Timothy George, P.C.  Throughout his career Tim has focused on the representation of individuals, including those who've been injured by another's negligence.  Following the attacks of September 11, 2001, Tim joined the Pennsylvania Army National Guard and completed training at the Judge Advocate General's Law School and Legal Center in Charlottesville, Virginia.  In January, 2009, Tim was called to active duty in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and served for 11 months as trial counsel for the 28th Combat Aviation Brigade.

Together, Attorneys George and Purchase offer a combination of experience, perspective and synergy that make them unusually well qualified to represent injured people in the adversarial process of negotiating with and litigating against  the big insurance companies and their lawyers.
