Our Attorneys Have Extensive Experience in Criminal and Personal Injury Law

Since 2010, the attorneys of Purchase, George & Murphey have been representing the rights and interests of the residents of Erie and Northwest Pennsylvania. Our attorneys and case managers each have decades of experience handling personal injury and criminal cases. Our firm has been honored by numerous peer- and client-reviewed awards, including an AV-Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell, a 10.0 Superb rating, a Client’s Choice Award from Avvo, recognition on the Pennsylvania Super Lawyers list, and inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America

Our firm regularly secures maximum compensation in the personal injury matters that we handle. We often recover the full policy limits of the applicable insurance coverages, which in many cases can total into the six-figure range. In some of these situations, our firm was referred to the legal matter or called in by the attorney or firm handling the case to serve as co-counsel, lending our expertise and experience in the Pennsylvania courts. 

Our firm also regularly secures favorable results on behalf of clients in criminal matters that we handle, including having clients’ charges withdrawn by the prosecution or dismissed by the court. We have extensive experience challenging aspects of the prosecution’s case, including moving to have critical state evidence — such as breathalyzer test results, lab tests, and purported confessions — excluded as unreliable or otherwise inadmissible. 

We utilize a team approach for each case that we handle. Our firm’s staff includes former prosecutors, former insurance defense attorneys, and former claims supervisors. We collaborate on each legal dispute to ensure that we reach a strategy that serves a particular client’s needs and goals. If we accept your referral, you can trust that we do so because we have the expertise and resources to properly handle the case. We purposely limit our firm’s caseload so that our attorneys and staff can devote the attention and resources that each client deserves. 

We Keep You in the Loop of Your Client’s Case

At Purchase, George & Murphey, we understand the gravity of the decision to refer out a client’s case to another attorney or law firm. Referring out a client’s legal matter isn’t just about collecting a check for a referral fee. You are trusting another attorney and law firm to expertly handle your client’s case. Your decision of which firm and attorney to refer your client to reflects on you. If the firm you’ve referred the case to does a good job, it reflects well on you in the eyes of your client. 

We know how critical it is that you have good communication with us after you’ve referred a case. When you choose us for a referral, you won’t have to worry about never hearing from us until you receive your referral fee. Instead, you can expect us to:

  • Provide regular status updates.
  • Give notice of important events, such as mediations or trial dates.
  • Forward details about progress, such as updates on settlement negotiations or plea bargaining. 
  • Reports during a mediation, arbitration, or trial.

Our goal is to make sure that you always know what is going on with the case you have referred to us and never have to wonder about the quality of work we are doing on behalf of your client. 

Our firm is also prepared to co-counsel with you on cases, including if you need local Pennsylvania counsel as an out-of-state attorney to help guide you through our state’s court system and local rules, or if you want to bring in our firm’s expertise to help with a particular issue or proceeding in your client’s legal matter.
