Jeff Murphy Law
Victims’ Rights Scholarship, 2022
Jeff Murphy has been helping people for over 29 years by successfully defending the rights of injury victims and their families. His passion and skills to stand up for the rights of people who have been injured because of someone else’s negligence or malice are reflected in his success rate and ability to get his clients the compensation they need, are entitled to and deserve. Jeff Murphy knows that money cannot bring back a loved one who has unfairly passed nor can it give someone their abilities or health back after an injury or illness but he feels good knowing that he has made peoples’ lives better by protecting his clients’ financial health.
One of Jeff Murphy’s strengths is his ability to protect the underdog by standing up to big insurance companies that spend a lot of time, money and resources trying to pay out as little money as they can get away with – even if a victim of a personal injury truly needs more. Jeff Murphy has experienced the value his work brings to the lives of others and would like to support the education of a student who has similar ideals and goals for helping others. For this, the Jeff Murphy Law – Victims’ Rights Scholarship, 2020, has been created to help a student with these ideals and goals, with the cost of their education.
