We Fight for Those Who Cannot Fight for Themselves

After suffering serious injuries in a catastrophic accident, you need an advocate: Someone who will protect your interests in the legal process, help you understand your options, and fight to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

At Restivo & Murphy LLP, we have more than 60 years of combined experience serving clients in catastrophic injury claims. Based in Garden City, we represent clients throughout New York City’s 5 boroughs and surrounding counties, including Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Orange and Dutchess.

  • Serving in every vantage point in personal injury law matters: In addition to our years of experience representing injured plaintiffs in personal injury claims, our attorneys have significant experience defending personal injury cases on behalf of insurance carriers and municipalities. This perspective of having sat in our adversaries' seats has proven extremely beneficial in obtaining maximum results for our clients who have been injured in accidents.
  • Serving clients throughout the 5 boroughs of New York: We understand the difficulties and limitations many accident victims face in traveling to meet with an attorney. At Restivo & Murphy LLP, we will travel to you in your time of need to ensure that your rights are protected immediately. We travel anywhere throughout the 5 boroughs of New York as well as Westchester, Nassau and Suffolk counties.
  • Maximizing compensation for our clients: In addition to handling claims referred by past clients, we receive a significant number of cases referred by other attorneys who recognize our ability to maximize our clients' claims. We know the law and the process, and we put in the work to understand the complex medical needs of injured clients so we can present the full cost of damages to the juries in our cases. We will not rest until you get every penny of compensation you deserve for the injuries and losses you have suffered.

Advocates — Counselors at Law

One of the keys to our success is the special care we give our clients. At Restivo & Murphy LLP, we view our role as attorneys to have 2 parts: We are advocates who fight to protect our clients' interests, and we are counselors who help our clients understand their rights, options, and the legal process.

In many ways, the role of counselor is the more important of the two. Our lawyers take the time with all clients to put them at ease, to help them know what to expect, and to build strong cases that result in the best possible compensation award available under the law.
