To determine whether we are the right firm for you, we encourage you to read on about our history, work, and mission, and to explore the wealth of resources on our website.

A History of Defending the Florida Community

Originally from Boston, Mr. Lawlor received his B.A. from Barry University in Miami and his law degree from Nova Southeastern University in 1994. After several years of trying cases at local litigation firms in South Florida, Mr. Lawlor opened his own practice in 1996, and, in 1998, eventually began what is now the Law Firm of Lawlor, White & Murphey.

Today, the firm is made up of five dedicated and talented lawyers who are backed by a staff of exceptional paralegals, clerks, and administrative personnel. Our entire team is dedicated to helping Florida residents and their families recover from injuries and other losses caused by the negligence of others. Our team has helped our firm grow and flourish over the years through diligence, perseverance, and innovation.

We’ve tried more than 100 jury trials in our pursuit of securing the settlements our clients need to medically and financially recover and move on with their lives. In every one of our cases, we utilized the full extent of our knowledge, resources, and experience to get the client the result they deserve. Thanks to our dedication and hard work, we are able to proudly point to a history of success with our cases. Throughout Florida and beyond, we are now recognized as leading authorities in personal injury law.

The Personal Attention of a Family Firm, the Resources, and Experience of a Large Firm

At Lawlor, White & Murphey, we are committed to providing each and every one of our clients the best of both worlds—the compassion and individual attention of a small firm, and the resources, experience, and power of a large firm.

Every single case that passes through our hands is treated with compassion, attention to detail, and expertise. We’ve helped clients of all backgrounds who have suffered from a variety of different kinds of accidents, including:

Whatever type of accident has caused you or your family injury, our team of leading industry attorneys are ready to take on your case. Pulling from our diverse backgrounds, experience, and history of successes, we will work fearlessly and relentlessly to protect you and your family’s rights and provide you with access to all available avenues for recovery.

We believe quality legal assistance should be affordable and within reach for everyone. That’s why strive to make our legal services available to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay costly fees. The majority of our work is done on a contingency basis, meaning our clients don’t owe us a penny until we successfully recover compensation for them.

A Mission to Improve Florida and the World around Us

There are plenty of personal injury law firms in Florida driven by the primary mission of securing the maximum payout. At Lawlor, White & Murphy, we are proud to say we are not one of them.

We are driven by a passion for public safety and a dedication to our community. We firmly believe everyone should have access to the support and compensation they need to recover and move forward with their lives after being wrongfully injured. We don’t believe insurance companies and massive corporations should be able to bully Floridians and their families into unfair settlements or frighten them into giving up their rights. We hope history will remember our firm as the compassionate firm that stood up to profit-driven corporations and changed the public’s perception of personal injury lawyers.

Our firm is committed to giving back to our community in ways that go beyond offering exceptional legal services. We are involved in local charities and organizations throughout Florida, including The Boys & Girls Club, the YMCA, the Guardian Ad Litem Program (representing abused and neglected children), and the COSAC Foundation (providing homeless relief).

We serve most of South Florida including but not limited to Boca Raton, Coconut Creek, Cooper City, Coral Springs, Dania Beach, Deerfield Beach, Hallandale Beach, Hollywood, Lauderdale Lakes, Margate, Miramar, Oakland Park, Parkland, Pembroke Pines, Plantation, Pompano Beach, Port St. Lucie, Tamarac, Venice, West Palm Beach and Weston.
