The lawyers and legal assistants on our Legal Malpractice Law Group are all experienced and trained professionals with significant experience in prosecuting malpractice claims arising from attorney negligence. Our firm has earned the highest rating possible from other lawyers for both Legal Ability and Professional Ethics. In short, we have the experience and know-how to help you and your family get the compensation you need and deserve for your legal malpractice injuries and losses.

Our Legal Malpractice Law Group is lead by Attorney Ron Murphy, who is one of the few Board Certified Civil Trial Advocates in Connecticut and Massachusetts. Ron has been licensed to practice law in Connecticut since 1983 and Massachusetts since 1985.

Attorney Murphy is an Adjunct Instructor of Law at the University of Connecticut School of Law, where he currently teaches “Trial Advocacy” and where he previously taught “Legal Ethics and Professional Responsibility,” deals specifically with how lawyers and law firms are supposed to conduct business. Attorney Murphy is also a long time and active member of the two Connecticut Bar Association Committees that deal specifically with the conduct of lawyers: the Professional Discipline Committee, and the Professinal Ethics Committee. In addition, Attorney Murphy is a member of the Center for Professional Responsibility of the American Bar Association. Attorney Murphy draws on this knowledge and experience when representing the victims of Legal Malpractice.

Attorney Murphy is also: a graduate of the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College and now one of its Staff Instructors, where he teaches lawyers around the country how to get the maximum recovery for injured clients; an Elected Member of the Board of Governors for the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association (CTLA), which is the State's only organization of trial lawyers dedicated to representing the interests of people injured by accident or malpractice; one of the Staff Instructors at the Connecticut Bar Association's Trial Advocacy Institute; a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum (where membership is limited to attorneys who have won million and multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for clients); a designated "SuperLawyer" (an honor limited to no more that 5% of the lawyers in any state) in the areas of Personal Injury and Malpractice Law as chosen by his peers through a poll conducted by the national publication "Law and Politics"; a member of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America; and a member of the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys.

As you can see, Atty. Ron Murphy has the experience and background to successfully handle any serious claim involving an injury or loss caused by legal malpractice, attorney negligence, or law firm misconduct. But Ron does not work alone.

Atty. Roger Kaye is not only a lawyer, but is also a Licensed Physician and Board Certified Neurosurgeon. For many years prior to joining Advocates Law Firm, Dr. Kaye has been a practicing neurosurgeon with an active private medical practice. He graduated from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and was trained at the New York University-Bellevue Hospital in neurosurgery. He is a member of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons; American College of Surgeons; and the Congress of Neurological Surgeons. Since 1972, he has treated thousands of patients and also been involved as an expert witness on the issues of standard of care and causation related to medical malpractice claims. Obviously, Atty. Kaye's medical background gives Advocates Law Firm a unique ability to understand any legal malpractice claim that arises from the mishandling of an underlying personal injury or medical malpractice claim (as most often legal malpractice claims require us to prove the underlying case). Roger is a graduate of the University of Connecticut School of Law and a member of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association and the Association of Trial Lawyers of America.

In addition to our lawyers, our Legal Malpractice Law Group also has the help and support of three trained and experienced Legal Assistants: Kelly Peasley, Ellen Roche, and Joanna Carrasquillo. Kelly, Ellen, and Joanna assist the lawyer prosecuting your claim by: ordering records and bills (and following up on those orders), organizing those records and bills, obtaining reports and photographs, organizing pleadings filed in your case, scheduling depositions and other events related to your claim, fielding telephone calls related to your case and forwarding them to our attorneys if they can't answer the question, etc. In short, Kelly, Ellen, and Joanna work closely with both you and the lawyer assigned to your case to assure that your claim is prosecuted efficiently and professionally.
