Peter Murphy is a shareholder in the Ft. Myers office. Over the last 40 years, he has handled all areas of personal injury defense with an emphasis on product liability, professional liability and other complex general liability claims. A great many of the cases Peter handles involve claims of significant injury and wrongful death.

Some of the insurance carriers he has represented over his years of practice include: CNA, Lloyd's of London, AIG, Liberty Mutual Insurance Company, Zurich Insurance Company, State Farm Insurance Company, Allstate Insurance Company and Travelers Insurance Company.
