Dennis's Biography

419-624-3000      dms@murrayandmurray.com

In the United States, someone is cheated by a commercial scheme every hour of every day; and it is our job to help them to stop these practices and to recover damages.  Plaintiff lawyers are the eyes for the courts since they are the only way that courts can have these problems called to their attention.

My first class action was more than 50 years ago and it was for the civil rights of women and persons of color .  In addition, we devoted enormous amounts of time and we invested substantial monies just so that a class of American consumers could finally collect damages.  Accordingly, Murray & Murray brought civil rights to the workplace, and we brought to a halt practices that had cheated people over decades.

My daily approach is to work on the most difficult matters the first thing every day. Our practice has been very beneficial for our clients and for me. I am proud of the fact that clients cannot spend any money at Murray & Murray. All of our legal services require that we first win for our clients, before we are paid anything, including all expenses which we freely advance.

Dennis E. Murray Sr.:  Dennis graduated from The University of Michigan Law School in 1963.  He is licensed to practice law in Ohio, and is also a certified public accountant and past bar examiner for the Supreme Court of Ohio, having lectured extensively  for the Ohio Association for Justice.
