John's Biography

419-624-3125

Our system of dispute resolution is the most successful and enviable in the world.  That fact places a duty on us.  We must be forever vigilant.  Only a vigilant public and bar can keep our system on track to justice.

When a client hires an attorney, the client is trusting the lawyer to provide the best judgment, loyalty and effort on the client's behalf.  It is an honor to be selected, to have someone believe in you enough, to place that much trust in your skills and knowledge.  I put my all in everyday to earn and keep the client's trust.

John T. Murray:   John received his Juris Doctorate from the Pettit College of Law at Ohio Northern University in 1979.  He has earned a reputation as a lawyer who is strong supporter of the rights of consumers whether it involves an individual wrong doing or a class action.  He has been an active member of the National Association of Consumer Advocates.  John is also experienced in commercial law and securities litigation.  A member of the Murray family, he also holds a B.S. degree from the University of Dayton.
