Jeffrey A. Block founded what is now known as Block O’Toole & Murphy, LLP in 1989, after graduating from Brooklyn Law School. Early on, Mr. Block was determined to make his mark in the courtroom, practically sprinting up the courthouse steps as a young lawyer to wage a battle on behalf of the underdog.
Since then, his career has been marked by a series of highlights and remarkable results, yielding more than one-hundred resolutions that exceed one-million dollars. His successes have been underpinned by two consistent themes: outwork your adversary and prepare every case like it is the most important case in the office. This dogged approach has served the clients of this gifted trial lawyer quite well.
Today, Mr. Block is highly regarded by the bench and bar. He is often called upon by fellow trial attorneys to serve as trial counsel on their most significant cases. He has handled cases for clients that were referred to him by both judges and courthouse employees that respect his legal acumen.
Mr. Block handles some of the firms most significant construction accidents, tractor trailer accidents, medical malpractice cases, premises liability cases and motor vehicle accidents. While his practice is not confined to any particular area of personal injury law, there is industry-wide respect for Mr. Block’s efforts and achievements on behalf of injured construction workers.
