Attorney Brian Murphy: Putting Experience to Work in Mobile, AL

Attorney Brian MurphyBrian Murphy, who co-founded Braswell Murphy LLC in 2012, grew up in Phenix City, Alabama. He was born just across the border, in Columbus, GA.

Brian went to Auburn University, where he received his Bachelor's Degree in Political Science. From there, he went on to Cumberland School of Law, where he earned his juris doctorate and then was admitted to the Alabama State Bar.

Like his partner Kasie Braswell, Brian got his start working in a civil defense firm.  He defended clients across a broad spectrum of industries, including insurance companies, medical professionals, maritime, aviation and medical businesses. He obtained a wealth of experience in both state and federal courts in Alabama and several other states.

This experience gave him insight into how these big companies deal with claims against them - and the tactics they use to keep victims from receiving fair payment. He didn't want to devote his life to stopping injured people from getting fair compensation for their losses. He wanted to do all he could to help people in Alabama who have been injured or lost loved ones.

Clients have relied on Brian for help in matters before a number of federal agencies. He also has a depth of knowledge and experience representing victims of nursing home abuse and neglect.

Brian, who lives with his family in midtown Mobile, remains active in the community. He and his family attend Saint Mary Catholic Church in Mobile. He serves on several boards and committees with the local and state bar associations.
