With litigation, as with all legal matters we handle, our focus is on our client’s needs and objectives. Our approach to each case is customized based on what is important to you, including your desired outcome and the goals you wish to achieve. We are dedicated to safeguarding your resources as well as your legal rights. So, our first step is to evaluate whether litigation is the most cost effective option for your situation.

At Plachta, Murphy & Associates we believe that diligent preparation is key to the successful resolution of litigated cases.
