Anthony Murgatroyd attended St. John's University, and the University of London. In 1989, he graduated Rutgers University School of Law.

After graduating law school, Anthony Murgatroyd served as the Clerk for a Judge in the Superior Court of New Jersey. He then worked the next three years as trial counsel for a Morris County AV rated firm, which is the highest rating given, where he specialized in the defense of complex legal and professional malpractice claims. After that, he served as house counsel to a major insurance company, handling personal injury, automobile accident, and product liability claims.

Working for the insurance company he gained first-hand knowledge of how insurance companies handle injury claims. He started his own firm so he could use that same knowledge to help people who are injured--people who were now going up against the insurance companies themselves. As former house counsel to a major insurance company, Anthony Murgatroyd knows what to expect, and how to prepare your case for success.

Since 1998, Anthony J. Murgatroyd, has represented the rights of injury victims and financially damaged consumers.

The Murgatroyd Law Group is a personal injury firm with many resources. We have a former Director of Rehabilitation on our full time staff. She brings to the Group her experience and understanding of the rehabilitation process, her passion as a patient advocate, and her expertise in interpreting complex medical records. In addition to our valued staff, we work carefully with a team of private investigators, experts, and evaluators and other professions to deliver the best results for your case.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
