I have always had a passion for the law, even as a young girl, I dreamed of one day becoming a lawyer. While in law school, I was not sure what kind of law practice I wanted to pursue. Upon graduating and passing the bar examination in 2008, I was offered a position at the Firm as an associate attorney. This position involved representing individuals who were injured in all types of accidents.

While I was in law school, I worked clerkships in various areas of law including Wills & Trusts, Probate, Family Law, Criminal Law, Construction Law, Health Law, and general litigation. While I enjoyed those experiences, I can honestly say that none of those practice areas appealed to me as much as my experience representing injured victims.

I have spent my entire legal career representing injured individuals and I would not have it any other way. There is something incredibly challenging and satisfying to me about representing an individual and getting them what they are entitled to, oftentimes outnumbered by a team of high-paid lawyers who are working for the insurance industry.

The level of service a client can expect from myself and my firm simply cannot be compared to the level of service you would receive at a big law firm where your case is just a number. I personally sit down with each and every one of my clients to review their cases with them and learn all of the pertinent details. I speak with my clients frequently and I KNOW their cases. This gives me a huge advantage over my competition. I can assure you that my philosophy in the practice of law is shared by my partners as well as my staff.

The law firm of Legler, Murphy & Battaglia, LLP, has been representing the rights of the injured in Manatee and Sarasota Counties for over 30 years and the lawyers of this office have over 100 years of collective legal experience. We have earned the trust of thousands of clients who we have represented over the years.

If you are looking for a personal injury or workers compensation lawyer who will offer you personalized service, accountability, and aggressive representation look no further – I can help.

I had the privilege of working with Kelli Martinez as my personal injury attorney, and I can't express enough how grateful I am for her exceptional guidance and support throughout the entire process. From the moment I first contacted her to the conclusion of my case, Kelli demonstrated an unwavering commitment to ensuring my rights were protected and that I received the compensation I deserved. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking legal representation for personal injury cases.

Mr. Murphy and his team were amazing to work with. In a stressful situation they were on top of making sure I understood my options and walking me through the process when I’d stress out. He fought to make sure I was fairly treated and not just another person swept under the rug and forgot about. I highly recommend him if you ever need and hope to have a timely resolution and team that is top notch.

I am very grateful to Ed Murphy for accepting my case against work compensation, otherwise I wouldn't have had another doctor for a second examination and I would have been at home without being able to work again. I am thankful for all the work Ed and his assistant Jessica have done in my case. I am very happy with the service, every time I called I was treated very nicely by the front desk staff, Kelly. Thanks

I highly recommend Mr. Murphy. He immediately responded to the issues I was having with my workers compensation case. He reached out to me in a timely manner. I was always able to get ahold of him via the phone and emails. I never felt rushed in our meetings and conversations. He was professional and courteous. I am very satisfied how quickly I received my settlement.

I highly recommend contacting Ed Murphy with your worker's compensation case. From day one he took the time to explain all aspects of the case, listened to my questions and concerns, and kept me up-to-date as the case progressed. I believe he was able to achieve the best possible outcome with my case, and I couldn't be happier to have worked with him. I had never hired an attorney before, but he immediately put me at ease and had my trust. Great experience from start to finish!
