Our Philosophy & Practice Areas

Founding members D. Elizabeth Walker and John J. Murphy have spent their entire careers litigating cases in Maryland and Washington, D.C. While they have focused their practice primarily on the defense of healthcare providers who render care and life-saving interventions, they are experienced with a history of impressive results in other civil litigation matters including, but not limited to, wrongful death actions, survival claims, personal injury, commercial, construction, corporate and general litigation matters. Today, the attorneys at Walker, Murphy & Nelson, LLP represent clients in a wide array of litigation matters including:

- Trial advocacy

- Long-Term Care Defense

- Professional Liability Defense

- Civil Litigation

As litigation counsel, our philosophy is to prepare cases for trial from day one, assuring that our clients are in the strongest possible posture for trial should creative attempts at resolution prove unsuccessful. And, while our role as advocates is to deliver results for our clients, we are cognizant of the challenges litigation imposes upon them. Whether it is defending you individually, your business, or your career, at Walker, Murphy & Nelson, LLP we focus on each client's individual needs to assure that they are addressed and the client receives the quality legal representation that they deserve.
