Mr. McCarthy is a tenacious investigator. Whether conducting an initial investigation of an accident or malpractice, consulting with experts, tracking down documents and witnesses, or taking depositions, he follows eachlead until we have every piece of evidence necessary to win.

It’s that determination that brings multi-million dollar results


His drive to constantly move cases forward, and our custom case management system helps us to obtain maximum results in the shortest possible time for our clients.

Daniel C. Murphy

Daniel C Murphy received his law degree from the University of Cork, Ireland and then studied on his own for the New York Bar Exam. He passed the two-day exam on his first try.

He came to New York to seek a position where he would get to try accident cases for accident victims. That brought him to McMAHON | McCARTHY where he second seated Mr. McMahon during numerous trials. He quickly learned the skills necessary to successfully try cases and has been winning cases throughout NYC ever since.

He has also argued and won appeals.

Along with his lilting Irish broge, Mr. Murphy brought with him the gifts of story telling and the ability to connect with jurors for which his birth country are famous. In only a few years this has resulted in many verdicts and settlements for our clients, including verdicts of $4.2 million and $3.1 million in one year alone.


Mr. Murphy is admitted to practice in all New York State Courts and the Federal Court for the Southern District of New York.

He is fluent in the Irish language.
