About Lipe Lyons Murphy Nahrstadt & Pontikis, Ltd.

Lipe Lyons Murphy Nahrstadt & Pontikis was founded after the five name partners, with decades of experience, departed from their former firm together in order to better serve their long-standing clients.  A testament to the relationships that the firm builds with each of its clients, the firm and its clients work in partnership to maximize the value afforded to each client.  This dedication to client service serves as the foundation of every firm undertaking.

Their case handling philosophy is simple.  They investigate and evaluate cases promptly and accurately.  They work closely with their clients in order to determine the most effective and efficient way to resolve a dispute.  They attempt to resolve cases on a fair and equitable basis as soon as possible, with minimal expense to their clients.  If a fair and equitable resolution cannot be reached, they are ready, willing and able to take a case to verdict.  Collectively, the name partners of the firm have tried more than 100 cases to verdict.
