Energized by Challenge


Murphy Pearson Bradley & Feeney is an accomplished law firm specializing in trial practice, litigation and business counseling. We thrive on challenge and take pride in a track record built on a vigorous, strategic approach to resolving complex cases. Small enough to provide personal attention to every client, yet large enough to fully staff complex cases, our firm focuses our practice on professional liability, product liability, catastrophic injuries, class actions/mass torts, intellectual property, white-collar defense, grand jury representation, internal corporate investigations, employment, taxation and business.

Our principled advocacy, combined with our exceptional legal knowledge and judgment, has produced successful outcomes in thousands of jury trials in state and federal courts across the nation.

  • James Lassart James Lassart obtained a complete defense verdict in favor of his attorney and law firm client: Randy Montesano. Haney accused Montesano of legal malpractice, professional negligence, breach of contract, and infliction of emotional distress. Haney claimed that Montesano should have challenged the jury selection process but did not do so. Montesano demurred arguing that Haney filed two identical complaints and did not state the facts sufficient to constitute a cause of action for attorney malpractice. Haney's complaint also exceeded the relevant statute of limitations period and Montesano argued that Haney could not prove actual innocence or exoneration. Elements that must be met in order to prove legal malpractice occurred. Haney represented himself in the current action and the Honorable Harold E. Kahn of San Francisco Superior Court granted Montesano's demurrer and dismissed the entire action.
