George Murphy and Cathy Oliver Murphy
Classmates George Murphy and Cathy Oliver met at BC Law in 1976. They moved to Philadelphia after graduation and married in 1983.
George is a partner and director in the Products Liability practice at Gibbons P.C. He has about 40 years of trial experience in the state and federal courts around the country and focuses in the defense of products liability, mass tort, class action, and catastrophic injury/death cases. He is a lecturer/presenter on various aspects of his practice areas and also sits as an arbitrator and mediator.
Cathy is recently retired from the U.S. Department of Labor where she was honored with the Arnow award for distinguished service. She began her career in the DOL as a staff attorney in 1980 and ultimately rose to the rank of Regional Solicitor.
George and Cathy have two sons, Matt and Mark. Both followed in their parents’ footsteps and attended BC Law! They are currently practicing law in New York City.
In addition to having fun with their grandchildren, George and Cathy enjoy traveling, playing golf, and skiing. They look forward to catching up with classmates at our reunion this fall.
