NEWS RELEASE Ohio State Bar Association Honors Dennis E. Murray Sr., for 50 Years of Exemplary Service to the Legal Profession
(SANDUSKY, Ohio) - On Wednesday, April 10, 2013 the Ohio State Bar Association held an annual meeting for District 10 at Kalahari. This district comprises more than one-thousand (1,000) attorneys, all of whom are members of the Ohio State Bar Association and also provide legal representation in Erie County, Lorain County, Huron County, Richland County as well as the counties of Holmes, Ashland, Medina, and Wayne. During the annual meeting, the Ohio State Bar Association President, Judge Patrick F. Fischer, honored Dennis E. Murray Sr., one of the Senior Partners at the law firm of Murray & Murray Co., L.P.A., for his 50th year of providing continuous legal services to those communities.
It was noted that Dennis E. Murray, Sr. reached that impressive distinction while still very actively continuing his practice of law with Murray & Murray at the highest level. In the past years Mr. Murray has represented individuals for their protection in jury trials and in the appellate practices in virtually tens of hundreds of cases, both before Ohio State Courts and the federal courts. Mr. Murray’s cases, for example, are believed to have been decided in more instances by the Ohio Supreme Court, than any other practicing attorney in the State of Ohio.
Dennis Murray, Sr. earned his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Michigan Law School and his Bachelor of Arts degree from the College of The Holy Cross. He has been a licensed and practicing plaintiffs’ trial lawyer since 1963 and he is also a licensed Certified Public Accountant. He is a member of the Bars of the States of Ohio, Florida, and Michigan and is a member of the Ohio Society of Certified Public Accountants.
During his acceptance, Dennis noted that the true award was not for him. But rather, it is an award which recognizes his obligation to the thousands of people who have helped him during those 50 years; especially his wife of more than 52 years, Peggy Murray for whom he expressed his unending gratitude and true appreciation. Dennis noted that the award is a testament to the assistance that was given to him by his parents, his father Emmett Murray, a deceased but also long-serving lawyer and partner, and his mother Florence Murray. Dennis continued that he was deeply indebted to his daughter Elizabeth Murray Newman and her husband Mark; and to, all of his past and present partners; his sons and daughters that are also his partners at Murray and Murray, son Dennis Murray Jr. and his wife Martha, son Charlie Murray and his wife Michelle, his daughter and law partner Margaret Mary Murray, daughter and law partner Florence Murray and her husband Preet; and to his cousins and law partners John and Susan Murray, Pat and Louise Murray, retired partners Tom and Ann Murray and James T. and Shirley Murray; as well as his brothers and former law partners Jerry “Lightfoot” Murray and the late Michael T. Murray and Tami; niece and law partner Leslie Murray and her husband Alan; and, his nephew and law partner James L. and his wife Courtney Murray; all of his associate attorneys, secretaries and paralegals, especially attorney Donna Evans, secretaries Danielle Pepa and Delores Flohr, and paralegal Rhonda Rice. In closing, Dennis thanked all of his teachers, the thousands of clients who were kind enough and had enough confidence in him to seek his representation, all of the very special and honorable judges before whom he has appeared, and all of the thousands of jurors who have rendered such remarkable services over that entire 50 year period.
