Blaney McMurtry Announces New Partner Rafal Szymanski

March 1, 2016

Blaney McMurtry LLP  is pleased to announce that Rafal Szymanski has become a Partner of the firm.

Rafal is a pragmatic advocate.  He appreciates that the best, most efficient resolution to litigation often occurs outside the courtroom.  When a negotiated settlement cannot be reached, however, Rafal’s extensive litigation experience allows him to skillfully navigate his cases through the courtroom.  Judges have commended Rafal for the “most professional and efficient manner” in which he presents cases.

Rafal has a broad litigation practice focused on professional negligence and insurance litigation.  While he specializes in defending claims against police, Rafal has also represented financial advisors, appraisers, mortgage brokers, insurance agents and brokers, and engineers.  He also defends various personal injury matters, including occupiers’ liability, motor vehicle accident, and product liability claims.

Described as confident, creative, resourceful, and “graceful under pressure,” clients often look to Rafal for a fast and cost-effective disposition of claims.  His police clients also appreciate his experience and discretion when dealing with sensitive issues under the microscope of public scrutiny.
