Files and McMurchie, the original law firm, was formed in Sacramento in 1952 when two Stanford Law School graduates Tom Files and Don McMurchie joined forces to open a general, civil practice partnership. Since it’s formation, the firm experienced steady growth. Today, there are full service California law offices in Sacramento and Fresno allowing the firm to handle cases venued throughout Northern California, from Bakersfield to the Oregon border, including the entire Central Valley and Bay Area.
The firm is divided into three practice pods all of which involve litigation. The pods focus primarily on the defense of workers’ compensation matters, pursuit of civil subrogation remedies in connection with on-the-job injuries, and liability defense including most areas of employment and tort law.
