Michael Cordier Named Partner at Murphy Karber, Firm Gets New Name

 

Murphy Karber, a Phoenix construction, real estate and business law firm, announced it has added a third partner, Michael A. Cordier.

The firm also announced its new name, Murphy Karber Cordier PLC and unveiled a new logo. The firm will also use the trade name “MKC Law,” taking advantage of the State Bar of Arizona’s recent rule change.

In the late 1990s, Murphy and Cordier were partners at the former Phoenix firm of Robbins & Green, P.A.

“We are thrilled to add Michael and his legal skills and business acumen to the firm,” said Richard B. Murphy, founding partner of Murphy Karber Cordier PLC. “He will allow us to expand the firm’s services to areas we have not traditionally served.”

Cordier most recently served as the managing shareholder of the Phoenix office of DeConcini McDonald Yetwin & Lacy, P.C.

“Richard and I have known Michael since our undergraduate school days at the University of Arizona,” said Robert M. Karber, co- founding partner, Murphy Karber Cordier, PLC. “We are so pleased to have our long-time friend and respected colleague join the firm.”

Cordier represents a wide variety of businesses and individuals in commercial matters and often serves as an outside general counsel for businesses. His areas of focus include business and corporate law, employment and labor law, intellectual property, real estate and commercial transactions and litigation.

Start Your Transformation By Eating The Right Foods: Super Foods

While many take on the challenge of losing weight as a New Year’s resolution, some scour the web for quick and easy fixes such as diet pills or fasting. Who really has patience anymore in this era of instant gratification, right?Protect your body, increase your health!

But, the first step to losing weight is learning how to eat right. This means changing one’s eating habits and, of course, knowing which foods are best for you. This probably comes to no surprise, but it’s astonishing how many people are unable or unwilling to maintain the healthy way of dieting, which sometimes takes weeks, even months, to see noticeable results.

For those of you who are determined to cut the calories and become a healthier version of yourself, start your transformation by focusing within — repairing damaged cells and keeping your immune system strong.

How do you go about doing this? One way — one of the easiest ways — is consuming antioxidants and all of the necessary vitamins and minerals found within super foods. (But don’t forget to combine this with an active lifestyle and exercise.)

Antioxidants are vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that protect and repair cells from damage caused by free radicals — harmful molecules in the body. These molecules are so harmful, the damage caused by them could lead to chronic diseases such as atherosclerosis (the hardening of arteries), arthritis, heart disease and even cancer.

Antioxidants also fight off damage to your immune system, making it stronger, which will help you ward off colds and other infections.

So why wouldn’t you start healing and protecting your body now?

It’s time to start fighting back! Here’s a list of some super foods that will help you on your quest to a healthier life, attitude and body.
