I was unfortunately accused of trespassing and subsequently arrested by a off-duty police office at a major local hotel. Mr. Patrick Murphy esq, was very sympathetic to my situation, while providing objective legal guidance that kept me focused during the difficult time. I called him on a Saturday afternoon, twice, and was able to schedule an appointment right away. We met to discuss the case the following Monday, during which he was very thorough and patient.
The amazing part was the day of the arraignment. He was clearly respected by those in the court. He was able to have my charge dismissed before arraignment, which was the best possible outcome I could have hoped for. Lastly he was able to have my case being the first case to be discussed before the judge to avoid the long wait in the court.
I am very glad to have him represent me, and I highly recommend his service. Lastly. his fee, as I confirmed with other criminal justice lawyers in the city, was very reasonable.
Pat did a great job for me. He was always readily available, returned calls on weekends, and was always willing to answer all my questions thoroughly and explain the entire process to me. He is affordable, reliable, and delivered the result we were hoping for.
Patrick Murphy provided first-class representation when I needed his help with a Boston-area shoplifting charge. He quickly grasped my situation and discussed the best course of action to move forward. He clearly had experience in the local court and knew his stuff. He was flexible and accommodating when a court-mix up required another appearance. Finally, on the big day, he delivered exactly what he had promised to do and the case was dismissed. Competent, trustworthy and effective, it was a pleasure working with him. While I never plan to need his services again, I'd highly recommend him to anyone in the future.
I had 3 charges against me. One for driving on a suspended license, one for driving uninsured and one for the actual citation itself. It looked terrible but mr. Murphy helped me thru it and I still have my license and can continue to serve my country. Really cant say how lucky and thankful I am to have had him by my side to fight for me. Highly recommended and knows his stuff. Thank you again for everything
I remember getting myself into some trouble, and not knowing who to talk to... or where to go. I called several attorneys in the boston, and north shore area. It seemed everyone wanted so much money. Most attorneys made my case sound like a bigger deal, then I thought it was. When I spoke to Patrick, he gave me such a great price. He sounded so sure of his knowledge of the system. He seemed to know this wouldn't be a hard case to beat, so he quoted me such a fair price.
I wasn't able to find parking for our first meeting. Patrick came down from the 3rd floor and hopped in my car, and there... we had the meeting. I appreciated and still do appreciate how thoughtful of him that was. He made the meeting happen on time, and with no parking cost to me.
There was one time, that he didn't return a text. For the most part I had to initiate all the follow ups. Besides that... he was awesome. If I ever need an attorney I would definitely use him again.
Attorney Murphy obtained the most favorable ruling possible in my case. I could not be more relieved, and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
I had a criminal complaint for Child Endangerment against me and was so scared of the charges since I had never been involved in a criminal case before. From the first time we met with Patrick Murphy he was amazing at calming the situation, explaining all the aspects of what was going on and preparing the case with me. When we appeared in court, he handled the situation perfectly and there were no charges filed and nothing on my record! I am so grateful for finding Patrick, trusting him with my case and now I continue to have a clean record thanks to him! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
I was in a situation with two females that falsely accused me of a crime. Patrick Defended me like a warrior. During the cross examination of the witness Patrick pulled out tactics I didn't know he had in him. He found holes in the victim's stories and depicted them in a way to make them seem not credible. I sat back with confidence in the courtroom watching Patrick deliver all the facts and securing a victory, a not guilty verdict for me. It was like David and Goliath and Patrick had the sling shot. From start to finish Patrick handled my case with a knowledgeable strategic approach. I can definitely say I was satisfied with his service. Thank You Patrick J. Murphy!
I hired Attorney Murphy when my ex-girlfriend filed a harassment prevention order against me in spite. This was a very delicate and difficult situation as I was dealing with someone vindictive who was trying to ruin my life. There were many layers of complexity that made my situation not the most ideal; however, Patrick would always hear me out and was very patient with me. He went into the case being diplomatic and negotiated an agreement with my ex, which given her volatile nature was quite impressive. He turned something that could have been distorted and twisted into a maximum permanent order, to a six month order that provided me assurances both that I would not be harassed by this woman, and also that I would be safe in public places. Overall, Patrick was affordable, honest, diplomatic as opposed to confrontational, and he did a great job. He believed in me and was also very sympathetic. I definitely recommend him to any and all young people experiencing situations that we could never envision.
I had a motor vehicle violation which was handled in a very efficient way. Attorney Patrick Murphy was very patient hearing the details of the case. He laid out the scenarios for me and gave me sound legal advice on how he was going to proceed. Once he was on the case, he got working right away and resolved my problem with the expected outcome. Would highly recommend Attorney Murphy.
