    Bud came recommended to me by a friend, and was I glad that she referred him. Bud was very professional, protective, and knowledgeable. Not knowing how the whole divorce process works, Bud was the perfect guide to help me navigate through the stresses, with some humor too, which made me much more comfortable. Bud's advice was always helpful and he is a straight shooter, telling you things that you may not want to hear but need to. Bud didn't make me feel like he was my lawyer but that he was my friend. I would HIGHLY recommend Joseph "Bud" Murphy to anyone that is looking for a great divorce attorney.

    A divorce is a stressful time and having a knowledgeable attorney on your side makes a big difference. Joseph took the time to ensure he understood my concerns and did what he could to minimize the issues. Even when everything appeared to be going wrong and I was ready to give up, he was a strong advocate and kept me focused on the end goal. Through multiple court hearings, mediation sessions and email threads there was a consistency that was reassuring. Joseph is clearly well respected by other attorneys as was evidenced in his interaction in the court house sessions. Hopefully I never need to avail myself of his divorce services again but would gladly recommend him to others.

    Going through a divorce is an extrememly hard experience. Having the right person represent you makes all the difference in the world! From knowing that the legal advice you are receiving is coming from someone who is fully knowledgeable in the many facets of family law, to as importantly, knowing that person can be trusted! I was fortunate enough to have both in Joseph " Bud" Murphy. Bud is a consumate professional, while also lending the supportive shoulder that was very much needed at such a difficult period in my life. I always knew that no matter the time of day, I could always depend on Bud! He was never to busy to answer my emails, to take the time to explain the process of what needed to be done, and ALWAYS worked for my best interest! He brought a humanity to the table, always showing caring and respect in the most difficult stages of a long and treacherous divorce! As an attorney he is top notch, but to surpass that as a human being would be difficult! Yet Bud does that with ease! Rarely, do you hear people say that their divorce attorney is their friend, but because Bud cares about his clients, and their children as people, he goes out of his way to show compassion, as well as ,provide the best legal represetation available!

    There are not enough positive allolades that I could bestory upon Bud! He truly is a master at "putting his client's first", which can be a rare commodity in any spectrum of business today. He made sure that I was protected, and fought for me to have the most postive outcome in a very contentious divorce. Bud's degree of professionalism is unsurpassed and he is truly there for his client every step of the way! No attorney could be more committed to his clients welfare!

    If you find yourself in the unfortunate position of needing a family law attorney, I would highly recommend Joseph "Bud" Murphy. He is the best of the best! I will be forever grateful for his kindness, knowledge, professionalism, and continued diligence on my behalf!
