  • Theodore John Murphy

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known John in a professional capacity since 2002. I have opposed him in court and worked together with him in a number of endeavors. He is a consummate professional, very knowledgeable, skilled and a zealous advocate for his clients. Other attorneys often ask for his opinion and guidance.
