After reviewing several lawyers’ comments on Avvo, Mr. Murphy appeared to be the most concise in his answer regarding intoxication. I contacted Mr. Murphy via Avvo on a Sunday evening. Mr. Murphy immediately responded via email to my question regarding the possibility of expunging a public intoxication conviction my son received early in his college years. After a brief discussion via email, he respectfully scheduled a meeting, at my convenience, for Monday to further review the options. After advising me of all potential outcomes for expungement, he immediately wrote and filed the case in the appropriate district court. Fortunately for us, the district court responded the next week with a full expungement for my son. In this day and age, quick, polite, and knowledgeable action is required for all court actions. I highly recommend, and am confident; Mr. Murphy will provide clients who desire assistance with their intoxication issues his utmost attention and skill in working within the court system for them. Thank you, Mr. Murphy, for your help. I truly appreciate what you were able to accomplish for my son.

Colin is straightforward. The outcome he has delivered for me has always been above my expectations. my interactions with him have also led me to believe he is an involved father and dedicated family man. He is a good person who didn't choose his career for the money

I received an OWI in Clear Lake, Iowa. I contacted Colin Murphy, to represent me in this case. It was the best thing I ever did! Not only did he take care of everything, keep in contact with me (I live in Texas) and send copies of all documents, He got my OWI First Offense dismissed to a PI, $625 fine and a $60 speeding ticket, which the speeding ticket was dismissed and 35% of court fees. Total cost for the ticket was under $800 and the PI comes off my record within two years. Colin did everything right, my first payment on the fine was due the same day of court. With me being in Texas I couldn’t pay it in time, so he paid my first payment of $100 for me. I couldn’t of had a better attorney. I highly recommend if you have a DUI, OWI, DWI or anything drinking related to CONTACT Colin Murphy!

At every step was I satisfied with Mr. Murphy's service. He Is very knowledgeable in his field and also diligent in the courtroom. Charges were dropped against me and other related charges were amended down. He also advised me on a simple case a few years ago and I was equally impressed. I definitely recommend him to friends and family if they are in need of the best.

COLIN MURPHY REPRESENTED ME IN A DWI CASE IN MITCHELL COUNTY IOWA. I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND MR. MURPHY AS AN ATTORNEY TO DEFEND YOU IN ANY TYPE OF CASE. MR. MURPHY IS A VERY PROFESSIONAL, KNOWLEDGEABLE AND COMPLIANT ATTORNEY. HE WAS VERY GOOD AT KEEPING ME INFORMED THROUGH OUT THE CASE. I WISH TO THANK COLIN MURPHY ONCE AGAIN FOR HIS REPRESENTATION.

Very good at persuading whomever he needs to persuade to get things ruled out or in the defendants favor. Although he focuses in OWI and drug cases I have used him for both an assault (ended in fine) and a criminal mischief case (Granted differed judgement). Couldn't ask for a better lawyer!

I would highly recommend Colin murphy for your DUI case. I didn't think I had a chance of winning my case but because of Colin's great knowledge of the law He was able to get a motion to supress evidence granted. Because of that my case was dismissed. The DOT rescinded and removed the whole thing from my record as if it never happened! He is the one you want on your side when it comes to DUI.

Colin showed great energy and enthusiam for defending my case, which hinged on a dog sniff. It was the kind of case most defense attorneys would consider unwinable and plead out. He was responsive throughout the process and in the end, got all charges dismissed. I hope not ever to need a criminal defense attorney again but if I do, I will call him again.
