I want to thank Doug Murphy for all the hard work, faith, dedication, and most of all appreciation of my military service to this great nation. That appreciation meant a lot to me. Doug's commitment, professionalism, courtesy, brilliance, and dedication to his clients--and especially those who have serve-- means he stood right beside me every step of the way. The pride Doug has in representing all his clients--especially service members--makes me even prouder that God introduced him to me. There is a reason for everything. I have learned a very valuable lesson through all of this and I appreciate him being there with me. I could brag all day long about how great Doug Murphy is as a lawyer and person, but he doesn't need it.. When people would ask who my attorney is and I said Doug Murphy I have never been so proud. There are lots of great things going around about you and you are very well known for many many counties. Everyone I met said that if anyone could do it that you could. I never heard one thing different. I will forever be grateful for the time that I got to know you as a client. I apologize that you met me under such distasteful circumstances. With all that being said. I send you the sincerest thank you and job well done I can give. It truly has been a pleasure and I am forever grateful for all the many blessings that God has given me and the gift that He gave to you.

First and foremost, Doug Murphy is an outstanding lawyer who cares about his clients while demonstrating a level of professionalism and knowledge that is all too rare. I definitely place Mr. Murphy in a league all his own. In mid-May of 2014, I found myself in an unfortunate situation and was cited with DWI charge. The criminal justice system and process were overwhelming, even for someone like me who has a legal background (completely new territory for me). Shortly after my DWI arrest, I knew I needed an attorney, and I wanted an experienced one at that. I met with Doug Murphy and his legal team. They listened to me carefully as I explained the events that led to DWI arrest. This was not easy for me because I consider myself a principle-centered person and did not want to believe that I was in a DWI situation (the truth is that virtually anyone could be cited with a DWI). Mr. Murphy, understanding the facts of my case, said he could handle my case and would fight to provide me with the best defense possible (even if that meant going to trial). Over the course of the DWI process (which for me was long and at times emotionally draining), Doug would reassure me that everything would work-out fine and that I shouldn't let this DWI situation control my life... which was a very difficult thing for me to do. What helped me a great deal was Doug's willingness to meet on numerous occasions at his office to discuss my case. These meetings were extremely insightful and I could see how thoroughly Doug and his team were analyzing my case. At the end of the DWI process, I could not help but feel that I got the best and right attorney (which made me want to write this Avvo review). Overall, I cannot say enough about the legal excellence and professionalism that Mr. Murphy exemplifies. If you are looking for an attorney that will fight your case aggressively and is trustworthy, then get Doug Murphy on your side!

Driving home from the Houston Rodeo BBQ Cookoff, I was pulled over by police in Brazoria county for running a yellow (soon to be red) light. I failed a field sobriety test and was charged with DWI.
I knew of Doug Murphy's work and called him immediately after booking. My automobile was a company fleet car. Company policy was termination of employment for any DWI offense. Through great effort, Doug was able to get the DWI dismissed and the charge was reduced to speeding and running a red light.
If not for Doug's fantastic "lawyering", I would have certainly lost my job. A year after the incident, Doug was also able to have the lesser charges removed from my driving record.
I highly recommend Doug Murphy.

As an attorney, I knew the best evidence against me was none. Even though I had just been out to dinner with friends- if you're not 110% I knew not to "blow". When pulled over by West U police for rolling a stop sign, I encountered two officers. The older was not pleased with my decision not to perform field sobriety test or breathalyzer. Needless to say I was arrested, which was the most terrifying and humiliating experience of my life. However, working with Mr. Murphy not only made me feel confident that I was getting the best representation possible, he also made me feel human again. I was able to hand my case over to Doug and know he would handle the rest. Upon getting the officers' testimony, Mr. Murphy promptly met with the Asst. District Attorney and my case was quickly dismissed. He also referred me to an attorney who handled my occupational license case. My case has since been expunged. I could not possibly be more pleased with his representation and although I hope to never be in need of his services again, I would wholeheartedly and without reservation recommend him.

I had the pleasure of having the best lawyer for the job to assist me in a criminal matter that seemed like it would take my life from me. Doug was supremely beneficial in making sure my life stayed on track and in ultimately getting the charges against me dropped. My family and I will always owe a huge debt of gratitude to Doug for being here to help us, as well as other people who have to deal with the supremely inefficient and lopsided justice system. Never doubt his tactics because he's always in it for YOUR best interest. Tell your friends this is the guy to call when they get in trouble!

A few months ago I was pulled over for speeding. I admitted to having a drink but refused a breathalyzer. I was charged with a DWI and taken to jail. A friend recommended Mr. Murphy. Hiring a lawyer is a big decision but when I met Mr. Murphy I hired him on the spot. He was very patient answering all my questions and is extremely knowledgeable about the law. My case was ultimately dismissed and my record expunged. I was so lucky to have Mr. Murphy on my side!

After getting pulled over and receiving a DWI I called several lawyers over the phone. After explaining my situation they all gave me an estimated cost and practically told me they could try to get me probation, a fine, and my license would be suspended for a period of time. Then I ran into an article about the top Lawyers in Texas and decided to call, Mr. Murphy did not give me a quote over phone, he simply asked me to meet him at his office and after explaining my case he asked that if I hired him i needed to be ready to fight because he was not going to negotiate with the DA. Long story short I never even saw or talked to the judge my case was dismissed. Thanks Doug!

Doug is extremely knowledgeable and thorough, and is well respected by prosecutors and judges throughout southeast Texas. This combination made him exceptionally effective in advocating my case.

Doug Murphy is a lawyer I would recommend to anyone I know. When I brought my case to Doug he made no judgments he just took it as a mistake that we all could make. Through out the entire process Doug made me feel better about my situation and made it clear that he would do everything in his power to help me and he did. I owe alot to Doug, and I really appreciate everything he did for me. Doug is a lawyer who actually does care about his clients, I was not really a believer in such a thing until Doug represented my case.

I was pulled over after rolling a stop sign around the corner from my sisterâ€™s house about 2 years ago. The field sobriety test didnâ€™t exactly go according to the plan and then I refused to blow. I was referred to Doug from a friend, and that was easily the best money I have spent in a very long time - probably ever. The case was dismissed within about 6 months at tops. In addition to being extremely knowledgeable, he took a very personable approach which was and still is greatly appreciated! Doug is a stand-up guy that I would strongly recommend to my closest friends, and of course to all.
