Many thanks to Mysti and her staff for their outstanding professional and personal support throughout my divorce proceedings. Mysti's experience in all matters(children, division of assets, and tactiful negotiations) were instrumental to an expedited settlement. She only engaged when necessary and prepared me well beforehand with what to expect. She also had many recommended subject matter experts available to help as needed to bolster my case. My questions to her office were always responded to quickly and professionally which was reassuring as I lived out of state for the entire process. If you are looking for an attorney that is professional, fair, honest, confident and willing to do whatever you ask of her to support your cause and case, you should definitely contact her! You won't be disappointed.
Mysti is a compassionate and honest attorney. She turned a terrible situation that I thought I would never get through, into one where I saw the light at the end of the tunnel. She listened, was honest, and really knew her stuff. I'm so glad I found her!
I consulted Ms. Murphy and liked her well enough to call back a few days later to engage her as my divorce attorney. I was told she was at a seminar all week and would call me back the following week. Long story short, 3 weeks went by with no communication. I finally called back and the admin assistant apologized and indicated I had fallen through the cracks. Against my better judgment, we scheduled a call with Ms. Murphy for 2 pm the next day, with me to initiate the call. When I called, the phone repeatedly went to voice mail. I called 8 or 10 times and left two messages. Within an hour I received a call from a firm I had never heard of, saying that Ms. Murphy had referred my file to them, because she didn't know the judges in Comal County well while they supposedly did. If she felt not qualified in Comal County, why didn't she tell me earlier? To top that, Ms. Murphy's admin then called me to apologize for the blown meeting and said they had called me twice. I asked at what number they had called, and she read back my home number, which I had stressed to them not to call. She was calling my wife!
Ms. Murphy may be a very competent attorney, but I feel I was treated very unprofessionally. I think that is part of the risk in dealing with a one attorney, one admin assistant office, and consumers should beware. I think I was lucky to get away from this firm (and no way was I going to use the firm they referred).

I could not have asked for a better lawyer! i am beyond grateful for Mysti being so helpful and getting this case done so quickly (less than 2 months) and with everything i wanted and more. I never thought this could be done but Mysti made it happen! i only went to court twice and the second time was to get everything finalized. She kept me informed of every detail along the case and she told me how she planned it going before going to court and that is exactly how it played out. Mysti is worth every penny! If i had to do it again, i would without a doubt go back to Mysti.

Mysti was amazing. Down to earth, straight forward, and lots of communication. I have had lawyers in the past, and none of them even compare. When it comes to your child, you want the best. She's your woman!

For my simple divorce, where I just needed help with legal filings and processes, Ms Murphy was an awesome help. Her rates were fairly low but she was always there and the divorce stayed on my desired schedule. Her staff communicated well with me during the process with very clear emails. I knew every step of the way what to expect, what was required from me and when the next step would be taken. I would highly recommend her to take care of anyone in my similar situation.

I retained Mysti upon my current attorney not providing any sort of resolution in my divorce case. Mysti took my case and closed it within 60 days. She asked a plethora of questions, recommended a course of action and proceeded to act.
Extremely happy with all services that Mysti provided in this matter and are very satisfied with her performance.

From the initial consultation about filing for divorce, Mrs. Murphy was very helpful in providing me the information and advice I needed to make the decision to file or not. I had been married for over 20 years and had 2 children, one in middle school and one in elementary school. I never thought I would be in this position and was not pressured on what to do. Mrs. Murphy made it very clear that it was my decision to make. I decided to give it another try with my wife. This lasted a little over a year and Mrs. Murphy was there ready to pick up where we had originally started. She explained the informaion she needed to begin the process, it was provided, and she immediately filed the necessary paperwork to begin the divorce. I was kept up to date with the timelines for the case. I was provided monthly statements detailing what had been accomplished so far. As the court date came closer, she provided me the questions she was going to ask at the proceedings so I wouldn't be surprised by anything she would ask. Mrs. Murphy and her paralegal, where always at the courthouse prior to me getting there. When we would have a hearing, she would explain to me ahead of time what was going to happen so I wouldn't feel as nervous. There was no manipulation of information. Mrs Murphy was truthful in everything she did with my case. Mrs. Murphy and her paralegal even made my middle schooler feel relaxed when the judge and to speak with my daughter in chambers. As a father, I was able to get full conservatorship of my children with supervised visitation for the children's mother. My children had been through more than children their age should ever have to go through. Being questioned by police and Child Protective Services on multiple occasions was very scary for them. This was the hardest decision I ever had to make but I know it was the right one. For the first time in my daughter's life (now in high school), she came up to me and said she was confident in who she was and how she looked. If Mrs. Murphy had not been there for me and my children, I don't think my daughter would have ever been able to make a statement like she did. And I think my son is slowly working his way to that point also.
In short, Mrs. Murphy was there for me and my children. My children smile, laugh and play all the time now. She was informative, honest, and moved the proceedings as fast as the legal system would allow. I also feel that Mrs. Murphy and her paralegal truly cared about us. We were not an item on an assembly line. We were a family in need and she was there to help us. My children and I owe our current lives and happiness to Mrs. Murphy and her paralegal. Thank you so very much.

Mysti Murphy is an amazing lawyer who is extremely knowledged in her field of work. She impressed me the first day that I met with her for a consultation, and she impressed me so much that I hired her the same day. She helped me keep my son safe from a very dangerous situation pertaining to his biological father and step-mom, and she always had our best interest at heart. She was fast with filing court dates for me because of how serious my case was, and never pushed me to make decisions that didn't benefit my son and myself in the long run. I worked with her for a year, I hired her in January 2012, and she always kept me informed of new things that could affect my case. By January 2013, I had full custody of my son. He never has to be put in a dangerous, uncomfortable situation ever again and he is finally a happy, carefree little boy.... Not a scared, shut down, timid little boy anymore. I am extremely grateful for everything that she has done for me and I will never forget how much she helped me. I would recommend her to anyone who needs help with Family Law, and I would hire her again, and again.... But thankful that I don't need an attorney anymore!!

Mysti is incredibly knowledgeable in family law. She is an incredible client advocate and will make sure you are looking at all aspects of an issue, including ones you did not think to take into account yourself. She is kind, professional, friendly, and so very easy to work with. She made sure my divorce went through in a timely manner and that my child was absolutely taken care of. I never worried about anything in my case because I had full confidence in Mysti through the whole process.
