About Me

I work with my mother, and mentor, Kathleen Murphy Jones. She is an excellent legal advocate and has a medical background including thirteen (13) years of nursing practice prior to becoming an attorney. We routinely defend licensed professionals in disciplinary actions and represent them before state boards to assist clients in securing and protecting their licenses. Also, we maintain a litigation practice focusing on personal injury lawsuits.


My personal hobbies include surfing, basketball, hiking, yoga, cycling and swimming. I grew up in San Diego, Callifornia, and am an avid beach goer and nature enthusiast.

    When I have a client that holds a professional license that may be in jeopardy due their drunk driving case, I recommend Mr. Murphy collaborate on the case to ensure the client's interest is also protected administratively. Mr. Murphy is always honest in his assessment of the case and what he can do to help minimize the penalties. I would definitely recommend him.
