    • I recommend Laura Murphy.
    • I hired Laura 1-3 years ago.
    • Laura handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    I am a single parent with sole custody of my 16 year old son, we relocated to Wisconsin after I secured a position as an engineer. Between our move, my new job and my son's new school going through a divorce from 2000 miles away could have been a major stressor with the wrong attorney. Because of Ms. Murphy's efficiency, courtesy and accessibility I was able to concentrate at work and relax at home without the added stress of the divorce. Laura Murphy is very thorough and knowledgeable and in the courtroom she exemplifies her professionalism through preparedness, integrity and ethics, as in my case she even tried to help explain the law to my ex-wife who was representing herself. I also wanted to mention that Laura's paralegal Christy is a joy to work with, she is very pleasant, personable and kept me well informed.

    • I recommend Laura Murphy.
    • I hired Laura more than 3 years ago.
    • Laura handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I contacted Laura extremely worried about my career and the potential implications to my life. Feeling overwhelmed, she quickly gave me the confidence to approach this matter in the correct way.

    Her guidance was good & timely throughout the criminal and DOL process. She helped me understand each step and how she was going to proceed with my case. I saw how she deeply understands the system from her well-rounded knowledge (formerly working as a local prosecutor).

    It was great to watch her put her plan into action. Christy (her legal assistant) quickly answered my questions (asked the DOL) or would follow-up with Laura – this put me at ease during a stressful and complex process. I truly appreciated Laura’s guidance. I was glad to have her and Christy on my side.

    My outcome was better than I expected with the court and DOL. In the future, if I have a legal matter, I would contact Laura first and I highly recommend Laura.

    I could not have asked for anything more in an attorney! Laura handled my divorce case with extreme professionalism while also offering caring support and heartfelt guidance. Even now that my case is settled, she continues to provide that same guidance and support whenever needed. Laura and her assistant Christy really go above and beyond the call of duty!

    Laura impressed me very much. She was completely trustworthy, timely, and business-like, and succeeded in a very short time in dismissing the case.

    Laura Murphy’s expertise in evaluating my case, assessing the information and circumstances, and recommending the best course of action, was invaluable to me. She is diligent and highly skilled at getting the information she needs and knowing what to do with it.
    Her years of experience in the court system – her knowledge of legal requirements, familiarity with the court, and ability to get my case through the court with favorable results – were impeccable.
    It’s my opinion that Laura and her legal assistant Christy are a first-rate legal team, who effectively and efficiently work a case to ensure the best results for their clients. I appreciate the time and effort they expended on my behalf and feel fortunate to have had such a great team on my side when I really needed them. I highly recommend Laura to anyone needing legal services.

    Wow! Laura really came through for us! When confronted with a legal issue involving our son, we didn't know what to do or where to turn. Upon contacting Laura from a friend's recommendation, she immediately went to work making contacts, gathering information, and most importantly, putting our minds at ease. She knows the system inside and out... and had the wheels turning in the right direction the same day! The overall experience was NOT what I expected when I knew I had to contact a lawyer. Laura was friendly, helpful, down to earth, and extremely knowledgeable. We have a long journey to travel with this issue... But Laura has given us the help and confidence we needed to face what lies ahead. Having someone in your corner that you can trust makes all the difference! She gets my glowing recommendation!
