I was recently involved in a very minor auto incident. My car and a cab barely touched. We both pulled over, had a conversation and since there was virtually no damage, we agreed to not file insurance or police reports. A few days later I was contacted by the police and interrogated about being involved in a traffic accident and leaving the scene without providing proper ID.
I retained Patrick. I received a summons for the bogus offense, he represented me at the hearing and all charges were dropped, nothing will appear on my records.
Patrick handled the incident in an efficient and professional manner. I am confident that his stature with the Judge and Prosecutor in the East Boston court greatly assisted in the prompt resolution of the matter. I would recommend Patrick in a similar situation.

I had the good fortune of being paired with Patrick J. Murphy as my public defender during a very difficult moment in my life. Charged with assault and battery of a police officer, trespassing, and resisting arrest, I could have faced up to 5.5 years in prison. Mr. Murphy understood the severity of my case and the adverse effects it would have on my ambitions to have a happy life with meaningful work later. He sought every possible way to ensure that I was properly represented and not reduced to a series of accusations. He achieved a positive outcome for me, and did so with grace and integrity. Perhaps what was most impressive was his consistent communication and ability to explain all that was necessary in a helpful and easily understood way. I am grateful to Mr. Murphy and would recommend him without hesitation to anyone seeking meaningful representation.

Attorney Patrick J. Murphy absolutely helped me out in my time of need. When I met him in his Boston office he put me right at ease and explained the criminal process to me in a way I could easily understand and in a manner that gave me complete confidence. I was facing a criminal wanton destruction of property charge in Barnstable District Court. On the day of the case, he was at the courthouse waiting for me and my wife. Mr. Murphy handled the hearing in a very thorough and professional manner putting us through our testimony and making a powerful argument to the decision maker. My case was thrown out and I could not be happier with the service from Attorney Murphy. I highly recommend him to you as a skilled legal advocate!

I endorse Attorney Murphy. As a fellow criminal defense attorney, I've had the opportunity to witness Attorney Murphy advocate on behalf of his clients. He is extremely talented in the courtroom, intelligent and cares deeply about doing the best possible job for his clients. In summary, his clients are in very good hands and I would highly recommend him to handle any criminal matter.
