Very Knowledgeable, Experienced, and Confident
Had a phone call with Attorney Murphy today and could immediately tell he knows what he is doing. He has lots of experience in landlord/tenant matters and knew all of the judges and even opposing council. With his expert advise, we were able to resolve the issue with a tenant. If you are a landlord, you need somebody with experience who knows landlord/tenant law inside and out. I wouldn't hesitate to hire him because I know he would do an excellent job and have no doubt, he would win. Loved the quip about "Murphy's Law" on his website. I'm glad we didn't need him this time, but he is very impressive and I hope we don't need him in the future - but he'll be the one we hire without a doubt to represent us if we do. Thank you for your service in the U.S. Navy as well, Attorney Murphy. Thank you for your advice.

Knowledgeable and Helpful
We hired Atty. Murphy for assistance and guidance with tenant related issues. He answered all questions clearly and was always willing to explain the legal intricacies. It provided us such peace of mind and our only regret is not having hired him sooner. Would highly recommend to any individual looking for a knowledgeable, professional attorney to trust.

Made it happen
Attorney Murphy took a difficult problem and used his expertise to expedite a quick closure. At the same time keeping us informed that this was not the norm and may not work. His experience and diligence paid off. Highly recommend.

Best Lawyer need to look any further!
It's hard to put into words how excellent of an attorney Mr. Murphy, is. I went to Sean with a case of mine that was running out of time with the Statue of Limitations very quickly, and Sean worked so hard & even quicker. I am very pleased with his work, and how well & quick he handles things. From day one, he was right on top of my case and didn't stop until we were fully satisfied. He has always been very polite, very knowledgeable and always there at anytime to help with any questions or concerns. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a great Attorney, and will only go to him for any other issues, I may run into in the future. I couldn't be more satisfied with his work & work ethics. He knows just what he's doing, and he's great at it. If you need a Lawyer, Mr. Sean Murphy, is your guy!

Estate Planning for a Reluctant Mother
My mother's legal affairs were a daunting task I have been avoiding for two years. My mother is loving, but difficult at the age of 96. I explained this to Mr. Murphy, who had no qualms about taking charge with speaking with my mother one on one. His demeanor lent a calming affect on my mom that allowed us to go through the very serious process of Health Care Proxy, Power of Attorney, and Personal Will. Sean kept both of us well informed throughout the whole process, devoted much-need time to my mother explaining the process in such a way so as to reassure her these documents were both necessary and protective for her well-being and interests. After all was said and done, a major weight was lifted from my shoulders, and both my mother and I can continue on knowing that at any given moment in time, we can change the will or add to Health Care Proxy selections with a mere phone call to a caring attorney that has given us the legal protection we need, as well as the peace of mind that goes with it. Well done, Mr. Murphy, and thank you. Beverly Small

Pleased with the Services
Sean Murphy was very helpful from the day I met him at housing court about a year ago. He was very knowledgeable about what needed to happen in order for my family to reach an agreement with my previous landlord.
