    Attorney Murphy is handling a criminal matter for one of my immigration clients. She is an extremely competent criminal attorney, advocates fiercely for our client, is easily reachable, and understands what it takes to resolve our client's case in the most efficient way for our client. I will, no doubt, refer criminal cases with immigration consequences to Attorney Murphy in the future.
