Excellent and on your side
I contacted Stefanie for a charge against a family member, and she was extremely prompt, responsive, and professional. She knew the steps to take to help immediately, and was ultimately able to get us a best-case scenario outcome. She is available to the client by phone/text/email (which is great when you have a lot of questions) and she is well-connected in the court system, which serves as a great advantage no matter what your case. I HIGHLY recommend Stefanie, and am so glad we found her.

Best Lawyer
Stefanie is an amazing Lawyer! We were so happy to have hired her as our attorney. My husband was wrongfully accused of sexual assault and was sent to trial. Once we consulted with her, she was very direct and helpful in answering any questions we had. Day and night she was committed to his case, she was well prepared and worked really hard. She is the first lawyer that we meet that is so passionate about her job. My husband was found not guilty so thank you so much Stefanie! You are the best!

Best Lawyer I’ve Ever Had
I was wrongfully accused of a crime I did not commit and my wife’s friend recommended Stefanie. I contacted her for a consultation and I loved the fact that there were no judgments or assumptions and thankfully there was also evidence. She was direct of how she would be able to help me and she is a very down to earth human being. She took the case and went immediately to work and I appreciated her commitment. I went to trial and I’m thankful to God for sending her because I was found not guilty. She is a hardworking and very wonderful lawyer! She is the only lawyer I would want to hire. Thank you for everything Stefanie! Your the best!

You will be so glad if you hire Ms. Murphy. She is incredibly knowledgable and very responsive. She helped me register my LLC and made the process really simple! Her rates are so reasonable, and i definitely will consult with her again in the future!

Knows the system, knows the 'players'....call her......
I agree with all of the reviewers here. I retained Stefanie to help me with a case and thank my lucky stars every day that I found her. First off she talked to me immediately when I first called her. She was extremely knowledgeable and took the time to go over everything and explain the options. Being from out of state I was hoping to find someone who was familiar with the system and the 'players' in R.I., { the prosecutors, Judges, etc.} , and I got lucky with Stefanie who knows them all. More than once she met with the prosecutors before court and worked out 'details' . Bottom line was she got a great deal for me...something I'm not sure any other attorney would/could have achieved. If you're in trouble and need help give Atty. Stefanie Murphy a call...you will be so happy you did ...and will soon be writing a review like this !

Best Lawyer Ever
Stefanie was by far the most competent, and patient lawyer I have ever worked with. All my questions were answered promptly, and she always acted in my best interest. Eventually all charges were dismissed - I can't thank Stephanie enough for her hard work. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking high-quality counsel.

Words alone wouldn't be able to express my gratitude.
I've been working for several months on this letter that would probably take you only 5 minutes to write. I was hoping to give it to you earlier. My heartfelt thanks goes out to you for any credible and difficult negotiation on my behalf, and I especially want let you know that I had full confidence in you from the first time I met you. When I spoke with you to see if you would take my case, after our meeting, I had no doubt with, full confidence, that you would come through for me. Your understanding, patience, and willingness to listen to my situation when everybody else wouldn’t meant a lot to me. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for rising to the challenge in this case and bringing this matter to a solution. You have touched my family’s hearts in such a profound way that is beyond Lawyer and client relationship and for that, I am forever grateful. Stephanie, you truly are a credit to your profession and your great integrity and character remains unprecedented!! Words alone wouldn’t be able to express my gratitude for you. Thank you!

Stefanie A Murphy is an amazing Attorney; i would give ten stars if I could.
Ms. Murphy is without a doubt, hands down, the best Attorney I could have possibly hired to represent me. My legal problems in Rhode Island were complex and not easy to unravel. Throughout the entire ordeal, Ms. Murphy was by my side and did not give up until the absolute best possible outcome was reached for me with regard to all matters. She is honest, tenacious, respected, and keeps the best interest of her clients her number one priority in every situation. At times, I never thought I was going to get through my legal problems in Rhode Island due to the overwhelming endeavors by law enforcement, the court, and state to impose such harsh punitive measures against me. It's over now, and the outcome is just, fair, and forthright. Stefanie A Murphy is an amazing Attorney; if I could give ten stars I would.

Honest, Kind and Highly Ethical
I hired Stefanie for a family court matter. She was always accessible when I needed her. She was the only lawyer, out of the many spoke with, who didn't take advantage of me financially. She was very honest, fair and gave me sound legal advice. I always knew my options and she made sure I didn't agree to anything I wasn't comfortable with. She was also honest with me and told me when I needed to bend some. Great attorney and even better person.

Highly recommended!
I contacted Stefanie about a second offense DUI and refusal charges that I was facing. She contacted me back immediately and walked me through next steps and what to expect in the days to come. Throughout the 3 months that I had worked with Stefanie on these charges, I could not have asked for a better lawyer. She was compassionate, caring, and kind. She went above and beyond by encouraging me to text her whenever I had any questions or concerns. I took her up on that offer very often and she would get right back to me. In the courtroom, she was very well respected. As a result of her hard work, my charges were reduced/dismissed. I cannot recommend Stefanie enough!

Expert advice resulting in excellent outcome
I contacted Stephanie for assistance in a slip and fall incident involving my 87 year old mother. She got back quickly, brought the appropriate resources to bear, patiently guided us through the legal process to resolve the case and worked to gain a suitable settlement. What stood out was the compassion and real concern that she showed my mother, taking a personal interest in her situation. She always responded quickly to any questions or concerns we had with a calming, knowledgeable advice. Call her immediately - she'll help!

Stefanie quickly settled a personal injury claim regarding a no-fault car accident that had been dragging on for almost a year. She was quick to respond to any issues or questions throughout the whole process and the settlement was resolved very quickly! I highly recommend Stefanie!

Absolutely the BEST
I went against a police officer who lied and a judge who was terrible and Stephanie got the results I needed she was better than I would ever expect from a lawyer. If I ever need a lawyer I will always call her and never look around again. Stephanie you are # 1 Thank you for your service

Professional, Knowledgeable and attentive!
I have consulted with and hired Stefanie on several occasions for various complicated matters. She has always been quick to return client calls. Stefanie is extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and professional! She truly took a personal interest and was invested in my issue. She gave full attention and worked hard to resolve my issue in a favorable manner. There are many Attorneys out there, one of the big differences with Stefanie is she doesn't make you feel like you're just another client. I would highly recommend Stefanie!
