Hired Joseph to handle my divorce after 5 years of separation from a marriage with two children. Excellent service and attention to detail. Made the entire process as easy as it could be in a situation involving custody and with some complex financial issues. Was always efficient, easy to reach, and communicated and advised on all the issues with total professionalism, utmost expertise, and a lot of heart. The entire team at Murphy & Cistaro were great. Highly recommend.

Bud made a difficult process much easier. Knew when to push and when not to, explained process and next steps as we went. Could not recommend him more strongly

Joe helped me guide through a very messy divorce and custody battle. He was always there to listen and provide his objective advice. His associates are also very helpful. I would highly recommend him and his firm!

I hired Mr. Murphy for my Divorce Settlement. While the situation was frightening and very sad having been married 21 years, my experience with my attorney was very positive. I found Mr. Murphy very knowledgeable of NJ Divorce law, sympathetic to my situation and responsive to my needs. My case included Child custody and a divorce settlement in which my husband earned well over six figures and after originally being a professional in the work force had later become a stay at home mother for our children for a little over 10 years. Mr. Murphy was able to help me achieve a settlement in a relatively short period of time and at a reasonable fee under fairly difficult circumstances. It has been my experience that many people do not particularly like their divorce attorneys, however, my experience was a positive one and I would recommend Mr. Murphy to a friend or peer without hesitation.

After a series of unfortunate circumstances in a custody battle, it became extremely apparent that legal help was necessary. A friend recommended "Bud" and he's helped turn a horrible situation into one of hope. Without a doubt, he has found his calling in life. His kind professionalism, as well as his take no prisoners attitude has made him a pleasure to work with, as well as an extreme asset. Unfortunately, our case went to trial and is the beginning of a long battle, but I'm beyond confident that with Bud I'll get the results I'm hoping for. If you're looking for a A++ lawyer, look no further!

Joe "Bud" Murphy is a calm, thoughtful and thorough lawyer that took a very complex marriage and helped streamline the phases of divorce, and helped me navigate through the bureaucracy of the NJ legal system.
Bud has an attentive team that answers the phone and gives messages timely. Expectations were clear and when hiccups arose, Bud revisited options and pros / cons for results vs. costs.
Divorce is a sad and confusing time - I wanted someone who knew what he was doing and could guide me - to a fair and equitable settlement.
2017 is a fresh start - after 29 years of marriage - but I'm steady and organized, due to Bud's assistance and support.
He does not allow drama, is pragmatic about choices - and is emphatic throughout the entire experience. A professional - and a "what you see is what you get" style - which I appreciated - and valued.
I interviewed 8 lawyers before I made my decision - and am confident Bud was the right (and best) choice for me and my situation.

Mr. Murphy was recommended to me by a friend at work. I had been looking for a new attorney since my first one proved not to be as knowledgeable as he should have been. Bud was very knowledgeable and very efficiently and effectively got me through the whole process.

I live in VA and my ex wife lived in NJ. She decided to pull me into court up in NJ out of the blue. When I was looking for a lawyer to help me out, every firm I talked to was about the money. When I called Bud, he listen to everything I had to say and what I wanted. He spent HOURS on my case and fought very hard for me. He did not nickel and dime me, like all the other firms would have. His hard work and dedication to my case allowed me to get an increase in visitation, and lowered my child support. He made me feel like I was family and not just a client. I can't thank him enough for everything he did. Even after the court case was said and done, he reached out to me a few weeks later to see how me and my daughter was doing...I mean what other lawyer would do that?? I HIGHLY recommend him.

Going thru a divorce of any type is hard on any one, especially the first time around. I went to Bud for a free consultation for my divorce, which a fellow attorney referred me to him. He is well known in and outside of the court room as being professional and compassionate. Every divorce is unique in their own way, and Bud has the ability to understand or relate to the uniqueness. I hired him gladly, knowing that I was in good hands, with him having my best interest in mind. Bud may not be the cheapest, but he also is not the most expensive, his costs equals peace of my for the client. In the future, if I am faced with another divorce, Bud will be the first and last call I make to find an attorney.
