Top notch lawyer
I've never been in trouble my entire life until it happened. Keith was prompt in returning all my calls, and fought hard to get my charges changed to a violation. I've worked with lots of lawyers in my life and Keith was the best

Call this man!
Look no further... call this man! I met Keith on the worst day of my life. I was a terrified, trembling, hysterical mess. He was patient, empathetic, and kind, yet firm. He devised a strategy for me and took charge of the situation. He knows his stuff. He's also quite brilliant, thinks outside the box, and is determined to win. He is relentless. He stuck with me for over 2 years, through Covid court delays. He never gave up, even when I did. You can rely upon this man absolutely. He wont let you down.

Great Attorney
Based on my personal experience with Keith Murphy from Carmel, NY. I highly recommend him. He is a good listener and respectful. If he says that he will win your case, then believe him. He will win your. My case was dismissed. Thanks to him. Give him a call. Tell him your story and leave it in his hands. Good luck

Honest and caring
When I first met Keith, he was working to help my son with some legal issues. Our first conversation consisted of me calling him upset about the way I thought he was dealing with my son. After listening to my rant he took the time to go over every concern I had, and was able to put a very emotional mom in her place - and somehow he managed to do so in a diplomatic and very understanding way.  From that moment on I actually felt comfortable leaving the fate of my child in his hands and I could not be more grateful.  He went above and beyond to make sure my son was given the best possible outcome in his situation.  I wish I could say this was a one time only blessing,  but unfortunately my son found himself in legal trouble again some time later.  My immediate reaction was to contact Keith for help, and fortunately for us he was willing to take this roller coaster ride with us... again. He has not only helped us through these awful legal problems, but he was there when we were scared and needed someone to talk to, always offering reassurance. Even when we knew the outcome wasn't going to consist of rainbows and unicorns, he continued to fight for the best possible outcome while keeping us aware of what the possible outcomes may be.  His honesty and dedication to helping my son is something I have never come across before or since. I can honestly say, without any reservations,  that I would recommend Keith to anyone struggling with legal problems!

I needed my CDL back!
Let me start by saying that calling Keith Murphy is by far the best decision I have ever made! He was able to get the charges dropped much further than I was expecting and the judge was even in shock when he read off the deal. I have a CDL and need it for work so losing it was a big loss for me. Keith told me he’d keep fighting it until he was able to get me the deal I needed in order to get my license back and that’s exactly what he did. Could not have asked for a better lawyer. Please, if you’re in a similar situation give Keith a call!

Dwi
From the first day contacting him, especially on a weekend I was able to have a consultation with him the very next day! During the consultation he stated what his goal was and got that job done for the end result. Went from DWI to disorderly conduct! Couldn’t be any more please with his services!! I would highly recommend!!

Excellent lawyer
I had multiple charges with one of the worst being aggravated DWI. Keith was able to have all my charges dropped and i walked away with just a violation at the end. He is very patient, great communication skills and always professional. He literally saved my life and career. I would recommend him to anyone.

Best lawyer for a DWI in NY
I had originally found Keith on the internet for a good friend of mine 2 years ago. He was able to lower her DWI to a DWAI. Unfortunately, 2 years later I found myself in a similar situation except my case was much more difficult because it was a refusal ( it’s extremely difficult to get a refusal lowered from a DWI to a DWAI in Westchester County). From the beginning, Keith did not give me false hope or make any promises on the outcome of my case. However, I was confident that if anybody could get it lowered it would be Keith. And guess what? He did! He is an outstanding lawyer who truly cares about his clients. He kept me informed every step of the way and I am extremely grateful for everything he did for me. Not only is he amazing at what he does, but he is also very affordable, caring, and honest. I am so happy I chose him and I will forever recommend Keith to anyone in need of his services.

Excellent Lawyer
After being pulled over and charged with a DWI I was at a loss. Never having had any legal troubles my whole life (not even traffic tickets), this incident had flipped my whole world upside down. After meeting with 3 lawyers I just didn't feel comfortable with the way the consultations went nor how they were going to defend me. Then I came across Mr. Murphy's information on the internet and reached out for a consultation. Working full-time, having time meet during the day was very difficult. Keith volunteered to stay late at his office, on a Friday, to ensure I would be able to come and meet him after work. We went over every single detail that night, from the time I woke up to the moment I was released from custody. He also took the time to go through every possible scenario and all the options that I had moving forward. After the consultation I hired Keith immediately, without question. Not only were his legal fees lower than others I had met with, his sincerity towards the case showed that he wasn’t just about the money but was truly passionate about his profession. I couldn’t have made a better choice. At all court appearances Keith was early to court, extremely knowledgeable and very well prepared and as a result we were able to get the verdict that we were seeking in a timely manner, without issue. Throughout the entire process Keith was available to speak with and updated me quickly with any and all information that he had obtained. I cannot thank Mr. Murphy enough for all that he did for me. His compassion, understanding and knowledge of the courts is exceptional and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of legal counsel. Thank you again Keith.

Saved my teen’s future
One night’s bad decision on my teen’s part could have cost him the hopes of driving for a living. Keith really went to bat for my son with amazing results. He is on his way to getting his CDL thanks to Keith handling his case the way he did. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Dwi case
I am an upstanding citizen and I’ve never broken the law with the exception of a parking or speeding violating as a teen. In February of 2017, I decided to drive home after having a few drinks with the guys. A deer ran in front of my car and caused me to have to swerve off the road. My car was completely totaled and I caused property damage to someone’s home. I’m lucky to be alive. I was arrested at the scene and charged with a DWI. My wife and I called several lawyers who wanted thousands and thousands of dollars to take my case. Although they had proven track records, we couldn't imagine spending $10,000 or more for a lawyer. After several google searches we found Keith Murphy. When I called him he was so pleasant on the phone and never questioned my actions or reasoning with my case. He asked me about my career and life aspirations and after sharing this with him, he actively worked with the DA’s office to get my case resolved. Several people told me this case would go on for months and that I would still be charged with a DWI. Keith ensured me he wasn’t settling for a DWI and that this wouldn’t take more than 6 months. By May of 2017 (3 months later), Keith had my case resolved and the charges dropped to a DWAI which is a ticket/violation and wouldn’t be on my record. He aided me in maintaining my good reputation and dignity as a citizen. I am truly grateful to him.
