About James

Learn James’s areas of practice.

I have been at MHM&S for 33 years, it's a great firm. I was mentored by giants in the legal field and I am forever grateful. I learned from hard working, ethical, professionals who lead by example. I love that everyday still brings new challenges and opportunities. Interacting with clients, litagators, judges and everyone in our profession is enlightening and rewarding. I believe that the glass is 3/4s full.

My experience with Jim was excellent. He handled a financial matter for me relating to a company who would not pay commissions due. I have known Jim since high school. He has always handled himself with integrity and professionalism.

Excellent Service; excellent Result
We retained Jim on a referral from another attorney and were extremely satisfied. Responsiveness was very good, billing was fair and the result achieved in our insurance coverage claim and resulting appeal was excellent.

Gives you 200% and cares about his clients!!!
Kind, courteous and friendly, Mr. Murphy is a great attorney. He keeps you informed throughout your whole legal experience. He cares about his clients; walking us through everything we needed and all the paperwork. We hired Mr. Murphy on three occasions and he came through for us – all three times. He kept all his appointments and never made us wait. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.
