I used the J. Murphy Firm for a traffic violation and the professionalism, courtesy and follow up was excellent and the outcome was positive. I would therefore unreservedly recommend Mr Murphy to represent anyone who need professional help.

I found Mr. Murphy to be a very caring individual who honestly seemed to care about my concerns. He went out of his way to, including driving 65 miles away for a hearing, to make sure I got the best representation. He was always available and professional. I would definitely hire him again if I ever need legal assistance.

I was sued by Capital One for an unpaid credit card debt. I received the notice and the hearing was scheduled for just days before the statute of limitations was up on the debt. I contacted multiple attorneys and they all said the same thing. That it wasn't worth my time or money to fight it. Either settle with them or get a judgement.
I called the attorney for Capital One to work out a settlement. I offered over 50% on the debt as a lump sum. They wanted 100%. They would not negotiate at all. They were rude and condescending.
Around this same time I received a letter in the mail from The J. Murphy Firm. They said they could handle the case for a flat rate of $500. I was skeptical. I read a few reviews online and figure for $500 it was worth the gamble.
I sent over my paper work and his firm handled everything. They specifically told me not to show up for court. They sent an attorney on my behalf.
I called up after the hearing and was told the case was dismissed and we had won. At that point the statute of limitations had run out and I was legally free of the debt.
For a $500 fee they were able to prevent a $7k+ judgement.
Hopefully I won't need to use them again. But if something comes up I know who I'm calling.
