Excellent personal injury attorney
I was involved in a major collision in which I sustained a brain injury. Thankfully, attorney Murphy handled my case... she made everything easy. She was always available for calls/emails and explained all issues thoroughly and very patiently. I feel fortunate to have had her represent me. Do not hesitate to call her if injured! You will be glad you did.

Client
Karissa was Great. Couldn’t ask for a better attorney. She showed up early, replied quickly, was patient, also effective and I was more than happy with the results. She didn’t settle until things worked out in our favor. I highly recommend her.

Understanding & Precise
I hired Karissa for a non traffic case I had. The case was dismissed and I would hire her again in the future if needed.

Top Notch!
Attorney Murphy and Attorney Mielnicki were more than prepared to help me with my case. They were available whenever I had questions and I would highly recommend either of them if you require an Attorney in the Pittsburgh area. Thank you for putting in all the hard work!

Ultimate Professional!
Karissa came highly recommended to me. I was facing six motor vehicle violations and two Drivers License violations. Karissa advised me what I had to do before the trial if I wanted to have the charges reduced or dismissed. I followed her advice and after a few postponements due to Covid-19, we went to trial. Karissa was excellent in Courtroom with the Judge and Police Officer. Very Professional and knowledgeable. After a brief hearing, the Judge dismissed all charges. I would highly recommend her to anyone facing Criminal or Motor Vehicle charges.

Karissa Is THE BEST
Karissa worked with me on a rather complex traffic ticket, made even more complex by the COVID Pandemic. She was extremely professional and effective. If I ever get another ticket, I know who I am going back to! Thanks Karissa!

Major Traffic Violation Defense
I had contacted the law offices of Robert E. Mielnicki about my two traffic violations. They assigned Karissa to my case. She met with me the day of my case, she was calm and confident in that she could help. She talked with the officer who agreed to drop by charges down to way less serious charges. I was completely ok with this, as I know what I had done and didn't expect to leave with nothing. She spoke very well on my behalf and I would not hesitate to reach out to her for any other law issue that I hope not to have. Thank you, Karissa.

Knowledgeable and responsive
Karissa Murphy was very helpful and responsive to all my questions and concerns. She provided an excellent service, demonstrating professionalism and personal attention to all details. Karissa’s honesty and customer service were outstanding. I highly recommend Karissa and her team as this was my first ticket in Pennsylvania and the whole process made me quite nervous. Thank you Karissa for your help in this matter as you earned the 5 stars

She gets the job done.
Karissa told me she would get the ticket dismissed and that's exactly what she did. Hire Karissa it's that simple.

Absolutely Amazing
There isn't enough to say about Karissa i was referred to her by a friend that had used her as his attorney before. He said she was great so i figured i would give her a shot. Not only was she able to do everything she stated but she was very straight forward and said what she couldn't do. After having all four of my charges reduced, she also was able to get one dropped. Then i only received probation. After my first year on probation i needed to move to a new state and my probation officer wouldn't allow it one phone call after not speaking to her she answered and had a hearing setup for the termination of probation. She showed up extra early to my hearing explained what was gonna happen and a hour later i was released from probation. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anybody with charges for possession with attempt to deliver. I was been charged with four felonies and now i have none on my record.

Reckless Driving
Karissa did an excellent job representing me. I was paced going 105 mph in a 55 mph zone. The officer cited me with reckless driving, which carries a 6 month suspension. I work full time and cannot afford to lose my license for any amount of time. Karissa prepared a few alternatives that would not carry a suspension. We were able to get my citation lowered. I am so happy with the result. I would recommend Karissa 10/10!
