About Jeffrey

Learn Jeffrey’s areas of practice.

Jeffrey C. Murse, Esquire, is a native of Lancaster County and a graduate of Manheim Township High School.  Mr. Murse attended DeSales University in Allentown, Pennsylvania, graduating with a degree in Criminal Justice.  


Following his graduation from DeSales University, Mr. Murse attended Widener University School of Law in Harrisburg and, at the same time, he began serving as a Conference Officer with the Domestic Relations Section of Lancaster County.  During his time with the Domestic Relations Section, Mr. Murse was promoted to Supervisor, where he helped manage the establishment, modification, and enforcement of child and spousal support orders.    


Mr. Murse graduated from Widener University School of Law and was admitted to the Pennsylvania Bar in 2004.  In 2005, Mr. Murse left the Domestic Relations Section and began serving as a judicial law clerk for the Honorable Henry S. Kenderdine, Jr., of the Lancaster County Court of Common Pleas.  Mr. Murse then commissioned as an officer in the United States Navy Judge Advocate General's (JAG) Corps in 2006.  As an attorney in the JAG Corps, Mr. Murse provided legal counsel in family law, estate planning, and contract matters and he defended military members against criminal prosecution at courts-martial.  Mr. Murse transitioned from active duty in 2014, but he continues to provide legal counsel to military members in the Washington, D.C., area as a reservist in the JAG Corps reserve community.  


In January 2014, Mr. Murse accepted a position as Attorney-Advisor for the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Commerce in Washington, D.C.  Mr. Murse returned to Lancaster County in 2015, joining Pyfer Reese Straub Gray & Farhat PC with a primary practice in family law, but also handling other areas, including civil and criminal litigation.

This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Without a doubt, Attorney Murse is an excellent, conscientious, personable and detail-oriented attorney, especially in an area of practice that demands it. He is also VA accredited and welcomes veterans to consult with him. Consult with him for family law, military law and VA law. Your case will receive personal, consistent attention. He and I consulted a matter together; and his analysis and recommendations were stellar.
