Professional and Sincere
Thank you, Murphy Law Group. Erica Kane treated me with compassion during a difficult time in my life when I needed legal representation. I highly recommend her. She is just the right combination of legal assertiveness and humanity.

9 minutes ago NEW I wanted to take the time to write this review on behalf of Mike Murphy and his law firm. Upon being terminated from my employer I reached out to 4 or 5 attorneys to represent me, only 2 of which responded. While doing so I completed a form on Mike Murphy's website not expecting much. After being shut down by the 2 other attorney's I received a call from Murphy Law Group. I figured I might as well share my experience once again. Mike showed empathy, professionalism, and most importantly the willingness to represent me when no one else would. The outcome was beyond anything I thought was possible.

Look No Further
I highly recommend this firm. I worked with Mike Groh and he is a true professional and his communication skills are exceptional. Mike took the time to listen to my story and never made me feel rushed. He was very knowledgeable of the laws and he was able to keep me informed every step of the way.

Caring, compassionate, and dedicated
I would highly recommend this firm to anyone who finds themselves in the unfortunate position of needing representation. They are a caring group of professionals who will help by asking the right guiding questions and making sure they have a full understanding of the situation. They're as good listeners as they are speakers on your behalf. They made a daunting and overwhelming experience feel like very manageable. I'm very grateful to Mary Kramer, Andrew Schreiber, and the whole team at the firm!

Murphy Law Group is excellent!
It is my pleasure to write a recommendation for Murphy Law Group. The one word that best describes my experience with their incredible team is “caring”. I never felt like “just another client”—I felt they truly cared for me and cared about my situation. Not only did they take the time to really listen, they walked me through every part of the process; kept me updated, and were always extremely professional and courteous. The entire experience, from start to finish, was extremely positive. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone who needs the type of representation they so aptly provide.

Stress-free!
I consulted with and hired Mike Murphy and his staff regarding a discrimination matter. He and his staff were professional and detailed throughout the entire process, keeping me updated, as appropriate. During something that could be quite stressful, Mike has the ability to relax the situation. I would highly recommend their services.

Do not hesitate to contact this great legal team!!!
I would highly recommend this firm! Lawyer Ben Salvina and his colleagues, from the beginning, were very professional . They listened and advised me with confidence. They kept me informed, and were readily available to answer any questions I had. I never needed a lawyer before, but the team made my legal issue a very clear and simple one. They made a bad personal situation into an easy process. So I would not hesitate to contact Murphy Law Group if you are in need of a great legal team. They will advise you on what your options are with confidence and integrity. I cannot be happier with the result and with the whole experience. Thanks Ben!! your kindness and commitment will always be remembered.

Ben Salvina and The Murphy Law Group are the best!
I cannot say enough good things about The Murphy Law Group and Ben Salvina who I personally dealt with. My feelings and what was important to me was equally important to Ben and the law firm. Ben really listened to me and treated me like he would a family member. I don't think that I could've had a better experience with another firm. I 100% recommend The Murphy Law Group to anyone.

Michael Murphy epitomizes the word professional! My first experience retaining counsel to represent me in a situation where I was full of doubt, he lent me knowledge in laymen's terms and was confident in his representation of me. I have already referred him to a close friend and would refer his entire group 1,000 times over. My experience was successful and fair.

Excellent lawyer with stellar service
Working with Michael and his team was an extremely positive experience. At a time that I needed solid advice, he was there and made me feel comfortable that he understood my values and what the important part of the issues was for me. He made sure that I always understood what options were available to me and could define the next steps of each path to help me make an informed decision. He and his team are very responsive and no question how silly will go unanswered.

Very patient - great service
I found Mr Murphy and his team, very easy to work with - they understood what was important to me, and were extremely patient with me. They do this every day but it was a new (and scary) experience for me. They held my hand the whole way through it and made it as easy as it could be. I couldn't be happier with choosing to work with the Murphy Law Group.
