Murphy is a Criminal and Traffic Law attorney, practicing in and around the Greensboro area.
"I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, where I lived until 1996, when I headed north to Boone, North Carolina to attend college at Appalachian State University.
During my time at A.S.U., I earned a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree in English. I also became a serious outdoorsman.
After completing my Master’s degree, I left the mountains and I taught English at North Carolina State University and at Elon University before pursuing a career in the Law.
I am a proud graduate of the Elon University School of Law. While at Elon Law, I completed coursework in Family Law and Litigation and I interned for the Alamance County District Attorney’s Office and the High Point District Attorney’s Office. I developed a passion for both Family Law and Criminal Law cases, since both legal areas allow me to intervene and to help people with serious legal issues.
I will bring all of my enthusiasm and legal acumen to bear on your case."
