Paul Murray joined Healy, Hafemann and Magee, LLC in 2017 and comes with considerable experience in a very broad range of legal areas.

He was commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps in 2009 and became a sworn and certified Judge Advocate for the Marine Corps in 2013, Murray has spent his entire career thus far serving Marines and Sailors in the legal field. After graduating law school in 2012, then, Captain Murray was permanently stationed at MCRD Parris Island where he vigorously represented clients in landlord and tenant law, consumer law, estate planning, contract disputes, family law, Service-Member Civil Relief Act (SCRA) and many other areas of law. Following his duties as a legal assistance attorney, he went on to defend Marines and Sailors at court-martial and adverse administrative action where service-members faced charges ranging from DUI/DWI and drug use/distribution to serious charges of rape and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Throughout his time practicing, Murray has gained experience representing both the government and individual clients at court-martial and adverse administrative action and boasts a very favorable record on both sides.  He has recently been honorably discharged from the active duty U.S. Marine Corps.  As a civilian attorney, he currently concentrates in the areas of Service-member Civil Relief Act and military justice. Murray is admitted to the bar in the states of Illinois and South Carolina.

I first contacted Paul and he reviewed documents to be submitted as evidence for submission with my BCNR request. I hired Paul because he was very knowledgeable, diligent, studious and insightful. Throughout the process I was always able to contact Paul for any questions or concerns that I had. I will recommend Paul to anyone I know who is looking for legal representation or legal advice. Paul is an excellent attorney.

While all 14 places I called either requested a some form of consultation fee to even begin or did not have the knowledge, Paul called me back after hours to hear my story. He listened attentively and , while his practice background was different and was not totally familiar with the regulations, he promised me he will review the regulations and call me back. He got back to me in a very timely fashion and provided me optimal solution to move forward. Although my case did not have any substantial damages that could be a cut for the firm, he went above and beyond with minimal flat rate fee. I actually came on top, with better results than i expected so I am very satisfied and I think he is very deserving of the payment that I made; if not more. He was very helpful in every sense, from beginning to end - I am not sure what else I can say about him but I just want to assure 5 star rating and you can not go wrong! Thank You Paul.

Excellent attorney. Very knowledgeable. Reliable and follows up.
Captain Murray with the Marine Corps JAG office handled my concerns with the utmost respect. He is very professional and knowledgeable. He took the time to explain everything I needed to know about my divorce. After I left he was accessible for follow up questions. I was able to avoid costly attorney fees and still get everything I was entitled to out of my divorce thanks to Capt Murray. I hope I don't have anymore legal issues, but if I do, I'll take them to him first.
