I believe the well-lived life is the one where your personal and professional goals complement each other.  As a father and Scoutmaster I get to hone my skills as a teambuilder and peacemaker; as a full-time mediator, I get to do the same.

I know from working with Joe several times in the past that he is a highly skilled mediator and advocate. I recommend him for any type of mediation or litigation.

Joe is outstanding!
I have known Joe for many years as both a lawyer and mediator. He is superb in both capacities. Not only is Joe smart, talented, and professional but he's also engaging and personable. As a mediator, he has the attorney trial experience you want. I look forward to my next opportunity to work with Joe.

Joe did a tremendous job in mediating a personal injury case for me recently. I had the pleasure of working with Joe several years ago when we represented adverse parties in a lawsuit. As a mediator, Joe showed the same mix of bulldog toughness and ingenuity but still being a very nice guy that he used so effectively as a trial lawyer. This is a tough blend but Joe has it. In our mediation, Joe stayed after everyone and the case got resolved. It is easy to see why Joe has become one of the very top mediators in Georgia.

Review of Joe Murphey by Lawson Thompson, CPCU, Frontier Adjusters of Atlanta
As an independent adjuster, I have been exposed to all types of attorneys over twenty five years and consider Joe to be among the best. His gentle demeanor is an asset which belies his skill and tenacity and his humble attitude provided the keyto settlement in some of the most difficult cases we shared. Whether plaintiff or defendant, parties can rely on Joe's knowledge, judgement and advice and I am proud to give him my highest recomendation.
