Very Knowledgeable and Professional
Noelle Murray and her support staff as nothing less than excellent. Very knowledgeable of the law and is always professional. Her support team is on point with answering emails and phone calls. I like knowing that when I have a question or concern I can reach out to them and have an answer that day. Murray Law and team will exceed your expectations!

Awesome Attorney and Support Team
Without going into legal details, we hired Noelle Murray to represent our son in a custody case. Noelle and her team didn't miss a beat; well prepared, kept us very well informed, returned phone calls promptly even it was just to talk us off the ledge as the court date approached. The court date came and as parents we sat in the back waiting to hear where our grandson was going to reside, with his father or his mother? As I watched I was so impressed with Noelle's professionalism, the case was decided just has Noelle and her team predicted, but they prepared us for it to go either way. Our son was awarded temporary primary care which is uncommon in Iowa. I recommend her to anyone looking for an attorney that has the experience and knowledge of the law backed up by an awesome support team in her office.

Saved my life and allowed me to prosper
I will not go into detail about my case other then the fact I made the greatest decision of my life by hiring Noelle and her team! My whole life changed for the better! I felt extremely confident and never worried about what was being handled. Not only did she maintain excellent communication, she answered any and all questions when ever I had some. I would recommend Noelle to everyone! Thank you so much! If you are looking for great guidance at an affordable rate make sure to contact Noelle before moving forward with any one else.

I had Noelle in my divorce and she knew exactly what she was doing. She always answered my questions promptly and made sure I understood the steps going forward. I loved how compassionate she was during this difficult time. When it came down to it I always felt like she was fighting for me. Thank you Noelle for everything!

Totally inadequate! Go elsewhere!
Noelle Murray is a complete waste of money as an attorney!!! Beware: just because a lawyer is part of your work EAP does NOT make them competent! I went thru divorce mediation with Noelle and she contributed absolutely nothing to counter or rebuke the other party! I felt like I was representing myself the whole time! If you want to give your money and everything you have worked for away, hire her. Otherwise find a competent lawyer who is not afraid to challenge opposing counsel. I wish I had hired new counsel months before I finally did.! I received more valuable information in consultation with new lawyer than I ever did with Noelle.

Find a more competent and willing attorney.
BEWARE, Noelle Murray was the biggest waste of time and money I have ever spent. Being her client was a complete joke. She didn’t thoroughly review the situation or ask the necessary questions. She was trying to settle before we even had talked about wants and needs. She did not step up and offer proper representation. I felt uneasy throughout my whole experience with her she wasn’t there to advise or put any worries at ease. She was completely incompetent and unprofessional. I wouldn’t wish her on the opposing counsel as her skills are sub-par at best. She doesn’t show up prepared for scheduled meetings and she couldn’t even get my ex served when she had multiple good addresses and phone numbers. My ex didn’t even have to hire an attorney she just had consulted with one, it was ridiculous. Noelle has terrible communication skills via email, mail and phone on top of that she bills her higher hourly rate for work that her paralegals complete. She was unaware of things that she had supposedly done. Worse mistake I ever made just a complete waste of my time. I happily terminated our contract and hired a real attorney who wrapped things up quicker and cheaper even though his hourly rate was double hers. Noelle and her team were more concerned about utilizing my retainer than resolving my case. Wish I had saved myself the headache and agony of ever going to Bertroche Law office. If you want any chance at getting anything done or getting your stipulations find a better attorney. She made an easy case complicated and expensive.
