I've been practicing law since 1995, and I love what I do. I love my work because I thrive off of helping others. Though the money is certainly nice and provides a very comfortable lifestyle, I did not become an attorney to get rich - I became one so that I would have an interesting livelihood with which I could validate my own existence in the universe by doing meaningful things for folks in need of help while fully utilizing all of my language and "people" skills. Unlike a lot of other attorneys, I take the time to provide my clients such quality services as making house calls (not just for the sick or elderly), and I personally return each and every client's telephone call and e-mail reasonably promptly, if not immediately. With the exception of bankruptcy-client cases, no one ever touches my files but me. I do have people helping me out at any given time with the administration of my law practice, but only my hands touch my non-bankruptcy files. I am the only one who drafts my criminal-defense and family-law clients' paperwork, not some paralegal. When a client retains me to handle his or her case in court, I am the one who goes to court for that client, not an associate attorney working for me. And I am the one who is in charge of taking and answering my telephone messages on my direct line. I do everything myself for my clients because modern technology allows me to, and because past experiences have taught me that letting somebody else do work on my cases can lead to sloppy carelessness below the high standards that I adopted from half a decade of military service during the cold war. I realize that what I do for people is very serious business; I take each and every client's case equally as seriously, no matter how much or how little is at stake for each one because everybody's case is important. Another reason that I can do everything for my clients myself and take such good care of them personally is because I am very selective with the number of legal matters that I take on at any given time, unlike other lawyers I know who pile so many cases onto their desks that they end up spreading themselves far too thinly to give their clients the close attention, care and results that I give mine! Click  to read a few newspaper articles about some of my legal victories. Also, click  to read a poem that one of my actual clients has published on about the quality of the service and care I provide.

EXCELLENT SERVICE!
Jeff is a awesome Lawyer and attorney! I found him him on craigslist in a pinch and It ended up being one of my best decisions of my life! We went to a jury trial after the prosecutor offered the worst deal ever! Satisfied to the max after Jeff went forward and won me a full acquittal! I would recommend Jeff to everyone!

Amazing Attorney
I hired Attorney Jeff Murrell to represent me in court for housing code violations. I live thousands of miles away and hired a property manager that neglected to fix violations that I hired and paid them to fix. Jeff was thorough, patient and very responsive throughout the entire process. He even consulted me on how to fire and hire a good property management team. I couldn't be happier with the results

Totally Awesome Defense Attorney
Jeff was great in defending my innocence. He was recommended by the Wisconsin Bar association. I would recommend him because he is great in court and will look out for his client's interest. He listens and knowes his craft.

Chapter 128
Mr. Murrell set up a Chapter 128 plan for me 2 years ago. He was professional, expedient and thorough. He knows exactly what needs to be done and clearly explains the process. He is reachable and more than helpful.

Chapter 128
Attorney Murrell is the absolute best at helping a person navigate the Chapter 128 filings. He is concise, on point, and most importantly prompt with information and responses to questions along the way! Highly recommended!

Always professional and agressiveness you need!!!
Jeff is a great attorney. He doesn't just fold over and accept what other side says. He was very aggressive with my case which in turn gave me primary custody of my child... and guess what? I'm a male. These days men are looked down upon to have primary custody of their children. He helped change that.

Criminal Defense
Attorney Murrell, represented my nephew in a criminal defense matter. We were very lucky to have him as his attorney. He was always easy to reach and he stayed on top of the situation to insure a positive resolve.

Severance Agreement
Thanks Jeff, for assisting me with understanding the legal language and its meaning regarding my severance agreement. I appreciate your straight forward approach and simplying legal terminology for the common person.

Execelente
Mr.Murrell worked on my case and reached out to me right away.He is also very affordable lawyer and worked with me on a payment plan. Mr.Murrell got one of the hardest cases to fight dismissed for me before even going to trial. He worked very hard and delivered perfectly in the court room. I am beyond satisfied with his work

It could of been worse
Jeff represented me in a very delicate situation that could of been worse. I believe he gave me the best, honest, upfront representation possible. I would highly recommend Mr. Murrell and would definitely hire him again if need be.
