My son had received an aggravated speeding citation and a neighbor recommended Joel to represent us in court. Joel was honest, professional, and extremely knowledgeable at every step throughout the process. As the case progressed, Joel explained that, while tedious, it was in our best interest to continue the case and request a bench trial. At the bench trial, Joel was outstanding again in his negotiations with the county prosecutor and the charge against my son was COMPLETELY DROPPED. Needless to say, we were pleasantly surprised, as this was obviously much more positive of an outcome than we had expected. In short, I cannot recommend Joel enough as an attorney. Again, he is an outstanding lawyer, but more than that, an extraordinary person.

Joel is one of the best lawyers hands down! He won one of my cases that was a bench trail for DUI. Good price, always on time and a great guy. Defiantly would hire him again

I hired Mr. Murphy in 03/2015 to represent my case. From the very start he and his staff made the entire process easy and explained everything completely. He worked with a payment plan for me, and also charged a flat fee, which included all court dates. We finally completed our defense in 12/2015 at which time we had actually had 4 or 5 appearances already. I was charged with a DUI, illegal transportation of alcohol and paraphernalia and through knowledge and keen eye for discrepancy and error, he got every bit of it dismissed. He showed two different patrol cars videos in court of my arrest and went down an entire list of errors and inaccurate steps the police took during the arrest and sobriety test. He negated with proof every step the officer attempted to accuse me of failing. The few different judges we had all agreed, there was no probable cause for arrest, passed a motion to suppress evidence, and one even stated that this was the most flawed (on the officers part) sobriety test he had ever seen. Mr. Murphy found all these faults and proved them. Mr. Murphy was recommended to me by one of his previous clients, and I am so glad that they did. I would definitely recommend him to others. Don't ever think there is no hope for your situation, or that it is pointless to try, call and go in for a free consultation.

I have personally watched Joel as a fellow attorney practicing in the same courtrooms as me for years. Joel is the real deal and backs up his well earned reputation with excellent performance for his clients.
