Highly Recommend Molly
Molly is a very knowledgeable attorney who keeps me informed on the status of my case and opposing counsel and is very responsive to my questions, emails and phone calls. She is a caring individual who makes my child's wellbeing and care a top priority, always listening to my concerns and taking action as necessary. Molly explains all hearings, filings, etc. so I understand the court process. She is always well prepared for hearings and opposing counsel meetings. After working with three other attorneys, I trust Molly is the best lawyer to handle my child custody case and trial.

I highly recommend Ms. Murphy
I am a current client of Ms. Murphy. She is an excellent attorney. She has been very patient and caring throughout handling my case, and she is very knowledgeable and experienced.

Always kept me up to date
I hired Molly Murphy because my ex kept pushing for more child custody and support. Molly was always available to talk to me or update me. If you have to go to court and go through a lot of court dates, you want Molly on your team. She knew everyone at the courthouse, including the Judge. I ended up with more time with my kids and less child support.
