Lucky to be his client
I have known Mark since 1985 and seen his dedication to his clients and his cases consistently in all of those years. As his client you need not worry about offensive large firm hourly rates to pay for their over-the-top luxuries, or being moved to other attorneys or paralegals with less experience. He has never needed to advertise, and is extremely self-sufficient and responsible, beyond the call of duty. You will be fortunate to be his client.

Recommendation for Mark Murphy, Esq.
We have used Mark as our corporate attorney for at least 12 years. He is very knowledgeable about all relevant topics related to our business (as well as retaining an excellent memory/records of our transactions/business history) and is an asset when needing direction or advice. He understands the challenges facing corporations and is responsive to those issues. He has helped us drafting contracts to assisting us with an asset purchase agreement to buy another company to recommending a legal solution for a situation to helping us resolve an employment issue. We have been satisfied with all transaction; hence the reason we have stayed with him for so long.

Supper lawyer
Mark has been representing my businesses since 1996 and I call him the King of negotiators and trust his judgement.

This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Worst Attorney I’ve Encountered in 45 Years
He represented me in a business lawsuit in which he displayed terrible communication, utter lack of knowledge, no courtroom skills, and a focus on not saying anything that might annoy the judge. He had his Kansas law license suspended in November 2020, and his Missouri license suspect after that. He is only good at promptly sending outrageous bills. Avoid at all costs.

Resume

AVVO RATING 4.8 (Concern)

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2021.

Reciprocal - Suspension issued in MO, 2021
updated on 01/12/2023

This means that the attorney's misconduct in another state, or jurisdiction, also violated the rules for practicing law in Missouri.

Suspension Partially Stayed Placed on Probation issued in KS, 2020
updated on 05/09/2022

Suspension partially stayed means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. When the attorney returns to practice, he or she will be on probation, meaning the State monitors the attorney's activities for a period of time in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

Mark's comment: “Sanctioned regarding a business transaction in 2004 involving joint representation.”
