About Harold

Learn Harold’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Criminal defense
    Criminal defense law is the most important thing any lawyer can ever do. While most people charged with a crime are not totally innocent, they are frequently only guilty of a much lesser crime than the one the police/prosecutor charge them with. There are also a substantial number of innocent defendants due to sloppy police work or wittiness with a grudge to settle. These cases demand a lawyer's best efforts. You can be assured that your case will receive exactly that.

    38 years, 3,000 cases

  2. DUI and DWI
    DWI/DUI cases now involve the presence of prescription and nonprescription drugs in a driver's system. Unlike alcohol tests which look for a minimum level, these tests show up as "positive" when only trace amounts of certain drugs are in a person's system. This is the new area of DWI litigation, where it is more important than ever to use the law enforcement standards to show that they often arrest people on "guess-work" rather than following their own rules and procedures.

Mr.Murry is by far the one of the best attorneys I have ever met ..... he will do exactly what he says he will do and do it on time ....every time I called his office his well spoken very professional secretary answered all of my questions and if she had to ask Mr. Murry she did it right then and came right back to the phone and gave me the answer .... one instance I Called very late on a Friday and she took my phone number home and called me over the weekend to let me know the feed back she received on my concerns...Mr Murry is not the type lawyer to hid behind his desk YOU GET HIM AND YOU GET ALL OF HIM and if you want to talk to him YOU GET TO TALK TO HIM he is the real deal..... he went above and beyond to help me in my case....the end result was exactly what he told me from day one:) Mr. Murry and Mrs. Brandi are the best at what they do!!! They kept me so calm and saved me many tears and worry! I will never ever be able thank them enough for being there for me durning the hardest most trying time in my life !!!!! sending love and thanks to Mr. Murry and Mrs Brandi:)

Grade A Criminal Defense Attorney
Mr. Murry is a superb, grade-A attorney. From the moment I called for a consultation, he and his secretary Brandi did an excellent job quelling my anxieties, guiding me through the legal process, and making me feel secure in his hands. Harold Murry delivered results, and I have no doubt in my mind I picked the right person for the job!
