Great Attorney, The Best !!
I had an old case from another state for dui, 20 years ago to be exact , that had came back to haunt me where the State of Texas was not renewing my CDL which i need for my career due to the info from another state. After much research i decided on Doug Murphy's law firm and have been very happy with my results from him and his staff.While he got me cleared with the Texas DPS on the old information they had on me , he also gave me a contact info on a friend of his in the other state so i could get the old info from 20 something years ago took care of, thus saving my CDL and career. Hands down the best !!!

Best lawyer ever!
Doug immediately made me feel at ease as soon as I spoke to him. He and his team handled my case perfectly and I got the best outcome ever, all charges dropped and all property returned. He and his team are truly the best and I have already recommended them to a friend who needed help.

Phenomenal!
Just 2 weeks before my 27th birthday I was a passenger involved in a horrific motor vehicular accident. Unfortunately enough I was arrested for FSRA involving bodily injury & DWI. After doing some online research I was able to discover the Doug Murphy Law firm & knew right then that’s who I wanted to represent me in both of my cases. With their great knowledge & expertise in cases like mine they were able to identify me as a passenger & got both of my cases dismissed in just a matter of months; considering one was a felony & the other a misdemeanor that is. Highly recommend for anyone seeking legal counsel as they are an excellent team. Thank you so much to the Doug Murphy Law Firm!

The Guy to Hire
I hired Doug Murphy when my son had a DUI charge. It was a great move to get him because he is a pro -- handled our case with care, empathy, and total professionalism. What could have become a real problem was resolved to our satisfaction because of Doug. I would use him again, without question.

Very Professional and knows what he is doing
I hired Doug Murphy to represent me after I was arrested for DWI and failed a breath test. A friend referred me to Mr. Murphy and told me that prosecutors and police officers feared Doug Murphy more than any other lawyer in the courtroom. After meeting with other lawyers I then met with Mr. Murphy. Other lawyers bragged on themselves and made promises, but Mr. Murphy was humble and straightforward in his approach. Mr. Murphy only promised me that he would work as hard as he could to obtain the best possible outcome. After reviewing the evidence in my case, I did not think my case could be won and I wanted to plead guilty and so I could just get it behind me. Mr. Murphy told me he would not let me plead guilty. Mr. Murphy took my case to a jury trial. Once the trial started, Mr. Murphy took command over the courtroom with his calm and confident demeanor. Mr. Murphy is an absolute professional and quick-witted on his feet. After a 3 day jury trial, the jury found me “not guilty”. If it wasn’t for Mr. Murphy’s outstanding representation, things would not have ended in a favorable manner for me. I highly recommend Mr. Murphy and his team to anyone dealing with any legal issues— you will be in the best possible hands. It was obvious that Mr. Murphy and his team truly cared about me and the outcome. They worked incredibly hard for me and won!

I credit Doug Murphy Law Firm with saving my professional career
I credit Doug Murphy Law Firm with saving my professional career when Doug represented me through the complete dismissal of my DWI. I was arrested on Interstate 45 south of Dallas and north of Houston after I was stopped by a DPS Trooper. This was the most awful thing I have ever experienced in my 40+ years. I needed the best lawyer not just to defend my criminal DWI charge, but I also needed a lawyer with experience representing nurses and doctors before the Texas Board of Nursing and Texas Medical Board. Thanks to Doug Murphy and his professional staff, this was not a career ending experience for me. My advice is do not wait. I was so embarrassed after my arrest and I waited too long before my first contact in hiring a lawyer that my delay caused an automatic suspension of my driver’s license because I missed a deadline. If I had reached out to Doug Murphy sooner, he could have prevented the suspension of my driver’s license. The sooner you call, the sooner Doug Murphy and his staff can get to work for you. Doug did not judge me and was completely understanding in what I had put myself through. Doug is not just a great lawyer, he is a caring person too. Thank you so much Doug!

Excellent and Professional
I was referred to Mr. Murphy through a friend who had multiple DWIs. I met with other lawyers who were less expensive, but none of the other lawyers gave me the level of comfort that Mr. Murphy’s experience and expertise provided me to trust with my future and career. I had a prior DUI in a different state more than 20 years ago, which should have been dropped from my record. The most recent DWI was in Montgomery County, I was essentially pulled over for a tail light out, but “failed” all the field sobriety checks. I had my 8 year old daughter in the car with me, so I was charged with a felony DWI. Mr. Murphy was able to get the charges dropped in five months. The process does not take over night and you must have patience and hire the best attorney. I highly recommend Mr. Murphy because not only is he a great and hard working attorney, but he also has a wonderful Staff/Team working with him that updated and helped me through this nightmare. Mr. Murphy and his Staff/Team truly cared about me and my family.

Great attorney. I highly recommend Doug.
Doug Murphy was highly recommended to me as a “heavy hitter DWI & criminal defense specialist” by a top tier law firm. I was charged with two serious felonies - both completely unfounded. However, the seriousness of them dictated that I obtain the best legal representation available because I could not afford a conviction being in the oil & gas business. Doug handled my case professionally, kept me informed of the process at all times, and managed to keep my stress at a manageable level. Above all else, Doug is an honest, smart, caring man with the competence and experience to get you through the situation you’re about to face. If you have been charged with a DWI or any other criminal offense I strongly recommend that you retain Doug Murphy as your attorney. As he has done for his other clients, Doug achieved excellent results for me. Both felony charges against me were dropped. At my last court appearance, as paperwork was being finalized, a person who worked in the courts came up to me and said “Doug did an excellent job for you. He’s the best.” I could not agree more. Thanks Doug! - J. Holly

Very Satisfied withMr. Murphy!
Doug came highly recommended by a friend, with an impressive experience in DWI cases and their outcomes. Doug helped address all of my anxiety and mapped a path for my case. He secured a dismissal for my case and in a position to have the case expunged from my record. Thanks Doug!

Amazing Representation and knowledge of the law
After being charged with a DWI in Houston, I did my research on the best defense attorney and came up with Doug. I reached out to him late night and we scheduled a meeting the following day. He explained my options and prepared me for the process. His representation and handling of my case was immaculate and ultimately led to a dismissal. I highly recommend Doug for anyone facing a possible DWI charge, there is no one better in Houston.

A true miracle worker
Doug Murphy isn’t just a lawyer that cares about your case he’s a lawyer that cares about you as a person. when I received my 2nd dui I thought my life was over but from the first day I reached out to Doug I felt confident he had my best interests in mind. My case was a tough one but Doug held his composure and my case was dropped when Doug had all the evidence suppressed! He not only works on your case but helps you work on yourself. I attended AA meetings and attended a treatment facility not because he thought it would be good for the case but because it was something I needed to do for myself. Doug keeps you in the loop at all times and never makes you feel like just another client. I can not thank him enough for his services and he’s worth every penny!

Joseph S.
I got 2 DWIs within 2 months of each other 19 years ago. After a complete life change including a wife , three children, a paid off mortgage and a stellar career, I found my self facing a 3rd DUI in 2018. A felony would have been very very detrimental to my professional and personal life. The DA in the county bullied my small town lawyer and I was literally facing prison time. I made the call to Mr. Murphy and explained my situation. Mr. Murphy not only accepted the case that was near the end of proceedings but totally turned the tide and put a stop to the railroading by the DA. Mr. Murphy was able to get the felony reduced to a mis. and in essence, saved my life as I knew it. Mr. Murphy is a stellar attorney, highly intelligent, very keen on court room etiquette and decorum. I would recommend Mr. Murphy for anyone that is in dire need of a light in the dark tunnel of the criminal justice system. I will always be grateful for his expertise that saved me from the precipice of disaster.

Dismissed, NOT GUILTY
I was referred to Mr Murphy by a friend for a serious DWI case of mine. He is as professional as they come and has a movie like court room presence i describe him as a shark. His price may be a little steep but i promise you hes worth every penny, cant put a price on freedom. He got my case dismissed FIRST day of trial, before the jury even made it in the courtroom. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Awesome Outcome
I had a DWI charge that was embarrassing and potentially devasting to my career and personal life - I wanted to be sure I had expert representation - thankfully I was referred to Mr. Murphy and his firm ! From the very first conversation I knew I was in the best hands ! Mr. Murphy is kind , compassionate , communicative and a consummate professional . His knowledge of the law and easy-going demeanor gave me much needed reassurance that the outcome of my case would be handled expediently and with a positive result ! My charge was dismissed and expunged from my record ! Eternally grateful for his service !

"Doug Murphy is one smart lawyer! His natural courtroom talent is a pleasure to watch and I don’t know many other lawyers as dedicated to their clients as Doug. Many years ago I was defending a particularly difficult DWI in Houston. Doug happened to walk in, watch about 5 minutes, and at a break gave me a hint about cross examining this particular police officer. Doug knew his history and shared it with me. It was very helpful and my client enjoyed an acquittal based largely on that cross examination. In sum, Doug is talented, trustworthy, and is willing to teach others. I highly endorse him!"

"I had the pleasure of working with Doug Murphy for 8 plus years. I had the luxury of learning from his 15 plus years of fighting for his clients. Doug will work harder than any other lawyer, all the while, knowing more law than most other lawyers combined. He has a wealth of knowledge, experience, and expertise in all aspects of DWI law. Not only does he tirelessly fight for his clients, he volunteers his time helping other lawyers. Whether it is a lawyer in the courthouse with a question or traveling across the country to teach other lawyers, Doug is always gracious with his time and knowledge. Doug Murphy is a lawyer's lawyer. His family and friends, clients, and fellow lawyers are fortunate to have him; I certainly was to work with him and still am to call him my friend."

"Attorney Murphy is a very skilled and artful litigator of the highest order. His ability to advocate effectively for his position is remarkable. His reputation for achieving great results for the citizen accused by the government of a crime is well known. His reputation for excellence in all matters is a hard earned national one. This reputation far exceeds the bounds of his state as evidenced by this lawyer from Central Pennsylvania not only knowing of him but in that I can personally attest through first hand observation his high level of proficiency in litigation and in the defense of the citizen accused. Superior, fantastic and skilled. He is the one I would put in my corner every time."
