At The Murphy Law Practice, I specifically focus on Employment Law. I know every square inch of this playing field. I employ every tenet of the law to ensure my clients enjoy dignity in their workplace or damages due.

I take pride in being a part of a very small fraternity of lawyers, idealist heaven-bent on correcting injustice. If I take your case it is because I wholeheartedly believe you have suffered a grave injustice and I am committed to helping you secure your entitlements enshrined in the law.

If you have suffered discrimination, wage abuse, sexual harassment, retaliation and/or any form of mistreatment at the hands of your employer and you would like redress, then I am probably the attorney for you.

Highly Recommend
Attorney Alia Derrick and Marjorie Murphy are a dynamic duo. I had a horrible experience with two attorneys prior to retaining their services. They are both excellent communicators and kept me informed. They were on top of everything. I am very pleased with the outcome. I would highly recommend them.

Energetic! Compassionate! Competent! Honest! Superior!
Marjorie Murphy is an AMAZING attorney! She worked tirelessly on my case and made it her mission to find resolution on my behalf. Ms. Murphy's work ethic is unparalleled and her professionalism is refreshing. She never wasted time; instead, she began working hard right from the outset. She fought long and hard against a giant corporation and never backed down. When I had doubts, she reassured me. When I had questions, she educated me. She also took my financial situation in mind and often presented me with several options, detailing the pros and cons of each. I highly recommend Attorney Marjorie Murphy!

Highly Recommended,Compassionate, Knowledgeable, Responsive and Communicative Attorney
I can sit here and write all day about the Great Customer service, Compassion, knowledge and Great Degree of Separation that separates Ms. Murphy from any other attorney that I have dealt with or come into contact with but it still would not suffice to say just how Highly Satisfied I am with the overall experience of having her as my attorney. She is a Dedicated Advocate for employees who may suffer from adverse actions through workplace Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, Retaliation, Whistle Blower cases and she is also Great with Personal Injury, Immigration and Family Law. I went to several attorney's and had the door closed in my face before finally stumbling upon Ms. Murphy. She is fair and selfless, she fights for your rights and for what is Right, Fair and Most Importantly...... Justice. I Highly Recommend Ms. Murphy to anyone that is in need of Superior Representation and a Strong Advocate for Employee Rights Ms. Marjorie A. Murphy is Definitely a Winner.

Great Attorney
Really professional and knowledgeable. Marjorie responds fast and in a timely manner. We had a great success on my Immigration case and I’m proud to be a US Citizen. Thank to you for making this possible. I would use you again if I ever need to.

True determination!
Determine is the first word that comes to mind to describe this amazing attorney. Not only have I had a successful Immigration case with Marjorie but I have also returned to have her represent me on an Employment Case. Words can’t explain the desire and passion she has to help you every step of the way. My first call to her was me in tears not understanding where or what I needed to do to help my family. From that call and until now she has shown compassion and guidance. She never once promised me unrealistic things the time frame she provides was accurate. She keeps me informed and up to date. She there to listen and always advise me. I would recommend her to anyone who facing a service she provides. I really would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart! The Ndong Nkoghe Family.

Condescending and Unprofessional.
I hired Marjorie as the Plaintiff. Unfortunately, she did not properly serve the defendant, and the judge had to schedule a hearing for insufficient service. The entire time, she approached me in a very condescending way. Although her persona is very arrogant and aggressive, she yelled at me the majority of the time and I constantly had to repeat myself the entire time. When I fired her, she biasly charged me of 20 hours of work she did not commit. In addition, she even threatened to put a lean out on my case.
