Mr.murphy is truly a subject matter expert.
Kevin D Murphy was my lawyer for my divorce which was very very complicated and multifaceted more so than your average divorce. He is very professional and is able to break down complicated legal jargon into a single comprehensible format. Mr. Murphy always showed up on time and professionally dressed. He always kept me updated me as soon as he got new information in the divorce. A divorce is a very long and stressful ordeal. Mr. Murphy took the stress out of the entire situation and had my back at every point in the divorce. I was able to call and or email him 24-7 365 with any questions comments or concerns always promptly replied to the phone call or email with all the information I needed and then some. Mr. Murphy was an advocate for me and my children and facilitated the best possible outcome of the divorce. Mr. Murphy sent me a well documented monthly invoice with all of the fees associated which always checked out. He was worth every penny, and also is a pleasure to be around he's very charismatic and very experienced. To list a few of the items that Mr Murphy did are as follows. 1. He sat down with me and took the time to establish my sworn financial statement that a corporate accountant could go through with a fine-tooth comb. 2. He set up a private investigator. 3. He helped triangulate between child support payments and the payment registry as well as triangulate with the child support enforcement office technician. 4. He recommended and gave excellent tax advice for the fiscal year of which we got divorced which was very complicated. 5. He triangulated with CPS caseworker and local sheriff's involved. 6. Here ran background checks on Associated individuals involved. 7. He was able to pull from all of the information I had given him and extract what he needed to write very professional legal documents. These are just some of the skills that mr. Murph has. His attention to detail is amazing he caught things that I totally missed. If you are going through a divorce I would personally and only recommend Kevin D Murphy he is a multi-tasker extraordinaire and truly a subject matter expert at what he does. He has improved me and my children's quality of life significantly and alleviated the stress out of the whole entire situation.

A Single Mom's Hero
I had the opportunity of working with Attorney Kevin Murphy for my parental allocation (custody) issues with my son's father. Mind you...I spoke with more then 8 other firms who all insisted that my specific case required a $10,000 retainer and would take at least a year in court because we live in 2 separate states. As a single mother, this was so discouraging. I worked with Kevin, and he was quick, responsive, and didn't waste any of my time or his time with filing, paperwork, advice, court dates, etc. His billing and invoicing was clear and concise and there were never any surprises. Very laid back, but professional. Never came across as a "pushy salesman" lawyer, and helped with everything I asked.

Great Lawyer
Kevin was an awesome attorney. He took my case when I was at the end of my rope, I couldn't figure out where to turn, what to do, and had a court date pending. Mr. Murphy exceeded every expectation I had of him, and of any lawyer. He always had time to talk to me, he was quick with response, and even after it was all over he went above and beyond with the final issues I had. I can't recommend him enough, I feel like he was able to handle all attorneys involved in the case and didn't take any of their posturing. After months of being told what to do, how to do it, when I can see my kids and when I can't all at the whim of my ex and her lawyer, someone stood up and fought for me, and kept fighting for me. Kevin is definitely the lawyer I want in my corner for any future issues that come up.

Great Trusting Attorney!!!
I have already referred Kevin to a few friends that are going to through the same things I went through for custody. During my first conversation with Kevin, he was very informative, knowledgeable, and felt very trustworthy and genuine. I had debating on hiring an attorney because of the cost and experiences in the past with other attorneys that I had, but after our initial conversation, I knew he was the right one for my case. Kevin always made me aware of all my options and helped me threw probably one the toughest times in my life. I will use him and his firm again if any issues should ever arise. The relief I felt knowing that he was on my side and fighting for what I wanted for my child was wonderful.

BEST LAWYER!!!
Kevin D. Murphy is what all lawyers should be. Kevin is such a respectful man, caring, treated me as if I was a family member, treating everyone with respect no matter their circumstances ...He was in constant contact with me re-guarding my cases. When I had to leave messages he always contacted me right away, he always explained step by step all the court proceedings where I could understand what was happening...One of the most important things I appreciated about Kevin Murphy was when I had to meet him at his office I never sat there for long periods of time and when in his office he was never in a rush, he always took his time to listen...There is nothing I can complain about and if I ever need a lawyer Kevin Murphy will be the first I will call...If you need a great Lawyer call Kevin Murphy!!!

Very satisfied with his services.
Kevin Murphy is a reliable lawyer. He understands the law and worked diligently on my case. I felt comfortable with decisions that were made, and Kevin always kept me updated on a regular basis. He responded promptly to my calls and emails; and he made me feel comfortable and secure during a child custody process that is, in most cases, stressful. I would definitely recommend Kevin Murphy for all Family and child custody cases.

Kind and Compassionate
I had the most difficult task of filing for divorce this year. To say that divorce is devastating is an understatement. Kevin was so kind, and really took the time to listen to me, my needs and my wants. The meetings were conveniently scheduled, and he kept them as short as possible. Kevin was also very communicative regarding the process and what needed to be done. He would simply ask me for the information needed, and fill out all of the long and complicated paperwork for me. He also did an amazing job explaining the paperwork, what it meant and what my rights were. On top of this, I also moved out of state. Even from 1500 miles away, the communication was amazing, and I never felt uninformed. Thanks to Kevin, this experience was far from the nightmare I expected. Working with him was a pleasantry, even though the circumstances were less than ideal.

The BEST Attorney I've EVER Had!
Mr. Murphy represented me on a (bogus) assault charge. To my surprise, he was flexible around my schedule and took a real interest in my case. I was unfamiliar with most aspects of the legal process but Mr. Murphy answered all of my questions thoroughly and in an easy to understand way. This alone raised my comfort level as the trial neared, but the additional preparation he gave me by reviewing and practicing all potential questions made me confident. He even showed up early on trial day to ensure I was ready and to answer any last minute questions. He was professional and confident in court and helped get my case DISMISSED! I can honestly say I couldn't have done it without him. If you want a knowledgeable, hardworking, and caring attorney, then I can't recommend Kevin Murphy enough! Thanks again Kevin!
