Brenda is the best around
I hired Brenda a few years ago. My ex took me to court twice. Not only did he lose twice, but I got my child support raised and I didn't have to say one word to the judge! She is amazing. Forever grateful and I recommend her to anyone that needs THE BEST! Thank you Brenda.

A lawyer with professionalism and high ethic standards
I truly appreciated Ms. Murdock for her professional assistance on my case. She handled my case with thoroughness and decisiveness. Her law firm holds high ethic standards - put my interests first, and charged me fairly. Thank, Brenda!

Brenda Murdock - an experienced partner in family law issues
I have been working with Brenda Murdock for nearly two years on my case that has proven difficult on many levels. Brenda has guided me through all facets of this case while also listening to my points on the issues. We work together on a course of action and her responses are based on the issues in my case. Brenda is responsive and does her research on the issues as necessary and works to temper the emotions in her cases by sticking with facts and maintaining professionalism. Brenda guides with finesse and compassion and delivers results.

The best in the business
Brenda Murdock is an outstanding attorney! She is extremely knowledgable in family law. She is always available for questions and follow up. There has never been a time where a phone call or electronic communication wasn't returned in an expeditious manner. She cares about her clients and their children and is always looking out for their best interests. Mrs. Murdock has always been straight forward and guided me in the right direction. If she advises you to do anything, just do it without hesitation. I can say without any reservation that You can trust her judgement and guidance. Whenever a friend or coworker is faced with a family law issue I always refer them to Mrs. Murdock. I cannot say enough good things about Mrs. Murdock. If you are in need of an attorney you cannot go wrong with hiring Mrs. Murdock.

Lied to me
I asked her if it was worth fighting for what I deserved and she said”Yes” then the next visit she said there really wasn’t anything she could do, of course that was after I put down my retainer! Carolyn Foord
