After speaking with numerous DUI attorneys, I hired Attorney Ryan Murphy. He got my case dismissed, never lost my license, saved me thousands of dollars, and took care of everything, including the DMV case, without going to court and having to stand in front of the judge. Now, all my referrals go to Attorney Ryan Murphy, whatever the case is! Hire this guy, he's the best DUI Attorney in Santa Cruz County!

My experience with Mr. Ryan during my trail has been superb. A few months ago was charged with a DUI. I was worried about my military career and realized I needed the assistance of someone trustworthy and knowledgeable to manage this situation. After making multiple phone calls and reading many reviews I felt helpless. I came across Mr. Ryan who was diligent in returning my call and listening to the challenging dilemma I was in. He listened to my problems and was very informative of how we could proceed. Mr. Ryan gave me straight forward answers to all my question and kept me fully updated with information throughout the trail. He was encouraging of possibilities and outcomes of my case. Mr. Ryan superseded my expectation in what an attorney could do for me. He made a very stressful situation bearable with an open mind and for this I am forever grateful.

I have been using Attourney Ryan Murphy for over the last 6 years. During our working relationship he has always been honest and forthright about his ethics in and out of the court.
I have always watched people and how they handle pressured situations. He holds no punches and at the same time has the patience to deal with the critical task of meeting my goals with concern in the outcome. I guess that's why Attourney Ryan Murphy is a member of the U.S. Supreme Court! He can handle it what ever it is for you.

I have known Ryan and his family for over 20 years. I've referred friends to Ryan and he has gotten good results. Ryan is honest, hardworking, and can get the job done. I highly recommend him.

I recently hired Ryan after being arrested for a DUI. Ryan did an excellent job with my case and putting my mind at ease during this stressful time. My DUI was reduced to a Wet and Reckless and Ryan took all the necessary steps to ensure my license did not get suspended. Ryan is professional, compassionalte, and well versed in his field. Hiring Ryan was the smartest thing I did after making a very stupid mistake. He saved me time, money, and my driving record. I would recommend him to anyone needing help with a DUI.

Arrested for public intoxication in downtown Monterey. I had 4 drinks over a very reasonable amount of time and stepped out to meet up with my wife (after her training seminar). As soon as I step onto the sidewalk I was asked to sit down and be quiet. I was not told what was going on until after I had been placed in handcuffs and hauled off to jail (Monterey PD notorious for meaningless PI arrests, several articles on the topic can be found via google).
I spoke with Ryan and he let me know that I had a strong case and I didn't do anything wrong (even if I was intoxicated, my wife drove and I wasn’t causing any sort of scene). He explained the entire process and never rushed me off the phone. He answered every question I had in a very responsive manner. After an attempt to get the case dismissed failed, we set it for trial.
Ryan was able pull my time waiver, forcing the court to set a date for jury trial within 30 days. After that, he was able to keep out all of the evidence with special motions used to address the discovery violations of the prosecutor. Finally he prevented the prosecutor from getting a continuance on my case as earlier he pulled the time waiver.
All in all, the court decided to dismiss my case complete.
Ryan is a shrewd negotiator and skilled trial attorney. Bottom line, if you truly want a fighter, you want Ryan Murphy.

I got my first DUI 0.10 in August and Ryan P Murphy helped me through it with precise knowledge of The Legal System. If I ever run into any trouble again I will definitely be calling up Ryan P Murphy.
He knows the area as well as the people, over all Great Experience. (Considering the circumstance).

I had a DUI almost 5 years ago, and was recently caught driving with a .08-.09 blood alcohol level which was violation of DUI probation. I had a different lawyer for the first DUI, 5 years ago. I decided to get a different lawyer for this offense because the last one wasn't personable and hardly spent any time explaining details to me.
The consultation with Ryan went very well. He explained everything so that I could understand what I was up against. He was always willing to take the time to discuss my case with me and answer my questions without trying to rush through the conversation, and is very personable.
I was very satisfied with my decision to hire Ryan as my lawyer, and would highly recommend him to anyone.

I had interviewed eight lawyers, in addition to Mr. Murphy, and he was by far the most informative regarding specific zero-tolerance related concerns. I was amazed how nebulous this citation code was for many other seasoned attorneys. Even a very nice former judge was not as knowledgeable with the zero-tolerance codes as Mr. Murphy is. He was straight forward and to the point. He was able to tell me, step by step, what was needed and what he would do. This was just the precursor to the outcome in court. Mr. Murphy was able to get my daughter a Not-Guilty outcome on a VC Section 23136(a). With two .02 readings, Mr. Murphy was able to conclude a high calibration, resulting in a solid margin of error, in addition to clarifying, in the defense of my daughter, other conflicting events that transpired at the time. He represented my daughter in court, with both officers present, with the precision of an expert in his field. He will also complete the procedures necessary with the DMV for the return of her driverâ€™s license. As my husband and I are in So.CA and our daughter is in Santa Cruz, it was extremely important for us to know she was in good hands before the judge, as I do believe she would have been â€œsent to the wolvesâ€, given her treatment at the arraignment. I highly recommend Mr. Murphy for legal representation.
