Thorough, caring, and overall remarkable
I retained the services of Danielle's firm and was extremely lucky to have her assigned to my custody case. Through all the drama and difficulty my ex put forth, Danielle was on top of things, explaining things each step of the way, ensuring what became a 15-month process was as painless as could be. I cannot thank her enough for helping me gain full custody of my daughters after nearly 10 years apart! I didn't think it was possible, but Danielle helped make it a reality. I cannot thank her enough.

A Superstar
Danielle impressed me from the moment I called. She took the time on that initial call to listen and explain. She is confident, knowlegeable, experienced, responsive, compassionate and smart. During this very trying time she helped me to see the big picture and guide me through the process. I never ever doubted that she was on my side and always made suggestions that were in my best interest. I could not be happier with Danielle's counsel.

Absolutely fantastic !
I was going through a really bad divorce with a lawyer who never answered my calls, texts or emails and made it seem like my case wasn’t that important to him. I was recommended by a friend to consult with Danielle Murray and everything changed. From the first day she took me as her client , I knew I made the right choice and things started to move forward. Danielle , always answered my calls and/or responded back to me in a timely manner. She is extremely caring, diligent and knowledgeable in the law and I couldn’t be happier for all that she has done for me and my children during a difficult time. I Highly Recommend anyone, to at least consult with Danielle, before choosing someone to represent them in a really difficult time.

Compassion, Honesty and Insight
Working with Danielle during this most difficult time was more like working with a friend/therapist who knew family law. Her compassion, honesty and insight was invaluable in getting me through a custody/visitation petition.

Danielle Murray
Danielle Murray did a fabulous job representing me in my separation from.my spouse. She was very thorough and extremely professional. Anytime I had a question or a concern she was right there with an answer. Any email or text I sent was literally answered in minutes. In the end the settlement she had gotten for me was more than favorable for myself. I truly couldn't have asked for better. Very impressed with her. She was referred to me by another lawyer and he had said she was exceptional. And I agree.

Excellent attorney for family matters (peaceful resolution).
Danielle was excellent when it came to the peaceful resolution of my divorce case. Her communication was effective and on point. She was available after hours when I needed her for some urgent intervention related to child visitation. She has a lot of knowledge about the matters related to family court and can guide you in the right direction for a peaceful mediation / resolution of your divorce case.

Amazing attorney
First of all just to be clear, as a police Officer with 34 years on I have dealt with every type of Lawyer imaginable. I was going through a divorce and to say that I was stressed out was an under statement. Danielle Murray was an absolute life saver. Not only was she very knowledgeable in her field but she was very kind and empathetic to my situation. If I had to call her, she was always excellent with returning calls in a timely manner. Danielle answered all my questions, no matter how ridiculous they may have been and was very patient with me. Most of all she made a very bad situation a lot less stressful. Please feel free to email me if you have questions regarding hiring her as an attorney.

Attorney for Family Court Issues
I started my court process with a different attorney which was an absolute nightmare. Switching attorneys was nerve wracking but also terrifying. You always hear about horrible experiences with no communication and how most attorneys are just money hungry etc. But than I came across the office where Danielle works. When I had called initially I was impressed with whom I had spoken to and he then directed me to meet with Danielle. I can honestly say I couldn’t of asked for a better attorney, she never once steered me in the wrong direction and was always honest with me from the gate about what was or wasn’t going to happen. I never had any issues with getting in touch with her, there were even times when I reached out expecting not to get a response asap but she really was always there when I needed her to be. With her I never felt like it was about a paycheck or like I was a just another case. I never felt rushed or pushed out. Whenever I called or came to the office, I was given as much time as I had needed and felt heard. Which I feel is so important, especially in cases like mine. If I ever needed an attorney again she is definitely the first person I would go back to, and I would recommend her a thousand percent to anyone that needed an attorney. She was a blessing to work with and turned what started out as an absolutely awful experience into a much easier one, because anyone going through court in general knows it isn’t a cake in the park but having her fighting for me and my children made it so so much easier!

Dedicated, Professional, Always Well Prepared
Danielle was my attorney though a long and difficult child custody / support matter. She was extremely professional, very well prepared, knew intimately the details of my case, and importantly is very knowledgeable of the law. Danielle made me feel confident that my opinion was heard and the subject child and my best interest were her priorities. Danielle was always honest and direct with me on what the best course of action to take was, even in situations where I had a different opinion. As result of Danielle's dedication and hard work the matter was eventually settled to the benefit of all parties involved. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Danielle
