  • Mr. Murphy was excellent at educating me on the process of divorce and what to expect.

    “Mr. Murphy was excellent at educating me on the process of divorce and what to expect. He assisted me in drafting a Marital Separation Agreement that my (now) ex-husband and I were able to come to agreement in signing, just over a month after we initiated the process. I found Mr. Murphy's staff so welcoming and helpful through this entire process that it made an extremely stressful time a little less difficult.”

  • I can always count on receiving timely and substantive advice

    “Sarah has been working on my divorce and follow-on support/visitation issues for several years. I can always count on receiving timely and substantive advice regarding any situation or question I may have, no matter how novel. I think her best trait is that she knows my situation inside and out and understands the mindset of my ex-wife. This ability allows her to provide advice on my case that I may be blindsided by because I am too close to the trees to see the forest. I cannot describe how much confidence I have knowing that I have an attorney like Sarah in my corner for any future battles with my ex.”
