We know that working with an attorney can be intimidating or uncomfortable.  And let's face it- calling on an attorney for help is probably one of the last things you truly want to be doing.   At Murphy Family Law, our attorneys and mediators help take away the uncertainty and mystery inherent in the legal process, whether it's assisting you with your divorce, move-a-way matter, support issue, or custody challenges.  

We believe all people deserve high quality representation in the courtroom and at the negotiating table.  For your litigation needs, when you hire Shawn, you hire a down-to earth, friendly, and highly skilled family law specialist.  Our clients receive an honest and realistic assessment of their case from the beginning to end based upon our extensive litigation and trial experience.  Our mediators are highly trained in family law matters and skilled in alternative dispute resolution techniques.

Quality Representation You Deserve

Thus, you can be assured that we are committed to superior legal representation, whether it's in the courtroom or mediating a fair settlement.
