They took the time to understand my entire situation, advised me how to proceed immediately before I had even decided to hire them, and then kept me up to date and focused on the things I needed to do to win my case. Very transparent and diligent. I would definitely recommend if you’re looking for a good criminal lawyer.”

      Kyle M.
      Former Client
    • “I was wrongfully charged with crimes I didn’t commit and have never needed a lawyer in my life before this. A close friend referred me to Murphy Dolan and I was more than impressed with their professionalism and competence. It really helped to feel like I had someone on my side that believed me and my story AND they ended up getting all of my charges dropped, thank you guys!!”

      Janelle M.
      Former Client
    • “Murphy Dolan was there for me when no one else was. I wasn’t going to even get a lawyer because funds were tight, but wow am I glad I did. These guys got my charges reduced and help me stay out of jail and stay with my kids. I would highly recommend giving them a call to see what your options are.”

      Rick G.
      Former Client
    • “I had a pressing legal issue that coincided with Dan leaving his previous firm to form his own. I stayed with Dan in this and I can report the following. Dan provided clear advice and all the ins and outs of the case. I was treated well and with honesty throughout. I can fully recommend Dan and his new firm to you. Note, Dan has experience with crown prosecution and defence, which is a major benefit.”

      Keith T.
      Former Client
    • “I highly recommend Daniel Murphy. I called him on behalf of my brother who was facing second-degree murder and assault charges.

      He takes the matter very seriously and provides successful defenders for the rights.

      He helped us with a payment plan after retaining him. He is very honest and trustworthy. My brother’s charges dropped down to manslaughter.”
