      Kyle M.

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

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.

    The most awful law firm for trust, I wanted to get a little advice from them about the street fight I had and I was a... complete victim. A completely drunk non-professional lawyer called me on Sunday evening and rather than give me advice he tried to scare me into believing that you will lose your clean criminal background and we will save you, all you have to do is pay the first $ 3,000. all of that 15 minutes he didnt even care about my case, he was just repeating about I may lose my clean criminal backgroundread more

    Highly professional and genuinely concerning for the client. When you go to a criminal Lawyer you are usually anxious... and worried about a variety of outcomes. Dan ensures that the client is at peace. His superior law knowledge and prosecutor experience comes in handy to fight for his clients. The process of keeping the client informed and availability for answering the questions/concerns is what I liked the most. Going above and beyond to get you out of trouble even without stepping in court is his specialty. Lastly but not the least he also helps with extra supplementary documents requests which is awesome for someone with busy schedule.Keep the good work up and running. Thank you so much more

    Dan Murphy assisted me in a personal matter and from day 1 kept to his promise. He was there when I needed questions... answered and kept me updated thoroughly throughout the experience regardless of his busy schedule. I would recommend this firm and especially this individual to anyone who needs help from a respective and prompt individual who didn’t stop until I had closure. It can be a long and gruelling process but he made it that much more bearable. Great sense of humour but when it comes down to what matters the most— he’s all business. Dan Murphy gets it more
