This means that clients have easy and hassle-free access to their attorney via cell phone or text message. This means home and hospital visits to make in-person meetings convenient for you. This means legal services that are provided in a novel and supportive way – something unusual in the legal business.
Joe graduated from Duquesne University Law School in 1998 with distinction. During the credit crisis of the late 2000’s, Joe was recognized for providing pro bono legal services to people in serious need. Joe’s legal arguments have been incorporated into a number of published opinions on subjects as diverse as real estate law and consumer protection law. Joe has been published twice in Juris Magazine.
Joe clerked for Justice Russell M. Nigro on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and worked in private practice after graduating from law school. When founding The J. Murphy Firm in 2000, Joe envisioned a law firm that would provide a friendly, comfortable, supportive, and safe environment for his clients. The J. Murphy Firm is the realization of that vision.
During his free time, Joe enjoys time with his wife and two sons, gardening, and fishing.
