Legal Practice Areas

Marriage Law

Family law issues can be extremely stressful, and we are here to support you through your experience and help you move forward.



We’ve all dreamed of finding love, but not every romance was made to last. Getting a divorce can have long-term effects, both emotionally and legally.

Child Custody

Working out a parenting agreement that covers child custody can be difficult when there’s animosity between you and the other parent. 


The adoption process can be emotionally and legally complex, so it’s best to find the right legal team with the right track record. Discover how we can help you.

Living Together

Living together, also called cohabitation, can sometimes also result in legal issues unforeseen at the time a couple decides to move in together.

Domestic Partnerships

Not every happy, committed couple chooses to get married. A domestic partnership offers couples similar benefits as those provided to married couples.

      Former Client
    • “This firm is awesome! Dan Murphy represented me he addressed any doubts I had about my case and gave me the correct legal advise when I asked him. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Dan Murphy got my charges dropped within months and for that I would say hes not only a winner but a Champion! I am so glad I had him representing me!”

      Leon B.
      Former Client
    • “Dan Murphy gave me the best option so everyone involved didn’t have to waste their time. It was super easy from the beginning to the end, and I’m very pleased with the way it turned out. The staff are very professional and attentive to meet your needs. I hope you don’t have to meet a lawyer, but if you do, I highly recommend this firm.”

      Kang D.
      Former Client
    • “Shopping around for lawyers I was lucky to find Dan Murphy. I felt he always had my back during this fiasco of court issues. Dan and the staff were professionals handling my case and I would recommend them to anyone needing a lawyer.”

      Adrian C.
      Former Client
    • “Dan was extremely helpful in guiding me through a process I knew nothing about. With this assistance I was able to receive the right result and am pleased to recommend their services.”

      Dave J.
      Former Client
    • “I’m so thankful I found this firm! 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.”

      Former Client
