About Us

Business as usual? Hardly. When Murphy Austin formed in 1999, we made a deliberate choice to turn away from the classic “big law firm” approach. From the outset, we have adhered to the simple guiding principle that our clients will always get the attention and service they deserve. We strive constantly to both excel in client service and to exceed our clients’ expectations.

What separates Murphy Austin from the rest of the pack? As your legal counsel, we know that we must understand you, and your business, to be able to deliver the outcome that you need and expect. Your achievements, your successes, your goals…those are at the very core of our focus and we take them to heart.

By investing in a long-term relationship with you, and becoming an integral part of your success, together we can play a significant role in both helping you achieve your goals and thereby help shape a more vibrant and healthy community. Big picture thinking? Perhaps, but it’s what we believe. And it’s who we are. Taking the time, commitment and passion to build a deeper, a more broad and long-term relationship with each of our clients is what makes Murphy Austin so different.

While we are honored and flattered by the many awards and recognition our attorneys and our firm receive each year, that recognition is a reflection of the successes of our clients. We also understand that, in the highly competitive world of legal services, superior legal expertise is the “base line” expectation of every client. Centered on the areas of business, real estate, construction, labor and employment, healthcare, tax and commercial litigation, our teams consist of astute professionals, working together in highly-integrated practices that provide personalized access to expertise exactly when and where you need it.

Your success is our sole and unwavering focus. We will always have your back. And we will always go the distance.
