Mr. McMurray was my lawyer when I was arrested by the SB County Sheriff’s department. I won’t go into details, but I was in serious trouble… Mr. McMurray was truthful and helpful through the entire process. I ended up avoiding jail time all together and I haven’t looked back since.  I can happily say he got me a second chance.


Elvia is really responsible at her work she is very on it she does help you with whatever problem is going on in your case, she is an awesome attorney

I definitely recommend her she was very understanding in what I was asking for and will definitely get you granted what it is that your asking for. I am very satisfied with her work.


I couldn’t recommend Elvia highly enough. When the legal system left me hurt and confused, she fought fiercely and got me results.

Elvia believes in what she does and her passion shines through in her work. She couldn’t have done a better job for me and I know she’ll fight just as successfully for you.


A very good friend of mine referred me to Mr. McMurray. He is an extremely intelligent person. He is diligent in his work and a true advocate for his clients. He takes a personal interest in understanding how you want to be represented. He then brings a wealth of experience and knowledge of the law and manages your case in an expedient way.
