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.


A very good friend of mine referred me to Mr. McMurray. I will be forever grateful. 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. He is a genuinely nice person and the most professional and ethical attorney I have ever met.

When a advocate for children and families hears of an attorney who is doing a great job at fighting for the families in the broken juvenile system and against the broken system of CPS… I just want to thank you from many families as you are a rare Gem to find! Thank you so much and pray for many blessing for your life and know you are a RARE find!
