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.


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.


Mr. McMurray did an amazing job helping my son through a series of negotiations. He researched the case, attended meetings, and supported my son one hundred percent. He had a great rapport with my son and helped him feel less anxious about the proceedings. I recommend Mr. McMurray wholeheartedly.

Past Client

In a field that many people don’t know much about until circumstances force them to seek legal help, Elvia looks out for her client’s interests above her own. She responded quickly to my concerns and explained everything to me in a manner which I understood. Elvia is trustworthy and honest. I highly recommend Elvia!
