    Michael is the epitome of presenting himself as an informed professional and cordial member of our network of business affiliates. When he reviews our business documents, I am more than confident that we will be presenting ourselves in a solid position, both legally and ethically.

    Shawn Murphy was attorney for my divorce case in January 2012. Could not get the other side to settle with me. Waste of my resources....... went to court over a split of assets issue and after we came out of courtroom, which he did no standing up for myself as the defendant, had the audacity to say the judge "raped" me over the coals. Finally dismissed him May 2015 and still "legally" married. Not happy at all.

    8 years ago I filled for divorce, it took over a year to complete and should not have. Murphy did not want to fight for me, all he wanted was to collect his fees. I did all of the work for him, when we would go to court he would flip through his documents like he was the most unprepared attorney ever. He did not fight for anything. I found out he was best friends with my ex's attorney and then everything made sense. The only time that this law firm did any good for me was when THorner rep me.
