About Kathryn J Murphy

Attorney Biography

A highly goal-oriented family attorney, Kathryn Murphy is skilled in answering one of the most important concerns clients have about divorce: seeing an efficient, satisfactory end to the process. Kathryn initially helps clients establish their priorities, then outlines their options for achieving resolution. Drawing on her extensive trial experience as a family lawyer, Kathryn helps clients anticipate the likely impact of their decisions so they can choose wisely.

Clients value Kathryn’s thoroughness, especially in complex property and child custody cases. Her expertise includes cases involving the valuation of a business, closely held business interests, relocation, characterization of property, and premarital agreements. Kathryn embraces collaborative law when it is the right fit for clients, and she brings considerable skills to the courtroom when litigation is deemed necessary. Above all, Kathryn’s goal is to negotiate a topnotch settlement for her clients. She is known for establishing a close connection with her clients, standing firm with them and working together as a team to support the best interests of them and their children.
