Mr. Murphy is a graduate of both Fordham University (Fordham College at Rose Hill, Bronx, NY) and Fordham University School of Law, where he was a member of the Fordham Urban Law Journal and recipient of the Archibald R. Murray Public Service Award.

After working with the legal division of the New York City Council Finance Division and the Queens County District Attorney’s Office, he joined a boutique litigation firm in downtown Manhattan. For the better part of a decade, Mr. Murphy’s legal and advocacy skills were honed and tested, while handling cases ranging from felony criminal defense to matrimonial law, personal injury, and immigration law, in courtrooms in all five boroughs of New York City and beyond.

Today, Mr. Murphy is a named partner in the Westport office of Maya Murphy, P.C., where he focuses primarily on family law (dissolution of marriage, child custody, and support proceedings) both in Fairfield County and New York. His clients consist of husbands and wives with high net worth and complex asset/income structures, individuals with matters involving sensitive child custody issues, as well as those seeking post-judgment modifications of alimony, custody, and other claims for relief. His experience includes all aspects of family law representation, from investigation and discovery through trial. He regularly represents clients with urgent issues concerning domestic violence, child safety, and intervention by the Department of Children and Families.

Mr. Murphy often utilizes his considerable experience as an aggressive advocate in the family law arena to serve as a neutral mediator for couples seeking a non-adversarial alternative to divorce litigation. Working in this capacity, he assists divorcing individuals to reach accord on their disputes, to mutually serve their interests as well as the benefit of any minor children involved in the process.

Super Lawyers Magazine has named Mr. Murphy to the Connecticut Rising Stars list as one of the top up-and-coming attorneys in Connecticut for 2012 and 2013. Each year, no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state receive this honor. The selection for this respected list is made by the research team at Super Lawyers (a Thomson Reuters business) which is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a rigorous multi-phased process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews by practice area. The Rising Stars lists are published nationwide in Super Lawyers magazines, in leading city and regional magazines across the country.

Mr. Murphy is admitted to practice law in the States of Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey, as well as the Federal Districts of Connecticut, New Jersey, and the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York. He has been a member of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association and the Bridgeport Regional Business Council. He is currently a member of the Greenwich Chapter of BNI. Mr. Murphy also serves as a mentor and academic coach for Bridgeport high school students as part of the Horizons program at Greens Farms Academy. He resides with his wife and children in Fairfield, CT.
