"Brendan was an absolute pleasure to work with. Every question (there were a lot!) or concerns I've had regarding the case, he was prompt and professional with his answers. I respect the fact that he's an extremely hard worker (he made calls to me on Sundays-when he should be home, enjoying his time with his family). Hence, kept me in the loop & gave me great legal advice. THANK YOU BRENDAN for your services!

- Anna L.

"My experience with Attorney Murphy was pleasant.  He did a great job explaining the eviction process as well as what I could do for future tenants to make my leases more secure. He gave great advice and suggestions."

- Molly P.


When debt troubles arise, they usually stem from promising situations or good intentions. Maybe you started a business that went off the rails; maybe you just tried to take advantage of a promotional annual percentage rate on a prestigious credit card; and maybe you just needed one big loan to buy that big purchase, whether that was an engagement ring, new car, or much needed home repair. At McAvoy & Murphy, we understand the emotional toll that financial troubles can have on individuals, families, and businesses. Are you looking at liquidating your debts and starting fresh? Are you determined to pay back some of your financial obligations while guaranteeing that you can keep that brand new car you bought a couple years ago? Or, are you simply wondering what debt relief options exist outside of the nuclear option known as bankruptcy? Whatever your situation may be, let the attorneys at McAvoy & Murphy Law Firm take the uncertainty and stress out of your financial difficulties. Our bankruptcy lawyers are experienced with these life-changing situations and are ready to put you at peace and back on the track to financial success!
