Practicing Law since 1975
Reliable • Knowledgeable • Understanding
Welcome to the website of the Law Office of Stephen J. Murphy. I have been practicing law in Montpelier since 1975. As a sole practitioner, I directly handle each case that comes into my office. In my law firm, I have responded to and served the needs of countless clients having legal issues in Northern and Central Vermont, including Washington, Orange, Lamoille, Caledonia, Windsor, Rutland and Chittenden counties, as well as other areas of the state.
I have extensive experience representing and advising clients on a variety of legal matters, including, but not limited to:
Within the family law section of my practice, I routinely help individuals and families engaged in divorce, parentage, relief from abuse, juvenile proceedings, child custody disputes, and child support matters.
The real estate experience I have allows me to assist my business clients in drafting, negotiating and interpreting the terms of various types of sales, purchases and lease agreements, completion of title searches for commerial, residential and other properties.
As an integral part of my practice, I provide clients with a wide range of counseling and advocacy services in matters related to their civil litigation lawsuits, as well as representation to commence or defend against civil litigation.
In assisting clients with wills and estate issues, I help them in planning and administering their assets and estates both during their lifetime and after death. I also assist clients with guardianship, trust, and adoption matters.
