In January 2017, we opened up the Nicholas J. Murphy Foundation Pro Bono Clinic to help veterans and members of the Armed Forces and their families that need help in family law matters, all in honor of our fallen hero and son, Nicholas J. Murphy. Nick was killed on November 19, 2016 while serving in the United States Navy.

The Nicholas J. Murphy Foundation is making a difference each and every day, not only through Nick's pro bono legal clinic here at Murphy & Dunn, P.C., but also through the educational, military, legal and charitable grants being given out to support our community and people throughout the United States. Watch Nick's video and you will see the type of person he was. Each one of us at Murphy & Dunn, P.C. strives to be the same. Here is Nick's story: American Red Cross Heartland Hero 2017.

We strive every day to be the Man in the Arena like Nick was. That is why we are paying it forward every day to help our community on Nick's behalf.
