Civil Disputes and Criminal Defense

Criminal Defense: Shaw & Murphy has decades of experience ranging from small altercations (like harassment or assault) to drug possession and DWI to felonies including arson, sexual, assault and other serious charges.

Alternative Dispute Resolution: To resolve legal conflicts without litigation, we have extensive expertise in helping you decide if your problem can be better resolved in mediation, arbitration, or Collaborative Law.

Personal Injury: We represent individuals with personal injury or property damage caused by automobile accidents, assault, or other incidents. We can process claims or proceed to trial. Our firm can also represent survivors in wrongful death actions.

Appeals: We regularly help clients appeal adverse trial results. Mr. Murphy has numerous reported decisions in New York's Appellate Division, Third Department, among other courts.

Trials: We regularly take cases to trial in a variety of state courts, including Family Court, Supreme Court and the Court of Claims.
