Here’s what some of our clients and colleagues have to say about Murphy Jones Law!
I could not have asked for a better team to guide me through this process. Mr. Murphy was honest with me from the first phone call regarding what the process for my case would look like. He and his team were quick to respond to all of my e-mails and clearly advised me through each step of the process. He was both respectful of my time and conscious of my expenses.While I hope to never require his services again, I cannot recommend Mr. Murphy and his team highly enough! He is a strong advocate for his clients and I am so grateful for all that he and his team did for me!If you're a Nurse looking for help, call Mr. Murphy!

I recently retained Kevin to handle my administrative matter. He seemed knowledgeable regarding administrative procedures and practices, and promptly returned all calls and e-mails. I would highly recommend Kevin, as he is a highly experienced and well-connected local attorney!

I am extremely happy and grateful that I had Kevin represent me for case. I don’t believe there could have been a better outcome. Kevin and his amazing team were tremendously knowledgeable in helping me understand how to navigate legal matters I knew nothing of. I did not feel judged for my mishaps and if I had questions, I always received prompt responses. Both Kevin and Kim worked to help me get the best possible outcome and words can’t express how thankful I am!

Kevin and his staff were a dream team for my BRN case. They were very up front, knowledgeable, and first class professionals. They cleared my investigation and, after working with them, I’m confident they were the only ones that have the skill and competency to get the outcome I had. Thank you so much for representing nurses!

Kevin explained plainly and clearly exactly what I was dealing with regarding my license. He told me to take what the Board was offering otherwise I could open myself up to formal discipline. Kevin could have said fight, but he was very honest and direct and saved me from paying him for something I didn't need or want to be involved. I appreciate his honesty and spelling things out plainly to me.

Kathleen is knowledgeable and brilliant attorney as well as an amazing and kind-hearted person. She understands how hard it can be for nurses who are facing challenging/difficult times during their careers especially with this ongoing pandemic. She handled my case with ease, where you felt as if she were saying "Don't worry, I got this!" and meant it. She had excellent communication with me and followed up with each aspect of my situation since day one to make sure she would produce a positive and fruitful outcome. Would highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you to Attorney Kathleen and her team!

I just wanted to thank you and express my surprise and delight at how I was treated, as well as the way you handle your firm. After sending you a $3500 retainer, my situation developed and I changed my plans to seek reinstatement of my professional license. As has been my experience in the past with attorneys, I assumed I could kiss my retainer good bye. But to my pleasure and surprise, your firm actually charged the limited time you had spent reviewing my case, and refunded the balance of my retainer to me. It has been my experience that once the terms retainer and attorney are used in the same sentence, the money is gone regardless of whether or not a finger is lifted at all. You have proven to be both honest, honorable, and unique. Thank you for somewhat restoring my faith in your profession. However, anyone who has ever spent time dealing with our "just us" system knows that good faith and fair dealing in that arena is rare to extinct. For outsiders there is no Justice unless you buy it, and it does not come cheap. But these guys are a refreshing group in the law arena. God bless them and I will be back if I am ever in need of legal services again. Thank you and best wishes in the future.

Im a travel nurse & a real person leaving a review. I had concerns about signing away my protections working Covid contracts. I spoke with Kevin Murphy on the phone for 30 minutes & he answered all my questions. He offered me superb advice on several travel nursing matters I have been concerned about in our industry this year and I can tell he genuinely cares. He took time to advise me and he did not charge me. He truly is a lawyer with integrity. I am leaving this review because I hope if you are in situation where you need a lawyer, you will read this and feel assured that you found the help you need. I believe he has this business in his bloodline, to look after professionals licenses, and I will hire this firm if I ever get in a pickle and I feel confident that if I ever need them I don't have to worry. They are all very nice in the office too. I spoke with Kim & Maxime. Just very friendly, patient, professional & easy to talk to people. Never rushed me, listened & gave honest and sound wisdom. Very happy & I feel safe knowing your firm is here if I ever need you =) Thank you

I was in need of an administrative law attorney after receiving a Board of Behavioral Sciences ("BBS") complaint due to a harassment complaint by a former employer of a few years ago. I was extremely worried about the situation and not sleeping due to many facts being distorted in a way that could have caused serious legal repercussions. Mr Murphy was referred to me by a friend and right away he stood out from the other lawyers I had spoken to. His fees were very reasonable and he was noticeably pissed off about how I had felt that this employer had retaliated against me and attacked my religious beliefs. Unlike other lawyers he wouldn't allow me to start thinking about the possibility of probation. He was confident in conveying his thoughts about potential disciplinary actions. He thought that at worst I could be looking at a Public Reprimand but that he thought he might be able to do even better than that. He also told me that no one called him "when things were going well" and that he was very comfortable protecting people in high stake situations.
Fortunately my case was dismissed without any disciplinary action within a few weeks! Mr Murphy always made himself available to me by phone within a few hours if I had questions and his staff was very professional. The case was resolved so quickly that Mr Murphy even refunded some of the money from the retainer! I found him to be a very honest and tenacious guy that you want on your side when your life is on the line. I hope I don't have to retain him again but I would not hesitate to if needed, and/or recommend him to any friends or colleagues.

I discussed a licensing matter with Mr. Kevin Murphy and his paralegal, Ms. Kim Burch. They were both very thorough in obtaining the background information regarding my issue and even pointed out that I didn't necessarily have to retain them just yet. I was able to handle the issue myself but I will certainly use them if I ever have the unfortunate need for legal services in the future. They were the ultimate in professionalism!

Kathleen is an amazing advocate and legal mind. She was "hope" in a near hopeless situation - she represented me in a Licensing Board matter where the Board overwhelming gathered biased information from individual's with "an axe" to grind. She was able to logically show the biases of the other parties and effectively showed the Board my side.

Very grateful of that choice I made because they did a great job on helping me get my license. Everything was straight forward, questions were always answered. I would definitely recommend the Murphy Jones law team to anyone looking for an attorney who is experienced and knowledgeable about nursing field/licensure.

I was referred to Kevin Murphy by another lawyer and "Struck Gold." He provided an exceptionally helpful, free consultation and answered questions I did not even know I had. He is experienced in the most specific ways and is enthusiastic about his work. While I ultimately hope not to need his help, I wouldn't think to ask for anyone else's when it comes to my professional license.

Heather Melone was a heaven sent lawyer. If it wasn’t for her, my nursing lisence would be revoked. After many lawyers turning my case down due to timing, Heather agreed to take my case and was successful in getting my RN lisence reinstated. I am so grateful I retained her as my lawyer. She is not only very knowledgeable, she is also very personable and has a beautiful soul. If you are looking for a lawyer to protect your professional lisence, look no further and give Heather a call. This is an honest to god review. I am an actual client that without Heather I would not have my nursing career. Thank you Heather!

A few months ago I received a letter from the Nevada State Board of Nursing with substantial allegations. (I am a practicing Family Nurse Practitioner in Arizona, applying for FNP-C license in Nevada). I immediately called Murphy Jones APC, as I do not practice in Nevada, for help regarding the allegation, none-the-less, this practice went "above and beyond" to protect not only my nursing, temp NP license, but also my AZ RN and FNP license(s). Kathleen and Jean were on top of every move the Board threw against us! I highly recommend this firm for any malpractice issues you may face! Don’t try to go against the Board alone, seek the help of this firm to help you against any wrong allegations you may be facing. I can certainly say the day after the case was closed I am a FNP license holder in Nevada.

The office of Murphy Jones APC offered and provided me with expert, professional as well as compassionate, legal counsel and action. Their efforts on my behalf helped me to believe I did not have to surrender all hope, during an investigation against me. Uncontested or choosing to self-represent would have certainly produced a different outcome. I felt relief in knowing I had a very experienced and capable Registered Nurse (retired)/Attorney, Partner and Staff working on my behalf.
I highly recommend Murphy Jones APC, BEFORE, you try self-expunging the guilt by opening a dialogue with your State Board of Nursing. Securing a specialty attorney immediately, is, the prudent course to take. It is, after all, your future you must try to protect, along with all that implies.
I had a most-positive-outcome experience.
Thank You Murphy Jones APC

I want to express my deep gratitude to Kevin Murphy and his awesome assistant (Paralegal) Kim Burch for making the litigation with the State Board of Chiropractic Examiners so non-stressful and efficient. I had been investigated and charged with practicing Chiropractic without a license by the Board [in relation to chakra holistic treatments I provide to friends/family often while ingesting LSD/hallucinogenics]. This is after being away from my practice that I passed on to my daughter in 2015 when I went into a new phase of my life. I am now 70 yrs old which is hard to fathom, and I am essentially "retired." It was quite a shock to be presented with this level of stressful entanglement with the "Matrix"/Government. A friend of mine referred me to his Lawyer who referred me to Kevin Murphy. Kevin is known for his expertise in dealing with matters such as this with the State Board. He immediately put me at ease as he communicated through his presence and confidence that all would be resolved. Even when I was presented with a court date for a trial he conveyed a depth of confidence that all is well. He and his super attentive and efficient assistant Kim Burch gave me clear understanding of what steps that I needed to take to facilitate the process. The outcome was effortless Surrender of my License with no other complications, fines etc.. They always paid attention to any questions or concerns that I expressed in a very personal and caring way. They fully resolved my issues with the Matrix so that I am free to be me. I am forever grateful...!

I was referred to Kevin's practice by several other attorneys when consulting for legal representation. I can absolutely see why he has a great reputation with his peers. I was facing diversion accusations after failing a drug screen while on shift. The Board was notified and I was terrified. Kevin was very authentic with me and we agreed on a strategy that ended up with a settlement deal with the board that left me able to practice un-encumbered without restrictions on my ability to handle controlled substances at work. I'm now employed as a nurse at a new facility thanks to Kevin's practice and expertise! I highly recommend him and I would hire him to defend me again if I ever needed legal representation again.

I am a medical malpractice attorney for plaintiffs. I received a referral regarding a client whose case included issues pertaining to administrative law regulations. I have not dealt with any of those issues in years. In order to get some guidance, I called and left a message for Kevin Murphy of Murphy Jones, APC, who was listed in this year’s Super Lawyers for San Diego and whose primary practice is in administrative law. Kevin Murphy returned my call. Even though he was home sick, he took at least 20 minutes to answer my questions. He also educated me on other areas that would be helpful as it impacted my practice. Mr. Murphy was knowledgeable, personable and incredibly helpful. If a client came into my office needing guidance in any way relating to administrative law, I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Murphy.

I hired Mr. Murphy because I had been accused of diversion and fired by my employer. An investigator from the BON called me and I called Mr. Murphy as soon as I got off the phone with them. He explained how he bills by the hour and not by the case and how he felt confident that I could keep my license. I retained his counsel and he was on the case from early October 2018 until the end of January 2019. During this time I provided him with all of the information that I could (and he asked for very specific information for me to acquire) and as an end result I retained my license without any sanctions! It was recommended by the BON at the conclusion that I take very specific CEUs which I took immediately. Afterwards I received an email from Mr. Murphy with an itemized final bill and a notification of a REFUND of a portion of the monies that I paid to him. I am very grateful for his service and hope to never have need of them again (but I am keeping his number, however).
Undisclosed February 8, 2019
Hiring Kevin Murphy was truly the best decision I have ever made. After a few nightmare experiences with criminal defense attorneys, I was skeptical of all attorneys. I believed that all attorneys only have one goal; to line their own pockets, having no concern as to the outcome of those they were entrusted to defend. Kevin knows the ins-and-outs of how to protect your professional healthcare license.
Without any previous legal issues or criminal history, I ran into an extremely serious legal situation and was convinced to take a plea by a criminal defense attorney after being told that it would not affect my license. Because I took this horrible advice, I know that without Kevin's assistance when it was time to deal with the BRN, my situation could have negatively impacted or even caused me to lose my RN license.
I first contacted Kevin with little time to spare until my license expired and I was in a complete panic, to say the least. I contacted him on a Thursday afternoon and my license was expiring 3 days later on Sunday. I first spoke with his sweet and extremely knowledgable paralegal Kim who requested that I email any pertinent court documents right away for Kevin to review. Kim then scheduled a phone conference for me to speak with Kevin later that same day. As promised, he called at the arranged time having already read through the hundreds of pages that I had emailed earlier that day. He spent an hour on the phone with me as a free consultation. After asking me some important questions, I knew he was the one so he and Kim immediately dove head first into assisting me in protecting not only my license but my much loved career.
Not leaving them much time, I was amazed to receive everything that I needed to submit to the BRN with my renewal by the very next day, on Friday afternoon. I still cannot believe the speed that they worked as well as the exceptional quality. As instructed, I attached the documents that he so brilliantly created to my BRN renewal and my RN license was renewed without any issue!
Kevin is a legal prodigy and God forbid that I will ever need help again, I will never hire anyone else. Thank you Kevin and Kim for everything, will all my heart.

Kevin assisted my sister throughout the legal process of her case with the Board of Registered Nursing without too much demand on my sister. My sister with medical issues (brain cancer) was able to focus more on her treatment instead of stressing about legal proceedings. It requires sincere understanding and patience to work with my sister due to her cognition (due to her medical issue) and Kevin was the perfect fit. We can't thank Kevin enough for making my sister's legal case less stressful!

Kevin was thorough, helpful, and professional. His guidance and counsel directly helped me obtain an extremely positive outcome. Thank you Kevin!

Summary: Kevin was up front and honest in disclosing to me that he may not be able to guarantee better results from hiring him in my case. In our phone consult he gave me future recommendations and advice for me. Kevin is honest, aggressive, and respectful. I will be hiring him when i transfer my RN from Nevada to California.
I am a new grad RN applying in Nevada. A couple years ago, before even the thought of nursing school, i was convicted of a DUI. The Nevada Board of Nursing would not let me test for the NCLEX until I signed what i thought was a stiff, excessive, and harsh "monitoring" agreement (with employment restrictions, 3 weekly AA's, therapy sessions etc) based on my past conviction that was already done and over in the courts. I was receiving little to no explanations from the Nevada Board of Nursing for anything about the excessive stipulations in the agreement and felt like they had stamped me an addict and risk to the public. In the eyes of the board you are either %100 sober and drug free or you are stealing money from children to buy your next drink. There is no in between with them. I was beyond frustrated with the untimely communication, lack of concern, and distrust from the Board. I was blindsided by the fact that this was going to be a fight to get my license with no disciplinary attachment on my RN.
In our phone consult Kevin clearly explained the whole process to me and was honest with his expectations for my case. It was great to hear that he had specific experience with both the Nevada Board of Nursing and the California Board of Registered Nursing, and that he represented cases like me. He actually informed me that he couldn't guarantee a better agreement with the Nevada Board of Nursing even if i had hired him, but he would've tried to get me a much better deal. He respected the position I was in, being a broke jobless new graduate, and told me straight up. He even gave me some advice and strategies for the future in how to boost my character and image with the Boards. I will absolutely be hiring Kevin when I plan on transferring my RN license to California.

Upon receipt of an unsettling and threatening letter by the Board of Registered Nursing I consulted Kevin Murphy and Associates in November 2013. Initially I was referred to his mothers office in Las Vegas, NV. I retained Kevin's services for a period of over two years. He had been tenacious, patient, reassuring and was a champion at squelching an ever-present anxiety sparked by fear of an unknown outcome regarding my convoluted case. His advice empowered me to make more informed decisions regarding the Boards demands. I'll let you know, the Board of Nursing letter instructions were ambiguous, leaving me feeling doubtful, mentally paralyzed and practically feeble. In addition, they reassured me if I did not choose one of there disciplinary options (i.e. diversion) regarding my case, they would take a course of extremes. To make it more harrowing they gave a time bound restriction on my decision. Frightening!
I want to say "Thank You, Kevin," for doing what you do.
In my particular case, I made a decision in haste that I regret. Upon answering questions on my renewal license application I had an open court case that involved an arrest, with a pending, but unknown conviction. The question asks: "Have you been arrested since your last renewal?" I answered, "No."
Now, I am not an advocate of lying and I am certainly not making an EXCUSE. I am simply stating the REASON I reacted in a "fear of loss" state of mind. A situation I wish to NEVER be face to face with again. I personally think it is an unfair question by the Board. Perhaps a more fair question: "Have you been convicted...etc."
Kevin explained to me that this type of case doesn't happen all the time, however it can be rectified. What a relief to hear! Hearing Kevin's advice and listening to him evolve a plan instilled a calming certainty that allowed me focus on my God given talent as a nurse. Kevin has resolved my issue with 100% assurance. I could not have pleaded or prayed for a better outcome.
Kevin also honors Veterans of the Armed Forces and this is a deal breaker for me. Thank you again for setting my mind free."

"Kevin and his team are phenomenal. They were very professional, and understanding regarding my case with the NV BON. My old company, who is run by people that can't do the job themselves, tried to throw me under the bus. But Kevin's great representation ensured that my response is appropriate, which led to the BON closing my case w/o disciplinary actions!"

"This past June I was looking at a suspension of my clearance and teaching license due to my 2nd DUI. I was referred to Kevin by a family friend who spoke very highly of him and his firm. From the first call Kevin was very open and made me feel comfortable telling him my story. He was upfront about the legal costs and very honest and fair about what it was going to take financially to tackle the legal situation. I really appreciated his honesty as well as his knowledge in the field of education with regard to the law. I am from San Diego and was asked to appear before the Board of Teaching in Sacramento. Most lawyers would not take my case due to the distance and the short amount of time to prepare. Kevin willingly took on my case and was positive from the start. He flew all the way to Sacramento to represent me in front of the board of education. He was on time as with all his conference calls and I can not thank him enough for that. When I met him in Sacramento he had an entire binder prepared to give to the board and spoke so eloquently in front of the board. I would highly recommend Kevin Murphy to my own friends and family and cannot thank him and his staff enough!"

"I called Kevin for help with an issue we were having with the county and [state]. He did research by calling the state and asking questions that I had. I had previously called the state and got no where. He was up front and honest about me not needing his services at this time. I really appreciated that he was honest. I was not charged for the leg work he did. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends. If I have any issues in the future I know who to call."

"I am currently pending a misdemeanor conviction, upon discharge from the Armed Services. I researched out to Mr.Murphy inquiring how my charge will affect my ability to obtain my nursing license. Though I am not staying in the state of California, Mr. Murphy still gave me ample information and resources to use in my defense. He was very helpful and I would strongly recommend him to anyone seeking legal council in the state of California or Nevada."

"I have just resolved a case with the BRN with the help of Kevin Murphy. He was honest upfront and never sugar coated anything which I appreciated. He prepared me for best and worst case scenarios and I am so excited to say we go the very very best case scenario in the end! So very thankful!"
Completely Satisfied Client May 17, 2016
"Kevin Murphy is a fighter and unequivocally advocates for his clients. My application for nursing licensure was denied after graduating nursing school and I only made things worse and drawn out by appealing the Board of Nursing's decision on my own behalf. Once hiring Kevin, the Board responded favorable in my case (considering my past convictions) and I am finally licensed and looking forward to beginning my career. Thanks again Kevin!"
New CA RN May 17, 2016
"I am a nurse who was having trouble with the Board of Registered Nursing. My outlook was very grim and I was scared I might lose my license that I worked so hard for. I researched many lawyers but I went with Kevin. Kevin gives it to you straight, no messing around. He knows how to play the "game". He let's you know what needs to be done in order to increase your chances to win your case. His prices are more than reasonable and he'll work with you on payments. In conclusion, my case was dropped by the BRN and I owe it all to Kevin Murphy!"
James, RN May 17, 2016
"Kevin C. Murphy is an expert on licensing matters with the California Board of Nursing. I am very satisfied with his efforts on my behalf and satisfactory resolution of my case.

I would recommend his services."

"Mr. Kevin Murphy assisted me in a very difficult and protracted conflict involving my R.N. license in California. It was a difficult and emotional situation for me as I've been practicing in the field of critical care for 32+ years and the thought of losing my license or censure of my ability to work as an ICU nurse or a Flight nurse was a burden for me. I had a DUI and Kevin has been supporting me through the lengthy process of resolution with the Board of Registered Nursing, he has helped me stay calm when I've felt completely at a loss and emotionally spent. I've been impressed with the attention to detail Kevin has shown, he'll find answers to my question, if he doesn't immediately know and get back with me 'asap', even after regular business hours. His calm approach to seemingly horrific issues help me maintain hope that I'll move through this complicated mess in one piece. Anything having to do with the government seems to take forever to resolve, having an advocate who knows the resources necessary to approach the specific problem gives me peace of mind. I'd recommend Kevin Murphy without reserve. The first lawyer had 'years and years' of experience, but I was left out in the cold, my case was not handled in a timely and professional manner and I ended up having many more complications added to my case secondary to his lack of initiative in completing necessary steps. So, I'm pleased with the energy and enthusiastic way my case is being dealt with by Mr. Murphy, he may have fewer years of experience than my prior attorney, but he has done far more to help me."

"Mr. Murphy met with us in a timely manner and discussed our issue with care and concern. We found that if the case is not within his area, he took great effort to assure that he located someone that he believed would look out for our best interest, and apply the laws that protect all citizens. He is always available to communicate with us whenever he was called upon. No waiting for days for a response. He is highly honored by the Knights of Columbus, an organization that support the community in need and those in religious life."

Michelle, Licensing Client March 22, 2016
"I am a RN who has had trouble with the California State Board of Nursing. The BON wanted to pull my professional license for something that happened 17 years ago in another state. Kevin came on board and presented my case before a judge. The case was complicated but the final recommendation by the judge was for a complete dismissal of my case. Kevin Murphy did an excellent job and if your in the medical profession and need legal help, I recommend Kevin highly. He did a GREAT job!!"
