About Florence J. Murray

I’ve known I wanted to be a lawyer since I was a young girl, listening to my father talk about cases and trials at the dinner table. Fairness has always been my driving force—knowing that no one ever deserves or wants to be in a situation where they need an attorney. I believe that one of the greatest joys in life is interacting with and helping other people, and it’s this knowledge that I take with me to my practice every day. We want our clients to know that we are in this battle together.

"You do what you think is right and let the law catch up.” – Thurgood Marshall

Inspiration in my life:

My father; since I was a young girl, I would hear him talk about cases and trials at the dinner table. It is what inspired me to be a lawyer.

When I’m not helping clients:

You can find me outdoors! I love spending time with my family being active and in the fresh air whenever possible.

My advice for young professionals:

Find time to do things that are only for you and stay physically active.

I like giving back because:

It’s the right thing to do. Simple as that.

My greatest accomplishments:

The two most majestic experiences of my life are skydiving and peering down a ski slope in the Swiss Alps.
