Here at Maya Murphy, P.C. we strive to provide large firm service, experience and ability, but with small firm communication, attention and accountability. Our attorneys will not accept a matter unless they are certain that we, as a firm, can service it efficiently and effectively. Every client is important at Maya Murphy, P.C. and is treated accordingly. This means zealous representation, consistent communication, and fair billing.

When we meet potential clients for the first time, potential conflicts of interest are promptly disclosed and frankly discussed by our attorneys. Matters are staffed at levels consistent with our goals of quality and economy. We do not assign two lawyers to do the job of one and we do not generate unnecessary paperwork. A partner is assigned to supervise each client’s file and is available to confer with that client at any time regarding its handling. Our partners each supervise a set of attorneys and cases to ensure the best outcome for every client.

Most of our engagements are preceded by an attorney conference at which the client’s needs are carefully identified. Realistic goals and fees for our representation are discussed and determined. The nature of our undertaking is set forth in a retainer agreement which contains an explanation of your lawyers billing rates and charges. The partner assigned to the file will ensure that the client’s matter is promptly handled, appropriately staffed and fairly billed. If you ever have a question or a concern about your case or billing procedures, our partners and attorneys are always on call.

Our attorneys make every effort to keep our clients informed as to the status of their case and promptly return phone calls and emails. Clients are encouraged to maintain close contact with their attorney through candid and constructive interchange of ideas and information. We also believe that intelligent use of technology allows us to provide better service and can significantly reduce our client’s legal expenses. Not only does efficient use of technology lower our client’s bills, but it allows our attorneys to be available in an instant.
