  • Ryan is a Very Good Attorney

    Ryan Murphy is very good attorney. He is willing to go above and beyond what a normal DUI defense attorney would do for their clients. Ryan appeared on my behalf to try to negotiate a reckless driving plea bargain, and I even appeared multiple times with him. We met with three different Prosecutors and it looked as though we were going to have to go to trial. Ryan went back in to the Judge’s chambers with one of the Prosecutors and was able to negotiate a reckless driving plea bargain. As high as my BAC was this was really the best outcome I could have hoped for. Ryan Really worked his magic in the Judge’s chambers and I guarantee no other DUI defense attorney would be willing to put in the time and effort that Ryan Murphy did for me. In addition to this huge win of negotiating a reckless driving plea bargain, I now have the opportunity to win the DMV hearing and not lose my license at all, which means I do not have to obtain an SR-22 and have huge car insurance premium increase. We are currently awaiting this DMV trial but I am confident in my chances to win as Ryan has all the angles covered. Take my advice, if you have a DUI charge call Ryan Murphy right away. The longer you wait to obtain competent defense counsel, the greater you are putting yourself at risk.
  • I Cannot Recommend Ryan Highly Enough

    I had the misfortune of being pulled over in Carmel for a DUI. I had a small quantity of marijuana on me in addition to a knife that I had brought along on a trip to the beach for carving sticks to make smores.To make matters worse, I had a fourteen-year old in the car, so I was also looking at a felony charge for child endangerment.

    The DA loaded up the charges: DUI, possession of marijuana, weapons possession, child endangerment, refusal to submit to a breathalyzer...I was, needless to say, worried that I would be dealt with harshly.

    When all was said and done, Ryan had everything reduced to a simple DUI. It was quite a piece of work, and he accomplished it primarily through informal negotiations with the DA. Ryan knows the law, and as importantly he knows how to negotiate with the DA's in Monterey County. Had we gone to trial, I would likely have had my ass handed to me, but Ryan was able to spare me that ordeal.

    I cannot recommend Ryan highly enough for any of your criminal defense needs. He is communicative, knowledgeable, timely in getting back to you, and a generally nice guy. I will be recommending him to any friends I have that end up in need of help.
  • Courteous, On Time, Responsive, and Has Inspirational Ways of Looking at Things

    I am currently working with this Attorney. And in my experience so far he has been courteous, on time, responsive, and has had some inspirational ways of looking at things when I maybe wasn't so hopeful. I am VERY ill, on the Liver transplant list, and dealing with overwhelming health issues, my case was truly one of great misunderstanding between myself and officers, and he's given me the opportunity to explain,as there's nothing worse than being misread, or misrepresented. It's been wonderful to relax and sort of leave things to him. When my case is settled, I will be certain and fill you in on the outcome, which I am SURE will be exactly as we've discussed.
