Julianne E. Murray
Before practicing law, Julianne Murray worked for 20 years in a law firm environment, equally split between technical paralegal work and law firm management. Julie continued to work as a law firm Administrator while attending law school until her final year of law school where she served as a judicial extern to Justice Henry DuPont Ridgely of the Delaware Supreme Court.
Admitted to practice law in Delaware in 2011, Julie opened Murray Law LLC in early 2012 because she had a vision of a law practice that was based on constitutional principles and marked by personal service and a common sense approach. She introduced herself and her practice by doing a daily call-in on a local radio show. For eighteen months, she used the call-in time as an educational segment that focused on various aspects of the law and conducted many “schools” on topics such as the U.S. Constitution, the Delaware Courts, real estate, landlord/tenant law, traffic offenses and estate planning. In January 2015, she and Ron Phillips formed MurrayPhillips P.A. The partnership has turned out to be beneficial for clients because Julie and Ron really like working together and often collaborate on criminal defense cases because each brings different strengths to a particular case.
Julie’s current practice is comprised of approximately 60% criminal defense, 15% estate planning and estate administration, 15% real estate and 10% municipal. Julie’s down to earth approach to the practice of law is appreciated by her clients and she prides herself on being candid, approachable and easy to work with. She takes the responsibility of being an attorney very seriously and zealously represents her client’s constitutional rights. Julie has argued before the Delaware Supreme Court en banc twice in four years and loves the challenge of appellate practice.
Julie and her husband Patrick moved to Delaware in 2003 from Anne Arundel County, Maryland. They are both pet lovers and avid baseball fans.
