What Our Clients
Say About Us

““James [Murtha] is very responsive and informative. Our case was resolved promptly. If we decide to rent again, we will definitely consult James … and have him write up the lease agreement.””

Michele C.Suffolk Landlord

““They were very professional from their email and phone correspondence, to their web presence. I provided a lot of information to them, and they surprisingly took in every single fact and used it for my defense. I was served with a 2 page petition, and their response with counterclaims were 9 pages long. They have serious in-depth knowledge of Landord/Tenant issues. The case against me was dismissed within a minute of appearing before the Judge. I could not have asked anymore than that.

Finding a Law Firm who is qualified and has you in their best interest is difficult. Based on my experience with the Murtha Law Firm, I would certainly use them again and ask anyone considering them to give them a call.””

Adam B.Suffolk County Tenant

““Service of papers and process was efficient. James Murtha was present the day of the court hearing and provided very good services. He listened carefully to concerns and addressed these in a manner that added value to the process.””
