Donna MCL Murphy


I am a solo practitioner focusing on ensuring you understand your legal issue and your options. Sometimes that means reaching solid agreements. Sometimes that means litigation. I strive to find the right solution for your unique problem and your life priorities.

Prior to launching my own practice, I served for two years as a Courtroom Clerk in the Arlington County Circuit Court Clerk's Office. In that position, through my daily exposure to a variety of court proceedings, I learned the value and importance of practical legal solutions suited to the client's needs. Therefore, my practice is focused on being a trusted guide through the often unfamiliar terrain of the legal process.
