Our Philosophy & Practice Areas
Founding members D. Elizabeth Walker and John J. Murphy have spent their entire careers litigating cases in Maryland and Washington, D.C.

As litigation counsel, our philosophy is to prepare cases for trial from day one, assuring that our clients are in the strongest possible posture for trial should creative attempts at resolution prove unsuccessful.

Whether it is defending you individually, your business, or your career, at Walker, Murphy & Nelson, LLP we focus on each client's individual needs to assure that they are addressed and the client receives the quality legal representation that they deserve.
