Judge Murphy is the best criminal judge In Miami-Dade County. He is extremely fair and knows the law.

I've been doing this since 1985, have done this work as a prosecutor, attorney in private practise and as an Assistant Public Defender, and I know whereof I speak.

Best criminal judge in Miami-Dade County. Fair, knows the law, not afraid to make unpopular decisions (but decisions that are nonetheless right). Does not buy into the political game that plagues the Miami-Dade judiciary. Above all things, he is polite and respectful to all who appear before him. He has ruled in my favor, he has ruled against me, but he has always treated me well. Being polite and professional to attorneys goes a long way, judges. Take a cue from Dennis Murphy.

He let Donte Stallworth slide. 30 days in jail for killing a pedestrian? He lied to the police and the police report indicates Stallworth said "he hit the man lying in the road," yet had time to flash his lights before hitting him. Donte is a liar and a scoundrel with big bucks.

Never met a plaintiff that he liked, horrendous judicial temperament, poor grasp of legal issues.
