    Attorney Profile

    Attorney George E. Murphy is a founding member of the highly respected Sacramento law firm of Murphy, Campbell, Alliston & Quinn, PLC. With two office locations – one in Sacramento and one in Irvine – he proudly represents the interests of residents, businesses, professionals and government entities throughout California in civil appellate matters, with a particular focus on insurance coverage consultation and litigation.
    Mr. Murphy began his legal career in 1980 after earning his law degree from Golden Gate University School of Law and his admission to The State Bar of California. In addition to his approval to practice in all of California's courtrooms, he has been approved to practice in the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern, Central and Northern Districts of California; the U.S. Appeals Court for the 9th Circuit; and the U.S. Supreme Court.
    Over the last 35 years, Mr. Murphy has earned a reputation as a leading attorney in his practice area. He has represented a number of high-profile clients – many of them public entities such as California State University, the city of Fresno and Sacramento County – in a wide range of appellate matters. In fact, his experience and knowledge of appellate law are so extensive that the 3rd District Court of Appeal confirmed him to serve on its mediation panel.
    Thanks to attorney Murphy's excellent reputation and long record of success, he has earned a number of honors and awards. He holds a "Superb" rating from Avvo, and he is peer-rated as AV-Preeminent* according to Martindale-Hubbell. He is also a highly valued member of the legal community, as he is a member of a number of organizations, including the American Bar Association's Council of Appellate Lawyers and the Association of Defense Counsel of Northern California and Nevada.
