little history: Ward & Murphy
was formed by the merger of the practices of Jack Ward in Ithaca and Evan
Webster in Groton. Both of those practices served people in Tompkins
County for nearly twenty years. Over those twenty years, both Jack
and Evan built solid reputations for providing their clients with timely
solutions to their legal problems. Liam Murphy joined the practice in
1999 soon after moving back to New York after practicing law for over ten
years in New York City, Pittsburgh and Wilmington, Delaware.
