Civil Rights Lawyers in Baltimore
Legacy of Fighting for Diversity & Justice
Every person deserves to be treated with respect, dignity, and care. In the U.S., people have certain civil rights that must be honored. Unfortunately, many parties often violate these rights in the pursuit of their own interests. Whether due to racism, pride, anger, or any type of discrimination, a violation of these rights cannot go overlooked.
Turn to Murphy, Falcon & Murphy for Qualified Advocacy
Murphy, Falcon & Murphy has a rich history in the field of civil rights. The legacy upon which our firm was founded started when a prejudiced dean tried to bribe Judge William H. Murphy, Sr. to attend a different law school in order to maintain segregation at the University of Maryland School of Law - Judge Murphy, Sr., of course, responded by becoming the third African American to be admitted to the university.
The Murphy family has spent the last 70 years fighting injustice in Baltimore and throughout Maryland. Both Judge Billy Murphy, Jr. and Hassan Murphy now uphold the long-standing Murphy tradition of socially-responsible legal practice, by representing the oppressed and disenfranchised.

We sued the officer for his use of excessive force and infliction of emotional distress and recovered a $44 million verdict.
