The Murphy Law Office, which had been an outgrowth of the former Murphy Firm, is getting $2.8 million from the federal government to help it build a nationwide immigration court and expand its business.
The $1.5 million is the largest single grant for a local law office in the history of the federal program, according to the office’s chief operating officer, Karen Murphy.
The federal grant will be used to hire and train immigration attorneys, and to fund legal aid, community outreach and other programs.
The office’s attorney, Brian Murphy, said that, for the most part, the office has done a good job of complying with federal requirements.
He added that the office had already hired about 200 lawyers to help expand its operations.
“We’ve already had two years to get the program started,” Murphy said.
Murphy said the office will also use the money to expand its office in San Francisco and hire more lawyers to work in New York.
The Murphy Firm is one of more than a dozen local law offices that have received grants from the U.S. Justice Department’s Office of Immigration Litigation since its creation in 2014.
It was founded by two law students who had previously worked in the Justice Department and its civil rights division.
The law firm was established in 2014 by the two women, who have since become co-founders.
Murphy Law has been one of the nation’s largest immigration lawyers for more than four decades.
It specializes in representing clients who are undocumented immigrants who have committed crimes or are victims of crimes and who have faced criminal penalties.
In 2016, Murphy Law won a federal judge’s approval for the hiring of attorneys from the Office of Victims of Crime to represent undocumented immigrants in immigration court cases.
Murphy is the former head of Murphy Law’s criminal division.
