In 1994, working closely with the U.S. Department of State and the Jordanian government, he secured the conviction of Mohammed Abequa, a Morris County resident who murdered his wife, kidnapped his children, and fled to his native Jordan to escape justice.

Mr. Murphy has served as President of the New Jersey Prosecutors Association, and has chaired the Association’s Legislative Committee. He is the past Chairman of the Garden State Preservation Trust, and was both the Chairman and a member of the Board of Trustees of the Public Policy Center of New Jersey.

A graduate of Georgetown University and Seton Hall University School of Law with nearly forty years of practice, Mr. Murphy has served as a municipal attorney, municipal prosecutor, county prosecutor and public defender. In private practice, he specialized in the areas of land use, corporate litigation, products liability and white collar defense.
