Murphy Desmond Celebrates 90 Years

In April 1931, Murphy Desmond was founded on the principles of legal integrity, exceptional service and commitment to the community. Those values remain today as the firm celebrates 90 years of serving businesses, families, and individuals with their legal needs. 

As such, we take this time to honor our beloved founder, the late Robert Brady Lawrence Murphy, who passed away in 2001, at the age of 95. Mr. Murphy was not only a respected lawyer, but also a philanthropist, historian, and exceptional leader of the firm.  

Ginger Zimmerman, our President & Managing Shareholder, was interviewed in April 2021 on Talk Wisconsin to discuss interesting anecdotes about the firm's history, the character of Mr. Murphy, and current information about the firm. Ginger was fortunate to have worked with Mr. Murphy in the 1990s. Watch this five-minute video for more information.

Talk Wisconsin is a regular feature on TVW (cable channel 14 and 605 in the Madison, WI television market) and can be found on the WISC-TV news website.
