Welcome to Bhatt Murphy Solicitors
Bhatt Murphy is a team of lawyers who work together to make a contribution to the protection of civil liberties.
We offer specialist help to members of the public who seek accountability from the state and its officers. Our focus is upon the treatment of individuals by the criminal justice system (including the police, the prison service and the prosecuting agencies) as well as those within immigration detention.
We are motivated by the needs of our clients and use the law as a tool to assist in the realisation of their objectives. We aim to deliver a high quality legal service irrespective of our client’s ability to pay. We seek to contribute to the progressive development of the law and to the protection of civil liberties outside the courts.
We rely upon a collaborative style to ensure that our clients benefit from the commitment of their own individual lawyer as well as the creativity and innovation of the entire team.
