Where


In her first assignment with the city of Chicago, Murphy led an unprecedented prosecution of multi-building owner slum lords. While in service of the city, she also developed policies and protocols and was instrumental in amending the Municipal Code of Chicago mandating an initial court call before holding mortgages accountable for code violations at vacant or abandoned properties. She also prosecuted complaints for the Fire Prevention Bureau and the Department of Health, besides representing the Department of Buildings. She is also well conversant with administrative appeals and procedures for initiating criminal complaints for failure to obey an administrative order.

Currently, Murphy focuses her practice on distressed property issues, municipal code violations and compliance, risk mitigation and dispute resolution, civil and commercial litigation, and administrative law and appeals.

Erin Murphy earned her J.D. in 2002 from The John Marshall Law School, where she served as the Executive Justice on the Moot Court Board.  She received a  B.A. from Mundelein College of Loyola University in Business Administration and Management and achieved paralegal certification from Roosevelt University.
