Nikki Murphy

Attorney at Law

Bar Admission


A native of Massachusetts, Mrs. Murphy earned her Bachelor of Arts in just three years at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where she designed her own Music Business major through the University’s Bachelor’s Degree with Individual Concentration program. Mrs. Murphy went on to earn her Juris Doctor from Belmont University College of Law in Nashville, Tennessee while also completing the Entertainment and Music Business Law Certificate program offered by the University. During her time at Belmont, Mrs. Murphy was a member of both the Entertainment Law Society and the Belmont University College of Law American Inn of Court. Concurrent to her academic responsibilities, Mrs. Murphy devoted much of her spare time to volunteering with Nashville Metro Animal Care and Control.

Mrs. Murphy’s interest in the law began long before her official enrollment in law school, namely in her role assisting a NIOSH certified “B”-reader radiologist expert witness with trial preparations for pending asbestos litigation lawsuits. In that capacity, she evaluated and compiled summary reports of various medical, radiographic, and legal materials.

During her time in law school, Mrs. Murphy interned with a professional sports league, where she assisted with the editing of player contracts, franchising and licensing agreements, as well as league policies and procedures. In addition, she held an internship position with a publishing company, in which capacity she worked to resolve copyright clearance issues. 

After passing the Massachusetts Bar Exam, Mrs. Murphy has specialized in anti-money laundering, counterterrorist financing, and financial crime investigations while employed by a major banking institution. In this role, she interacts with and provides pertinent information to representatives of various law enforcement entities, including IRS-CI, the United States Secret Service, Homeland Security, and the FBI. In the course of her employment, Mrs. Murphy attained the designation of Certified Anti Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS). In a separate role for a company specializing in personal injury and maritime claims, Mrs. Murphy has assisted with preparing clients for trial by analyzing and outlining an abundance of medical and legal materials. Throughout this span of time, Mrs. Murphy has also volunteered with the New England Innocence Project, wherein her duties have included preparing summaries of briefs and court decisions for publication in web-based promotional materials.

By virtue of her experience in the aforementioned positions, Mrs. Murphy has accumulated a wealth of expertise in the areas of financial malfeasance, personal injury law, maritime law, intellectual property law, entertainment law, and contract negotiations. A former employer of hers has attested to her impressive abilities and unwavering diligence by stating that “Mrs. Murphy is a highly intelligent, detailed-oriented, extremely organized and hard-working individual who takes her job very seriously.”

In her free time, Mrs. Murphy enjoys hiking alongside her husband, John, as well as her two dogs, Hemingway and Tennessee. She endeavors to travel as widely and as often as her schedule permits, and yet is equally content to savor a quiet day at home in the company of a strong cup of coffee and a good book.

Mrs. Murphy is licensed to practice in the state courts of Massachusetts.
