Client Comments

"Christopher Murtaugh is the best real estate attorney ever employed by my firm. He has tremendous breadth of knowledge, wealth of practical experience and "hands on" participation in the documents. He has the unique ability to identify problems in a transaction and then help craft a solution."

"Working with Chris is a pleasure. Chris delivers unparalleled response time, works with all parties to come to equitable solutions, and balances the practical with reality. His expertise, coupled with his great attitude, is a rare combination that provides a very powerful business partner in your corner."


"My professional relationship with Chris Murtaugh spans nearly three decades and he has been instrumental in the successful growth and management of Ashley Capital. He brings a wealth of experience and intelligence to every transaction. Most important, however, is his positive, problem solving attitude. Nearly every transaction encounters conflicts between the parties. Chris has a unique ability to understand those conflicts, propose solutions, and ultimately counsel in the selection of a course of action that helps "get the deal done." He is the best lawyer we have used and I would recommend him to others without hesitation. "
