Law Firm Overview

At Plachta, Murphy & Associates it is our mission to promote our clients’ business and personal security through responsive and proactive legal expertise. We are a full-service law firm with over 50 years of combined legal expertise in all areas of the law. Our offices are located in Grand Rapids with an additional office in Holland. We don’t strive to be the biggest law firm in West Michigan, but rather to be a law firm that provides one-on-one personalized service of the highest quality for our business and personal clients.

In addition to the traditional areas of business and personal law, in response to client needs we have developed unique specialty client practice groups in Elder Care Law, Divorce and Family Law, Government Benefits (including Social Security, Disability, VA, and Medicaid) and Back Tax Resolution. Because times are tough in Michigan, many of our services are billed on a flat fee basis or include an initial free office conference.
