WE ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Today at 4 pm, the 84th military client we have helped through the Nicholas J. Murphy Military Legal Clinic, started his visitation and parenting time with his two children after being denied his time for several weeks because his wife filed what I consider to be a bogus order of protection against him to gain an advantage in a custody case. Tomorrow that Order of Protection will be dismissed because we chose to take his case last week to help out a veteran

2018 Military Christmas Grants

2018 Military Christmas Grants

The 2018 Military Christmas Grants are here for this Christmas. All military families are encouraged to apply. Just like last year, we will be accepting donations and 100% of all money raised will be given out directly as a Christmas Grant to a military family in need. Once again, anyone who donates $500 or more will have a grant directly named in their honor and be given to one military family in need for extra money at Christmas. Last year we raised $10,000 and gave out twenty $500.00 Military Christmas Grants.

2018 Nick Murphy Achievement Scholarships

One of the major goals at Nick's Foundation is to provide educational scholarships and financial support to high school and college student-athletes to advance their college education. As part of that financial support, in June 2017 and in June 2018, the Nicholas J. Murphy Foundation gave out a total of ten $2,500.00 scholarships (for a total disbursement of $25,000.00) to deserving student-athletes. Please join us in congratulating this year’s Nick Murphy Achievement Scholarship Recipients Zach Stirnaman, Sage Bessert, Jack Frank, Clara Fitzpatrick, and Matthew Pichaske!

A Huge Thank You

A Huge Thank You

We raised over $84,000.00 in net proceeds from the 2018 Fairways for the Armed Forces golf outing. Those funds will be used to fund the Nicholas J. Murphy Pro Bono Clinic providing free and reduced rate family law legal services for veterans and members of the Armed Forces, and for the educational scholarships, military grants, and charitable donations made to OSF and for kids with cancer at the Heller Center for Kids with Cancer at OSF. Thank you all, so much, for all of your support and generosity. Nick’s legacy will continue to make the world a better place for so many people in the years and decades to come.

We Are Here to Help

We Are Here to Help

It is unbelievable to me how much we can do and how we are doing it.

We are going to exponentially expand what help we can give over the next year. Once we get everything worked out properly from a paperwork standpoint and from an ability to properly apply for grants, we will be hiring full time attorneys and staff for Nick’s Foundation and pro bono clinic and will be taking it statewide. No one else can offer free or reduced rate family law legal services to veterans and active duty military like we can. That is our future at the Foundation.

So when I say we can save lives, I mean it.
