G Edward Murphy

Our Job is to be Central Illinois' Best

Divorce and Custody Law Firm Everyday


Hello.  My name is Attorney G. Edward Murphy and I am the President and CEO of Murphy & Dunn, P.C.  We strive to be Peoria, Bloomington and Central Illinois' Best Divorce & Custody Attorneys. We are the largest and fastest growing family law firm in Central Illinois and now have two offices located in Peoria, Illinois at the Twin Towers Plaza at 456 Fulton Street, Suite 425, Peoria, Illinois 61602 and in Bloomington/Normal, Illinois located at 328 Susan Drive, Suite 200, Normal Illinois 61761. These two offices are designed to serve our clients throughout the entire State of Illinois and specifically in Central Illinois and to make it convenient for you to meet with us.


Murphy & Dunn, P.C. is the largest law firm in Central Illinois that is dedicated exclusively to family law matters. We now have seven attorneys, nine paralegals and two office locations to serve your custody, divorce and family law needs.  There is no better law firm throughout Central Illinois to handle all of your custody, divorce, and family law legal needs. Our job is to take care of you as our client. We don't take that responsibility lightly. Everything we do puts you and your children first. We only get one chance to do it right and our goal is to make that happen every time, on every case.


Our practice encompasses all aspects of custody and divorce, including dissolution of marriage and divorce, custody (now called allocation of parental responsibilities - parenting time and decision-making), marital property division, legal separation, civil unions, father's rights, mediation, gay and lesbian custody and divorce, farm divorces, child support, visitation, maintenance and alimony, hidden assets and income cases, relocation and removal, college expenses, high income and high asset divorce cases, adoption, paternity, rights of third persons, grandparent's rights, prenuptial agreements, guardianships, domestic abuse and Orders of Protection, parental abduction, post decree matters and all family law related matters. We also handle family law appeals.  We have also opened up the Nicholas J. Murphy Foundation Pro Bono Clinic to help those members of the Armed Forces that need help in family law matters to honor Nicholas J. Murphy, who was killed on November 19, 2016 while serving in the United States Navy.


Everything we do is designed to take care of you as a person first. Our job is really about people. Anyone can type up a bunch of papers or do a bunch of research. No other firm takes care of their clients first like we do. We consider it our number one job to make sure are happy with the result we receive. Everything we do is geared toward getting the case done right and you being involved with us every step of the way. In addition, what we do is designed to honor the sacrifice and commitment Nick Murphy made in joining the United States Navy and representing our country, and not just through the Nicholas J. Murphy Foundation Pro Bono Clinic, but on each and every case. In our office, people come first, not paperwork. Watch Nick's video and you will see the type of person he was. Each one of us at Murphy & Dunn, P.C. strives to be the same. Here is Nick's story: American Red Cross Heartland Hero 2017
