Rachel Murphy

Rachel Murphy - Solicitor and Higher Rights Advocate

Rachel has been involved in Criminal law for over 30 years and recently joined Morgan Brown from a well-established Manchester Law Firm topping the Legal 500. She is a Chartered Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives, qualifying in 2004, and is a member of the Police Station Accreditation Scheme regularly attending police stations to represent those arrested for a wide range of offences.

Rachel is part of the Crown Court Team preparing a wide range of cases from simple theft to murder and is also experienced in preparing cases relating to Proceeds of Crime. She has developed a particular specialism in sexual offence cases. She is well respected and recommended within the Criminal Bar for her approach to case preparation and handling of cases. She has a fearless tenacity to get things done, leaving no stone unturned.

Rachel has developed a particular interest and expertise in disclosure laws and has been involved in several cases which have collapsed and led to recordings of not guilty against her clients, particularly those involving digital evidence from mobile phones, computers and social media. This followed her persistent and early requests for disclosure of unused material from the prosecution which either supported the defence, contradicted the alleged victim, or undermined the prosecution case generally. Born and raised in Salford, she is friendly, down to earth and approachable.
