Murphy Orlando has played a lead role in the only successful cannabis regulatory appeal in New Jersey history, persuaded State and federal courts to reverse summary judgment in cases involving workplace discrimination and police authority, protected well-decided trial court rulings from appellate attack, and helped criminal defendants pursue a new trial or correct a sentencing error in federal and state criminal matters.
