Our Philosophy

We think President John Adams said it best when, in a letter to a friend, he wrote: 

“Now, to what higher object, to what greater character, can any mortal aspire than to be possessed of all this knowledge, well digested and ready at command, to assist the feeble and friendless, to discountenance the haughty and lawless, to procure redress for wrongs, the advancement of right, to assert and maintain liberty and virtue, to discourage and abolish tyranny and vice.”

Michael Hepworth and John Murray

Our Commitment

We are committed to providing our clients with exceptional legal services at affordable rates. There are many different lawyers in this world, and your choices seem endless.  But one thing is clear, in today’s market, lawyers should earn your business. They should demand your absolute satisfaction. They should keep you updated on a regular basis. They should listen patiently to you when you just need someone to shoulder your burdens. And, on top of all this, a lawyer should show you respect, loyalty, and competence while keeping your legal matter held in strict confidence. Our attorneys and staff agree with this philosophy, and we each strive to provide this level of service to each and every one of our clients.

I want to tell all of you thank you from the bottom of my heart. Even though I have nothing I have hope and you all to thank for that. Everyday that I have broke down in tears I’ve continued to pray. That’s all I can do. Thank you again.  ~ Ann P.

Jennifer Zeleny is the most AMAZING!! Attorney I have ever heard of,  I am so grateful  to have found her when I did, She is very wise and knowledgeable with knowing the law, she was able to bring my daughter home  from a bad situation within months, when I had been trying for years. I am so amazed by her work that I have referred her  to all of my friends and family members who need an amazing attorney  and anytime I hear of someone needing any legal help because she is and will always be  #1 in my eyes.  Thank You Jennifer Zeleny  again I am ETERNALLY  gratefull.  Sincerely, Alisha  Jacques

As a court approved mediator, the first time that I met Jennifer Zeleny, I was impressed! She was smart, articulate, gave her client very good legal advice, and knew what she was talking about. She made sure that her client was aware of their legal rights but also balanced an appropriate risk analysis. She explained to her client what it was going to cost not only financially, emotionally, physically, mentally, and socially to proceed with the issues in the case. She made sure that her client was well informed with accurate information and then let her client make their own decision and then supported her client’s decision. She was genuine with her client and with me as the mediator. She is confident with her skills without being egotistical and works well with her clients, with me as the mediator, as well as the other attorneys with whom I have seen her interact. I would personally hire Jennifer if I were to need an attorney in the future!

I would highly recommend Jennifer.  I feel that she has listened to my every concern and is very professional.  She is honest and kind and has been a pleasure to work with,

Jennifer, I cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work and dedication to my case.  This has been a very long, emotional,  and stressful time for me, and when you took over my case the weight had been lifted. 


Jennifer has been wonderful to work with and has been extremely flexible. During the most intense parts of my case she was always available, even late at night.

She was incredibly knowledgeable and offered options that I didn’t realize were available to me as well as being my voice of reason, knowing when to stand to firm and when to compromise. I look forward to working with Jennifer again, should the need arise.

My attorney, Jennifer Zeleny, helped me when the courts would or could not.  My 15 year old daughter did not want to live with her dad and was excited to move with me to a new state, when I was offered a promotion.  Even though I have always supported a healthy relationship for her with her dad, he was starting to abuse her emotionally, as he had done me, and his first wife even before me.  Ms. Zeleny helped to take the stress out of a very serious situation and she guided us through the legal process to ensure a good outcome for me and my daughter.


Hepworth, Murray & Associates are an extremely professional law firm that has each clients best interest at heart. The entire staff is really great to work with and I highly recommend this firm.

I was so glad to find a law firm that not only had the technical ability to represent me, but also the determination to fight for my rights. Even though my case was quite technical, they had the patience to help me with every step of the difficult process. I was so pleased with my experience, that I have enthusiastically recommended this law firm to MANY of my friends and relatives. I honestly don’t believe that there is a tougher bulldog, with a kinder disposition to handle any legal situation.

I have known Michael for many years. He is responsive, creative, and smart. In addition, you can rely on his integrity. I heartily endorse him!

Carl Barton, Esq.

I have worked on opposite sides of John on several family law and divorce matters. John has a great reputation among his peers for being an aggressive advocate for his clients while still being professional and reasonable in his approach. Tough, fair, and honest, he is one of the good ones.

Christopher Salcido, Esq.

Most recently Michael helped me on a contract dispute with a major real estate developer and because of his expertise and diligence we prevailed and avoided what might have been a very protracted and expensive legal ordeal. I recommend Michael to anyone needing help in law or Real Estate.

Mr. Hepworth is an excellent attorney and I would recommend him to anyone that is facing legal problems. He is very knowledgeable and I would trust him with any of my future legal proceedings. He was always responsive when I had any concerns and legal questions and I am very happy with the way he handled the legal matter.


If you need an attorney, and want an attorney that cares about your case and will fight for your case like it was his own, this is your guy. Take the free consultation and you will see for yourself. I was charged with a DUI and driving on suspension. Both were dropped in exchange for a class c misdemeanor wreck less driving. They worked with me on payments and saved me thousands in the end. I consulted several attorneys and couldn’t have been happier with my choice and results.
