Brian Murray is the original founding attorney of The Law Office of Brian Murray PLLC, the predecessor organization to Murray Osorio PLLC. Brian is a tireless advocate for individuals in immigration and criminal proceedings. Since its inception just six years ago his firm has experienced a meteoric rise to become known as the home for some of the most relentless advocates for individuals with difficult immigration cases.

Brian has represented a range of individuals with a multitude of backgrounds, complications, and needs. He has represented former heads of state, prominent diplomats from a range of countries, multinational executives, and others with seemingly intractable immigration problems including denial of immigrant and non-immigrant visas, waivers, problems at the port of entry, customs issues including seizures, and removal defense.

Brian maintains a special personal focus on “crimmigration” – the immigration consequences of criminal convictions. He is looked to as an authority by criminal defense counsel and their clients in the DC area and across the country, to provide immigration counsel and immigration-safe dispositional options before criminal proceedings.

Brian also has successfully represented numerous clients applying for waivers and other applications for relief in removal proceedings in immigration courts across the country, as well as countless waiver applications, motions to reopen, and administrative appeals before USCIS.
