Firm Philosophy

Our firm was founded upon the vision of an aggressive, multi-practice law office capable of providing top caliber legal representation in both civil and criminal areas of client legal needs. From our initial stages, and continuously through our growth and progression as an experienced and successful law firm, we have maintained our focus and commitment to provide personal, “hands-on” services by having direct contact with our clients. Only through hard work, dedicated commitment and experience in the trenches have we been able to acquire the results necessary to gain our clients’ confidence and respect. We will not be out-worked. Knowing how to treat people and how to be effectively received by your audience is a talent that is necessary for successful lawyers. Our lawyers have earned the respect of judges and juries. Our strategy is to obtain maximum results for our clients, whether it be acquittals or judgment recoveries, by developing creative, direct or alternative means of conflict resolution in either the criminal or civil arenas.  We are skilled and aggressive trial lawyers and as a result, accomplished negotiators.

Strength Through Experience

The partners at Murnane & O'Neill, who collectively have over 50 years of combined experience, as well as their associates, believe every client deserves their day in court, and routinely take cases to trial that other law firms would not. We are not a settlement or plea factory. Our seasoned trial attorneys look forward to taking your case before a judge or jury, using their skills to obtain the optimum verdict or acquittal.

Personal Touch

The founding partners, Hal Murnane and Peter O’Neill, form the backbone of the firm. They believe in giving clients personal service. You WILL meet with a lawyer for your case. Our other lawyers have been mentored by Mr. Murnane and Mr. O’Neill, and have been taught to be compassionate to the needs of our clients, and to instill confidence by their tenacious pursuit of successful outcomes and resolutions which result from untiring preparedness.  We have the sensitivity to appreciate the seriousness and emotional impact of being charged with a crime or dealing with the lifestyle alteration resulting from a devastating or catastrophic personal injury.  Sometimes, achieving a victory may not be enough, and we strive to assure that our clients fully understand the outcome.


Hal Murnane & Peter O'Neill are both local attorneys who have resided, raised families and been active in Anne Arundel County for many years.

Involved in the Community

The attorneys at Murnane & O'Neill are often involved in community events and activities, as well as sponsor events, in an effort to give back to the community that they love.
