Meet Jamie Murphy

Jamie Murphy:
Deep Roots in Our Community

Jamie Murphy learned the meaning of family, hard work and responsibility at an early age. His father, James Sr., immigrated from County Kerry, Ireland and met Jamie’s mother Maureen. They were married and moved to Weymouth in the 1960’s where Jamie and his sister Heather were born.

 In 1975, they opened a family automobile business, Murphy Brothers, which still operates in North Weymouth today. His parents taught Jamie by example and have been active members of neighborhood organizations and civic clubs in Weymouth for years.

After graduating from Merrimack College, Jamie earned his Law Degree from Suffolk University Law School. He served as an Attorney and Judicial Clerk at the Massachusetts Appeals Court assigned to statewide civil and criminal appeals.  He then served as an Assistant District Attorney and was Admitted to Practice Law before the United States Supreme Court.

A lifelong resident of Weymouth, Jamie and his wife Mary Ann, a registered nurse, are raising their two children Maeve (6 years old) and Liam (2 years old) a mile from Jamie’s childhood home.
