Sean Murphy

Estate Planning Attorney

While in law school, Sean worked for a U.S. District Court Judge in the Northern District of New York. Sean also served as an editor on Duke Law’s Environmental Law and Policy Journal and as a Student Attorney at Duke’s Environmental Law and Policy Clinic.

Upon being admitted to practice law in North Carolina, Sean began a one-year Fellowship at Duke University’s Office of Counsel, where he worked on a wide-range of legal issues involving the University and the Healthcare System. Sean’s responsibilities included contracts, regulations, administrative hearings, government relations, privacy policies, ethics investigations, and trademark disputes. Sean joined Walker Lambe, PLLC upon completion of his Fellowship and currently practices in our Estate Planning and Elder Law groups.

Sean likes to spend his free time with his wife, Allie, and their golden retriever mix, Hazel. Sean has been to all 50 states in the U.S., and while doing so he also hiked, camped, skied, and biked his way through over half of the national parks.
