The Honorable Matthew J. Murphy, III

Biography

The Hon. Matthew J. Murphy, III is a judge for the Niagara County Court in the Eighth Judicial District of New York. He was initially elected to the bench in 2008 and re-elected in 2017.

Murphy earned a B.A. from St. John Fisher College in 1974. Then, in 1977, he completed a J.D. at Albany Law School.

After graduating from law school, Murphy entered into private practice at Harris and Southard in 1977. He practiced there for two years, eventually leaving to become an assistant U.S. Attorney with the United States Department of Justice in the Western District of New York. During his seven-year tenure there, he rose through the ranks, eventually becoming Chief Attorney for the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force in 1983.

Murphy returned to private practice in 1987. He worked in that capacity until 1992, when he was elected to serve as District Attorney for the Niagara County Office of the District Attorney. During his tenure in that role, he developed a domestic violence program that became a model for the rest of New York. Moreover, at the time of his election to the Niagara County Court, he held the distinction of being the longest-serving District Attorney in the history of Niagara County.

Murphy has also taught as an instructor of criminal and civil trial techniques at the Attorney General’s Advocacy Institute in Washington, D.C.

His memberships have included the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Old Fort Niagara, Eastern Niagara United Way, and the Knights of Columbus. He was also a founding member of the Niagara County Coalition on RACE (Racial Acceptance and Cultural Equality).

Murphy resided in Lockport at the time of his election to the bench. He has lived there with his wife, who has worked as a school social worker.

He is registered as a Democrat.
