Kevin P. Murphy, Esq.
Kevin P. Murphy comes to Van Kampen Law from Littler Mendelson, consistently recognized as the nation’s leading management-side labor and employment firm. During his years with Littler, Kevin represented the nation’s largest employers in discrimination, retaliation, harassment, wage and hour, labor, and non-competition litigation, in both class action and individual cases. Kevin has taken several of these cases to trial before federal and state courts, while securing the dismissal of others through motion practice. Kevin also successfully resolved many other cases through formal and informal mediation and represented employers in federal and state agency investigations.
In addition, Kevin previously advised large, midsize and small businesses alike on a variety of employment-related matters, including the enforceability of non-competition agreements, and drafted effective policies aimed at avoiding litigation and creating a healthy and supportive culture within these businesses.
In 2016, Kevin followed in Joshua Van Kampen’s footsteps in leaving a safe and lucrative career as a management-side attorney to join Van Kampen Law. Kevin now exclusively represents individuals in all types of employment matters because individuals deserve the same quality of representation enjoyed by the management of Fortune 500 companies.
Prior to joining Littler, Kevin served as a law clerk for both the Honorable Robert J. Conrad, then Chief United States District Judge for the Western District of North Carolina in Charlotte and the Honorable B. Avant Edenfield, United States District Judge for the Southern District of Georgia in Savannah, Georgia.
Kevin graduated magna cum laude from the University of Georgia School of Law in 2010, where he was published as a member of the Georgia Law Review, decorated as a member of several award-winning moot court teams, and recognized by his peers with the Matlock Award for the attorney they would want representing them if ever in need. Kevin graduated with honors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2007, with a degree in Economics and International Studies, where he led the undergraduate mock trial program, founded an annual mock trial tournament, and interned with the Global Education Center.
Kevin is a member of St. Matthew Catholic Church where he serves as a sacristan and a volunteer with the Mel’s Diner ministry, which has been feeding the hungry since 2001. Kevin also volunteers his time with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools’ Lunch with a Lawyer and Lawyers for Literacy programs.
Kevin serves on the Mecklenburg County Bar Association’s Pro Bono & Legal Recruitment Committee and handles pro bono matters for North Carolina Legal Aid.
