About Us

In 1994, Sheela Murthy set out to create a different kind of law firm – one where outstanding immigration representation and a deep commitment to humanity go hand in hand. We meet these goals by forging together the Murthy Law Firm with MurthyDotCom and the MurthyNAYAK Foundation.

At the head of our organization is the Murthy Law Firm. What began as a small solo practice has become a leader in the field of immigration law. Our growth was fueled by a hard-earned reputation for quality, integrity, and excellence. With 80+ lawyers and staff at our main office in the Baltimore suburb of Owings Mills, Maryland, a satellite office in Seattle, Washington, and another 20 employees at our affiliate offices in Chennai and Hyderabad, India, the Murthy Law Firm is the brain of our operation.

From the beginning, MurthyDotCom has put a wealth of free information and online tools into the hands of the immigrant community. Our site provides you with up-to-the-minute information on immigration law and policy, explained in terms you don’t have to be a lawyer to understand. Whether you subscribe to our weekly eNewsletter or RSS, log onto our chat sessions or online discussion forum, dial in for our teleconferences, download our audio podcasts or video recordings, or follow our firm blog or social media, we have something for everyone. Sharing our knowledge is a public service to which we are committed. It is just one way we at the Murthy Law Firm offer a helping hand to the community.

At the heart of our service is the MurthyNAYAK Foundation, through which we support socially transformative projects that change the world, one person at a time. Our Foundation invests in projects that empower women, children, and immigrants – here and overseas – providing good nutrition, educational opportunities, and affordable health care, while working to vindicate their legal and human rights.

Head, heart, and hands – all working to fulfill dreams. We look forward to helping you realize your American dream.
