about Beverly Allen

Hi there.

I’m Beverly.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

I decided to start this blog as a help to all the people I run into who have a genuine interest in legal journalism. You’d be surprised at how many men and women are drawn to this field.

I’ve been in the field of legal journalism for the last ten years, since I finished college. I’ve had stints as a freelance legal journalist and then I’ve also worked for a couple of high-caliber newspapers in their legal department as a staff writer.

My dad was a legal journalist. I named this blog after him (he was Jim Murphyda). He’s not around any more, so this blog is also a nod of honor to him.

Anyway, I hope these articles are helpful for you, wherever you are on the path of being a legal journalist.
