It’s not uncommon to hear clients raving about Tracy Murn in the lobby of Axley Attorneys.
Murn, an associate attorney at the firm, practices real estate, land use, municipal, estate planning and general business law. She possesses an ability to generate new business almost anywhere, her colleagues say.
“Last year alone, she generated more new business than dozens of experienced partners at the firm,” said Nicole Hadaway, marketing director at Axley. “Her positive, gregarious personality is infectious and makes her highly valued by coworkers and clients alike. Her innate ability to sell her own skills and that of the firm made her one of the youngest municipal attorneys in the state to represent local towns.”
Murn said she enjoys helping clients solve problems and grappling with the intellectual puzzles that come with the job.
“The mix of substantive, complex legal work, in-person meetings, phone conferences with opposing counsel, and advising associates working on my files keeps each day really interesting and stimulating,” she said. “Not a day goes by where I don’t learn something new. The marketing aspect of building my practice has also been really rewarding.”
Like many people, Murn was forced to work from home when the pandemic hit. It was a mostly seamless transition, but Murn said she has missed dealing face-to-face with clients and others in the office.
“I am back to in-person meetings at the office under safe circumstances, but I am still working predominately at home until I deliver my second child in June,” she said. “Thankfully I can do everything I did before from home with limited in-person meetings, but I am looking forward to being in the office more.”
Outside of work, Murn enjoys spending time with her husband, Matthew, and their 2-year-old daughter, Millicent. Murn is also an avid weightlifter and cyclist.
“All three of us love to move and be outside,” she said.
