      Ms. Knisely:
      Please contact Mrs. Jones or Mr. Murphy through their website http://www.murphyjoneslaw.com . In the upper right hand corner is a link to the firm’s current blog with up to date articles, news and information. This site is defunct and no longer operational. Thank you for taking the time to inquire as to our legal services. Once you have contacted Murphy Jones LLP, an attorney will reply after the Christmas holiday. I will also pass along your inquiry to Mr. Murphy for immediate consideration.

    WOW Kathleen!! Congratulations on your accomplishments!! I was just doing a Google Search: “Shelley Jones RN San Diego” and discovered you and your husband and read the comments re: Terrorism Case Presentation above. I am for sure familiar with being hacked and Identity Theft; I have been hacked online twice. Not pretty.
    Shelley Jones is an RN, friend of mine, married to
    Cardio-thoracic Surgeon, Steve Jones, both native of San Diego. Steve, as a Chief Resident, trained my ex-husband in General Surgery in TX. I spoke with Steve in 2011 when in San Diego for a meeting but my fiance and me were too busy to make plans with them outside of the meeting. I am interested in Legal Nursing and have just sent my transcripts in to the California Board of Nursing Yesterday. The short traveling agency assignments are not my preference as you well know! My soon to be step son made the San Diego State University Football team as a freshman. I really would love to be there!! Can you suggest how to make Legal Nursing Contacts for employment in San Diego?

    Thanks so much,

    Sheila Bean

    Its like you learn my thoughts! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the ebook in it or something. I think that you simply can do with a few p.c. to drive the message house a bit, but instead of that, that is great blog. A fantastic read. I’ll definitely be back.
