Prior to joining the Murphy Law Group, Mr. Groh served as a legal consultant with the Criminal Justice Section of the American Bar Association, where he contributed to the ABA’s efforts to reform the extensive system of often illogical civil disqualifications which prevent individuals from finding employment and reintegrating into society after being convicted of a criminal offense.
