Keaton W. Murphy has been an associate attorney at Goble & Yow, PLLC in Clarksville, Tennessee since his admission to the Tennessee Bar Association in 2019. Mr. Murphy accepts a variety of cases but focuses his practice primarily on criminal defense, as well as family and juvenile law, personal injury, and civil litigation.

Having practiced in more than a dozen counties across Tennessee, Mr. Murphy is willing to go wherever his clients need him.

Mr. Murphy is a 2019 graduate of the University of Tennessee College of Law, where he completed a concentration in Advocacy and Dispute Resolution.
