Assisting Clients Throughout Worcester County

Sarah Varney joined Murphy & Rudolf in March of 2022 and concentrates her practice in criminal defense and civil litigation in Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. Prior to joining the firm, Ms. Varney worked as a Staff Attorney at the New Hampshire Public Defender—representing clients charged in the Juvenile, District, and Superior Courts—and previously interned with the Philadelphia Public Defender’s Office and the CPCS Public Defender Division office here in Worcester.

She has yet to lose the public defender heart, and, with a background in the service and hospitality industries, Ms. Varney goes the extra mile to ensure her clients get the best advocacy possible.
