My name is J. Andrew Murrell and I want to be your Justice of the Peace. I have a BA in Journalism from LSU and a Juris Doctorate from the Southern University Law Center. I went to law school part-time at night while working a full-time job so that I could be a better provider for my family. Before I became a lawyer, I was the Executive Producer for Murphy, Sam and Jodi.
Giving back to the community is important. I am the spokesperson for the City of St. George, work with a program that helps children with dyslexia, volunteered for the OLOL Children's Hospital, and organized the City of St. George Food Drive.
I was an Assistant Attorney General before entering private practice. In my private practice, I represent many homeowner associations and small businesses.
The Justice of the Peace should provide access to justice that is easily accessible, affordable, and consistent.
You have a right to your day in court and the Justice of the Peace should be there to give you that opportunity. I look forward to being your next Justice of the Peace.
