about Murphy Insurance Agency


Who We Are

Murphy Insurance is one of the largest family-owned, independent agencies in Massachusetts.  We handle all types of personal, business and financial insurance.  We work with over 25 insurance carriers and have access to over 100 more allowing us to develop customized plans to meet our clients’ specific needs. 

In 1937, D. Francis “Frank” Murphy started Murphy Insurance Agency in Hudson, Massachusetts.  He had “passion” for the insurance business, his customers, and his family and friends.  Frank was quite good at taking care of people and had already built a great business with many loyal customers until his passing in 1964. His son, Dennis F. Murphy, Jr. joined the Agency in 1960, sharing in his dad’s passion and love of the business. Under Dennis, Jr.’s watch, the Agency grew from a single person, Hudson based operation into a 60+ person regional operation with 6 locations. Dennis, Jr. led the Agency until his passing in 2021. Today, the agency is still very much a family-owned agency. Michael Murphy and Dennis F. Murphy, III joined the Agency in the early 1990’s and share in the family’s deep caring for the business and its customers. We’ve taken care of many clients for their whole lives. In fact, we now work with third and fourth generations of client families.  

Over our 85 years in business, we’ve changed to meet the needs of our clients and keep pace with the ever changing demands of the insurance industry.  We’ve grown to 6 locations in Bolton, Groton, Harvard, Hudson, Marlborough and Medway, and serve clients across the state and beyond. Our greatest achievement is maintaining our focus on what’s most important…taking care of people. We invite you to learn more about us and hope that we'll have an opportunity to assist you.
