About Me

I'm an experienced US trademark and copyright attorney living in St. Louis, Missouri.  Since graduating from law school in 2005, I have helped hundreds of individuals, businesses, organizations, associations, and educational institutons avoid the devastating and disastrous effects of being sued for intellectual property infrngement by making sure they take all the legal steps necessary to protect themselves.  I take this responsibility very seriously because I have seen first-hand what can happen when someone fails to seek the advice and guidance of a trusted intellectual property attorney.


When I'm not wearing my attorney hat, I enjoy weightlifting, running, playing softball and volleyball, following current events, trying new restaurants, and watching baseball (especially the St. Louis Cardinals).  I am also an instructor at a local community college where I teach a continuing education course on trademark and copyright.

  • Marc Jacob

    Morris has handled trademark applications for a number of my clients and I feel very comfortable referring my clients to him. He is able to explain the process in a clear way, and his publications contain a wealth of knowledge so I can properly advise my clients of when their intellectual property issues need to be addressed.

  • Charles Edwin Runyan

    Mr. Turek and I were on opposite sides of a trademark opposition. He knew opposition law and procedure and how to apply it. He dealt with my client and I in a very professional manner. I would recommend him to handle trademark work for companies and individuals and know that it would be completed correctly and cost-effectively.
