Morgan has represented me for several years now off and on when I've made stupid mistakes in my life- from petty traffic stuff that went into warrant status, to assault, alcohol and drug related charges etc. From misdemeanors to felonies, he's gotten every case of mine dismissed. He walks into court with a smile every time and leaves with one. Not only is he an excellent lawyer, he's an excellent man. I hold a very high regard for him as a person and his family as well. I owe him for much more than what money can by. God bless him!
When I got arrested for my DWI, it spelled bad news for my career. I came to Morgan not knowing what to expect with this charge, and he immediately made my feel at ease. He told me to just continue on with my daily life and let him handle this aspect of my life...don't worry, I got this!! Although it's hard not to worry about the possible outcomes, I did as he said. Morgan immediately had me get a new license, and within a few weeks received word he had won my ALR hearing. Next came time for the first hearing. We talked about resetting the hearing, and while hard to understand, I knew he was looking out for my best interest. Patience is a hard thing to have during these times, but I trusted in him and his ability. Throughout this process, his assistant stayed on top of anything I needed to do, and both him and her were always available to answer any questions. After nearly two years, it came time to put up or shut up. The DA had yet to offer any plea deals, despite their ability to prove any guilt in the case. Morgan called me pumped up and excited, and ready to take my case to trial..LETS DO THIS!! I agreed and continued to believe in his ability to handle this matter. A few days before it went to trial, the DA finally offered a plea. He called to tell me about what was being offered, and while the deal was good, we both liked our chances in court. He was confident in winning the case, and his confidence rubbed off on me. I told him I needed to think about the plea, but I felt comfortable letting him handle the trial if I decided to go that route. It wasn't 15 minutes after we talked, Morgan called me back with the best news I had heard in a long time..CASE DISMISSED!! It was a long time to wait, but not once did a doubt Morgan's ability to get the job done. If you are ever in a bind and caught in a situation similar to mine, I would highly recommend Morgan. Hands down, life-saving attorney. Couldn't be happier with the choice I made in letting him represent me in this matter.
I had never been in trouble with the law in my 30 years, and then I was arrested for DWI. I was referred to Morgan through a family attorney and met with Morgan the day after the incident. Having never been through something like this, to say I was scared and nervous would be an understatement. However, after my first meeting with Morgan, it felt like a tremendous weight had been lifted off my shoulders. He lays out the situation for you and then tells you to not worry about it because that is his job.
At the first court appearance they offered me pretrial. Now I realize every situation is different, but when I asked him what he would do, and he told me "if it was me I would fight it," I knew what I was going to do. He played their back and forth game of resets, and finally a trial date was set. Morgan called me a week prior to the trial date, I thought he was calling me to discuss the trial, but he had better news - CASE DISMISSED!!
I cannot recommend Morgan enough, and I am telling you if you need a DWI attorney, your search needs to end with Morgan Bourque!
Morgan took on my DWI case and was professional, knowledgeable, and most importantly, comforting. I was in major panic mode when I first met him, but he quickly calmed me down and told me that it was his problem now and that I could calm down. I am living out of state and knew it was going to be a long road ahead. Morgan began working his magic and a reasonable time later he got my case dismissed. I feel so vindicated in trusting him and would definitely recommend him to take on any case you may have.
Morgan is the best attorney around. He answered all my questions promptly and made me feel at ease with my case. He got the job done quickly and I can get on with my life now. I could not have asked for anyone better to handle my case and get it dismissed. Deserves way more than 5 stars.
I'd like to put out a disclaimer that I was not prompted or paid to write this review. This is real life and real situations. I have known Morgan for about 3 years. I was originally drawn to him through careful consideration above all other lawyers given his particular field. His charisma won me over immediately. But thats not all, charisma can only get you so far. So here is my story.
I came to Morgan after my first dwi ( I have had two) he sat me down and talked to me on my level. He didn't sugar coat anything. He gave me instructions, clear instructions, on what to do. Long story short his motto was trust. Trust I did. I followed his instructions wisely and understandably. He explained the reasons and scenarios that may play out and the consequences that follow. His confidence amazed me,but; not in an arrogant way. Morgan was very reassuring and settled my nerves. 6 months if that I was dismissed. Relinquished of all the wait on my shoulders just like that.
Not even 2 years later I had gotten in a wreck. The famous saying was it wasn't my fault. Well Ill spare you the story and say I decided to drink and drive again against my better judgment. When I was asked to blow I refused knowing the liquid slosh in my stomach would tarnish my reputation. Not wanting to go to jail, I went through the paces, but to no avail. I have an option. ( at the time I didn't feel that intoxicated) but the mind can fool even the best. I decided to get my blood drawn to prove my innocence. It was a .09. ( supposedly)
DWI just like that. Now I know a few lawyers around and again I could have chosen anyone. Morgan has already gained my trust. I call him up and ask for help. The guy doesn't bat an eye. Most guys like myself hope for the best and expect the worse. Well, throw that quote away. The guys a go getter. He is the Brian Urlacher of lawyers. The prosecutors wouldn't budge. They wanted to give me probation and a fine and possible a breathlyzer in my truck. I was terrified. Keep in mind that my fiancé's dad is a police officer. So this case meant everything. Well the people that took my blood missed a couple beats. Morgan picked up on it and sacked the QB. You cant go wrong. He knows his stuff. I don't know how he does the stuff he does but Morgan does it. I have a huge weight lifted off my shoulders and I cant be more appreciative. Truly saved my reputation and my future. Words can not express. IF you follow his instructions and trust him. You'll make it out alive. You don't have to take my word for it but I am around to write this review and I am telling you to pay careful consideration for whom you choose to represent you.
Came to Morgan a few months back on a restraining order arrest. Not only was he on top of everything, exceptional knowledge and wisdom, but was the best Attourney I could ever ask for! I would recommend him and his law firm for any and all of my future issues, and yours as well. You will be satisfied beyond your standards. Now he is and always be one of my great friends and consider him family. You can't say that about most people let alone attorneys these days. Best in the business and a true legend who will fight and win for you!
I knew after hearing those words for the first time, at our initial meeting, that I had found a lawyer. There I was, 20years later, facing a second DWI and the effects of such charges could do to my family and career. Morgan was very knowledgeable and did an exceptional job of keeping me informed and guiding me through this process. I cannot say enough about Morgan’s professionalism and rapport with his client. Every time we would meet he would tell me something to the effect of “Go, get out of here! Take care of you and your family. Don’t worry about all of this. That’s my job to worry about it, I’ve got this.” Not only is he good with the client he is exceptionally good as a lawyer in the legal system. I couldn’t be happier as the charges were dismissed. I believe he genuinely looked out for me and my rights. Not because he was paid but because he loves what he does and he is damn good at it! When you find someone that loves what they do, they usually excel.
Hiring Morgan Bourque was the best decision I have ever made. A year and a half ago I was arrested and faced conviction of a DWI, something that would have surely hindered my occupational aspirations. Morgan fought for my rights, and today I am free of that burden. I am truly grateful for his services and adept legal strategy. I recommend Morgan Bourque, he delivers.
Morgan was quick to respond to my call for help and offered me the peace of mind I desperately needed amidst my charges. He was extremely knowledgeable about the law and worked diligently to protect my career and integrity. I highly recommend Morgan based on his professionalism, knowledgeability, and personable charisma.
