Thomas A Morton

About me

I am your neighborhood attorney.  I have been in practice for 11 years.  My experience includes the United States Marine Corps, large firms, and small firms, but I began my solo practice because the only people I like to work for are my clients.  I am a single parent who successfully fought for equal time with my young daughter.  I have extensive trial and appellate experience and cannot wait to help you with your legal problems.
