Rivers was the quintessential professional from our very first meeting. I was very upset that it was necessary to litigate my auto injury case with the insurance company. Rivers explained the law surrounding these types of cases; gave me a history on the evalution of the laws; and then explained in detail the process that would be followed as my case proceeded towards our assinged court date. During the following months, Rivers and his team handled all documents, responses, appointments, etc. He also ensured that a member of his staff accompanied me on depositons, doctors appointements, etc. to ensure my confidence during these visits and protect my rights. As the case ran its course, there were times that I became frustrated with what was happening to me and took my frustration out on Rivers. Rivers never became angry, upset or arrogant towards me. He responded calmly and professionally, addressed my concerns and we moved on. In the end, Rivers was able to resolve my case prior to going to court (which I was very grateful for) and for a settlement amount that was much higher than I anticipated or expected. I would definately recommend Rivers to anyone looking for an extremely knowledgeable Attorney and one who really does put his clients interests above his own.

From beginning until the end Rivers was a careing hard worker handling my case proffessionally and with compasion. I had a brain injury from being hit by a car as a pedestrian and Rivers worked with me and was very patient with the cognitive difficulties I was having. He got me the best care and was there for me every step of the way. Office staff is like family. He took care of the law aspect as well as the human aspect in my case. I highly recommend him to anyone needing a good compassionate lawyer who is a Gladiator in the ring of fighting the insurance company to get justice in my case!

Major traffic accidents are always traumatic for all parties involved. I considered ours to be a horrific one. With all our focus and energies given to medical help and healing, it was of great comfort to have Mr. Rivers Morrell III along with his friendly and competent staff, handle all the bills and legal entanglements. His expertise, professionalism, persistence, patience, and being readily accessible were all remarkable! We are most appreciative of Mr. Morrell and his staff in bringing our lawsuit to a successful conclusion, enabling us to move on and resume our lives. Should you find yourself in similar circumstances, I highly recommend Mr. Morrell to represent you as your attorney!

I would be, and very well may be, writing a novel, to support River's as ABSOLUTELY THE BEST ATTORNEY I HAVE EVERY ENCOUNTERED! I don't even know where to start, so I suppose the beginning would be best. I was hit head on by a drunk driver, suffered Traumatic Brain Injury and literally, lost so much because of the accident. As an Educational Psychologist and single mother, I tend to put the needs of others' before my own. As such, Rivers has had a difficult case to contend with, to say the least. TBI and other problems related to the accidemt, caused me to lose my salary for a year at work, fiscally, I've never been in such a bad place, my judgement was impaired, attention, organizational skills, memory - I once could remember and do several things at once, I now have to and do document EVERYTHING, I was working on my dissertation - gone, 100,0000 in student loans, 0 Ph.D, the decisions I made after the accident in my personal life would have been decisions NEVER made, prior to the accident. Bottom line, I was in a very vulnerable place...not as much so, since requesting representation by Rivers - he not only is EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE, his integrity is impeccable, he's creative in finding solutions with difficult cases, clients are always able to reach him, updating his clients daily appears routine for him. NOT ONCE DID I FIND MYSELF UNABLE TO REACH HIM, If he was in court, I literally would be contacted within a few hours, and the thing that most impressed me with Rivers, is that no matter how large or small your case may be to 'most' attorneys, Rivers personally treated my case (which again, is a difficult one - he could have simply given up, victims of TBI are not easy to deal with, he didn't). If he encountered a problem, I was amazed at the creative solutions he would bring to the table . I initially did not take care of my needs first, which I should have. To say I have a life where several people depend on me daily, and responsibility seems to be my given name, would be an understatement. The accident literally caused such upheaval in my life, I would have lost EVERYTHING , had I not found Rivers. I originally requested representation from an attorney who had my case for 9 months, and did absolutely nothing. I found Rivers, he contacted me and everyone he needed to immediately, when he crossed a path that caused a problem for my case,, he was able to find immediate solutions, and won the case in 3 1/2 months. Rivers not only cares about the case he is representing, he does what he can to support his clients who may be experiencing upheaval in their lives, while working on your case - he cares. His staff is wonderful, I've not once spoken to an , I never felt ignored. Rivers is almost always IMMEDIATELY available and again, if he's not, his Staff makes certain the client is aware of where he is and Rivers contacts his clients immediately. TBI is difficult. The client may forget to return his call (he understands this and his follow through is consistent. He is absolutely available for his clients and he wins - he wins cases that most could not). I am not a person who would generally be seen as a 'victim' to most who know me. I have worked very hard in my life and have lost most of it, due to this injury and now, people that have known me, are amazed that I'm able to get up in the morning. My situation was so severe, but not so to those who hadn't met me before. Rivers supported me though the process of the case on a personal level, as well. He truly has given me hope that my life may regain normalacy. Rivers gives attention to All Cases, big or small. All of his clients are treated equally. I'm not certain my life will ever me the same but what I can say is that had I not had Rivers representing me, I would have absolutely LOST everything. I recommend Rivers to be the best attorney out there - do not look for another, he by far is the very best!!!!

I suffered a shocking facial dog bite leaving me ill equipped to handle logistics of medical cost reimbursement. I contacted Mr. Morrell and he took over for me and I was able to concentrate on recovering. He was knowledgable , focused, and was very successful at recovering my costs, and future costs. He has a caring and competent staff. I was very pleased with his work and the outcome.

Rivers Morrell and his team were very professional. I was completely comfortable with Rivers, he made my situation smooth and less stressful. I was always informed of changes in a prompt fashion and my best interest was always at hand. I didn't need to do anything, everything was clearly provided for me and anything I did not understand was explained to me. The legalities sometimes can be hard for a person who is not in this type of field to understand but Rivers and his team always made sure I was very knowledgeable of my case. He is highly recommendable in my book. I appreciated all that he has done for me.

Rivers Morrell and his entire staff were extremely helpful in assisting me with my case. From our first meeting I felt like I was his only client. Mr. Morrell and his staff kept me informed frequently regarding my case and it felt very good to be working with a professional staff. As a lawyer, Mr. Morrell was top notch and I very fortunate to have had him representing me.

Rivers Morrell and his superior staff fought for me tooth and nail. They always answered everyone of my questions right away , and made me feel right at home. When the chips were down Rivers was there to pick them up for me , and make a small miracle happen . Rivers Morrell is top notch , and if there is any future dilemma with either my family or myself Rivers Morrell is the first person i will be calling. I recommend Rivers Morrell to all my family and friends.

When I first met Mr. Morrell after my accident I was in pain and very distraught. He was both compassionate, easy to talk to, and above all confidant in taking on my case. Throughout the entire process he kept me informed in a timely fashion explaining all the legal information in a way I could understand. When the insurance company offered me a settlement that I felt wasn't quite fair, he fought for me to get an amount I was happy with. I trust him as an attorney and highly recommend using him.

I've never had to hire a lawyer before and was recommended to Mr. Morrell. I did some checking around before I engaged his services. Mr. Morrell's knowledge and integrity is of the highest order. I never felt rushed yet felt everything was proceeding as it should. I have been very pleased with the outcome of my case.

Before meeting with Mr. Morrell III I interviewed 3 other attorneys before choosing Mr. Morrell III. I was very impressed with his knowledge and his caring attitude and his professional offfice staff. His team kept me advised on every aspect of my case. The best part of my personal injury case was watching Mr. Morrell III in action at both my deposition and settlement meeting. I would highly recommend the law firm of Rivers Morrell III to anybody that is looking for a honest caring and at times a bulldog when it comes to fighting for your rights.
(by the way he won my case for me and it has changed my life)

Rivers and his firm are very open and honest with you about everything. Before I met him, I met 2 others and formed the opinion that lawyers and honesty were a contradiction. I'm pretty pleased about how my case turned out and highly recommend Rivers.

Had the same case with another attorney who did not only win the case but made me feel not protected and helpless, by other people that was an attorney who was suppose to be one of the strongest. We lost the case, I was hopeless. Then found Rivers!!! OMG!!! THIS IS WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT SUPERIOR!!! HE WON!!! I couldn't be happier with his SUPERIOR HARD WORK!!!!!! I GREATLY APPRECIATE YOUR TIME RIVERS AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND ALL YOUR HARD WORK! YOU ARE A SHARK!!!! IN A GOOD WAY! YOU FIGHT FOR YOUR CLIENT! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!- Tatyana Huft

Mr. Morrell is an enigma of EXCELLENCE.
Mr. Morrell represented me in a traffic accident case where by third party crushed into me at crasswalk.
I am impressed by his performance over 12 month period, he is great communicator, attention to detail and above all his integrity is commandable - simply "par excellence."
He commes from excellence and delivers excellence.
I would never again hire any other attorney but Mr. Morrell.
