To PROTECT your legal position DO NOT HIRE THIS ATTORNEY. I gave Morrison one star only because there is no option for NO STARS! My case came to an abrupt end with only semi-satisfactory results due to Don's license suspension at the time we were in mediation. Not only did he overcharge me (among the many charges filed against Morrison w/the WA State Bar Association), he had to stop representing me WITHOUT ANY TYPE OF NOTIFICATION before the conclusion of the case due to that suspension. Not once did he apologize for his behavior. Equally as offensive, Don only refunded a portion of the overcharges I requested, stating that he would have to file bankruptcy if I pursued collection. I strongly suggest to anyone considering hiring this man to do as I did and get a copy of the charges against Don Morrison from the Washington State Bar Association.
I would have a hard time writing anything bad about this attorney. He is very kind and compassionate about his work. He is very thorough and does an excellent job of fighting for legal rights and custody of a child, even though the courts in Washington state, along with Guardian ad Litems will always go with the mother. Very unfortunate. But even if you don't win custody, Don will see to it that the father has MAXIMUM time with their child, along with making sure the mother doesn't try to undermine the child or father's rights regarding education and medical needs. He will set the mother straight on JUST WHAT SHE CAN AND CANNOT DO! Thanks Don.
this is my second review, I believe that he is a good man....but it took 6 months to end my divorce, and and another 6 months to complete my 401k. I called, emailed ,and text over a 100 times. trying to get my non-contested divorce and 401k paper work done. I believe that he was a good lawer at one point in his career, but not in the year It took me to get divorced.
For those of you who are christian, please don't be offended or alarmed, I only mean that had Don been Jesus's lawyer, he would have no doubt won his case, and thus Jesus may never have been crucified!
, Don Morrison ( and his wife) may seriously be two of the finest, most exemplary people I have ever met. Don, as an attorney, is unequaled in his dedication to his client. He is as well unparalleled in his dogged devotion in the pursuit of justice for his client. If I were ever accused of a capital crime and facing the death penalty, ( and Don, as far as I know, is NOT a criminal lawyer) I would lay my life in his hands without hesitation. Besides having been my attorney , he became an unflagging freind in one of the worst periods of my life. In fact had it not been for him and his beautiful wife, I may well have ended up being charged with a capital crime.
He went so far and so beyond his call of duty that I cannot calculate a reward that could approach
acknowledging his immesuable and selfless service to me. And as for me, he could not have possibly had a worse, more wretched client .
If he will take your case , you may sleep sound in knowing that in matters of law, or any matter that should bring you in contact with him, you have chosen the best possible person for your advocatcy .
He, unlike most attorneys , does not seek to encourage a savage and wreckless pursuit of his clients advisaries by inciting their rage or encouraging in them a will to devastate and destroy with a mindless vengeance fueled by self-righteous indignation thats real function is to hide their own motivation and focus which is his clients ( your) pocketbook or wallet.
Don truly looks to his clients ultimate needs, both in the immediacy of now AND the future. His keen sense and knowledge of the law is tempered by an equally keen and deep sense of wisdom. When brought together in this man, it produces an individule who understands the true beauty of the soul or essence embedded in the concept of justice, which is, in a word, "balance". Thus the pursuit of justice is nothing more than seeking to restore to equilibrium, a situation which has through some set of circumstances, become imbalanced. He understands that the greatest service he can render to his client is to seek this ultimate restoration for the best possible outcome for all the parties involved.as opposed to the "all to common practice " by most lawyers, which is to maintain the freshness of injury through prolonged acts of attrition, designed ito lengthen the process of resolution in order to bleed thier clients of every possible measure of wealth they possess.
To put it precise and concisely, this man is one of the most intelligent, honorable and compassionate human beings I have ever met. And the same is to said of his wonderful wife.
Don is currently my attorney, handling child custody. Not long ago he represented me in a court jurisdiction matter. He is exceptionally knowledgeable, professional, and ethical. He remained calm when the opposing attorney verbally assaulted my character with fictitious accusations. Don opted to take the 'high road' by presenting the court with sustainable facts. His arguments addressed ONLY relevant issues. His diligence in preparing the case paid off and we won.
I highly recommend Don to anyone who needs an exceptionally qualified attorney who has as much integrity as he has expertise.
I have hired don for my devorce and he has truly done a good job so far. I would hire him again.
Don handled my complaint very well and I was very pleased with the result. He has a very nice manner in dealing with difficult situations and finding solutions that work for everyone. I would highly recommend him.
I hired Don to represent me in my divorce and custody case, thinking that I was hiring him for a relatively simple and straightforward case. The opposing side however turned it into a very complicated matter and Don was amazing at providing professional service that always put me and my kids first. No matter how messy things got, Don always fought hard for us. He was very thorough in asking me where I was on every issue to make sure he fully understood what I was seeking. It was obvious that he had spent a lot of time preparing for every aspect of our case - much more so than the opposing side. Don always provided complete, thorough information to help me make decisions on how to move forward in the best way. I never felt misled or like anything was withheld. He also kept me in the loop on where we were at in the process and where we were headed so that I was just as confident as he was going into every hearing. I appreciated how often Don communicated with me about everything and think this showed even in the court room compared to how the opposing side communicated - or lack thereof. Don and I were always on the same page going into hearings and the opposing side obviously had not talked about where they stood on issues nearly as much as we had. I was, and still am, very grateful for the service he has provided and felt that the judge truly understood where we were coming from. I would recommend Don without hesitation to anyone going through this type of case.
Mr. Morrison handled my prenuptial agreement in an efficient and timely fashion. Having no prior experience in the execution of such documents, he answered my questions clearly and helped me to better understand the legal jargon by explaining it in layman's terms. He was both professional and personable.
I picked Mr Morrison to handle my case because of his reputation as being both fair and tenacious. I found him to be both.
His experience enabled him to advise me on what the probable effects of various choices would be, with a high degree of accuracy. He encouraged me to get a settlement that was fair to me, and not just expedient.
I am still satisfied with the agreement, nearly two years later, and would highly recommend him.
