About Morris

Learn Morris’s areas of practice.

I am a seasoned labor and employment attorney with a demonstrated record of success in the cost-effective resolution of labor and employment matters through excellent communication, negotiation and interpersonal skills and knowledge.  I possess more than thirty years of responsible experience in all facets of public and private sector labor relations, employment law and human resource management.  I am an arbitrator with the National Association of Securities Dealers and an employment and commercial arbitrator with the American Dispute Resolution Center, Inc.  I am also a mediator with the CT Department of Education, responsible for mediating municipal administrator and teacher collective bargaining contracts.  I am a Executive Committee member of the CT Bar Association's Labor and Employment Law Section and served as Chair of the section.


My only deficiency is golf:  I have a passion for the game that is not returned.  Maybe the new driver will help.

Needed help with an employee
I'm a general dentist who was faced with a bit of a complicated issue with a long term employee. Mickey was able to clearly spell out the law as it pertained to my specific situation. This allowed for a understanding of the options afforded to me by the law. Together, we came up with a solution that brought a wonderful resolution to the issue I was facing. My employee was pleased and grateful for the way she was able to leave my practice. I could not recommend Mickey too strongly. The service he provided was superb.

Someone you can count on!
Morris (Mickey) Busca, worked on a case for myself and three co-workers this year, to a successful end! His knowledge of Labor Law, provided the answers to small details that evenually won our case. I never lost confidence in him, because he told us up front that he never takes a case that he can't win. His confidence came through, Smart, friendly, informative all the way! I fully recommend him to anyone seeking his legal advice. He is a winner!

Lawyer for the Short-Changed
Attorney Busca is bright, widely knowledgeable in his field of employment law. He asks the right questions. He listens closely to your answers. He asks for clarification and synthesizes all he knows about your case and about relevant law into one, useful package. In the face of the defense attornery, Mickey is patient, careful, deceptively quiet, and one step ahead of the opposition. Mickey is also very good at letting you know when you go "off track" with excessive demands, overly personnal responses to the opposition, and just plain irrational. I like this guy. I'd rehire him in a heartbeat.
