I was involved in a rear end motor vehicle accident in 2006 and had the good fortune to be represented by the Law Offices of James E. Morris. After receiving $25,000 from the defendant’s carrier, I received all of the remaining SUM policy limits of $275,000 from my carrier at arbitration. This law firm is not afraid of insurance carriers or the court room and will aggressively litigate their cases to the fullest. The law offices of James E. Morris is knowledgeable, personal, and professional, and makes every attempt to educate their clients about their case. The client is treated with respect and understanding and Mr. Morris and his staff goes the extra mile in addressing many of the issues associated with a personal injury action that other firms neglect. I would recommend this law firm to anyone in need of quality lawyering.

James Morris represented my two daughters for injuries they sustained in an automobile accident. We were satisfied with his legal representation. In particular, I was pleased with his great communication and accessibility--Jim was always responsive and kept me informed at every step of the process.

I endorse this lawyer's work. He is a fine, ethical lawyer who cares deeply for each of his clients. Unlike some personal injury lawyers who take in files and then pass them off to less experienced associates, Jim is attentive to all of his clients' files to be certain that they achieve the benefit of his 30 years of practice experience.
