Very professional and thorough. Definitely recommended.

I am a real estate attorney, and I needed to find an attorney to assist my client in obtaining a liquor license for its business. One of my partners recommended Sean Morris, who did an outstanding job in representing my client. Mr. Morris was thorough, timely, and reasonably priced. I would refer to him again.

Mr. Morris not only gave us good legal advice when we were considering signing and lease and later when we had a legal issue with the landlord, he was very nice and very easy to talk to. He was also very good at explain the "legalese" language in contracts so we really understood exactly what the contracts meant before we made any decisions. We have hired him twice and I would definitely recommend him.

Sean is my "go to" guy on all matters food and beverage law. An excellent lawyer, wonderful guy, and fantastic at navigating the rather byzantine paths for liquor licenses, etc. in DC and Maryland. If you are a restauranteur, or have a client who is a restauranteur, keep Sean's number handy!
