Caring, compationate and dedicated
Ms. Morgan is all about representing her clients in seeking the truth, and justice. Money is not a consideration for Ms. Morgan. When the case is outside her purview, Ms. Morgan will recommend the best attorney's in that practice. Ms. Morgan represented one of my siblings, myself and on two occasions recommended me to two different attorneys who represented me in seeking justice.

Ms. Davis is very knowledgeable about criminal justice my estranged husband had me arrested for cyber-stalking and the courts had Ms. Davis as my court appointed lawyer. My charges were dismissed!! I couldn't be happier!!

excellent attorney
i met with Ms. Davis, at Hatch, Little & Bunn, LLP over a case that another attorney was not very helpful with. Ms. Davis and her partner, Mr. William D. Young, were both very kind, caring and extremely knowledgeable. i felt so much better after meeting with them and very confident in their legal practice. my case has not come up as yet, however, i feel confident that Ms. Davis will do her best to help me in this horrible situation.
