Experienced and Knowledgeable
I had the good fortune to engage Attorney Ryan Morris of Foundation Legal to assist me with my successful clemency request in Florida. From the initial consultation it was apparent Attorney Morris had the experience and knowledge to ensure the best chance for a successful outcome. Attorney Morris walked me through the process where the smallest error could result in a denial or add lengthy delays. He and his office were great to work with and he stood with me at the hearing where I was granted a full pardon for an offense while I was a teenager over 40 years ago. I would highly recommend Attorney Ryan Morris if you need competent and experienced legal counsel with the clemency process in the state of Florida.

My clemency attorney
f there was 10 stars I would give him 10. Never have I met an attorney that is more attentive to your needs and stuck by my side for almost 10 years. The process was painless and the outcome was better than expected I would recommend anybody looking for a Clemency to call him as soon as possible

Mr. Morris is the best attorney I have ever worked with, both professionally and on a client basis. He is patient, kind and very detailed and honest. He is quite knowledgeable and if he isn't sure about something, he researches it fully for a proper and accurate response. I would recommend him to anyone and plan to work with him further for other matters. Mr. Morris is a completely trustworthy individual. He really works with his clients and secures the best avenue for them.

Business Related Councel
I had a few issues related to my business that I needed some legal guidance. I found Ryan Morris after performing a search on the internet. Ryan is very knowledgeable with regards to the legal system and how to navigate it properly when making important decisions that could have legal consequences. I found his council to be very helpful and with his assistance I was able to make the correct decision within my business that resulted in me avoiding any further legal issues. He charges a fair rate and is very trustworthy. If you are looking for legal guidance from someone who not only knows what they are doing but also does things right, I would recommend you seek Mr. Morris' help.

One of a kind
I have utilized Ryan's expertise on several occasions. He is very knowledgeable but more important to me was the thoroughness of his research and preparation. He is always able to respond to even the toughest questions without hesitation or erroneous answers. I have already recommended him to several friends of mine who were happy with his service and reasonable fees. I will gladly recommend him to family, friends and acquaintances without reservation.

Well informed and an incredibly persuasive writer
Ryan Morris took to my appeals case like a bulldog. From the start, he seemed like he had a good understanding of what my crappy situation was. I could tell he put a crazy amount of time into my brief and he generally kept me informed about what he was doing and in which direction he was going. You can tell he is a really good writer, even though I only partially understood his arguments. In the end, Ryan Morris saved me a ton of money. Thank you sir.

Great Service!!
Ryan has been very informative and kept up communication with me through my husbands appeal process. I am, what one could call, a "very needy" client. I am constantly calling and emailing Ryan and I can't say that he has never been unresponsive. He has gotten us a particular hearing for us via his appeal submission. Overall we are extremely satisfied.

Quality Service, Quality Advice
I reached out to Foundation Legal PA for legal advice and was more than satisfied with my experience. Mr. Morris is a true professional with a passion for law and customer service, two qualities that are sometimes rare to find in combination. Mr. Morris was available to take my calls or he was quick to return my messages. His knowledge of the legal system reassured me that I was in good hands. My experience with Foundation Legal PA and Mr. Morris was wonderful and I would highly recommend him to other seeking legal advice.

Paid but never heard back
Paid Mr. Morris $2500 and never heard if he ever filed my clemency request. 4 years now. Will post cancelled check and credit report.
Response from Ryan Morris February 2, 2023
Craig: Upon review of my files, I do not currently represent or have previously represented a Craig whose application has not been filed with the Florida Office of Executive Clemency. Further, I have correspondence from the Office of Executive Clemency confirming those filings, and any correspondence I have received was also provided to the applicant. It is important to note that applicant correspondence was provided directly to the applicant by the Office of Executive Clemency in Tallahassee, not only by myself. Anything I receive is also received by the applicant. Regardless, I always encourage those I work with to keep the lines of communication open. Should you be a client that I have previously assisted, I also encourage you to reach out with any questions you may have. Although many things like the difficulty of receiving clemency or the length of time it may take to receive a determination are out of our collective control and are thoroughly explained on the very first call I have with prospective clients, it does not mean there are not reasons for you to reach out using my firm contact information that was undoubtedly provided to you. I hope you are well, and I hope to hear from you soon. Ryan C. Morris, Esq. Foundation Legal, P.A. (407) 595-0735 [email protected]
