About Michael

Learn Michael’s areas of practice.

I am not just an attorney who practices criminal law. I am a Board Certified Criminal Trial Attorney, which is the Florida Bar's way of designating one as an expert in the field of criminal trial law. To achieve this I had to try a large number of cases, pass an arduous written examination and receive endorsements from judges, prosecutors and fellow attorneys. There are approximately 100,000 attorneys in the Florida bar and only 443 are board certified experts in criminal trial law. To date I have tried over 60 cases before a jury as lead attorney and acting almost always as sole counsel in cases whose charges include first-degree murder, capital sexual battery, dealing in stolen property, theft, DUI, driving with a suspended license, and aggravated battery to name a few. I have also tried approximately 100 non-jury trials which includes juvenile delinquency cases and probation revocation hearings. I will be happy to discuss with you my experience in each and every one of those trials to see if what I learned in them can help you.

I encourage everyone I consult with to talk to as many attorneys as possible so that they can find the right fit for them. I suggest two guidelines when looking to hire a lawyer in criminal matters:

1. Never pay for a consultation from a local practitioner. I never charge to speak to someone over the phone, in person or in a local jail. I find the concept repugnant. A lawyer may present to you as “Well, I am giving you my time to discuss your case, thus I should be compensated.” No, at a basic level we are interviewing for job to get your business. You are giving us your time to talk about your situation and giving us an opportunity to see if we can help. Because you are the one giving something up for our benefit, there is no sense is a lawyer asking you for compensation.

2. Look for a Board Certified Attorney. The Board Certification program is run by the Florida Bar and the title it conveys upon a lawyer is earned through the efforts described above. It is not one that is simply paid for as certifications from other organizations that I will not name can be. The trial work is hard. However, it is through that work that we establish our level of knowledge and expertise that results in judges, prosecutors and other defense lawyers giving their endorsements for Board Certification. A Board Certified lawyer is an experience and well practiced one. Also, it shows a lawyers ability to commit themselves to a goal. If they are willing to go trough through the arduous certification process, then it shows they have the will to commit themselves fully to your case.

Another Happy Client
We hired Mr. Morrison for my son who we felt was wrongly arrested. Mr.Morrison filed a Motion to Suppress with a well put together argument . My sons charges got dropped as a result. Mike Morrison is very professional , honest and available to his clients ( even if they are incarcerated) ! He was also the most reasonable on his fees of any attorney I contacted ! In my opinion he is the best ! Thanks Mike Morrison

Best Young Attorney In Florida
Attorney Michael David Morrison is the best young attorney in central Florida. I hired him and was facing another prison sentence because I violated community control probation. He visited me in jail a total of 6 times in a 2 month period. He worked with my Father & Mother while I was in jail and always answered all their calls to set their minds at ease. He also answered all my calls from jail. His hard work got me out of a prison sentence and I received a alternative sentence which is a program that will really help me. He is so professional, respectful and caring about all his cases. I have so much respect for him and would refer him to any body facing a criminal case! Thank you Brother for everything! Brad
