I appreciate the the job Jan did for us!
We sold one of our houses we owned but the Title Company paid off the house we lived in currently instead of the one we sold. Big mess needless to say and I needed a good Attorney, Jan Morris was the man for the Job. He dealt with the Title Companies Insurance holder and got a settlement for our damages. He is a very nice guy to work with and easy to talk to as well.

A Great Help in a Difficult Time
This spring I was unexpectedly faced with the task of acting as personal representative for my brother who had just died. A friend who had assisted my brother through his long painful last illness recommended that I call Jan Michael Morris. I called him immediately and explained my situation. He immediately researched my brother's information and got back to me with a clear explanation of where we were and what we had to do. I called him several times with questions and concerns and got clear and complete answers. When I came to Florida, I met with him. He reviewed the case with me and I felt very comfortable with how he was handling it. He kept me informed of the process from start to finish. He found a simple correct way to settle the estate and saw it through to its conclusion. We were able to complete the case with an Order of Summary Distribution. He has offered to consult with me on any further questions about the case. I would heartily recommend him to any of my friends who needed legal assistance.

Best legal help I could get
Years ago, I used Jan Morris to advise and represent me with a non-compete I had with a former employer. Choosing Jan was the best decision I could have taken. His guidance and representation were essential at that time for the success of my newly created business. This year, my elderly mother-in-law was misled to verbally “sign” a contract that she did not understand and certainly did not need. She recently lost her husband and during that time of grief, when she was trying to make sense of all her financial responsibility. She was also receiving a tremendous number of solicitations by phone and mail. This was very confusing for her and unfortunately, during that time she committed to a contract with one of the solicitors. I was desperate to help her and given my past experience with Jan, I decided to contact him and again, Jan came through for us. He managed to have the company cancel the contract and issue a full refund. Jan is very dependable, friendly, and enjoyable to talk to. Above all, he is very effective, and I will not hesitate to use him in the future.

Business matter
Jan efficiently dealt with a business issue. One of our old landlords had secured a garnishment against us and Jan was able to resolve the matter with an excellent settlement agreement. The process was very smooth, uncomplicated and stress free. He clearly communicated different options and possible results, his advice was accurate and realistic. Thank you Jan for all the help.

Best. Decision. Ever.
If you're reading this review, you're probably like me. For whatever reason - even if through no fault of your own, you need an experienced attorney to represent you, your family, your livelihood - he's the one. I don't think I'll ever forget when I first got served; the level of angst and anxiety was through the roof. It didn't help matters that interviewing other attorneys left me bereft of confidence as they didn't see a way to navigate my case and minimize the risk and exposure to my family. Calling Jan changed EVERYTHING. The other reviews on this site are not an exaggeration. Jan knows the law, period. But it's more than that; he is fluent in the nuances of case law and comes up with defenses that frankly far exceeded my expectations. Better still, he kept us informed along the way and was the calming voice and captain in an otherwise turbulent sea. Here's the brass tax - I would willingly wager that you will not find a finer practitioner of law or champion for his clients as Jan Michael Morris. Said simply, if ever I need an attorney to represent myself, my wife or my children in the future, he is the only call I would make and I would sleep soundly knowing that everything will be taken care of. I only hope that these few words inspire you to extend trust to him as I was once in your shoes and am forever grateful for having him represent us.

Expertise, support and understanding
Jan offered expert and pragmatic advice and great support when I needed it most. Trying to finalize a will during a pandemic and I could not be more thankful or appreciative of Jan. He was accommodating and helped figure out a way to get the job done. His personal commitment to helping me meet my need (after I had dragged my feet for months) sets him apart from the pack. Highly recommend.

The best attorney !!!
I've used different attorneys in my personal and business work, and I can tell without a doubt that Mr. Morris is the best. My case was a bit more complicated and other attorneys told me I don't have one, but Mr. Morris took our case and helped us reach a satisfactory conclusion. Thru the process, Mr. Morris showed great professionalism and knowledge. He would communicate promptly and follow up without the need to be reminded. He would provide great advice on what our options are and how to proceed. I would definitely use him again and I would certainly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an attorney.
