I am the proud father of four children, married for more than 29 years to my wife. In my practice as a lawyer over the past 22 years, I have only represented injured people. I don't defend insurance companies and I am very passionate about my work for my clients. I am licensed to practice law in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and the District of Columbia in state and federal courts. In addition, I have handled cases in Arizona, Kansas, Illinois and Connecticut. I have tried many jury trials and non-jury trials.
Before I started my legal career, I served on active duty as an officer in the US Army. During law school and afterward, I served in the Army National Guard.
When I'm not working for my clients, I enjoy travel, reading and I play bass guitar (Rickenbacher!) in my church praise band. I enjoy rooting for my children in their many sporting activities and I love following my favorite sports teams.
My firm's website is http://MorrisCaryAndrews.com and I have a workers' compensation site, http://bamacomp.com. I also have a blog http://bamacompcom.blogspot.com/.
Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
Let me tell you about Tracy Carey. Tracy and I met in a case where we represented different clients, who unfortunately were both hurt by the same drunk driver. The Court consolidated the cases of his client and mine for the entire proceedings, including discovery, depositions, and trial. By doing so, I had the opportunity to see Tracy handle a serious injury case, from start to finish. He proved to have amazing tenacity, original strategy, and a work ethic that was was beyond impressive. It was a real pleasure to work with a professional like this. To make a long story short, at the end of closing arguments, and a week long trial, the Geneva County jury returned a $3.8 MILLION dollar verdict in favor of our joint clients. I consider it an honor to know him now, not only as a hard working, practicing attorney, but as a friend. I wholly endorse this attorney.
