KNOWLEDGEABLE
Everyone was helpful and explained in detail every aspect of the Trust. I never felt rushed or that any question was a dumb one. All staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I LOVE the way they handle everything for me. They made this an easy way to handle my affairs.

Professional and thorough
I've worked with the Ron Morton team as both an executor of a will and to have wills drawn up for my wife and myself. I've found the team flawless and very professional, thorough and understanding. I felt very comfortable with their manner and confident in their expertise.

Excellent, Detailed, Personable
My wife and I consulted with lawyer friends and they recommended Ron highly. After an initial session we knew why. Ron knows his field of Elder law and was able to communicate with us in a manner that made us feel confident in his recommendations and our decisions.

Morton Law Firm - Excellent!
My husband and I hired Mr. Morton to review and update wills and trusts and assist with estate planning. We were long overdue for this but he has made a daunting task doable. Mr. Morton listens to what we would like to do with our resources and then works to find a way to make that happen. He is extremely knowledgeable, creative and patient. His associate and staff are friendly and always courteous. Working with Mr. Morton and those in his office has been a pleasant experience all around.

Morton Law Firm
Several of our family members who had hired Morton law firm recommended them to write our will and trust. Excellent service. All bases were covered and we would highly recommend this law firm. The fact that they take care of 95% of all the paperwork was so stress free. We were so pleased with the thoroughness of the attorney, the competent and timely manner of their staff. We highly recommend their services.

The Best
My husband died of cancer, but his death was unexpected. Mr. Morton was able to take my complicated financial situation, sort it out quickly, and created an estate plan which addressed my every concern. He was thoughtful, attentive, professional, and demonstrated a high level of knowledge and competence. In the midst of a difficult situation, he was a rock of wisdom, support, and good judgment.

Review of Ronald Morton Law Firm
I first met Mr. Morton after the sudden and unexpected death of my father, when my mother sought his advice regarding her financial affairs. It was then that I realized he truly was concerned about providing the best possible advice to his clients. My mother was pleased with his advice and the legal work he did for her. Since then my husband and I have sought his counsel in estate planning for our affairs. We were satisfied with his recommendations and the resulting documents he created for us. I have also found the work of Mr. Morton's staff to be accurate and timely. Everyone was very helpful. As a result, I have recommended with hesitation Mr. Morton to several family and friends.

Estate Planning
Mr. Morton and his entire staff made us feel comfortable and at ease during every encounter. They were very professional, informative, and understanding while discussing options available in our estate planning. Now that we have completed all of the many aspects of this effort we feel that we have made the best, well-informed decisions and that their service was well worth their fee.

Our visit
We had the best possible experience. We were very very happy with the results.

Estate Planning
During our 15-minute initial consultation, Mr. Morton was able to answer several of my questions regarding estate planning for my 87-year-old mother. Based on information provided during that consultation, mother decided to schedule a meeting with Mr. Morton. We brought the completed questionnaire and the requested documents. Mr. Morton's mannerisms and personality are very well-suited to working with older clients. He listened to mother's concerns and her goals for estate planning. Then he presented us the options available to her to accomplish her goals and address her concerns. When asked, he made a recommendation regarding the best option given mother's goals and concerns. Mother was very well satisfied with Mr. Morton's work and felt that the price charged was more than fair for the amount of work accomplished and the number of documents produced. I would highly recommend Mr. Morton as an estate planner and especially in the area of matters of the elderly. I worked for 29 years for the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Mississippi and have had contact with too many attorneys to count. I feel that my assessment of Mr. Morton's abilities is accurate and fair.

Excellent service providing peace of mind for future of our family.
Attended a free seminar on estate planning and was very impressed with thorough knowledge shared. Had complete plan for living trusts drawn for our blended family that will satisfy best interests of all. Very professional and friendly staff that we highly recommend! It is a comfort to know future provision is in place with very competent staff, including assistance of other legal partners if necessary.

Review of Ronald C. Morton
We found Ronald C. Morton to be very informative and knowledgeable in preparing our trust. He was professional as was his office staff. Without hesitation, he answered all of our questions and never exhibited any impatience. He was eager to address all of our concerns and made us confident in our decisions.

Formulated Family and Estate Trust Matters
Mr. Morton has proven to be of superlative value to my wife and me as we endeavored to put all our estate matters into some sort of proper and legal array. We were in need of MUCH counselling and the information that Mr. Morton provided enabled us to assemble and dispose of all the necessary tasks in good order. We have great appreciation for the extreme patience that Mr. Morton demonstrated when we needed so much minute detail explained. His Godly character was evident during the entire time that we were in conference with him, and he never left any indication of impatience with us at any time. His staff was also warm and friendly, responding knowledgably to our every need. It will certainly be our pleasure to recommend him to anyone who would desire complete and accurate legal instruments developed with an attorney who can deliver it all timely and with great confidence.

Legal Services to include Trusts, Wills and Veteran's Benefits.
Our family has worked extensively with Ron Morton and his legal team in developing and instituting a plan for our future. He has worked diligently on all issues and has always had time for discussions on matters as they arose. He has been correct, courteous, extremely knowledgeable (especially on VA Benefits) and has shown us nothing but the finest coutesy and integrity. Unsurpassed in his knowledge of Elder Law, we give our strongest possible recommendation to Ron Morton and his Law Firm.

Mr. Morton handled the Estate planning for my parents. This can usually be a very difficult time but much needed time to prepare for the future. He was very knowledgeable and he took his time to explain and answer any question my parents or I may have had. Mr. Morton gave advice when needed and really showed how much he enjoys helping people. His staff was very professional and helpful during this process. I would greatly recommend his service. Thank you Mr. Morton for being there and taking care of our needs.
