25 Years of sucessful representation.
I have worked with Dennis Morrison continuously since 1990 in my then 40 year capacity as the Chief Lending Officer of a major commercial bank in Central Ohio followed as the Director of Asset Management for a major Midwest real estate development and management company. Dennis successfully handled dozens of creditor rights cases each year for me and my various banking staff members. Dennis also represented our bank in many major loan documentation and closings transactions and provided counsel for numerous real estate related transactions. Most recently Dennis was able to assist in an amicable conclusion, on a large mechanic lien case, which was filed without cause, keeping the situation out of the court system. I have always found Denis to be reliable, engaged, accessible and highly competent in any legal work he was engaged for. For these reasons, I have recommended Dennis to other clients of mine over the years and will continue to do so in the future.

Commercial loan Workout
I have utilized the services of Mr. Morrison on several Commercial Loan Workout situations, some complex and others single purpose entities in various stages of distress and utilizing various strategies, Retain, Exit, or Liquidate. Dennis understands the processes and works effectively, efficiently, and responsively to obtain the desired result. He is fully capable of handling these credit exposures from cradle to grave and in all cases the results achieved were more than satisfactory for the Bank.

General practice Attorney | Mar 10
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have worked with Dennis for over 25 years. I wish every attorney was like Dennis. He is very intelligent, humble and easy to work with. Dennis shows every attorney and client the upmost respect. He is always prepared and very thorough, but at the same time takes a common sense approach to a case while being mindful of the associated cost to the client. As a lawyer, if I needed representation Dennis would be the first call I make. I have referred a few individuals to Dennis. Each person has advised that their experience with Dennis was very, very positive. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dennis."
Litigation Attorney | Mar 10
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Our case involved a complex piece of litigation that went up and down on appeal twice. It required constant attention and steady, deliberate management. I would not have trusted anyone else. Dennis is highly recommended."
