Menacing
I am proud to say that she was able to get my case dismissed with no court costs. I was able to maintain my clean record. The judge saw through the lies . I am very happy with the outcome and her services. I will recommend her to anyone. Thanks Morgan for believing in my innocence and fighting for me.

Couldn't be more impressed by Morgan
I highly recommend utilizing Morgan for an attorney. She had my best interests in mind the entire time and fought for them endlessly. She was extremely professional, responsive, and attentive to any questions I had through the duration of my case. I can't say enough good things about her.

She’s the best!
The first conversation I had with Ms.Caruso had me excited to work with her. She’s very knowledgeable and passionate in that court room, she saved my life. I was facing 20+ years for a violent felony case, I was able to leave on probation for a lessor charge because of her! Thank you for fighting for me and my freedom. Best Attorney Ever!

The best lawyer in Cleveland
Best lawyer ever! I retained her services after my other lawyer told me I had no chance of beating the case. She beat it in 1/4 of the time that the other one had. She saved my life! Very happy with her work.

She’s great!
My mother found Morgan online after calling around and not being able to reach anyone. She was the only one who answered her phone, ready, and willing to work. I was facing an assault charge and she promised me I was in good hands. I walked away with a dismissed case, nothing on my record, and no court costs. She’s legit.

Best lawyer I've ever hired
Literally got me out of going to jail on a probation violation when my p.o and the judge were already set on sending me to jail. I got extended probation and fines but definitely better than the alternative and extremely satisfied with her work.

Excellent attorney, quite professional and knowledgeable
My wife and I have been associated with Morgan Caruso for a number of years and find her to be an exceptional attorney. She has resolved several issues for us and done so with great skill and compassion. Morgan is willing to take as much time as possible to insure the best service available. We have found no question is too insignificant to ask and have complete confidence in Morgan's ability to get the job done. If we are in need of any assistance we know Morgan will make the time to handle our situation. My wife and I highly recommend Morgan Caruso to anyone seeking legal representation.

Charges Dropped
Morgan took care of me and treated me like family during a rough time in my life. I really felt like she cared about me as a person, not just as a client. she was very transparent with me about all the possible outcomes and didn't sugar coat anything. she made sure I understood everything and in the end, she was a lifesaver. I can't promise that your outcome will be as amazing as mine but I can promise she will work tirelessly to see you through.

She gets the job done
BEST CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER!!! I would recommend her to anyone. She'll treat you like family and do anything necessary to achieve her goals no matter what obstacles may fall in the way. She fears no one. She's smart, smooth, and people love her everywhere she goes.. but she's not just out to make friends, she gets the job done. Morgan is everything an attorney should be and more.

BEST ATTORNEY EVER!!!
There’s several attorneys that can assist when someone is in need , but what is hard to find , is an attorney that actually cares , who stands up for her clients with no worry , and an attorney that wants to see you win ! If it wasn’t for Morgan , I wouldn’t be where I am today . She has gotten me out of several different cases that were serious , yet left out with no jail time !!! If my friends or family ever needed an attorney I would recommend Morgan to anyone and everyone who wants and needs someone who will fight for them , bc Morgan does just that. I’ll never go for another attorney but her , thanks Morgan !

Awesome Attorney
I can't thank Morgan enough. I was in a tight legal situation and I was lucky to find her. She saw me last minute and took full control of my case and told me to give all my stress and anxiety to her and I can call her at anytime. After being gouged in the past by other attorneys, Morgan's rates are exceptionally reasonable and her knowledge of my case in such a short time. Again, I can't thank Morgan enough!
