I had never even had a detention, but through a relationship, wound up in legal trouble under the skeleton framework of the Michigan Medical Marihauna law and the interpretation of law enforcement. I was charged with 2 felonies for Manufacturing with Intent to Deliver. I knew nothing about the legal system and had no experience with qualifying an attorney. Barton responded to me after 9 pm on a Friday after submitting an online inquiry. He met me on a Sunday afternoon at his office. Although I must have spoken to six or more criminal defense attorneys during the time prior to our meeting, what I liked was that he wasn't establishing a relationship by promising rainbows. He was, perhaps, conservative, about the outcome he could bring. He reiterated that sentiment at our meeting. I could discern that he wanted me to be prepared and realistic about the outcome. I appreciated that from the start and throughout the entire process. Barton oversaw my joint case with a co-defendant whom he directly represented, while an associate represented myself. In my numerous interactions with Barton, I can attest to his commitment to easing his client's minds by being knowledgeable, prepared, and personable. Knowing that I would be early, but that Barton would be earlier, helped me breathe a little easier day after day. Knowing he had already spoken to the Clerk and Prosecutor, made me more confident. Having him take the extra time before going into the court room to brief me on what was about to happen, made a foreign experience seem less frightening. Having him reassure me that I would not go to jail time after time, made me feel that in the end it would all be ok. I believed Barton. Because he never lied and never promised rainbows, only conservative reality. The outcome: 2 misdeanors for possession, which can be expunged in 5 years, as a plea deal. I declined the initial deal of 1 felony, as Barton was confident I could get better in a trial. I was confident in Barton, so I agreed and the Prosecution eventually offered the latter. I was always happy to see Barton waiting outside the courtroom and I'm certain that is the feeling he illicits for all of his clients. As a sidenote, what Barton told me to expect from our first meeting: no jail time, fines, and misdemeanor (s). He delivered.

My experience with Barton was fantastic. He delivered exactly what he said he would. I was coming from out of state and Barton was able to have my entire legal process shortened down to one day. He also had my charges swapped for lesser ones and was very informative the entire time.

Mr. Morris did a great job for me! He was knowledgeable, easy to talk to and, more importantly, easy to understand. I have a general problem with being led blindly through any process let alone a legal one. Barton guided me through the process while making it all make sense. He has also offered to make himself available to answer questions after the fact. I am "absolutely satisfied" with his service and wouldn't hesitate to go to him again.

Our family already retained another attorney, I mean I was scouting for the top attorneys everywhere because 1. we never have been in any legal trouble and 2. this was all new to us. At any rate, he had responded while I was retaining another attorney. But it was the way that he said.."good luck, and if you need me I am still here." It made me realize immediately that he cared regardless if we retained him or not. And that means a whole lot.

Barton Morris represented me for my second drunk driving. I wish I hired him for my first. He was honest about what he could do. He then worked really hard on the case and it obviously paid off. He convinced my jury to disregard a .14 blood test and that would have never had happened without him. His knowledge about the case was very impressive . It was obvious that he was an expert DUI specialist defense lawyer.

Mr. Barton Morris is hands down the most Professional, Empathetic, Generous Lawyer I have ever dealt with. He was representing my Fiance on a case that was his second offense (wont bore anybody with details) and came to court house and within 1 hour the case was dismissed....We have Mr. Morris to thank for essentially saving our future , my fiance was looking at serving 1 year and would have lost his full-time job and his freedom ...I would HIGHLY recomend this lawyer to anyone !!! Thank you Mr. Morris !!!!!

I was charged with a felony drug case and misdemeanor drug case. I had never been in this type of serious trouble with the law before. After my arrest I researched different criminal attorneys, and Mr. Morris' name kept showing up at the top of my lists. As soon as I met with him, I knew he was the man for the job. He has confidence, and he knows how to ask the right questions. After hiring Mr. Morris he IMMEDIATELY went to work on my cases. Although the legal process was slow and drawn out, he kept me informed throughout this ordeal in a very timely manner. He was always on time for court hearings, and his office staff kept me informed of any changes to these hearings. Instead of just pleading guilty to the charges, he worked very hard to get my felony charge dropped. He also made sure there was no jail time which is important in any criminal case. My misdemeanor case was also negotiated to a much lesser charge. I hope I never have to go through any incident like this again, but I know if I do, I am in great hands with Mr. Morris. If anyone is in any type of criminal trouble, I highly recommend Barton W. Morris, Jr. He is honest, hardworking and gets the job done.

Barton is a very professional and extremely accurate about the law when it comes to driver license restoration. All of the advice and recommendations that were given by Barton were right on the mark and led to me receiving my full license restoration. I do not believe that I would have received my license back had I been represented by another attorney.

Barton Morris is the best lawyer I have ever been represented by! Not only did he retrieve my license, he did it with the most incredible,genuine knowledge and expertise! From the first meeting I felt as though Barton was sincerely involved and willing to do what was needed to win my case! I can't praise Barton enough, he took a very uncomfortable situation and completely kept my mind at ease! Anybody in need of legal representation should call Barton Morris! You will be happy you did.

Mr. Morris, Jr. represented me for the license restoration process. Throughout the process he guided me competently and thoroughly and was confident that he would succeed in getting my license restored. He ensured that all document that were to be submitted were accurate and consistent with what he knew the DLAD required. At the hearing he was prepared and articulate. I fully believe that had I attempted this process without his guidance I would not have been successful. I was, in fact awarded driving privileges again and look forward to consulting him again in a year when I can apply for full restoration of my license. I have full confidence that he will handle my case with the same thoroughness and attention to detail.
