One of the best lawyers in town
Deb was very available very knowledgeable and took the time to explain things and options. She’s someone who builds a relationship and doesn’t just treat you like a number. I highly recommend her

Self help advice
I came to Deborah for help in filing a custody modification representing myself. She has given amazing advice and pointed me in the right direction of forms I need as trying to research the information yourself is not easy at all.

The Dedication of Deb
I was up against a wall going through my divorce and I needed the best to represent me. I was lost, depressed and had no clue where to begin. I needed out fast for my physical & mental safety during the covid period. Deb met with me and provided the expectations. She was polite, professional and most of all sensitive to my situation! During several hearings from requesting a protection order, financial hearing and violation of protection order to the final hearing, Deb kept me hopeful and guided me every step of the way! It was an uphill battle however Deb has the tools, knowledge, expertise and experience to represent her clients well! She is a rare jewel in today's world with her diligence and integrity. When I cried (way more than I thought) and wanted to give up, that was not an option for Deb. We stood together in the fight and survived with an uncommon strength and empowered outcome! We won the war and moreover kept the faith! I highly recommend Deb for your legal needs. She will get it done!

Response from Deborah Morris May 20, 2024
Thank you so much for the beautiful words. It is times like these when I do believe an attorney must carry the load for the client, particularly when safety is a concern and the client is mentally drained. Take care and continue to keep the faith!

"I endorse this lawyer. Deb is a trustworthy lawyer who has innovative and affordable ways to represent her clients successfully."
Family Attorney | Jan 04
Relationship: Co-worker
"Deb is an excellent attorney who never loses sight of her job - which is to serve her clients. Too many attorneys view a family law case as an opportunity to create conflict. Deb's goal is to identify the issues, and work towards resolution in a way that gives her client the best opportunity to move forward. I've worked both with and against her through the years, and am convinced her clients are lucky to have her in her corner."
