A True Professional
Mr. Morrison handled our family estate planning like a true professional. We used his services on several occasions. Any questions we had he knew the answers without hesitation, and made suggestions based on our needs to help make our decisions much easier. One of the things I like most about him is how reliable he is. He always makes time to meet with us at our convenience. And in the end, Mr. Morrison always let's us know that he is there for us if we have any questions.

A very personable and honest attorney
I’ve been knowing Mr. Morrison for over a decade. He has always been professional but just as importantly, knowledgeable and approachable. He has helped my business partners and I navigate a nasty lawsuit, assisted with properly setting up our estates, and is now in the process of helping my mother do the same. I can, with a good heart, highly recommend Mr. Morrison for your estate planning, as well as just having a good guy on your side in difficult times.
