About Reece

Learn Reece’s areas of practice.

TAX SMART. BUSINESS SAVVY. TRUST WORTHY.

Growing up around my father's law office, he never told me that I had to be a lawyer. Instead, he introduced me to a potpourri of bank presidents, big business executives, bookies, brain surgeons, car dealers, chiropractors, circus owners, doctors, dentists, farmers, Harlem Globetrotters, horse breeders, house wives, judges, machine shop owners, ministers, movie producers, oil and gas executives, orthodontists, petroleum engineers, plumbers, ranchers, restaurant owners, rocket scientists, salesmen, small business owners, video game developers, welders, winemakers, and zookeepers - just to name a few. But I soon understood the most important thing of all - they were people that just needed help.

For me, I realized that I enjoyed the variety of the challenges - "eating at the buffet" - since no two days were ever the same. And since I was really good at math and enjoyed puzzles, I decided to prepare myself for a such a career. I decided to become a lawyer.

After graduating from law school in 1991, I joined my father's firm. I did take a brief sabbatical in 1992-1993 to work for the Office of the Governor for the State of Oklahoma. While serving as the Director of Planning & Management Analysis, I designed the very first PC network implemented in the Governor's office. Our efforts also include the installation of Lotus Notes which was featured in a USA Today article in 1993.

As my father neared retirement, I decided to take my own advice and use a limited liability company. So, I started my own law firm and founded Morrel Law PLLC in August 2016.

So, how can I help you and your family today?

P.S. I love my job!

Treats you like family
I can not say enough great things about Reece Morrel. My father, who was a proud veteran and Osage Indian, passed away and we are all out of state. My sister's and I were really struggling, floundering around trying to figure out where to start without a will. Reece was not only unbelievably kind, patient, compassionate and thorough, but so knowledgeable in probate, estate planning, assistance with Osage headrights and took the time to guide us through the steps of a complicated family dynamic with a lot of moving parts. He knew exactly what to do, covered all our bases, I don't know what we would've done without him and his vast experience and expertise. In an increasingly digital world, he treats you like family. I think our dad had a hand in guiding us to Reece and we are forever grateful for him and his help. He was a bright spot in a very difficult time. Highly recommend.

Trustworthy
Reece reviewed my matter and prepared all the necessary documentation to finalize my business deal. He truly has a servant heart and it was a wonderful overall experience. Will be going back to him for estate planning in the near future.

Tax and Small Business Expert
I have know Reece for over 20 years. During this time he has helped me with a variety of issues including taxes, business law, and QuickBooks. His breadth of knowledge on a variety of topics is impressive and most helpful for the small business owner. He is consummate professional and great friend.

Excellent Business Contract advisor
Our organization needed some guidance on some contracts we were provided to better understand our business position. We hired Reece B. Morrel to begin the daunting task of unraveling what would have been a grievous situation had we not decided to use his services. What time it took his firm to review and summarize the paperwork we submitted saved our organization tens of thousands of dollars in erroneous expense. His customer service is reliable and his staff is professional and easy to work with. We are so glad we hired him as our attorney.

Excellent Attorney with excellent counsel and advice.
Reece Morrel has been and continues to be my personal attorney for the past 2 decades. He has performed my yearly tax preparation, both Federal Income tax return and Oklahoma Income Tax Return. I have used Reece’s expertise in creating my Personal Will. While preparing documentation to direct my heirs about my assets, Reece included my Advanced Directives for Health Care. This will free my heirs from having to make difficult decisions about their loved one. Reece was very polite in asking me personal questions, very sincere in his advice on how to handle various legal issues in a precise and quick manner, and last, quick to complete his work and return it to me for review and approval. Over the years, Reece has instructed me on the use of QuickBooks in my family business. He helped me set up the initial entries and was continually available to answer my questions as I learned more about the use of the software.

Job well done.
After my husband's retirement, Reece Jr. updated all of our estate planning documents - living wills, health care directives, powers-of-attorney, wills, and revocable trust. He has also done our income tax returns for several years as we made our transition from active employment to retirement. He has been of great help, assistance and information. Thank you for taking such great care of us!

One of the Good Guys
Reece knows his stuff. He handled the sale of my business, advised me on estate matters, and even helped me out of a really bad timeshare. And when you are with Reece, you don't feel like the clock is running. He is fair, quick, and worth every penny.

Excellent Attorney
We had a great experience working with Reece on our Estate Planning and Living Will. His knowledge and expertise coupled with his ability to simplify the legal jargon helped us plan our estate. Reece is not pushy like some attorneys but rather takes time to listen to your questions and concerns and answers them in a professional and sincere manner. I would highly recommend Reece for all of your legal needs.
