Mr. Morris was very, very helpful in his guidance on managing my mother's inheritance from my brother. Our issue was how to handle the funds expediently and productively in a way that got the most benefit for her during the time of her being removed from Medicai until she was re-instated. His patience in explaining the process and answering our questions very much appreciated.

You kind words, thoughts and actions were such a comfort for me at that time to finalize things. Even your hug as we left... such a blessing.
It has been some years now but I have passed your name and the firm on to several friends and my daughter Amy has done the same. You are to be commended for your work and a true asset to this firm. Once more THANK YOU for caring for a old lady and her needs... Blessings always..

My husband and I are former clients. We did not have a good experience with Mr. Morris or the firm and cannot in good faith recommend either. We experienced significant delays in returning phone calls to answer questions. When we did get return phone calls it was always from non-lawyer staff members. We did not like that once we signed a contract, Mr. Morris was not accessible to us and our needs.

I am a probate litigation attorney in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. I have had several contested probate and guardianship matters in which Mr. Morris represented the opposing party. I appreciate his experience and his professionalism. His clients are well represented.
