Professional
Keith was very professional and supportive through the whole process. He was very agressive with my case and did not back down. I could tell he wanted what was right. Thank you Keith and i will never forget what you did for me and my family.

You want this guy in your corner!
Keith and team were exceptional throughout our process of contesting a will. With their guidance, we reached a speedy and solid settlement. They made the entire process as painless as possible and were fun to work with. He's a heavy hitter and we loved having him at our side.
Response from Keith Morris October 29, 2021

super person
The legal world is so stressful. Littered with awful people who are out for themselves and their bank account. I was in distress and looking for a person who would help me. Keith picked up the phone while he was moving from his home. We all know how much fun moving houses is. He spoke with me, calmed me down, told me he would help and he did. He researched my problem, consulted another expert just for a second opinion, and responded to me with the answers I needed. He is a SUPER PERSON. Thank you, Keith, I truly appreciate you.

Amazing Attorney - Litigation Matter
Keith is one of the finest and technically proficient lawyers I have ever met. He represented me in a defamation case and successfully settled the case in my favor. He is aggressive in court room while remaining respectful and compassionate to other lawyers and his clients. I highly recommend him for your litigation matters.

Texas Guardianship Case 2016
Keith Morris is most technically proficient attorney, in Texas Law, that I know. I have testified in hundreds of criminal cases as an Investigator for the State of Texas and as an expert witness. Keith would be the one attorney I hope I never set on the opposite side of the table against. Keith handled our case with both dignity and professionalism that is always needed in a disputed guardianship case. Keith was the one who made it all work in the end. My family was very fortunate to have Keith represent us.

Exceptional Representation
Mr. Morris and Mrs. Jenkins represented me in a complicated and nasty probate matter. Both were OUTSTANDING! Compassionate, no-nonsense, and fair. I am a paralegal and must say that Mr. Morris and Mrs. Jenkins are in the top .5 of the 1% of excellent lawyers.

Keith Was Easy to Reach
Keith was easy to reach and had a lot of knowledge about estate planning. He helped me and my family with our wills and helped set up trusts for my kids. Made everything very easy.

I can not thank Mr. Morris enough for the hard work
I can not thank Mr. Morris enough for the hard work he put in to my very complicated trust litigation. He will go above and beyond to make sure his clients are taken care of while still staying inside of the law.

Keith Made The Probate Process as Painless as Possible
Keith made the probate process as painless as possible. There were some complicated circumstances that he had to deal with.
Posted by James | December 7, 2014
I Was Happy With The Outcome of My Case
I could not have asked for better representation than Keith. He is very professional, priced fairly for the services he offers and is clearly an expert in estate law. I was happy with the outcome of my case.
Posted by Jeremy | December 5, 2014
Will use again.
Keith Morris helped me with guardianship issues for my mother. She was from out of state and moved here so we had to quickly get things transferred. Keith was very professional helped explain my options. I was dealing with transferring many other things on her behalf and the legal side of things completely overwhelmed me when I tried to learn about it on my own. Keith was a real time saver and stress reducer for me!

Knowledgeable and Carries Through with What He Says
I hired JMK for legal services relative to litigation contesting my father's will. Keith proved to have just the level of aggressiveness I was looking for in a lawyer. He is very knowledgeable and carries through with what he says he will do in a timely manner. I would recommend Keith highly.

Helpful and Trustworthy Attorney
I was so happy that I chose Keith Morris to help me with a probate litigation issue that I had. I was really sad that I even had to hire an attorney to deal with parts of my family when my dad died but he really helped me get through the process and was SO knowledgeable on everything that was going on. I really owe him and the rest of the people at his firm a BIG thank you.
