Outstanding service
Sarah Morris treated my case with the upmost respect and professionalism. She never failed to reassure me and answer any and all of my questions. If I ever felt concerned about how my case would turn out she always went over details with me to assure me things would work out for me. I absolutely would recommend Sarah to anyone who needs a trustworthy lawyer

Best Lawyer Around!
I’ve had to use several different lawyers due to different life situations and I can confidently state this, Sarah was BY FAR the best most pleasant experience of them all. She was more than competent in ALL aspects of my case. Furthermore, Sarah actually CARED about what I wanted regarding the outcome of my case and she made it happen! For any future needs of mine, THIS is the lady I will be going with!! Thank you so much Sarah!!

Best lawyer in the DFW
I had the best lawyer experience ever with Sarah. I have heard stories from other friends and family about how they felt like their lawyer was just trying to milk them for money but Sarah worked with my financial situation and always made me feel heard. She was always available to talk and worked very hard on the best strategy for my case. Her legal assistant Jeff was also just as caring and hard working. They are quite the duo. I don’t anticipate ever needing a lawyer again but if I did (or if anyone I know did) I would send them directly to Sarah and Jeff.

God bless Sarah Morris
Sarah Morris is so amazing! I consulted with her about a felony marijuana charge and retained her. She allowed me to make payments which helped a lot! We already had an offer that we were going to accept but Sarah Morris is a hard worker. She found facts in my case that got us a dismissal!!! Highly recommend, she is a true professional. God bless you Sarah Morris!

Sarah is a Life Saver
Sarah is a life saver, I spoke to a lot of Attorneys with my case in Denton County and Sarah was the one that was right for me. I was facing a lot of time on a felony DWI charge ( Eight years in Prison to be exact), Sarah was able to get my felony charge dropped down to misdemeanor with probation and minimum conditions. She stayed in constant contact with me, she was always available to answer my questions and keep me up to date on my case. She is hands down the best Attorney I have ever worked with, she is understanding, compassionate and will fight for you! If you are looking for a Attorney who cares and fights for her Client's, Sarah is the Attorney for you, it will be the best Legal Decision you can make!

Results Matter
Ms Sarah and her team took a case others wouldn’t. She worked to discover details that totally changed the complexion of this case and didn’t stop until she gained a great result. Professional, kind and respectful.

Highly Recommend
Sarah Morris and her team are passionate, diligent and fought hard to get what need to be done in my case. She went above and beyond my expectations or even what I've seen an attorney do for a client. She is very passionate, driven, and got things done. If you need or want the best representation. I only recommend her!!!!

Fights for Justice
I was referred to Sarah Morris by a reputable local Domestic Violence organization. Not only did she fight to get me justice within the system, Sarah was competent, smart, and knew how to accomplished goals quickly. I needed a compassionate and kind representative as much as one that could help me fight against what I was wrongly accused of. Sarah Morris showed me kindness and respect when I was in a difficult position. I will always be thankful for her work in helping me while I faced the scariest moment of my life. I would recommend Sarah to any friend I knew facing difficult circumstances and needing a criminal defense attorney who has a passion for defending her clients.

Savor
Mrs Morris was the best thing that could’ve happened to me in my case against Denton... she guided me through my hardest times of my life, and when I turned against her and wanted a different route... she steered in the right direction. Mrs Morris was my savor and did her job in a way that I couldn’t have had no one better to represent me... THANK YOU just doesn’t sum up how appreciative I am to have her on my side. THANK YOU MRS MORRIS

The best
I never leave reviews for anything. Sarah was my far the best legal team I have ever encountered. Best part she was given to me by the county and still did the job like I was an actual friend and not a client.

Relentless - Delivers Results!
I’ve had retained Sarah in 2 different ocasions, for FV related cases. I have dealt with several attorneys in the past, and that is almost never a too pleasant experience for anyone. Sarah is different, one of a kind - she has a level of tenacity, passion and determination ideal for a criminal defense attorney, but mostly for her clients. In both of my cases her defense extrategies proved my innoncese, saving me from becoming another victim of our unfair/unjust judicial system, and dealing with undeserved lifetime consequences. The two wins for me are great reasons to provide a good review on her, but I would be as unfair as our judicial system if I didn’t publicly recognize por her integrity, reliability, deep knowledge and commitment to obtain best possible results for me as her client. Hands down recommendation!

The Absolute Best Lawyer In DFW
Sarah is hands down one of the hardest working people I've ever met. A lot of lawyers have a reputation for taking your money and not doing much after that. Sarah couldn't be more opposite of that. Sarah takes every case like she is working for a close friend. She goes above and beyond no matter what the case is. She will do the research to make sure you are treated fairly and you have the best representation possible. In my case she brought in her Private Investigator. Who was also fantastic. She has the knowledge and resources to help you without having to send you to anyone else. She makes sure to go the extra mile to find everything needed to give you the best possible outcome. I never felt like she was in this to take the easy way out and take the plea. She seemed determined to prove my innocence regardless of the amount of work it took. My case was not an easy one to win but she always had a positive outlook and that really made a difference throughout my case. One of the main differences was that I never felt like I was talking to an out of touch attorney. She never once came off as trying to milk all of the money from me she could. She was always available and was extremely easy to talk to. She was able to work within my budget and still provide me incredible service. In any legal case you have to blindly put you life in someone else hands. It's a scary process. Sarah did everything she could to make my family and I feel comfortable and remain positive. I don't normally leave reviews but after working with Sarah I had to share my experience. You will not go wrong if you have her in your corner. Take my word for it! She is a life savor.

Beyond Grateful
Sarah Morris represented my son as a Court Appointed Attorney, and I am so grateful that she did. The results on my son's case, because of her absolute due diligence, was a success. My son and I are both very happy with the outcome. I will highly recommend Sarah to anyone who may need a criminal Attorney, because she will work hard to get the best outcome for you - court appointed or not. Sarah, thank you again for being so professional and easy to communicate with!

One of the best Attorneys in North Texas
Sarah Morris is one of the absolute best defense attorneys in North Texas. Sarah is passionate, intelligent, responsive, open minded. She fights for what she believes in. A little over a year ago she represented me in a case that was dismissed, it never made it to the Grand Jury. It is difficult facing charges, finding yourself somewhere you never dreamed you'd end up. Being arrested, posting bond, waiting to see if your case is going to trial, it's always in the back of your mind no matter how much you stay busy working or living your life. However, Sarah is the attorney you need when times are tough. I am forever grateful for her. I've had to seek her counsel more than once and I consider her a friend. She will fight for you. Hire her.

Sarah is the best lawyer..
Sarah is the best and passionate young lawyer you can meet around this area! I was under arrest for domestic violence and fell in a biggest trouble in my life. As I am a foreigner whose English is poor in this country, I was very depressed and frustrated. I also had a lot of nightmares. I just didn't know what to do and searched for a lawyer. When I had a consultation with other lawyer, he was not sure of success which I can understand. However He just scared me off saying that I am screwed. When I met Sarah for free consultation, she was not only very confident and passionate, but also very honest. I felt like she will fight for me as best as she can. The result was great. My case was dismissed without even going to trial. I don't have to worry about deportation anymore. She saved my life.

Thorough Job
I found Sarah and her firm last minute before a very important hearing for me. They put together my defense quickly and thoroughly. The whole staff was responsive, informative and supportive. I have already recommended Sarah to one associate. Bottom line, she got the job done well - and in my favor!
