Better Call Paul!
When I first got arrested, I was terrified. Calling around every lawyer and reading every review on lawyers I could find. Mr. Paul Morgan was the only lawyer I spoke to that after the conversation I felt better about my situation. I was facing a first degree felony and a state jail felony, making every night tough to go to sleep. Once I hired Mr. Morgan he told me something I’ll never forget and am extremely grateful for “We are better than our worst days”. He provided excellent legal services and was easy to talk to and stayed in communication with me regarding any updates on my cases. The end result was BOTH CASES DISMISSED! If you’re reading this, you’re obviously looking for the best representation, well let me tell you, you can stop looking, go ahead and give Mr. Morgan a call, hiring him will be the best decision you can make.

Case dismissed
Thank you Paul Morgan. First time I ever had a real lawyer on my case. I have used lawyers way more than I'd like to say. I can say this. Paul is the only lawyer I have ever had that I didn't mind paying. Worth every dollar and more. Paul did his job and did it very well. I was facing jail time on my second assault case. And with my back ground it didnt look good at all. I was willing to do probation,classes,anything as long as I didnt go to jail. I was supposed to go to court again tomorrow. Instead Mr. Morgan calls me to tell me your a free man case dismissed. You will be off of bond this afternoon. Paul took care of everything. I still cant believe he got my case dismissed. Thank you my daughter and I are truly greatfull for hiring you.

Glad i went with paul
Best choice i made was hiring Paul Morgan as my lawyer, i was facing hefty time and the courts were doing everything possible to make this hard on us. It was a 3 year nearly 4 year battle we har against the court . I trusted Paul every step of the way anything new happened In court he would let me know as soon as he left the courthouse he is very professional and well known around the courts with the district attorney’s and judges and they know him for being such a great lawyer . 10/10 would HIGHLY recommend. When theres times we need to have someone speak for your behalf in criminal courts dont pick anyone else besides Paul Morgan . He wont give up on you he will inform you every step on the way he will advice you the best roads to take . I was in such a rush to finish my case he told me to stay pacient he had everything ready to go . And finally after 4 years , 2 days ago ALL CHARGES DISMISSED . Just like that my life was finally back to normal and i couldnt have done it without Paul . I was innocent and he knew i was innocent and at the end we beat the system that was trying to have me loose all my life in prison. Dont think about it 2x Paul is the perfect lawyer for everyone .

Paul Is Your BEST Defense
I am a business owner with a lot to lose, and I thought my life was over when I got wrapped up in a criminal money laundering case. Paul Morgan guided me through this terrible ordeal with professionalism and skill. Mr. Morgan truly pushed for the best possible outcome in my case and after a 2 year fight and 7 plea offers, we outright won my case. I am over the moon with the result, but also with the solid arguments Mr. Morgan prepared and his will to fight throughout the entirety of this where another attorney may have advised me to settle for less. But not Paul Morgan, because he knows the system and has what it takes to WIN! No matter what you are dealing with, your BEST chance is the one you take on Paul Morgan.

Top notch Lawyer
Paul came to me referred from a friend. I was very skeptical at first being that there is so many Lawyers and you never what you really get. Best decision ever! He was proactive in my case kept a constant communication and updating me in the progress. Also I could reach him at anytime and was there when I had any questions. Don’t think twice you will be in great hands.

You definitely want Mr Morgan working for you
Mr. Morgan is by far the best attorney I have ever experienced. He has mastered working within the constraints of the Houston legal system, knows all of the players involved, and will develop the best game plan for your specific case. He communicates effectively and returns messages quickly. He is an effective attorney with an excellent track record and reputation. I give the highest available recommendation for Mr. Morgan, and you will want him on your side. Do not settle for any other attorney.

Thank you Mr.Morgan
After researching the top lawyers in my area, i came across Paul Morgan. I contacted Mr.Morgan and he offered me a consultation. He walked me through step-by-step how he would take care of my case and answered every question I had. After I chose him to be my attorney, he always made sure all of my concerns and questions were answered promptly. Through every step of the process he was there to update me on any changes or progress. He was able to get my case dismissed and all charges against me dropped. I cant imagine the process going any smoother than it did, and that’s thanks to Mr.Morgan’s expertise.

Quality!
From the beginning, Paul has always been communicative, trustworthy, and sharp. What Paul says, he does! He gets the job done. I went in with an interesting case, and Paul took care of every last detail. He was easy to talk to, confide in, and in the end, Paul performed a miracle. Whenever I had a question, he was always approachable and I never had an issue with him. He knows what he is doing, and I recommend him for any case!

Communicates and Represents
I contacted Mr. Morgan and he explained the entire process of my case. I was not left with unanswered questions. He showed up and fought for my rights on the day of and got every thing taken care of. He not only helped me but also my wife on finding her a defense attorney. Look no further and call Paul Morgan.

Great Lawyer!
I was referred to Paul Morgan after a friend of mine was wrongfully accused. I spoke with Paul about the incident and he walked me through the whole process with ease. Paul was very professional and prompt as he constantly kept in contact with me regarding the case and what was happening. He also worked with our budget because as we all know freedom is not free. We were able to have our case dismissed two days after meeting with Paul. Thank you again for all your help!

Man knows his stuff!
Have to admit when landing into trouble and falling into the legal system I was mortified, discouraged, scared, and concerned. It was a wave of emotions and worries along with an unimaginable stress load of which had to be carried daily along with attempting to stay on track with my own life. Hiring Paul Morgan as my attorney was the only way I was able to get a relief from all the stress and doubts. He is amazing at what he does and I couldn’t imagine not having him in my corner. Every court one goes in there with so many thoughts running wild and just an overwhelming uneasy feeling but asa he walks into the court room I am able to breathe and know that I will make it through this okay. He knows the system in and out, goes over every possible outcome with you to prepare you for the worst all while he works on getting you the best! He has made this whole process bearable and manage to give me hope and see the light at the end of the tunnel. I know with Paul Morgan as my attorney this minor setback will get resolved so I may go about my life in peace and happiness!

Glad I made the decision of a lifetime
I was in the worst position in my life. My friend kept telling me to let him Call PAUL MORGAN. I hesitated until he came to see me. The man was direct to the point, listened to my ordeal, and my life changed right then. He told me what he can and would do to make me rise. I’m free today and he kept EVERY PROMISE like a man of integrity. Paul Morgan is that guy!

Great defense attorney
I was facing a life sentence in trial simply because of my record in which the present charge was clearly not serious enough for that amount of time.(possession of a firearm) I hired Paul Morgan as my defense and not only did he get the case dismissed during pre-trial motions, but he was attentive,affordable,and respectful to my needs and concerns at all times.

After a thorough trial work-up, Paul showed up ready to try a 25-life drug case, which was ultimately dismissed on the day of trial because Paul uncovered an evidence destruction scandal by a local law enforcement agency. Additionally, Paul obtained a dismissal on a 25-life felon in possession of a firearm case, after the trial court granted his motion to quash based on double jeopardy. Paul and I now have several cases we are working up together, ranging from financial fraud cases, drugs case and evidence destruction cases we intend to try to juries.
