Great Lawfirm
I hired Mr Morris and his team to help guide me in the right direction with a child custody modification. Highly recommended law firm! I appreciate everything that was done with my case. Both of you are very knowledgeable and had me in your best interest. Thank you once again.

Divorce
When I hired Mr. Morris I wasn't too sure what I was going to happen if I was going to stay in the same path in my life or was I going to be able to make a change for better. After consulting with him he not only guaranted me my children but he promised to fight for what was mine in my divorce. Not only am I thankful but I am blessed to have found a wise lawyer to fight in my corner. For years I dealt with the same nonsense and heart ache facing life with depression and anxiety looks didn't really matter to me I felt dead. After everything was said and done I no longer feel any of that he and his firm fought for my children and I and now we are much happier. Thank you for all you have done.

Compassionate caring
Phillip Morris represented me for My Modification for child custody. He was the most honest and caring attorney I have ever met. Even though we didn’t win, he was very concerned with how I was doing and checked on me later that evening and during the week. Mr. Phillips has what other attorneys lack compassion and a vested interest in your case. Mr. Phillips staff was extremely helpful in walking me though all the paperwork and explaining what was needed from me. Thank you Lacey Richards Attny. I would recommend him highly for any of your legal needs. Thank you Mr. Phillips

"Top Notch Lawyer"
Mr. Morris and his staff helped me through a back child support/insurance dilemma. They are very professional and easy to contact. I would refer my family and friends to Mr. Morris and his team. Thanks for making this long hard road end on a better note then it started out.

Better Than I Anticipated
I recently hired Mr. Morris to help me with a child support case involving a very vindictive ex wife and he exceeded expectations. Never had I had a lawyer so thorough and involved in my case on a personal level to where not only were my wants taken care of but I wound up coming out of it better than I could have imagined. I will always go back if I have any further issues and wouldn't think of hiring anyone else. If you have a difficult case I highly recommend him.

Awesome Divorce Lawyer
I hired a lawyer, that did nothing but take my money and want more, but I found Phillip and was instantly impressed and knew he would be able to handle my case. The communication between him and his office staff was excellent and the case was handled quickly and within the amount he said.

Awesome, compassionate lawyer
I retained Mr. Morris to help me with my difficult divorce case. I am very grateful for his honesty, high moral character, and his down to earth personality. He made a horrendous time in my life a lot easier. Mr. Morris was up front, professional, and worked diligently to bring resolution in a very difficult situation. He is also very knowledgeable of the law and worked tirelessly, negotiating on my behalf. Should the need arise, I’d use him again. I would highly recommend Mr. Morris to others, and have already done so.

Great lawyer!
Mr. Morris helped modify my custody and child support orders. It was a pretty messed up situation and I was worried it wouldn't work out. Phillip eased my fears time and time again by my educating me on how the process and laws work. I am very grateful to have had such a kind, patient, and knowledgeable lawyer. He did exactly what I needed him to do!

Divorce Attorney
I hired Mr. Morris to represent me in my divorce case. I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Mr Morris and his staff are excellent to work work with and always get back to you in a timely manner, I even had to call him on a weekend with an emergency issue. If you are looking for the best attorney then look no further, he is straight forward with the divorce process, was on time, and prepared. His legal fees are excellent and he was very down to earth,he made me feel comfortable from day one and that is exactly what I was looking for. I was never promised anything and I actually ended up with more than I had expected he knows what he's doing and I would recommend him to everyone I know.

Excellent Attorney
We hired Mr. Morris for 2 separate cases. Both handled quickly, quietly & won both. At our 1st consultation he told us he have our son back before the holidays (3 weeks away) & he made true to that word. I called him with less than 24 hrs notice of a court hearing before "officially" hiring him, he said he could be there he was & my family will be forever greatful. I've told several people if they need something done hire Mr. Morris. I would recommend him to anyone & will definitely use him again if needed..

Satisfied Client
I hired Mr. Morris to represent me in my divorce case. I was very pleased with his services. He is down to earth and as honest and upfront as they come.

Seasoned Attorney with a direct approach
Mr. Morris has a diverse and strong background in the legal process from his experience as a law enforcement officer to his years of experience as a lawyer. After my consultation with him, I could tell he was well versed in family law and would represent me well. Both he and his staff were able to clearly describe the whole court process to me from discovery to mediation to court preparation and court. He never over promised and his best guess on what the judge would decide was right on the mark. His dedication to my case and his thoroughness was evident when the case went to trial. He was well prepared, well spoken and presented all the facts throughly. He was quick to prevent any pitfalls put out by opposing council and was able to keep everything in court running on target. I would hire him again in a heartbeat, but hopefully I won't need to.

Phillip Made things go smoothly
Phillip Morris handled both a criminal case and a custody case for me. Phillip and his staff worked tirelessly and helped me through every set of the process. I wasn't very familiar with the legal system or with how the legal system worked. Phillip and his staff guided me through the murky waters of the court system. They made sure I understood everything that was going on and every offer that was presented. Phillip helped me to get the best deal possible in the criminal case, one that I was happy with. In my custody case Phillip went the extra mile and did everything possible to maximize the amount of time I get with my son. Phillip wasn't out just get a paycheck, he actually cares about his clients and wants the best for them. I would recommend Phillip Morris to anyone, because they will get a great lawyer.
