Phillip Wayne Morris

About me

I am a family law and criminal defense attorney serving the Galveston, Brazoria, Harris and surrounding counties.  


I am a retired police officer who understands how to navigate the legal process. I am confident in my work as I guide you through any difficulties or resistance that my arise. I have over 30 years of law enforcement experience prior to becoming an attorney.  I also serve as an adjunct instructor at the Alvin Community College where I teach topics such as constitutional law, use of force, search and seizure procedures, and others.


I look forward to helping you and your family with your family law or criminal defense matter.
