Work comp case
The firm was fantastic. From paralegals to the attorney. Great communication during the entire process.
Response from Britton Morrell February 17, 2021
Thank you so much! Our paralegals really get all of our ducks in a row! I will let them know about your kind words! Thank you for trusting us with your serious work injury.

You Can't Go Wrong
I strongly recommend Michael Kaplan of Kaplan Morrell, for any workers compensation issue. The company I was involved with put forward an incredibly low settlement offer, and Mr. Kaplan, recognizing this, went to work to get a fair settlement. The settlement he negotiated was 4 times more than their original offer, and I couldn’t be more pleased. He and his assistant, Tammy, are client focused and provide superb service. John W.

Michael Kaplan is Awesome!!!
I was referred to Michael Kaplan for an injury I sustained at work back in March. From the first phone call I had with Tammy, Michael's Senior Paralegal, I felt as though all my needs and concerns regarding my injury were of the upmost importance. Both Michael and Tammy operated very professionally and with the highest integrity, with concerns for not only my physical injury, but also my mental well being. They kept me well informed each step of the way, making sure I understood everything that would be happening throughout my case. Michael was able to settle my case in what I felt was a very short amount of time, so I could move on with my life. I highly recommend Michael Kaplan for any Worker's Comp claim you may face!

Fierce Advocates
I tried to work my way through the work comp system for several years. After receiving a "you are not our problem anymore" letter and a small check, I contacted Mr. Kaplan. He assured me that I was, in fact, getting taken advantage of and agreed to take on my case. Mr. Kaplan and Tammy are very knowledgeable, kind, and thorough. They are fierce advocates for their clients. They negotiated a settlement much higher that the original offering and I couldn't be happier.

Gumption!
Gumption defined as shrewd or spirited initiative and resourcefulness. Britton Morrell should be the picture next to this definition. He went up and above to help me settle my case. There were times when the case felt like it was going off the rails, Britton would circle the wagons and get us right back on track. He is courageous, clever and if Law was chess he would be Bobby Fischer. I cannot thank him enough.

Excellent Attorney
I contacted Mr. Morrell regarding a worker's comp claim made by our company's former worker. He explained that he doesn't represent employers, but he spent almost an hour offering advice on how we should proceed. He was very personable, friendly and patient as I explained the situation fully. I can not stress strongly enough how invaluable this was! In this day and age, it is extremely rare to find someone who is willing to offer professional help knowing they will receive no compensation for it. I would recommend Britton to anyone who needs legal representation in his area of law.

My Work Comp Case
Britton Morrell is wonderful! He always fought for me, even when we thought there was no help. He made sure I received all the medical treatment I needed and received my total temporary disability just as I should have. He never got frustrated or upset with me, even when I was frustrated. He always acted as a professional and for that I am forever grateful. Thank you for all that you have done, I appreciate both Britton and the staff, they are all amazing!!

Great workman's comp lawyer
We hired Mr. Morrell for a workman' s comp injury that happened in 2015. He has spent 2 years working on my case and even helped me transition to social security disability, which was approved on the first attempt. I am grateful for his services and for the firm for making me a priority. I would highly recommend them.

Professional and Welcoming
I reached out to Britton for professional feedback, and I was so impressed that he made me a priority and discussed his practice with me. He fit me into his busy schedule for a long talk, despite knowing I wouldn’t even be a client. His commitment to the law, his fellow practitioners, and his community was evident in his willingness to counsel me. Now that I know that Britton is so cordial and navigates the legal scene so effectively, I look forward to working with him in the future.

Workers compensation Attorney | Apr 27
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Britton is, simply put, one of the few lawyers I would trust with my own claim if I suffered a Workers' Compensation injury. The usual compliments are accurate, but not nearly sufficient to describe what Britton does in his calling as an attorney for injured workers. If you have been injured and are lucky enough to have Britton accept your case, you'll be taken care of to the fullest extent."
Workers compensation Attorney | Aug 25
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I've known Mr. Morrell professionally and personally for many years. He is extremely thorough and competent and takes great pains to explain the process to those unfortunate enough to need to navigate it. I give him my highest endorsement."
