I am a trial lawyer. For 29 years, I have faced imposing odds and consistently succeeded in winning my client's battles. My most signficant verdict was a $27 million dollar verdict in the Hormone Replacement MDL which was affirmed on appeal all the way through the U.S. Supreme Court. I am board certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. I am AV Rated by Martindale Hubbell. I am licensed in California, Texas, Pennsylvania, New York and Colorado. I currently reside in Studio City, CA and look forward to trying my next case for you.

Rating Jim Morris
Jim Morris was, and I am sure is, a wonderful person, professional trial lawyer, with the ability to communicate information to the lay person, which in our case, was done perfectly. Regarding his abilities as a lawyer in our trial, which was conducted as a bell weather case, he excelled against very long odds, but his communication skills won over a jury and we received victory. I cannot suggest enough that anyone in Jim's care, will be represented by a sensitive, intelligent, and most important, a gifted attorney. Steve and Merle Simon
