Great Lawyer!
Mr. Morten has been my attorney for many years. He has assisted my family with real estate litigation matter, and me personally with business formation, contract negotiations and other businesses matters. I recommend him highly.

Top notch Business Attorney
Mr. Morten and Morten Law group helped me with my business contract issues. I thought I was locked in with current contract which it wasn't benefiting me but Mr. Morten found some issues with contract wording that he was able to help me get out.. Bottom line, saved me thousands of dollars..

Real Estate Maven
I was stuck in a really unusual real-estate situation regarding the title of a commercial property I thought I owned, until I tried to sell it. The county records showed otherwise. Warren was able to get me clear title, and and ensured a close to the transaction as I wanted. his services went above and beyond.

great attorney
Mr. Morten was my attorney for purchasing my new business. He was great at the legal drafting, but more importantly to me he also understood the business side of the transaction.

Very strange experience
I was contacting attorneys to find one to asist me with a deadline driven court matter. Warren Morten emailed me and said he could help me. I emailed him a copy of my court matter and waited for him to contact me to discuss it. After not hearing from him, I called him. He said he would call me back, but didn't. I again called him the next day, he said that he would call me back in ten to fifteen minnutes. I emailed several supporting documents so that Warren could get some history. He sent an email saying we needed to discuss my legal matter. After that I could not get him to call me back or anything. Weird.
