The entire process was explained in detailed. There were no surprises because Mr. Morrell corresponded with me via email during the entirety of the case. The final award met my expectations and Mr. Morrell and his staff are very professional. I'm a very satisfied client and I appreciate all of your hard work and the negotiating to achieve my expectations.

Rivers was exceptional in keeping me informed throughout my process and staying honest with circumstances. Never made me feel inadequate, even when if I did have to ask questions. The firm assisted me HAPPILY anytime I had questions or needed further explanation on something that was happening. They did a great job on making sure I was informed and educated, at all times. They took excellent care of me and I would highly recommend Rivers Morrell to everyone. After one phone call, you will know it yourself.

I highly recommend River J. Morrell III as your attorney. When I needed someone to represent me in a highly sensitive and difficult case of STD infection, Rivers was the only attorney who was willing to help. After hearing rejections from over 10 attorney’s claiming I had no case because it could not be proven, Rivers validated my circumstance, stood next to me and fought diligently and professionally for me. I can’t tell you how much it meant to me for an attorney to finally believe my story and my plight and then take my case.
From my first contact with Rivers, he was compassionate, kind and completely honest about the merits of the case. He explained the challenges that could arise, yet was confident I had a good case against the individual who had wronged me. The evidence to support this case was intimate and sensitive. Rivers was consistent in handling it with the utmost respect and compassion. He responded very promptly to my phone calls and emails answering all of my questions thoroughly. He deposed the individual I was suing as professionally and skillfully as one could imagine. The person’s defense was left in shambles thanks to Rivers excellent inquiries during the deposition.
His associate, Isaac Yin, was just as professional and compassionate as Rivers. Isaac’s support during my emotionally charged and grueling deposition, was protective, kind and encouraging. Isaac was sympathetic to my terrible situation helping me through those difficult moments.
The support staff at Rivers’ office could not be more understanding or kind. The entire office became my advocate. Every contact was met with warmth, support and professionalism.
Rivers and Isaac used their breathe of knowledge and experience to settle my case to my full satisfaction. They handled the negotiations with the defendant’s attorney professionally, skillfully and assertively, insisting generous damages be awarded to me. Of course, in a case like this, one can never receive what one truly deserves, but Rivers Morrell fought my case and was able to represent me better than had I ever expected.
This was my fist dealings with an attorney for a civil lawsuit. I was unsure what to expect and afraid I would never find anyone willing to understand my pain and suffering after what had happened to me. Rivers proved me wrong. He proved to be a fine person with great sensitivity and professionalism. I very highly recommend Rivers for any personal injury case you may need help with. He and his staff are the very best a person could ask for.
