I retained Debra for what turned out to be a three year high conflict divorce where the odds were stacked against me. Every step of the way Debra was professional, had a plan and handled everything. I was in contact daily with Debra and and always had her full attention. Debra is through! My case quickly jumped to many binders of information. Debra painstakingly gathered evidence and distilled it all down in to exhibits and summaries which were easy to understand with out having to wade through mountains of paperwork. When our judge was reading her findings at the end of trial she specifically commented on how through Debra's documentation and accounting was enabling her to move through the evidence much more efficiently. All this aside Debra cares about her clients and how the painful process of going through a divorce weighs on them. I had complete faith in Debra's handling of my case and highly recommend to anyone in search of representation to consider retaining her for your case.

Debra is exactly what you want when hiring an attorney, and definitely someone you want on your side. She is lightning speed at getting back to you, always keeps you in the know on your case, and puts in so much time and work.
She expects a lot from her clients, so be prepared to do your homework. At times it was stressful and seemed like a lot. However, anytime I thought it was excessive, Debra was right, and I'm glad she had me do it.
My case had a lot of twists and turns, but Debra knew what she was doing and did and amazing job.

Debra is a shark. In the beginning I was beyond stressed out with our situation. Debra provided us with a free consultation and during that I knew I were in good hands. I don't want to get into the specifics of the case, but in the end we were satisfied with the judgment and what we settled on with the parenting plan. A year after we settled our case, my ex started harassing me how the back pay child support was filed. Debra stepped in free of charge to handle that situation.

I interviewed several "big name" lawyers in Pierce County prior to speaking with Debra. Debra was the last person who I spoke to regarding my divorce, it was nothing more than a miracle to find this gem of a person! Debra eased my mind from the start, and it was crystal clear that she was on my side for the best outcome possible. What stood out most, was that she LISTENED to my life and story, taking it all in and planning prior to even hiring her, this is RARE. Debra is HIGHLY intelligent, thorough, and real - I had what should have been a simple divorce escalated by a very spiteful and bitter spouse however Debra was able to see things coming before they even happened, was ALWAYS prepared with a plan, and executed it FLAWLESSLY. She did this while continually making me feel as though I had skin in the game, and that I was in control, driving so to speak. I will say that if you aren't hands on and don't care about your future then Debra might not be for you, she expects a lot out of her clients, which is admirable. When you are a winner like Debra is, you don't take losing lightly, so of course she is going to keep you and your case on track. I would recommend this winner to anyone who wants a close relationship with an attorney, who wants to be informed of everything as it takes place, who wants a winner on their side, and needs someone willing to fight and make sure that the law is being upheld. Debra is lightning fast at returning emails and phone calls, she doesn't take any crap, and she spells things out plainly and simply without sugarcoating, she is an honest gal who truly is passionate about her career and reputation. We never made it to trial, but let me tell you I almost wish we had because of all of the preperation that she did in case we ended up there it undoubtedly would have been lights out so to speak. If you want a fierce, loyal, personable attorney who you can feel comfortable with and even consider a friend as you go through the dark storm of a divorce then go with Debra, you won't regret it.

Debra was literally the best I could have in my corner. She help guide me through the process and educated me the whole way through. I am very happy of the outcome and will keep her on as my lawyer for as long as necessary.

Debra is not only an amazing lawyer, but an absolutely amazing person, that has no problem calling it as she sees it. I had a very long, drawn out divorce, and it took a hefty toll on the family. In the end I got custody of our three kids. I also got them back on track with school and life. When taking Debra on as a lawyer be prepared to be extensively educated, you will need it. If it wasn't for her, my family wouldn't be were we are now. Back on track and heading in the right direction. One of the most important lessons I learned from this. Is that the kids well being, mental health, and stability are the most important factor in all if this. They can not have that when both parents have lost touch with reality. Words cannot express my appreciation for Debra Morse, the world needs more people like her.

I am an active duty military mom and needed to start from scratch a child custody/support case about my then 7 year old son. It was a very long and VERY frustrating for me, but I don't know what I would have done without her to walk me through everything! There was nothing I couldn't go over with her or ask her questions about that she did not answer for me. She is very honest and very direct. She was referred by a friend and I am so glad she did! I wouldn't hesitate to call her again!

My case was a high conflict, complex case. From the beginning, Debra approached it with a confidence that helped me focus, remain calm and realize it would be over soon. We had many court dates, all met with professional, precise instructions for me, and thorough representation from Debra. The end result was what I had hoped for, my kids safe with me. And my Ex being held some what responsible for the mess/trauma she had caused us all.

I would highly recommend Debra's 30 min consultation. I originally approached Debra to mediate. After the constitution I ended up hiring her to represent me in my divorce. It was not an easy process. Debra does expect a lot from her clients, but it's for a good reason. The one thing that really stands out about Debra is at the beginning of every conversation we had the first thing she asked was "how are your girls?" She is a compassionate attorney towards her clients, and a shark in the courtroom at the same time. Being a single dad with 2 teenage daughters and getting primary custody is no small feat in the state of Washington. The ass whooping she dealt in trial was almost jaw dropping. I was virtually unscathed in the final ruling and I owe it all to Debra's experience and professionalism. I would 100% recommend Debra and her assistant to anyone going through the divorce process. Thank you again Debra for all your help.
