  • 2012 – “I could not have asked for better representation. Prior to choosing an attorney, I had consulted with several about my case. Attorney Morris’ confidence, sincerity, honesty, and track record won me over. I was impressed by her swift and thorough knowledge of my case as well as how quickly she responded to my calls and emails. Her knowledge and tenacity were evident as we attempted to negotiate with my son’s mother and her attorney and I believe that it was these traits along with her treating my case as if she were fighting for her own child that won me additional time with my son in the form of extra days, overnights, and shared transport. THANK YOU SO MUCH ELISHA! Signed, a VERY HAPPY father.”
