The Morris Law Firm consists only of me and my paralegal of 20 years, Robin Touchet. Here we are very laid back. When you meet with me you will see I almost always wear jeans and cowboy boots. Clients frequently comment how relaxed they are in my office, which makes the experience much less stressful. Do not take this to mean I will be other than very aggressive and vocal when dealing with your opponent!!I pride myself on one on one interaction. Robin handles many of the routine activities, but when it comes down to the substantive discussions you will always meet with both me and Robin. Frequently you hear horror stories of clients not knowing the status of their cases. Here at the Morris Law Firm, we try our best to meet personally with every client at least once a month. If there have been no substantive developments since our last meeting, we simply sit down for a chat. So, if you would prefer one on one legal representation instead of large law firm formality, you should consider the Morris Law Firm for your legal representation.Other than my attendance at Centenary College of Louisiana and LSU Law School, I have lived in Lake Charles my whole life, and have been a litigation attorney since 1979. For a good portion of my legal career I represented insurance companies and employers. The last 10 years my emphasis has been on representing people who have been injured in any way, including on the job. Having represented insurance companies and employers, I am very familiar with their procedures and attitudes, and am better able to serve my clients. I do not charge for the initial consultation.
