My calling is to provide service to others. Prior to starting law school, I was a social worker and a nursing assistant. Being an attorney has allowed me to continue to be of service to others, while retaining a passion for my work.

One of my greatest strengths as a lawyer is how well I relate to people. I place a high value on my relationships with others. As a result I have been rewarded with many loyal clients and friends. I am a strong advocate for my clients, and respected as a negotiator by opposing counsel. I take pride in my keen sense of ethics and high integrity.

I have engaged in the general practice of law in the Twin Cities since 1986. From 1986 to 1996, I practiced law in two small law firms. As a general practitioner, I developed an ability to get up to speed on many areas of law very quickly.

I started Morris Law Firm in 1996.  In recent years, I have focused my practice into three primary practice areas:

  • Estate planning and estate administration
  • Serving as general counsel to business entities
  • Family Law

    I have significant experience counseling, negotiating and advocating for my clients. I assist clients to establish and operate Minnesota business entities, including corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships, limited partnerships and limited liability partnerships.

    I draft and review all types of documents and contracts during my twenty-four years of private practice. Contracts I have routinely drafted over the years include:
  • Trust Agreements
  • Wills
  • Financial Powers of Attorney
    Buy-sell Agreements
  • Employment Agreements
  • Independent Contractor Agreements
  • Settlement Agreements
  • Asset Purchase and Sale Agreements
  • Lease Agreements
  • Loan and Financing Agreements
  • Commercial Real Estate Agreements
  • Residential Real Estate Agreements
  • Pre-nuptial Agreements
  • Marital Dissolution Agreements

    I would appreciate the opportunity to take care of your legal needs and I encourage you to contact me.
