Biography

Morris earned his Juris Doctorate at Georgia State University's College of Law in 2013 and his Bachelor of Science in International Affairs from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2006. After completing his undergraduate degree, Morris considered a career in academic philosophy. This plan changed after Morris completed the "Philosophy of Law" course at Georgia State University, when he realized that while philosophers typically end their discussions with journal entries, jurists end theirs with court orders backed by the power of the state.

Morris has wide-ranging litigation experience, including family law, criminal defense, and personal injury casework, with an overwhelmingly successful track record. He is a graduate of the Bill Daniel Trial Advocacy program, an intensive series of training courses led by the best criminal defense attorneys in the state, and he has specialized negotiation training from Georgia State University.

Q. I got a dui which was my third. It was 2 years and 1 month ago. I have not heard from the courts or got a letter.
A: Sometimes cases do get lost in the shuffle, but it's never something to rely upon. The citation likely gave you a court date. If you missed that, there's probably a warrant out for your arrest and a suspension on your driver's license. Otherwise, see if you can find out the status of your case by looking on the court's website. Note that calling the court on the phone may rekindle the case if it is just dormant. Let me know if you need more help. If you've lost the citation, you're probably going to have to check numerous websites.
