Sr. Regional Managing Attorney

About Alison K. Morriss, Sr. Regional Managing Attorney

Originally wanting to practice corporate law, Alison K. Morriss had a change of heart during law school when she volunteered with a family law attorney at a legal aid clinic.

“I really fell in love with working one-on-one with a client, helping them through one of the worst experiences of their life, and being able to see the positive results,” she said.

A crucial aspect of being a successful attorney is creating a relationship where a client feels they can trust their attorney, according to Ms. Morriss.

“We have to know all the details, no matter how seemingly insignificant, and that requires open and honest communication between both the attorney and the client,” she said.

Real-Life Experiences
Reviews from Our Past Clients
“It took years for me to come to a decision to end my marriage. I sought a law firm that is focused and prepared for trial if need be, and seeks to give me the best outcome possible. Cordell and Cordell has performed very well and is very supportive during this difficult time. I have full confidence in my representation and recommend them.”
– Mason B.
“Divorce is hard enough without trying to find a Lawyer who will truly work for you. I had several conversations with Lawyers that seemed only interested in winning somehow. No one wins in a divorce. I should have went to Cordell & Cordell first so I would have avoided a lot of headaches. I met a group of people that genuinely care for you.”
– Mark L.
