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.
“My attorney displayed a vast amount of knowledge when handling my case, which meant so much to me because it was a very difficult time in my life. Alison assured me from the first visit that she would work hard to ensure that I am represented in the best way, focusing on my pension and all the other important issues that I was concerned about. During the whole process, Alison and her staff made me feel that they cared about my well-being, and that always made me feel that I had made the right decision by choosing Cordell & Cordell. Alison has a great future in representing this firm, and I am confident that other clients that choose this firm and [are] fortunate to have Alison as their attorney will be very satisfied with the firm. I can’t reiterate it enough, but thanks Alison, you are the best.”
“Alison has been very understanding of [my] unique situation. She has given me options to remedy situations that arise. Alison needs to be considered for a Partner with the firm. She is a subject-matter expert on various situations. I have been impressed with the compassion she has shown for me personally. She has been very professional and always on top of the issue. Cordell & Cordell can handle the most difficult, hostile, unpeaceful divorces in a professional, peaceful way. This is money well spent. They will work for you.”
“My divorce is over now , but I can truly say that my attorney, Alison Morriss, was the greatest in my opinion. Ms. Morris was always communicating with me in a timely manner, [and] she would reason with me and advise me of the best way to address issues that I felt [weren’t] right. … Alison would not let me have it my [way] because she knew what was best for me, and she was right. Her staff was great and professional and courteous towards me at all times, which means a lot when you are going through a divorce. … I cannot give enough positive comments about Ms. Morriss. She is the best.”
“Alison has been an outstanding lawyer, understanding the difficulty of my situation and giving me advice how to deal with the situation. This has helped put me at ease and at peace. Alison is dealing with things very professionally, with substance and reality. She’s kept me out of trouble. It’s been quite difficult, but Alison has helped me to deal with the situation.”
