A new study on civil citations for juvenile offenders revealed that just 4% who complete the civil citation programs re-offend. Through civil citation, instead of facing arrest, juvenile offenders would do community service and write apology letters to their victims. The Children’s Campaign and the authors of the recent study are now calling for an expansion of civil citations for juvenile offenders in the state of Florida. #civilcitation   #Florida

Theft allegations in the state of Florida can result from burglary, shoplifting, and grand theft, among other scenarios.  These crimes are taken extremely seriously and can result in jail time, fines and a permanent criminal record, which can impact future job opportunities. If charged, it is important to have a strong defense team on your side.

The Morris Law firm understands how to find weakness in the prosecution’s case and will aggressively fight on behalf of all clients to pursue favorable outcomes such as case dismissal. #theft   #PinellasCounty

In Florida, a person can be charged with various marijuana offenses, including possession, cultivation or trafficking. This could mean jail time, expensive fines and a criminal record. All of these offenses also could be charged on the federal level, which could carry harsher penalties and mandatory minimums. If you are facing a state or federal offense, it is important to build a strong defense in your case.

Domestic violence charges are some of the most commonly prosecuted offenses in both the St. Petersburg and Clearwater area. That being said, it is not uncommon for people to falsely accuse a spouse or ex-spouse of domestic violence to get ahead in either a divorce proceeding or child custody case. Regardless, it is important for anyone accused of this serious offense to consult with an experienced attorney.

As a former prosecutor, Melinda Morris understands how to build strong defense strategies for her clients and will aggressively fight to clear their name. #domesticviolence   #StPetersburg

I had a ticket witch I feel was wrongfully cited. I maybe spent 10 minutes in total working with this professional law group. They got all the information needed from me and went right to work. Within the week I got a phone call with an email dismissing the citation. Had a known how good they were I'd have called them earlier. Thanks Morris Law Firm!!!

DO NOT USE A PUBLIC DEFENDER UNTIL YOU CALL THIS FIRM, SEE ABOUT A THREE MONTH PAYMENT PLAN, IT IS SO WORTH PAYING THEM, ASK YOURSELF WHAT A CRIMINAL RECORD IS WORTH IN THE LONG RUN!! I can't say enough about the Morris Law firm. I Was referred to this firm and the most miraculous thing Happened. My son had a case and Pasco County had been screwing with him with their bureaucratic nonsense for years. This case began over 2 years ago and I have used 3 different attorneys to represent him to try to resolve this case. What was interesting was that when Attorney Morris and Shapiro agreed to take this misdemeanor case they said they would do it for $2,500 as a flat fee when every other attorney had billed me by the hour. They went to Pasco County Courthouse and in ONE court hearing resolved ALL the issues that all the other attorneys had been unable to fix over a two year period. My son is finally finished with Pasco, if we had retained the Morris law Firm in the beginning, it would have been over quickly. We would not have had to go through years of pain. I'm talking about all the pretrial hearings, the probation hearings, the threats of the state attorney to go to trial, and all the thousands of dollars and stress that we have been forced to undergo, until Melinda stepped in and the situation was completely resolved. When a minor complication did come up, attorney Morris stepped in and said that she would handle it personally instead of me having to go back to court and handle it myself.This was above and beyond the call of duty and I could not give her a better reference and I highly recommend that you call the Morris law firm before you talk to anyone else you will be very pleasantly surprised at the representation and how fair the cost is compared to the resolution of your case. Attorneys Morris and Shapiro receive my highest commendation.

I would highly recommend Ms. Morris and her law firm to anyone who is needs an experienced and knowledgeable attorney with affordable fees. She’s dedicated, thorough and knows the law. I am convinced without her expertise my case could have gone very badly for me? I am very much satisfied with her professionalism, fees, expertise, service and most importantly, my results. I would recommend her to friends and family and her representation rose above my expectations.

WITHOUT DOUBT I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND EVERYONE TO HIRE THE MORRIS LAW FIRM. SHE AND HER STAFF ARE PROFESSIONAL, FRIENDLY, AND GET THE JOB DONE AT A REASONABLE COST...A RARE COMBINATION. HER ABILITY BOTH IN THE COURTROOM AND BEHIND THE SCENES TO AVOID THE COURTROOM MAKES HER A TOP PICK AS MY ATTORNEY, AND THOSE WHO I HAVE REFERRED TO HER. CALL THEM FIRST AND WAIT FOR HER RETURN CALL, SHE WILL GET BACK TO YOU, DAYS, NIGHTS, WEEKENDS! SHE HAS CONSISTENTLY SHOWN THE ABILITY TO LISTEN, RESEARCH, TALK TO THE STATE ATTORNEY AND MAKE A PLAN FOR YOU THAT WORKS. THERE IS NO BETTER ATTORNEY AT ANY PRICE.

Morris Law firm just represented me in a case to reduce my court ordered restitution payments that I make to Florida every month. Seth Shapiro was my attorney and did an OUTSTANDING job! He was very easy to get a hold of(including weekends & after hours), he explained every step of the process (in terms I was able to understand) & he got me a very favorable outcome. I would HIGHLY recommend Morris law firm & Seth Shapiro for any legal issues you might have. It was a very positive experience(and believe me having a positive experience when dealing with the "Florida Dept of Corruptions",,,, I mean "Corrections" is as rare as a unicorn). They were very fairly priced and I would use them again(let's hope I don't have to) should I ever need them. Thank you Seth!
