Elisha Morris is a highly-skilled attorney with a degree of emotional intelligence, rarely seen in divorce proceedings. She helped me focus on tangible legal objectives as I negotiated the emotional pain of my divorce. Elisha was committed to obtaining the best outcomes for my children and me. She provided me with insightful legal advice, tempered with realistic expectations. Elisha Morris is a strong negotiator and fierce advocate for her clients. Do not confuse her compassion for weakness; she is an iron hand in a velvet glove!
Elisha was my attorney for my second divorce. Despite her busy schedule, she took the time to understand me and my situation personally. I had my frustrations during the process for sure and there were times I felt like maybe we weren’t pushing hard enough. But I was wrong. Feeling like that when you’re divorcing a freeloader trying to drag things out and take everything they can get away with comes easily to me. But Elisha knew what was in my best interest and offered sage advice born of experience and understanding people at every turn. The situation with my pension was a bit complicated and was open to interpretation about whether it should be treated like a military pension or a civilian pension, basically. Elisha really proved her value in a concrete way near the end when she carefully researched the case law and made an argument so strong the other side abandoned their attempt to take a larger portion of my hard-earned pension. She also helped protect a significant share of my 401k based on negotiating that the date it would be divided would be the date of the MSA, which was only fair given that we were prepared to move forward and they chose to delay (again). So, anyway, in my case, Elisha was great from start to finish and I’d highly recommend her. She’s worth every penny of her retainer. Hopefully my story is helpful to someone out there going through the mess that is divorce. It seems to always end up more complicated than it seems at first heading into it, so do yourself a favor and hire someone solid that knows their stuff like Elisha Morris.
I can honestly say that I had complete confidence and trust in Elisha from start to finish. Her professionalism and dedication were second to none, and the entire case went smoother than I ever could have imagined. She also brought things to my attention that I hadn’t even considered, and offered exceptional advice.
I never told her this, but I had a rather nasty experience a few years ago with an attorney that ended up doing time and my faith in the profession was tarnished, to say the least. Elisha single handedly restored my faith in the legal profession, and she didn’t even know she did it.
I would recommend Elisha Morris without a moment’s hesitation. She is a top notch lawyer and person.
The title of my review should be enough. Elisha L Morris was the best choice I made in obtaining representation for my divorce. And if I ever find myself needing the same representation again (I hope not to), I would hire Elisha again. Divorce “sucks”, but Elisha made the legal and administrative paperwork -part “suck” less. Elisha was (1) helpful (which, during a life event such as divorce, is often nonexistent), (2) effective and efficient (which is what everyone should expect from their legal counsel), and (3) affordable (which, although it was not a top priority in my search, is an obvious benefit during an life event, such as divorce, of financial uncertainty). Do yourself a favor – hire her to handle the legal work that she’s more qualified to do than you – the immediate “payback” is in your “piece-of-mind”, which may by greater than the results of your situation.
Just do it, pay the retainer, it’s worth it. You’ll always have the upper hand; the more reasonable proposals, the better articulated documentation, the more personal lawyer-to-client relationship, etc. If you’re overwhelmed and anxious and cut her off seventy-five times, she speaks calmly the seventy-sixth time, even though you don’t deserve it, because shes really there for you. She’s just the whole package, already in the court room before you or the other party get there, ready to carry you through the darkness. I wish I was kidding, but it’s actually that dramatic.
