In addition to being licensed to practice law in several jurisdictions, she is also a licensed Title Agent and is certified to issue title policies.

Ms. Morris participated in the Mock Trial Team and was accepted into the Sigma Tau Delta English Honors Society, winning several writing awards.
Ms. Morris obtained her Juris Doctor from the Western New England University School of Law. During law school, she participated in the law fraternity, Phi Alpha Delta and interned for several law firms gaining exposure to Personal Injury, Medical Malpractice, and Trust and Estate law.
Prior to co-founding St. Louis Morris, P.A., Ms. Morris practiced at a Connecticut law firm where she gained invaluable experience representing large clients, including corporations; major insurance companies; and New England’s largest casino in insurance defense, personal injury, and torts claims. She wrote complex memoranda, including appellate briefs and tribal law analyses.
Thereafter, Ms. Morris joined a Florida Real Estate and Commercial Litigation law firm where she represented large lenders in foreclosure, eviction, and other real property matters. In addition, she gained a large amount of experience in title examination and will and probate.
In August 2016, Ms. Morris co founded St. Louis Morris, P.A. with the desire and passion to create a firm that delivers exceptional representation and customer service to its clients. “At St. Louis Morris, we strive to ensure that every client receives the attention they deserve by giving each case thoughtful, thorough analysis and returning every call and email in a timely manner.”
Through Ms. Morris’s opportunities in practicing several, diverse areas of law, she gained a unique insight into the needs of clients, ranging from large corporations to individuals. “My goal is to give each client a voice. Every person’s concern and question are never trivial and if I can make at least one person feel that they are being listened to, I know I’ve done my job.”
Ms. Morris focuses her practice in the representation of clients in Real Estate, Bankruptcy, Wills & Trusts, Business, and various civil matters. She is an active member of the Broward County Bar Association, including the Real Property, Probate, and Trust Law Section; the Bankruptcy Bar Association of the Southern District of Florida; the Florida Association of Women Lawyers; the Hatian Lawyers Association, and is licensed to practice in the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Court.
“Many people get wrapped up in the identity and preconceived notions of what it means to be an attorney. Being an attorney is only one aspect of me much like every client is an individual and is first a mother, brother, and someone’s friend. I am first and foremost a person with a deep empathy for the needs of others and I strive to deliver my utmost attention, dedication, and strong advocacy to each client. Being an attorney is a means to make that happen.”
When Ms. Morris is not devoting her time to her practice, she enjoys traveling, music, working out, spending time by the ocean, and having fun with family and friends. She also enjoys spending time with her mother and grandmother who not only made it possible to practice law but also encouraged her to pursue her dreams. She is an active member of several volunteer organizations and resides in Pompano Beach, Florida.
