Trial Lawyers Dedicated to Personal Injury

The firm began in 2001 in Shreveport, LA, by Trey Morris, and initially practiced many different types of law from corporate, family, and insurance. Quickly, the firm found its niche in personal injury law and its edge in trial preparation and litigation. As a plaintiff law firm, the initial challenge was to succeed against larger, more established firms and corporations. The key was preparation. A firm has to spend time and money on experts, jury analysis, focus groups, and document review to force the defense to come to the table with a fair offer and necessary compensation. Preparation signals to opposing counsel that the defense of their clients will be challenging. Many times, this is what is necessary to settle a case.

“The fastest way to settle a case is to prepare for trial. Insurance companies know which firms will go to court and which will not. It is important to choose a firm that will go the distance.”  Trey Morris

How The Firm Helps Clients

In the wake of a severe accident, there are several important issues that all parties must address. Unfortunately, victims of accidents often cannot focus on their or their families’ recovery and handle all the associated legal affairs. Morris & Dewett developed a legal workflow that navigates the legal complexities of bringing a case to completion. A priority in the process is communication and keeping the client fully informed. The burden is taken off the client but keeps them fully informed and included in the legal process. It frees our clients to focus on their health, recovery, and caring for their families.

The process starts when a client retains Morris & Dewett. We go to work and relieve the clients of the legal burdens while helping them gain the proper medical attention. We contact the other party’s insurance company, investigate the evidence in the case, contact all relevant witnesses, line up expert testimony, depose opposition witnesses, and ultimately bring the case to a satisfactory conclusion.
