Mark Morris, the family law attorney at Farmer & Morris Law PLLC, is a remarkable attorney. With more than 10 years of experience in and out of the court room, Mark stands as one of the best family law attorneys in Rutherford County; he was voted best attorney for Rutherford County in 2011-2015. This year Mark retained me as a family law client and guided me through my separation and custody case. I could not have asked for a more hard working and caring attorney. He has some of the best qualities of a top attorney, to name of few:1. perseverance and dogged determination, exploiting all avenues and never giving up2. integrity and honesty3. knowledge of the intricacies of the law, especially family law4. calm demeanor but yet unabashed in his stand for his clients5. sharp minded, and excellent at negotiating and keeping both parties calm to the extent he possibly can6. communication skills of the highest caliber in and out of the court room

It would have been nice to get my lump sum Social Security payment at the same time as my attorney Andrea Farmer got paid for her services. It took 14 months for me to be paid. I was informed by Social Security that she should never have been paid before I was. The few times I requested for her, or her paralegal Ashley to find out why, I would get a call back a few days later, from Ashley, telling me they could not find out why....just sayin'...My credit is now in the toilet, as I had to try to live on my credit cards. I got my monthly check, but that only paid what little I could divvy up on current bills. I reckon I may get around to paying her for the paperwork...maybe a few more months from now...if I feel like it. Thanks Girls!!! I appreciate the destruction of a relatively decent credit score!

In one of the most difficult times of my life, I faced a mountain that I never thought I would have to face—divorce and custody of my daughter. Complex as it was, with details that could have been overwhelming, Mark made it so simple for me. He informed me about every step that I needed to take, and at the same time was so efficient. Being dedicated and committed, Mark always cared about my best interest. What could have been a miserable situation was handled so gracefully. Mark is a very special attorney who gives his heart to help his clients. I am so grateful he represented me. Kim

Mr. Mark Morris is an outstanding attorney! He helped protect my son from his mother by having her rights removed. Mr. Morris always returned my calls or answered my emails regarding my case in a punctual manner. He is a dedicated Christian and family man that will always represent you well in court. He is extremely well respected in the judicial system. His fees are very reasonable as attorneys goes but you can believe that you get your money's worth. If you want a darn good lawyer contact Mr. Morris

Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
