True Blessing

Attorney Jeff Dean has been a true blessing to my mom, me, & my family. Him and his team have been a tremendous help with things revolving around my dad’s passing due to a distracted driver coming into his lane and hitting him on his motorcycle. If you have need for an attorney, we highly recommend this attorney.

Wonderful People

I just want to say Marcus Morris, and Jeff Dean helped my husband and I in 2009.I will never forget what they did for us, I was so worried but they came and I was at ease after that. What they did I had never seen happen before from any Law office. I will recommend them to any one, wonderful people, the best in my book. We will never forget, we love you.

No Need to Look Any Further.

Marcus Morris represented my nephew on a Criminal Case that was out of Catoosa County GA. It was very nice to see how he was able to relate and bring together all the entities involved in such a cohesive way. My nephew’s case, per all of Mr. Morris’s hard work, was ultimately Nolle Proc’d (Dismissed) much to my and the family’s happiness. I wanted to thank him every time that I ran into him, and the others involved in the case as well. It would be hard to find a better Attorney out there, and I do not need to look any farther than Mr. Morris.

Two of the Best Attorneys

Morris and Dean are two of the best attorneys I have ever met. However, they are much more than this. They are true advocates for their clients and diligent in everything they do. They truly care and are deeply protective and respectful of their clients, who often become more like family to them. I have known them for several years, and during this time they have always made themselves available to me and have had my best interest at heart. They represented us in a case for my husband after he was severely injured by electrocution. We were very satisfied with the result. At time, they have referred me to other professionals if they thought I would best represented by another more experienced in certain aspects of the law. In short, l they are not only wonderful attorneys, but truly decent people that treat their clients like they matter.

Jeff Dean is absolutely one of the best lawyers that we have worked with and hired. He handled our entire case with professionalism and conducted himself in such a wonderful manner, he treated us like we were family, he kept us updated regularly and kept us optimistic, he went above and beyond his job role and he’s one you can trust. His manner in the courtroom made a huge impression because he was so well spoken and presented the evidence in such a respectful way and he actually made the other attorney look like a clown. We will definitely use Mr. Dean for anything we may need in the future. He’s always kind, greets you with a smile, calm, centered, and knows his stuff. A+ Attorney in our opinion.

Excellent Lawyer, Wonderful Man

Mr. Dean worked over the course of 5 years on my vehicle accident case, through many problems and issues brought about by the defendants attorney. Mr. Dean kept me informed and well educated on all of the issues. He was caring, took a lot of time to listen to any concerns and worries I had, and always had my best interests at heart. He presented a wonderful case to the jury, in a way that was easily understood, no grand standing. He showed the jury the person I am. I will always be grateful to Mr. Dean for his professionalism and kindness, along with his professional staff. He was always available for any questions I had. I couldn’t have been in better hands with any other attorney.

Great lawyer

At first I was apprehensive about consulting any lawyers whatsoever, but Mr. Dean completely changed my opinion of legal consultation. He was responsive, honest, helpful, and understanding. His law firm literally changed my life for the better. The results were even better than what I was hoping for. I highly recommend this law firm if you’re ever considering legal help. You will not be disappointed.

Great Lawyer …. extremely professional

Jeff is an excellent attorney. He has worked with me on multiple business affairs and has been a super asset in the last years.

Criminal Defense Client

Mr. Morris recently represented my family member in a criminal defense case and did an excellent job at a reasonable price. He got the best outcome possible for the case. I was especially impressed that he treated my family member as a human being and showed concern for their future instead of treating them as just another case.

Mr. Marcus Morris !!!!!!!!!! Is my top attorney I have recommended him to everyone I know that’s going to need one .. He honestly knows what his doing… I give this man so much credit you could never go wrong with him!!!!

Best Possible Outcome

Marcus Morris represented myself in a DUI case in 2013. In my case, I was very close to the legal BAC level. Mr. Morris was able to have my charge reduced to reckless driving. Due to the representation of Marcus Morris, I received the absolute best possible outcome for my situation. Without his representation I would have faced far greater…

Mr. Marcus was so helpful with my case. Not only did he get me less time to serve but he kept a check on my family while I was in jail. He has a big heart and is not like what you hear about most lawyers. He is cut from a different mold than the rest. Thank you Mr. Morris for all you did for me and my family.
