Family Law Attorney Matthew T. Morris
Mr. Morris was born and raised in Seaford, Delaware by two parents who instilled a German Shepard-like work ethic, a hunting dog’s drive, and a pit bull’s refuse-to-lose attitude in him from a young age. This competitive drive was evident throughout his youth and early adulthood as he was a perennial four sport star in baseball, football, basketball and track. Mr. Morris’ desire to be at the pinnacle of anything and everything shined through in his studies where he was consistently at the top of his class from kindergarten through his matriculation from Regent Law School in 2012. Left with an insatiable desire to be better than the best, Mr. Morris also pursued his Masters in Business Administration while simultaneously working legal internships at the Sussex County Public Defender’s Office in Delaware and the following summer at Shawe and Rosenthal, LLP in Baltimore, Maryland.
Mr. Morris’ legal career began to blossom with a stint at the Portsmouth Public Defender’s Office where he was fortunate enough to hone his litigation skill set underneath now Portsmouth Circuit Court Judge Brenda Spry, now Newport News Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court Judge Rebecca Robinson, and now Head Public Defender’s for the cities of Hampton, Chesapeake, and Portsmouth, Matt Johnson, Lakishi Stevenson, and Althea Mease, respectively. After leaving the Public Defender’s Office, Mr. Morris continued to hone his skills in his own private practice.
Now with two children of his own and the heightened obligation to ensure they absorb the same competitive fire and refuse-to-lose attitude he was taught, Mr. Morris has brought his skills as a negotiator and litigator to The Firm For Men. Mr. Morris’ passion for winning on the inside and humble yet unwavering demeanor on the outside make him the perfect trojan horse of an attorney. You can rest assured that he will strategically tailor an instantly adaptable game plan unique to your specific circumstances and the strengths and weakness of his opponent on the way to achieving your goals.
