I hired the attorney, Brian C. Morris back in September 9, 2016 to get a child-support modification.
Firstly, I google search an attorney locally here in Spring Hill where I reside. I called Brian Morris, and spoke to a parallegal Christina explained my situation and she said that I can com into the office of Morris Law located at 13218 Spring Hill Dr. to meet with the attorney Brian Morris. After 20 minutes the parallegal took meet into an office and started to ask me questions and had me fill out paper work itemizing my income and debts.
I explained that my situation has change because I've become permament disable and my income has change. She said the attorney was not in the office however that he was able to do a telephone conference and talk to me. Brian Morris started the conversation asking me a serious of question. I explained that the chil-support was from California.
After all the question he said that he can represent me and that he can get a child-support modification, however the fee was $1500.00 to retain him for his services to file a petition and to represent me as my lawyer at a hearing. He requested copys of bank statements, bills, proof of rent, and utilties bills. All that he requested I provided. This took place all in the month of September 2016 when I retained Brian Morris for my attorney.
Several months past by and no phone calls, letters, or emails. I contact Brian Morris office in December, the parallegal Christina said that Brian was not in the office. She mention that the judge that handles the child-support was on vacation. She said to contact the office after the New Year 2017.
This when on for months, never able to talk to the attorney Brian Morris, and always hearing some excuse. I then google search Brian C. Morris and was shock to see so many complaints and suddendly I was i panic because I felt I ws a victim of fraud and that I paid Brian Morris and was not going to get any results. May 2017 I called the office and there was a recorded message stating that Brian Morris will no longer represent me and that I will be getting an email.
A week later received an email stating that Brian Morris ineligible to pratice law as of June 4, 2017. Meanwhile I've recieved a court hearing on June with no representation of an Attorney, because the attorney Brain Morris who I have retained for representation is unable to pratice law. And the fact that receiving SS Disability income I am unable to retain another attorney. Moving forward I appear at my hearing without an attorney, and when it was my turn in front of the judge.
The honorable Judge stated because this child-support is out-of-state. She was unable to do a modification. ThatI would have to hired an attorney in California. I was taken, fraud and lie to plus the attorney took payment for services not render.
Brian C. Morris took my $1500 cash. It seem the attorney Brian C. Morris had a trail of complaints dating back October 19, 2015 nothing positive about this lawyer.
The last I read was THE FLORIDA BAR Petitioner(s) v. BRIAN CHRISTOPHER MORRIS date February 9, 2017. This lawyer Brian C. Morris knowing about all these issue against him, could have contact me and said I can't represent you and refund my money.
But he is a crook cheating people. This is why many people don't trust lawyer because it's all about the money.
Reason of review: Services was not render.
Monetary Loss: $1500.
Preferred solution: Full refund.
I didn't like:
That i never met the attorney.
