    Hattie Spencer
  • I think very highly of Mr. Morse’s office and would recommend them to anyone. It starts with the great feeling you get when you come to the office for the very first time and it has continued with the excellent customer service they always provided . I don’t even need to ask questions because the attorneys and paralegals are so on top of their jobs. They have always been there for me. I have a warm and friendly feeling anytime I stop in. It feels like home.

    Jacqueline Downing
  • It was a pleasure working with the paralegal that helped me with my case. I didn’t know what to do. Until I started working with The Mike Morse Law Firm, I felt lost trying to handle my claim. Mike Morse helped me get all benefits that I was entitled to.

    Aaron McCormick
  • It’s easy to describe The Mike Morse Law Firm…friendly, caring, and they get the job done.

    Starlynn Markiewicz
  • 28 years after my accident I received a letter from The Mike Morse Law Firm with an information brochure. I’m so glad I kept that letter because later on when AAA wrongly suspended my no fault benefits, I immediately contacted Mike. Mr. Morse took my case and did everything he said he would do. Now, more than 28 years after my accident, AAA is paying like they should be, and it’s all because of Mr. Morse’s hard work and expertise.

    Van Johnson
