Saxton & Stump Lawyers and Consultants
Morris joined Saxton & Stump last year after four years as a Pennsylvania deputy attorney general. He advises clients on matters ranging from criminal defense representation to civil and administrative investigations. Previously, he was a trial and appellate attorney in Philadelphia with a focus in white collar criminal and regulatory defense in federal and state courts.
“I chose a career in law because I wanted to do important work,” Morris said, and that is the path he has pursued. “When an individual or institution needs a lawyer, it is often because they are facing a matter of great significance, so the law was a natural fit. Practicing law also suited my interest in critical thinking, writing, problem solving, as well as the performative aspect of being a trial lawyer. It is a rich and fascinating career, and I certainly made the right decision.”
A self-described “white collar” attorney, he said his clients “often face risks on numerous fronts, and my job is to guide the client through these hazards and protect their interests along the way. It demands creativity, subject matter expertise, courtroom skills and a whole host of intangibles. The reward comes from overcoming these challenges and helping my clients … . I can’t imagine doing anything else.”
