Experience and Background

Attorney Morris was born in Montreal, Canada and lived there until the age of 15 when his family moved to Florida. While living in Canada, he became a competitive swimmer and continued to swim after moving to Florida. After graduating high school, he attended Louisiana State University for one year then transferred to Florida State University where he graduated and swam collegiately at both schools.

After graduating college, he worked for his parents at their printing shop then decided to attend law school because his cousin, an attorney, possessed a tremendous drive and tenacity to help others, and he wanted to emulate just that.

Personal Life

He remains an active swimmer and is a member of New Albany Master’s Swim Team. Even at the age of 56, he is a nationally ranked swimmer and competes at the U.S. Masters Nationals each year, and has been a member of 2 National Championship relays at the National Meet in 2016 & 2017.

In addition, he coaches for the New Albany Aquatic Club, where he is the Lead Coach of the Typhoon and Hurricane Group and the Senior IM Coach. He was the head swim coach at Westerville North High School for 4 years and had swimmers qualify for the OHSSA State meet each year. He had a State Champion and had swimmers achieve top 5 Podium finishes, including 3 swimmers who achieved All-American Status as swimmers and students.

The most important part of his life, however, is family. Attorney Morris has been married for 28 years and has two children. His oldest daughter is a graduate of The Ohio State University with a degree in Education and coaches with Attorney Morris at New Albany Aquatic Club. His youngest daughter is a Graduate of Miami University in Oxford, Ohio with a degree in Finance. He has had the pleasure of working with his wife for over 20 years, who acts as his legal assistant and office manager.
