Sean Morris’ determination and persuasive character makes him a true advocate for his clients.  He is driven, results-oriented and focused on resolution.  His level-headed mindset allows him to see both sides of the situation, play devil’s advocate, and consistently choose the path for his client which leads to the most successful outcome.

While his undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering is different from most attorneys’ undergraduate studies, it has actually worked to Sean’s advantage.  Sean’s ability to problem solve and listen to others has substantially contributed to his successful law practice, which is largely litigation-based.  Working primarily in the areas of civil and commercial litigation, he handles construction disputes, products liability claims, personal injury suits, and a variety of issues involving bankruptcy, and collection actions for banks and businesses.  His problem solving skills, teamwork, and leadership help him manage his clients’ cases from start to finish.  He is able to successfully overcome obstacles for clients- keeping an open mind about key issues his clients are facing, and effectively persuading either the adverse party to settle, or the jury to rule in his client’s favor. 

Sean’s leadership skills are also valued within the firm, where he sits on the firm’s Executive Committee, and volunteers for numerous leadership roles within the Missoula community.
